is a 2003 Bollywood
film starring Anil Kapoor
and Rani Mukerji
. It was directed
by Sudhir Mishra
Avinash (Anil Kapoor
) comes to Calcutta
to search for his only son and finds himself engulfed with too many people interested in him. His only lead is a telephone number given to him by a cop before coming to Calcutta.As soon, as he lands in Calcutta, he needs a place to stay, in a chawl, in Calcutta, here, he meets up with Reema/Bulbul (Rani Mukherjee
), a novelist, who is supposed to be doing some research for her novel. The room that Avinash gets is occupied by Bulbul. She refuses to vacate, and stays on, and Avinash, stays there too (though tradition bound he sleeps out-side the room).
There are flashbacks in the story. Sanjana (Manisha Koirala
) and Avinash once lived in Calcutta
with their only child, a son. One day, Avinash witnessed a crime being committed and came to the assistance of the victim, and took him to hospital. This did not augur well with his assailants, and they killed Sanjana and abducted their child. The police was involved, but unable to trace the child.
A heartbroken and desperate Avinash apparently decides to take matters in his own hands and begins inquiring. His inquiries take him to Mumbai via the Calcutta Mail, and this is where he will find out whether his son is alive or not, or whether he himself has been lured into a deadly trap.
This movie is based on the 1998 Telugu film Choodalani Vundi
