The film is set in an queerly emptied-out mall, where various paranormal appear and disappear at will leaving behind a supernatural mayhem. Casting Jimmy Shergill Jimmy Shergill is a renowned Indian actor and prod >> Read More... and Nushrat Bharucha Who will forget the dictator and bossy girlfriend >> Read More... , this film is more about culpability and the conscience than horror in the moors. People have a terrifying encounter inside a reportedly haunted mall.

Plot:

Vishnu Sharma Vishnu Sharma is a veteran actor who has been part >> Read More... , played by Jimmy Shergill, is an ex-militant, who takes up the job of a security supervisor. Asia’s largest mall, Amity Mall, is ready to be inaugurated, although there are dissensions surrounding the death of several construction workers, and media labeling it as a ‘haunted’ mall. Mr. Manchanda, played by Arif Zakaria With roles in chunauti, Karambhoomi, mrityudand, D >> Read More... , is the owner of the mall  and his confederate, Mr. Khan's children, Ahana, played by Nushrat Bharucha and Naveed along with their friends, attend the jamboree. In succession, a supernatural targets people; in the interim Vishnu slowly extricates signs about who the ghost might be. The spirit continues its execution spree, as the six people struggle to survive through the night. Vishnu, as it turns out, was summoned by the mysterious and supernatural presence in the mall for a discrete pretext. Jimmy tries to rescue the remaining crowd in whatever way he can, and that’s when a ghost of a child reveals to Jimmy that the arcade was built over what used to be an orphanage, that was torched to ground two decades ago.

What is it that holds the key to unlocking the mystery of the haunted mall? Does he manage to survive the night at the mall? Watch the movie to find out.

Analysis:

This movie can transcend as a reprisal plot, rather than a horror flick, as most of the scenes in this movie are predictable and give away the essence of a thriller. To add to the fear factor, eerie tunes and soundtracks are played. Although the script has a lot of loopholes, it comes out pretty neat as a horror movie that would work well with the current trend of horror flicks in the Bollywood industry. Pavan Kirpalani has used every viable trick in the book to frighten the viewers; some work, some don't.

Star Performances:

Since Jimmy Shergill has already gone down the road of a serious role in ‘ A Wednesday Click to look into! >> Read More... ’, it was evident to see the ease with which he pulled the security supervisor’s role. His impeccable expressions, timing and aura kept the horror flick as scary as it should; to an extent. Nushrat Bharucha too delivers a clean performance and doesn’t go deadpan. Arif Zakaria is good with his screen presence and dialogue delivery. Though the movie fails to leave an impact on the viewers, Jimmy Shergill has managed to deliver a balanced performance.

What’s there?

1. The plot is fresh and suits the urban audience for a change, from the snake charmers and the white sari-clad women with bloodshot eyes.

2. If you look past the technical glitches and rogue acting of certain artists, the movie is quite enjoyable.  

3.  The glory of suspense lasts till the end, making the movie a little more likable.

What’s not there?

1. Imperfectly animated child ghosts impair the entire essence of horror.

2. The storyline deprives you of good content, albeit the enjoyment into the movie comes after a long and enduring wait.

3. Banal effects of soundtracks lack the magic of keeping the audience spellbound.

Verdict:

With a newfangled script to Indian horror flick, this movie certainly is unconventional and can be given a watch.
