Darr(Fear)is all about Obsession. It is all about Rahul's (Shahrukh Khan) obsession for a young woman, Kiran (Juhi Chawla)that he first met at college but was to shy to approach. Kiran is serenaded by Rahul, who she never actually sees, and thinks it is her boyfriend Sunil(Sunny Deol). However when confronted by Sunil, she discovers her mistake and is confused over her feelings. Returning home one night she is confronted by a stranger who shines a torch in her face and utters the words " I love you, K-K-K-Kiran". She doesn't see his face, but later that evening she receives a telephone call repeating the same words. We find out that Rahul's obsession has turned him in to a crazed stalker who has imaginary conversations with his mother who has been dead for twenty years. In true 'Hitchcock' style, the movie draws us in with it's suspense. The echoing telephone in an empty room, the threatening phone-calls at dead of night saying that he will kill Kiran's lover.
After police investigations and red-herrings on the behalf of Rahul, Sunil and Kiran decide to marry and go on honeymoon where they receive the news that the stalker has hanged himself. But this isn't the end of their problems, as a crazed/obsessed but very cool Rahul follows them and attempts to kill Sunil in order to get Kiran to wed him.
This is the second film with Shahrukh in a 'Negative Role', but he plays it to perfection!
If it was just anybody acting the part, or if the stalker was unatractive or disfigured in some way, we would all be shouting for his demise. However, SRK plays the part so wonderfully, that you warm to his character and feel sorry for him. Not surprising that SRK got an award for 'Best Villian'
Watch this film if you love suspense 'Alfred Hitchcock' style.
Watch this film for BRILLIANT acting
