Kasoor is a 2001 Indian romantic thriller film directed by Vikram Bhatt. The movie stars Divya Dutta, Lisa Ray, and Apurva Agnihotri in the lead roles. The film revolves around a murder investigation where the prime suspect is a woman named Sheena (Lisa Ray). The story is a combination of love, betrayal, and suspense that keeps the audience engaged from start to end.

The movie begins in a courtroom where Sheena is being tried for the murder of her husband. The victim is a wealthy businessman named Kunal (Apurva Agnihotri). Sheena pleads not guilty and claims to have no memory of the events leading up to the crime. The prosecutor presents a compelling case against her, but her defense lawyer, Simran (Divya Dutta), believes in her innocence and fights to prove it.

The story then takes the audience back a year before the murder to show the events that led to the crime. Sheena is a struggling artist who meets Kunal at an exhibition. They fall in love, and Kunal helps Sheena financially to make a name for herself in the art world. However, their happiness is short-lived when Kunal's father disapproves of Sheena and tries to break them apart.

Amidst all this turmoil, Sheena's neighbor and friend, Dr. Roy (played by Irrfan Khan), begins to develop feelings for her. Sheena, unaware of his affection for her, continues to remain friends with him. As the story unfolds, Dr. Roy becomes a critical character in the investigation and brings a new twist to the tale.

The film's narrative is gripping because it keeps the audience guessing till the very end. The story switches between past and present, revealing small pieces of information every time, making the audience wonder who the real culprit is. The music by Nadeem-Shravan is excellent, with many songs becoming chartbusters, especially the romantic ballad 'Kitni Bechain Hoke.'

The cast performances are outstanding, with Lisa Ray stealing the show with her portrayal of Sheena. Her innocent looks and child-like behavior make the audience root for her, even though she might have committed the crime. Divya Dutta is excellent as an idealistic lawyer who believes in her client's innocence. Apurva Agnihotri plays the charming lover with finesse and manages to make a memorable impact in his scenes.

Kasoor was Director Vikram Bhatt's second consecutive hit after his debut film, 'Ghulam.' He succeeds in creating a compelling story with strong characters and intriguing plot twists. The movie ends with a surprising revelation that surprises the audience and highlights the ambiguity of human emotions.

Apart from the movie's suspense element, the film also comments on the dual standards of society. It highlights how women are expected to be 'good girls' and are judged for their choices, while men get away with excesses.

In conclusion, Kasoor is an entertaining film that keeps the audience hooked till the end. Its gripping narrative and brilliant performances are what make it stand out even after two decades. If you are a fan of suspense dramas, Kasoor is not to be missed!
