During a tennis match, Devi (Madhuri Dixit) suddenly has the premonition of somebody being killed, someone she knows even (but she doesn't yet know who. That night the premonitions haunt her again, only this time she realizes it's her sister Rama (Sabeeha). Devi calls Rama in panic, but finds her still alive. A few hours later though she gets shot, & the killer, a man in a black raincoat, walls her body up. & since nobody has found the body, officially, she is only missing, ... but some woman has caught the whole incident on videocamera.

5 vears later, Devi meets rich businessman Kumar (Jackie Shroff), but while he immediately falls in love with her, she thinks little of him, thinking him for a con-man ... until at a banquet she learns about his wealth & charitable activities ... & thanks to his persistence, the two soon marry.

After the wedding, Devi wants to redecorate their future home, & suddenly is reminded of something of her vision, finds a crack in the wall, opens up that wall ... & stumbles over her sister's skeleton ...

It's then when Devi's premonitions set in again, she sees a bald man killing a woman unknown to her (it is the woman who filmed her sisters murder actually), a tape labelled 100 Days, a broken mirror, a Jesus statue, a dark cigarette & a magazine with a horse on its cover.

Her husband though thinks litle of these premonitions, so she turns to Sunil (Javed Jaffrey), her childhood friend who's secretly in love with her, to help her investigating ... but it seems her clues amount to very little, basically because the events Devi saw are still gong to be happening (e.g. the magazine she saw hasn't even been published yet).

Eventually though, Devi & Sunil dig up Jagmohan (Jay Kalgutkar) & Parvathi, 2 former museum employees who might be involved with her visions ... & indeed, eventually Devi witnesses Jagmohan murdering Parvathi first hand (the murder of her vision), & she gets hold of the tape Parvathi tried to guard with her life (incidently labelled 100 Days, & showing Rama's murder) ... so far for the good news, the bad news its that Jagmohan is now after her & chases her through a swimming complex until she manages t

o throw him off the trampoline - to his death one wonders ...

Devi arrives home to watch the tape, when her husband comes in, & suddenly more details of the vision come true, including the magazine, the dark cigarettes, the broken mirror - & all of a sudden the tape shows Kumar shooting Rama.

Devi is so shocked about what her husband did that she begs him to kill her, to spare her to be marriee to her sister's kilelr & her unborn child to have a killer as a father. Now every other killer would  have taken this opportunity, but not Kumar, who even prevents her from murdering herself, & tells her the whole story: He, Jagmohan & Parvathi were replacing valuable idols for reproductions & were selling the originaly to foreign countries, & that's what Kumar's wealth was based on. However, eventually Rama, an archeology student, grew wise of this & confronted Kumar (instead of going to the police). Now he tried to threaten her to keep silent, even with a gun (which is shown on the 100 Days-tape, when suddenly a shot is fired, but by Jagmohan, killing Rama ... & the tape does not conclusively show who fired that shot.

After his confession, Kumar asks Devi to call the police to have him arrested ... when Jagmohan enters the scene, after a bit of a struggle places a knife in Kumar's back, then knocks out Devi & walls her up ...

Minutes later, Sunil, who has made some conclusions of his own, enters the scene, but finds noone - until the alarm of Devi's writswatch goes off & he starts taking apart the wall again, until he is attacked by Jagmohan, & the 2 fight it out. In htew meantime, Kumar, more dead than alive, saves her wife from behind the wall, & finally the police arrives - whom Kumar himself appears to have called. They arrest Jagmohan, but they also have to take Kumar with them.


First & foremost, yes,t his film borrows heavily from Lucio Fulci's Sette Note in Nero/Seven Notes in Black/The Psychic (1977), the similarities are too close & too numerous for a coincidence, however that doesn't mean that 100 Days is a bad film (& neither was Sette Note in Nero, actually one of Fulci's best efforts), it's a tight psychothriller with loads of suspense, but also song-&-dance numbers so typical for Hindi films (which only seem out of place in one instance, when Devi's sister Rama appears to her), a romance subplot involving a marriage (sometimes it seems there has to be a marriage in every other Bollywood outing),m and a bit of a cheesy ending (which differs from Fulci's film, where the husband indeed was the killer). Now it might not be of the same quality as Sette Note in Nero, but it's good thriller-entertainment nevertheless, even if Bollywood films are not your thing.
