Saw III (2006)

The reason I liked the first two movies was that humans were treated like lab rats by this inventive yet murderous madman who devised interesting ways to kill his victims. Yet, there was always that little chance of survival, and we rooted for the victims wondering if they will, or wil not? They can, or cannot?

My Wife's Murder (2005)

Every year, Ram Gopal Verma's Factory churns out so many movies of varied quality that the average quality level of these movies ends up being, well, quite average. It does give a lot of aspiring filmmakers a chance to put their skills in use, but the downside is that gems like Ek Hasina Thi get lost in the dust of movies like James. My Wife's Murder is one such gem, and maybe the best of the non-RGV directed Factory movies.
