Flawed script, mediocre film-making, but a decent thriller nonetheless.
I quite enjoyed Vikram Bhatt's Inteha despite its expected flaws. The film is very average in terms of both writing and film-making, it's cliché, exaggerated, and like almost every other post-2000 Bhatt production -- it's unoriginal. However, despite everything the film was pretty entertaining and the suspense was quite successful in some instances. The main reason the film actually was worth a watch is, first, its music, and secondly, the leading lady, played by the lovely Vidya Malvade. She is a graceful, elegant and beautiful young lady, and though her acting is not great and at several points she overdoes her emotions, she clearly tries her best and as Nandini, the smart, loving and caring elder sister, manages to leave a mark. The same cannot be said about Nauheed Cyrusi, who plays her spoiled younger sister. She is simply annoying and does not convince in any way. Ashmit Patel is expressionless and unimpressive as the bad guy. Anu Malik's soundtrack is fantastic and gives the film a certain charm the script seemed to lack. "Dhalne Lagi Hai Raat", "Yun Hi Dil Ko Agar", "Ab Humse Akele" all are very melodious and fun to listen to. This film is not good, but it's not that bad either, and it may certainly provide a decent watch for the entire family.
