The story starts with Shubhada ( Sai Tamhankar) getting hit by Dr Ajinkya Vartak's ( Ajinkya Deo) car. After regaining consciousness and following some questioning by the police, Shubhada tells them that she is Shashi Deodhar's ( Tushar Dalvi) wife and gives her residential address. But upon reaching there she finds out that no one from her family stays there. Finding no place to go to, a hesitant Ajinkya takes her to his house for the day. Meanwhile the police get a visitor who tells them that Shubhada is his wife and her name is Nilima. Sensing some problem in the way things are shaping up, Dr Vartak, who is a professional psychiatrist, takes it upon him to help Shubhada / Nilima to get out of this situation. Does he succeed? Is she Nilima or Shubhada, and is her problem a ploy to fool everyone or a genuine one? And who is Shashi Deodhar?

These questions are essential to grab the attention of the viewer and director Amol Shetge succeeds in getting the audience to wonder what could possibly be the reason behind all that is happening. The story proceeds smoothly with introduction of new characters from time to time and you feel the pressure of the unanswered questions building up. And just when you think that you have predicted the answers, you are hit with another dark twist in the plot.

Sai's confused and troubled state of mind is reflected in her emotions while Ajinkya's role as the inquisitive and concerned psychiatrist, is authentic and believable. The treatment given to the film seems patchy at a few places but the story bridges all the gaps.

Thrilling, well-crafted and disturbing at the same time, is 'Sau Shashi Deodhar' for you. It is perhaps the only film after 'Pune 52' in this genre that succeeds in playing mind games with the viewers and is a good watch for psychological thriller buffs.
