7. Ek Thi Daayan-Bright flashes peeking through the Cobweb! Movie Review


Image This Ekta Kapoor film is about supernatural happenings and is quite different from the normal run of the mill movie, but at the same time it is not a horror movie.

The combination has perhaps helped in making this a film with sufficient meat in it, unlike cheaply made B-grade horror films. Plot: The central character enacted by Emran Hashmi is named Bobo, and he also happens to be a famous magician who suffers from hallucinations about a long-dead younger sister Misha played by the lesser known Sara Arjun. These series o...
