1921” is a horror film scripted, directed and produced by Vikram Bhatt. The screenplay is by Tanya Pathak and Esha Desai. The songs are composed by Harish Sagane, Asad Khan, Pranit Mawale and the background score is by Sangeet Haldipur and Siddharth Haldipur.

Ayush from India shifts his base to London to learn music. He finds out that The Wadia mansion, where he resides is haunted. He is informed about a woman exorcist named Rose. Rose says that she knows about the ghosts and speaks with them right from her childhood. While doing her job to get rid of the ghosts from the mansion, she falls in love with Ayush. Did Ayush love her? What happens next? How will Ayush return to India? Watch the film in theaters.

Star Performance

Zarine Khan has played well and in fact, we could say that this is her best performance, so far. Karan Kundra has to improve his acting skills, a lot. His expressions irritate the viewers at times. However, he managed to work better in the second half of the film.


Vikram Bhatt created a huge expectation on this film, but he failed to fulfill it. The BGM is good than the songs. Some scenes lose the connection with the previous scenes. We couldn’t say that it is an editing error but the script error. Lengthy flashback stories are the biggest negatives in the film.

What’s There?

  • The director has made a scary setup with the dim lights
  • Karan Kundra and Zarine Khan’s chemistry
  • First half is quite okayish
  • Production values are good

What’s Not There?

  • No horror experience
  • Too many songs irks the viewers
  • Lengthy story makes the audiences feel bored


Although the eerie atmosphere is created, the ghosts didn’t frighten us. If you expect that the film will be a good one like Vikram’s 1920, then you will undoubtedly be disappointed. However, the film is just a one-time watch!
