Aksar is a 2006 Indian Hindi-language thriller film directed by Anant Mahadevan and produced by Narendra Bajaj and Shyam Bajaj. The film features Emraan Hashmi, Udita Goswami and Dino Morea in the lead roles. The film was released on 3 February 2006 and although it was not critically acclaimed, it was a commercial success. The story revolves around a millionaire Rajveer Singh (Dino Morea) who hires Sheena Roy (Udita Goswami) as his fashion consultant. Sheena is engaged to her boyfriend, Karan (Emraan Hashmi), who is a struggling musician. Rajveer becomes obsessed with Sheena and offers her a luxurious life in exchange for her affections. Sheena is taken aback by Rajveer's proposal and struggles to make a decision. Eventually, she agrees to spend a night with Rajveer in exchange for 50 lakhs. However, things take a dark turn when Rajveer is found murdered the next morning and Sheena becomes the prime suspect in the case.

The film is set in a luxury hotel and has all the elements of a thriller with its twists and turns. One of the highlights of the film is its music by Himesh Reshammiya which became very popular upon its release. The film's title song "Jhalak Dikhlaja" became a chart-topper and was played across nightclubs and radio stations.

Emraan Hashmi, Udita Goswami and Dino Morea give decent performances. Emraan's character, Karan, is that of a struggling musician who is in love with Sheena but ultimately becomes suspicious of her. Udita, on the other hand, plays the role of Sheena with grace and poise. She is a talented fashion consultant who is trying to make a name for herself in the industry. Dino Morea plays the character of Rajveer Singh with suave and ease.

While the film is not perfect, it has its moments of thrill and intrigue. It is a classic example of a guilty pleasure movie that one can watch with a tub of popcorn and not have to think too much. The cinematography by Raju Kaygee is slick and the editing by Sanjay Sankla keeps the pace of the film fast and exciting.

The film has some flaws, notably in the screenplay, which is often predictable and leaves some loose ends untied. However, it compensates with some enjoyable moments of suspense that keep the audience engaged. The climax of the film is particularly interesting as it brings together all the characters in a final showdown.

In conclusion, Aksar may not be the best thriller to come out of Bollywood but it is definitely an entertaining watch. Although it received mixed reviews upon its release, it is worth watching for its soundtrack, performances and some of its clever twists.

Aksar is a 2006 thriller. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.0.
