wogma rating: Switch channels if it's on cable (?)
quick review:

The very foundation of this murder mystery is ridiculous! Top it off with an expressionless Celina Jaitley and a just about average performance by Aftab Shivdasani. Even if it is a short film, your time will be better spent sleeping.
