Sheesha (2005) Story:
Businesswoman Sia Malhotra lives a wealthy lifestyle in Bangkok, along with her twin, Ria, who is deaf and dumb due to a neurological disorder. She meets with Raj Oberoi, and both fall in love. Their endeavors to cure Ria are all in vain. Sia plans to travel to the United States to improve her business, and has no one to look after Ria. So she decides to get married to Raj so that he could move in with Ria and look after her. Raj agrees, and both obtain a marriage certificate from Pattaya City Hall, and Sia departs for America. Sia does not know that after her return she will be a suspect in the brutal killing of a female Caucasian, Diana, and will not be permitted to leave Bangkok; and she will face further trauma and shock when she finds that her husband has been sexually molesting her handicapped sister.
Sheesha (2005) Movie Review:
One expects a lot of sex and exposure from a Neha Dhupia vehicle post Julie, and for once, the hype doesn't disappoint. She didn't look all that great in her debut vehicle Qayamat, but here, she not only stuns with her finely tanned look, but tears up her femme fatale role with some decent acting chops. The glimmer of talent seen in Julie (when she was actually acting as opposed to getting felt up by two disgusting male costars) is still present. Sonu Sood is a good match for tall, dusky Dhupia and cuts a finely sculpted physique, which is more than I can say of Yash Tonk or Sanjay Kapoor. He plays second fiddle to Dhupia (who plays good girl/bad girl in a double role), but the two share some remarkable chemistry. The sexual tension is adequately built up and, for an erotic thriller with little/no/implied nudity, the movie's fairly absorbing. The story is rather pedestrian, but if you can overlook that, you'll enjoy the chemistry between the two leads, the stylish flair, and dark ambiance of the mystery. Indian noir...who'd have thought?
