Movie Info

In this thriller from India, Shankar (Shah Rukh Khan) is a mute servant of Rajasaab (Amrish Puri). Shankar is a loyal follower, however, he falls in love with his master's wife, Gauri (Madhuri Dixit). When Shankar and Gauri run off, Shankar is thrown from a cliff and left for dead, and Gauri is sold to a bordello. Shankar is found by a native and is slowly nursed back to health. Having also regained his ability to speak, Shankar returns to Rajasaab to rescue Gauri and get revenge. Koyla is based on the 1990 Tony Scott film Revenge, which itself is an adaptation of a novella by Jim Harrison. ~ Jonathan E. Laxamana, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Koyla

Fairly decent. Raja Saheb is a horrible, and conniving, older man who takes pleasure in the misery of others. Proud of the power he wields, he falls for the beautiful, young Gauri and intends to make her his bride. He produces a plan, and presents a picture of Shankar (a young, handsome man who has grown up in the charge of Raja) to Gauri's aunt and uncle, along with a wedding proposal. Initially, Gauri is reluctant but glances at Shankar's picture. Believing that she will marry the young man in the picture, she accepts the proposal. Finding out later, she is deceived and forced into an unwanted marriage with Raja. Gauri and Shankar understand the loneliness and pain in living with Raja and his brother, Brijwa. Hoping to return Gauri to her brother, Shankar protects her while she stays in Raja's home. In the process, Shankar discovers some hidden truth along the way. Shahrukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit, Amrish Puri, and Johny Lever stars. Worthy!
