| Despite some sloppy mistakes, a really, really good film.
"Dhokha" is a frustrating film to watch in some ways. While it earns an 8 from me, I easily could have given it a 9 or possibly a 10. But a few sloppy mistakes in the film simply shouldn't have been there. First, the sound was very poor....sounding like many of the actors were performing in a closet. I have no idea why, but the leading man was dubbed by someone else. Second, in a scene early in the movie a doctor is yelling for blood donors...saying he needed type AB+ blood (which is pretty rare). I am not a doctor but I know folks with AB+ blood can also receive O+, B+ or A+ blood....pretty much most people actually. Third, late in the movie, the hero thinks he's being followed and when he looks behind him, a dark car is behind him on a divided highway....but when seen from any other direction, the road is NOT divided. Sloppy stuff. Yet despite some sloppy work here and there, the movie is still excellent....and you should see it.

Zaid (Muzammil Ibrahim) is an excellent cop and you can see this as he's investigating a terror bombing. But despite doing a great job with both Hindu and Muslim suspects, he soon finds himself a suspect as well! Why? Becauses his wife, it turns out, was the bomber! Zaid could not accept this and is shocked when he's taken into police custody and grilled. When they decide he's innocent, he's still mistrusted and hated...and he's determined to not only prove his innocence but find out why his wife did such a horrible thing.

I wonder how this film played in India. This is because the film not only attacks jihadists but also looks at how unjust police actions often spawn these terror bombers. And, the ending seemed a bit idealistic. But the film had a lot to say and said it very well...and left you feeling that perhaps this cycle might be broken one day. Worth seeing and very compelling.
