36 China Town (2006)
(Released: May 5, 2006)
China Town, with all its tinsel and glamor, is located in Goa, India, a major tourist attraction because of it's scenic beauty and casinos. Chief Inspector Karan (Akshaye Khanna) of Goa Police is told that an anonymous phone call has been received informing that the owner of 36 China Town as well as the owner of Hollywood Casino, Sonia Chang (Isha Koppikar), has been murdered. When the Police rush to the site, they do not find any dead body, but instead several hand and foot prints, including those of aspiring Bollywood actor, Raj Malhotra (Shahid Kapoor); a runaway daughter, Priya (Kareena Kapoor); an addictive gambler and hotel owner, Natwar (Paresh Rawal), and his wife, Gracy (Payal Rohatgi); a visitor from Bombay, K.K. (Johnny Lever), and his wife Ruby (Tanaaz Currim); a local playboy and hunk, Rocky (Upen Patel). In addition to these, the Police also have to question Lobo, the butler, and his wife, who claim they were away at the time of the crime; and last but not the least Mr.Dixit (Vivek Vaswani), Mrs. Chang's lawyer. What Karan finds is that all of these suspects are lying about their whereabouts at the time of the victim's death, and all have sufficient motive to kill Sonia, and it will be up to him to discern the truth from the lies, and not only figure out the real killer but also find sufficient evidence linking him to this crime.
