Khamoshiyan (2015)

Cast – Ali Faizal, Sapna Pabbi, Gurmeet Choudhary

Director – Karan Darra

Writer – Vikram Bhatt

I had opted for it considering it a suspense thriller with a touch of paranormal and a pinch of horror. Seemed like an interesting concoction from the look of it, which it was… in the first half.

It’s a typical Vikram Bhatt kind of story and Vishesh Films kind of cinema . Expectation was a psychological thriller like Murder 3 (Randeep Hooda, Aditi Hydari starrer )

But the second half loses its grip, gets a little meandering, fails to bind us like the first half and tilts too much towards horror-less horror. I mean all that tantra mantra, shaitan and atma stuff. Less the climax which was too cliche , the story and the movie could have been pretty interesting.

Performances, nothing great to write home about… not too bad.
