What’s It About:

‘The Body’ is a remake of the Spanish film ‘El Cuerpo’. It has already been made three times before. Its plot revolves around the life of a businesswoman Maya Varma (Sobhita Dhulipala) whose body goes missing from the morgue. SP Jairaj Rawal (Rishi Kapoor) is handling the case of Maya’s missing body. And things get very twisty when he questions Maya’s husband Ajay Puri (Emraan Hashmi). Now, how Jairaj nails the murderer forms the rest of the plot.

What’s Hot: 

Rishi Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi have done a great job. The plot of the movie is very intriguing and it keeps you hooked. The suspense of the movie was thoroughly maintained until the end and although you know the culprit you are still in the grey area of unsurety. Sobhita Dhulipala has also done a good job.

What’s Not:

Well, the execution of the movie was very weak and the cinematography had a wide scope to improve. A major hindrance in the movie was the umpteen unpredictable songs that were totally not needed. Given the fact, this is a thriller, the background score is substandard.


It might be a good one time watch if you are willing to overlook many things in the movie.


It is quite difficult to say that the movie will do well at the box office as it is releasing alongside ‘Mardaani 2′.
