Raaz movie review - in single dimension
For Emraan lovers, there's plenty of what he does the best, this time he does it with two opposite actors in one single movie. However these acts are the only isolated events where Emraan maintains his sheen. Rest of the movie, he doesn't seem to put an effort to do more than being bossed around by two strong characters. Bipasha carries on with her typically conventional approach of acting, with plenty of leg room in her dresses wherever possible. Esha, being a new comer, has a few places where she seems to have been allowed to be herself and those are the only moments where she delivers. She has put extra conscious effort on shouting and cribbing scenes. Sorry but this is sales biz lady! if it doesn't show, its not called effort!
The viewer is assured that this is a horror movie by way of iconic sadistic horror vocals in feminine voice and in dark scenes it is the morphed sound of toads. And there are some scenes where you confuse Atma (Spirits) with Aliens, particularly where the Pret Atma (unholy spirit) enters the hospital room door in the form of a thick centipede and suddenly starts piling up upon itself into a human form. Another instance where the Atma sends virus into Sanjana's body through a centipede which crawls into her ear. Din't spirits use to enter human body just like that? since when did they start using transport? Thats unconventional horror!
The sets are sprawling rich. Music is bearable and slightly hummable too. While entering the hall, take tub full of pop-corns for munching in free time and do order a mid-movie snack.
