A supermodel in an on again/off again relationship. A distressed painter in search of his masterpiece. Questioning the validity of the occult. Add excellent actors who have done a marvelous job in portraying their roles, a director who has with great success managed to capture the moods of this magnificent story, and there you have managed to sum up this movie.
I found this movie to be worth every single penny spent on it. The story was not your typical Bollywood horror story where you're being haunted for no apparent reason. In fact this movie broke a lot of those common stereotypes like every story being a love story in the end, or the fact that the surprise character is disco-veteran Mithun.
Emraan Hashmi, who has acquired a leaner look before this movie has once again delivered a flawless performance. He is portraying the character of Prithvi, an artist who has a troubled relationship with his father and is striving to find his masterpiece. One day he finally gets this image of woman who he has never met, and suddenly finds out she is supermodel Nandita Chopra. Prithvi does every now and then get these images in his mind that he paint involving Nandita, and finds out that his prophecies indeed are coming true. Upon further research Prithvi finds out there is a link to these prophecies concerning Nandita actually have a link to some mysterious suicides.
Kangana Ranaut plays the character of Nandita Chopra, a supermodel who is just getting back together with the love of her life Yash. She is finally settling in with her new life when all of the sudden she experiences odd things happening with her. She neglects it all in order for her boyfriend's career until she one day decides to go with Prithvi to the town of Kalindi to save her life.
Adhyayan Suman is Yash, an anchor of a TV show which works to get rid of all superstition among the public. Yash has just found back together with his girlfriend when all of the sudden people are accusing her to be involved with the occult. Yash gives Nandita an option, either stay back with him and get help or go with Prithvi.
The story was very original, and actually held a bigger morale than just any ordinary horror movie. The movie is NOT a copy of whatever, even though it has borrowed the element of the well from the Ring. Other than that it's just your ordinary horror effects, not unlike any other movie you will see in this category. The use of music to capture the mood was absolute genius. I am glad to finally announce that we are catching up to Hollywood when it gets to the horror genre.
I have to give it to the team for doing such a great job, though Kangana would not have been my ideal choice for someone I would want to hear scream, but she makes up for it through her facial expressions that never fail. Adhyayan did an amazing job as a newcomer, though I think he needs to be working a little with his choreography. Emraan Hashmi is always proving that there is room for improvement, and this time he has outdone himself in such a serious role.
Overall, a good movie, good acting, eerie mood, perfect. There are scenes that definitely got me jumping.
