Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne meaning ’you have stolen my heart’ has been inspired by the Hollywood flick, Charade which starred Gary Grant and Audrey Hepburn.

Unlike its Hollywood conterpart, this Indian version gives us just that plus a bit more ‘masala’ to entice today’s cinemagoers.

Vijay (Zayed Khan) encounters Tina (Esha Deol) in Goa, where a romance develops between the two.

One morning, Tina is summoned to Bangkok, Thailand. Vijay accompanies her for moral support.

On reaching her destination, she learns that her guardian (uncle) has been killed in an accident.

When interrogated by the Thai police, Tina is shocked to find her late uncle to be involved in a million dollar heist.

And now, the rest of his gang are on Tina’s trail in search of the loot.

These include Om (Gulshan Grover), Sheena (Rakhi Sawant) and Chingaar (Vijay Raaz) who waste no time in confronting Tina.

Not knowing what to do, Tina seeks Vijay’s help. But to her horror, she discovers that Vijay is not what he seems to portray.

After a heated confrontation , Vijay confesses that his real name is Prakash Yogi. And that he is the brother of a fourth accomplice of her uncle.

Caught in a web of deceit, a frightened Tina is constantly followed by all three accomplices who believe she holds the key to the fortune.

But in actual fact she knows nothing about the heist.

The mystery deepens when she discovers the dead bodies of two of the three accomplices, Chingaar and Sheena, show up dead.

Who committed the murder? Can she be the next victim? Find out more in Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne.

The highlight of the movie is its fast paced storyline which keeps you guessing on what’s going to happen next.

But it’s the climax scenes which catches you totally unawares. It certainly gets your pulse rate racing as the film nose dives into an electrifying conclusion.

The film shows that director Sangeeth Sivan has put a lot of thought and effort in his film execution.

A good example of this includes the villains who begin to doubt each other. Well shot to prove the point!

From Himmesh Reshammiya’s musical score, the mohabbat hai mirchi song, don't you love me baby and the title track are the best numbers.

The songs blended well with the main story which aided the fast paced narration.

Must say, Bollywood is certainly reaching new heights on the technical front these days – watch out Hollywood!

This can be seen in the cinematography by T Ramji. He has captured the cinematic visuals of Bangkok and Pattaya (Thailand) beautifully.

Even ‘the matrix’ style stunts deserve a mention. The use of various camera angles and fast and slow motion fights add further impact to the film especially in the last reel.

Newcomer Zayeb Khan does impress by delivering a surprising performance whether it’s to do with his expressions, his dancing skills or fight sequences.

He simply breezes through them effortlessly. Another star in the making?? My prediction is yes!

Esha Deol is her usual self and does manage to give that little bit more especially in the emotional scenes.

On the whole, the film does have the necessary thrills which go hand in hand with the story.

Coupled with Zayeb’s debut performance and good music, it will certainly ‘steal your heart’.
