| A great Indian horror film that has depth and twist
I signed up specifically to write this review because some of the other reviews for this title are so misleading.

My sister and I watch one horror film pretty much every week. Our bar is pretty high when it comes to selecting movies to watch. I'm a fairly busy person and every movie is like an investment of time, so I give a lot of thoughts and search around for average ratings before I decide on a movie.

On the night we watched this film, I was working and wanted to watch something on the side. Netflix recommended this movie with over 90% match, so I thought I'd give it a go. I didn't have any expectation going into the movie as Bollywood doesn't do a great job at most horror films.

But I was wrong. As it turned out, I couldn't step away from watching the movie.

From the get go, the movie feels boring. It starts with a song, and unneeded romantic scenes act like huge blockers in the first half of the film. However, give it a go and eventually the story starts to emerge.

The film is well-written, well thought out and the actors do a great job portraying the film. There were even twists when I least expected it. It's not the most original idea that you will ever see, so you will find similarities with a lot of other Hollywood flicks. If you're after something never seen before, this is not your movie.

But if you enjoy a great horror movie with a good number of jumpscares and a great story with depth, I highly recommend it. It has its fair share of faults, but by the end of its runtime, I did not feel like I wasted any time. It was worth every moment (except the unneeded song and kissing scenes at the beginning). It fails to build up interest from the start, but if you stick around, you will be rewarded.

I know that not everyone's taste is similar, but to say this movie is trash or ROFL because it's so bad is just not right. Probably those reviewers went in hoping to watch the next most original story that doesn't take cues from anything that has ever been told before. Because, as I said, there are familiar scenes throughout the film. But it has a story, genuine acting, great direction of photography, and unexpected twists that are genuinely satisfying.
