Sometimes the best way to tell a story is not to tell it and since ‘Hamraaz’ is the story of a secret which could not be revealed we have no right to spill the secret.

‘Hamraaz’ means sharer of secrets—the confidant. During the course of life we have to share secrets with people and sometimes we have to keep secrets—all in good faith, all with a view not to spoil the happiness of home and hearts.

But they say even sealed lips betray secrets.

Because secrets have a tendency to betray their owners. In that case it results in suspicion and suspicion in the case of ‘Hamraaz’ could be dangerous. Basically the story of faith and suspicion the burden of ‘Hamraaz’ is this that between husband and wife there can be no walls, that the greatest of loves have been known to flounder on a whiff of suspicion, and that for the happiness of married life and for keeping the four walls together, there has to be a complete understanding and harmony between husband and wife—they have to be ‘Hamraaz’ of each other. And when they are not well, you see it for yourself.
