Film-Review : SINS (2005) - Erotic Tale of Passion about Forbidden Love with a Priest

SINS (2005) Bollywood Movie PosterDirector Vinod Pande is known to boldly address controversy in his movies, and Sins (2005, English) is no exception. Sins is a tale of forbidden passion that gets hotter and hotter till it engulfs the lives of a Catholic Priest Father Williams (played by Shiny Ahuja) and a sensuous subordinate Rosemary (played by Seema Rahmani). Matters go out of hand when the increasingly frantic sexual relationship eventually gets the best of the Priest and consumes him, threatening to engulf the woman's life. Graham (played by Nitesh Pande) is the good guy in the film - he has a large heart indeed, being married to Rosemary, and the husband-wife pair need to figure out an way out of the all-consuming passion of the priest.

In spite of the steamy sex scenes increasing in intensity in SINS (BUY DVD), the viewer gets the impression that the carnal relationships portrayed on the silver screen somehow meshes nicely into the storyline, and contributes in a big way to the film actually becoming an emotional thriller and not just a meaty sleaze-fest.

Given that the roles depicting desire are difficult to play, especially for relative newcomers in the star cast, Shiny Ahuja and  Seema Rahmani deliver commendable performances. Shiny Ahuja's alternating fits of lust and fury are carefully done, and Seema Rahmani portrays the entire gamut of emotions from sexual arousal through terror remarkably well.

A thoroughly disturbing movie, SINS will go around in the viewers mind for quite a while after watching it, it touches some of the carnal circuits in the Human brain that almost causes it to get stuck in the subconscious.
