My Thoughts:
This is a movie I got in the Horror Classics: 100 Movie Pack that I got cheap from Mill Creek Entertainment. Unfortunately... but not unexpected... the quality leaves a bit to be desired. The image seemed to have a slight blur to it... and there was a slight hissing to the audio in some scenes. I wasn't too thrilled with the movie itself either. I found my attention drifting away from the movie. Ending up doing other things while the movie played in the background. But while I didn't get much out of the movie itself... I did find I liked the ending quite a bit. I just wish that the movie up till that point was better then what it is.


My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

I was looking forward to this one since I first saw the revised opening theme music in Bollywood style on Youtube. It made the impression to me that this episode is done with some affection to Bollywood. Also I thought it would take place on a Bollywood movie set (which would haven't been that far-fetched because Bollywood likes to go shoot abroad). But sadly, this all wasn't the case. They just called it "Bollywood Homicide" because Indians are involved. There was a Bollywood dance routine, but just a small rehearsal with some simple choreography. Not really worth of Bollywood. As was the music used (though you could faintly hear a song from Kabhi Khuchi Kabhie Gham in the background in one scene).
It would have been the perfect chance to invite some Bollywood actors (even if only from the B- or C-List), but instead we got some unknown American actors with Indian heritage. The only one known to me was Sendhil Ramamurthy from Heroes. But I never really liked him.
Also the mystery was nothing special. I knew from the first appearance of the perpetrator that she was the one.
