Aetbaar - 2004


The film revolves a psychotic man Aryan (John Abraham) who has killed his father. The film opens up with a stylish sequence featuring the car accident that changed Aryan?s life. A schoolgirl Ria (Bipasha Basu) is coming home from school and bumps into a few bike riders, one of them being Aryan. That sparks a love in Aryan?s eyes that only spells obsession. Ria?s parents Dr. Ranvir Malhotra (Amitabh Bachchan) and mother are wary of her future but it is Dr. Malhotra that is overly protective as usual. Naturally he becomes worried for her safety and asks her to stay out of trouble. That which she can?t. It doesn?t take long for Ria to see a violent side of Aryan who instructs her to not be a minute late for a meeting or to shed an eye on another. Aryan gets aggressive telling her that if anyone is more beautiful than her he will set them a fire.

A string of incidents occur thereafter and Aryan just becomes more violent. When push comes to shove and Dr. Malhotra learns of Aryan?s true ways and confronts him, Ria is elsewhere realizing that Aryan is not such a nice man. Dr. Malhotra shows his daughter the news item, which reveals that Aryan murdered his father in a fire and Ria goes to confront him. Foolishly, she falls for his sob story and tells her parents that she will not stay away from him. The script by Robin Bhatt is pretty straight forward leaving nothing much to the imagination but to just wait and see how it plays out. The rest therefore must lie within the other aspects of the film, which is where the film gains and loses a few points
