Scare Fare with finesse and glamor!
While vacationing in Greece, four young and carefree girls are rattled by a series of supernatural incidents that get increasingly dangerous step by step. Their young tour guide Vedant (Kunaal Roy Kapur) and a mysterious stranger named Aveer (Rajneesh Duggal) come to their rescue and help them to escape from the super natural danger they`re in and a few dark secrets emerge.
The film starts on a note of promise on exotic virginal locations of Athens in Greece not yet seen in Hindi films with a bunch of four young girls gallivanting, each with her own back story. You heave a sigh of relief because it is a different scare fare which is set in lovely locales and not in dilapidated bungalows or eerie havelis. Of course you are also subjected to a lot of mumbo jumbo in the climax but mercifully the film sets out to entertain you and in the process you witness romantic songs picturized on Kunaal Roy Kapur
Though Aveer refuses to go to Athens to save Nibhana at her father’s behest at first, he lands up in Athens because Nibhana is the same girl he was in love with before he becomes a powerful pandit. As soon as he arrives in the villa to start investigating about the ghost and deduces that one of Nibhana’s friends is possessed. How Aveer uses his powers to solve the mystery behind the possession and how he saves the day is what the rest of the film is all about.
While Kunal Roy Kapur lends sizable charm aided by with his role, Nazia Hussian mesmerizes you with her beauty though you cannot tell the same about her performance. Though he is seen less in the film, when compared to Kunal Roy Kapur, Rajneesh Duggal gets a lot of opportunity to display not only his biceps and abs but also a fair amount of histrionics. Pooja Bisht as NIbhana scores with her role, while Shafaq Naaz and Archana Shastri look scared most of the time in the film
Rajiv S Ruia who has earlier helmed kids’ films like the My Friend Ganesha series, succeeds in proving that as a director, he is versatile and can outwit Vikram Bhatt in the horror genre a la the Ramsays, in spite of not resorting to vulgarity or gory violence with bloodshed usually associated with horror films.
The film offers you a refined and fairly decent scare fare and that too with a lot of finesse without resorting to vulgarity, bloodshed and gory violence
