Akshay Akkineni (son of editor and multiple National Film Award winner A
Sreekar Prasad). This is supposed to be the remake of Tamil superhit film by
the same name. Efforts have been taken to make this a great piece of
supernatural thriller, premise has been set, but somewhere, towards the end,
one feels disillusioned (and probably cheated) since a horror movie moves from
its basic theme. I experienced almost the same feeling as an audience when I
saw Aamir Khan’s Talaash, I felt, that the end was least expected by revealing
Kareena’s character as that of a ghost. Here, though I don’t want to spill the

who is terrorized.
begin when one day on his Boss’ demand, Kunal goes to deliver a chocolate pack
to his Boss’ wife. He noticed something abnormal in her. Boss did admit to
Kunal that his wife is probably possessed. After this incident, one day, when
Kunal goes to deliver Pizza to a lady (Dippanita Sharma) in a big mansion, he
gets locked up. Then follows a series of supernatural things happening over
there, right from Dippanita getting murdered followed by husband Arunodaya
Singh’s entry and also getting murdered, worms on remaining pizza, a child
addressing Kunal as Papa.
fear factor is concerned, much of the fear factor was not there, but
definitely, it raised a curiosity to know further, although am completely
disappointed with the way things towards the end is being handled. Can we put
this movie actually under horror genre? Horror elements are clubbed with a few
other themes (let me not reveal the same). 3D impact has come out well in
certain areas. Akshay is convincing in his role.
not go down with you, still you can taste it. An average film.
