Ashdoc's movie review---Question mark

Post by ashdoc on Sat Feb 18, 2012 3:41 pm

Welcome to the expectation of a long boring sunday morning on which you have nothing to do except sleep.....

.......But how to go to sleep on sunday mornings ?? Simple..... Remain sleepless on saturday nights !!

But how to spend a long saturday night sleepless when the drinking companions have abandoned you for a weekend.....??

Simple.....spend the night jittery with fear after seeing a good horror movie preferably at night show to increase the fear....

Thats what I did....

So I am here writing this review hoping to quake in my boots as the night gets deeper and deeper and it gets more chilly and eerie.....

So whats the movie ??

Its nothing but our desi version of Paranormal activity suitably adapted for Indian audiences......

These films are cheap to make because of new actors who take hardly any money as pay , have no costly foreign locations and do not even have any costly sets---and thus deliver more bang for the buck , earning quick profits with least investment on whatever meagre run they have at the box office .

But while the original '' Paranormal activity '' relied upon subtle sound effects and an eerie quiet in between to create the tension , this film is for the primitive and presumably illiterate Indian audience.....

And keeping this audience in mind , the film is loud , garish and relies on creating a lot of noise in its attempt to create fear in the mind of dimwit desi......

And yeah , typically for the desi audience whose intelligence quotient is supposed to be low , there is the ubiquitous '' possessed woman '' spinning her head round and round and making shrieking noises all the while .

In fact , like a typical desi spirit , the spirit attacks women more of the time , and some of the actions they make while being '' possessed '' make you think that as usual the desi ghost is some lusty rapist who is raping them......but you soon realise it isn't raping them but only is in their bodies......no , not the way you think ( naughty , like a typical desi pirat ) but only controlling their bodily actions .

And yeah , there are some guys too , in fact more in number than girls , and all of them have come to a remote bunglow in some remote hilly region to film a low budget film.....

The mornings are full of mist in these mountains , but its the darkness thats more scary.....

For the spirit comes to full action in the evenings.....

Just like Paranormal activity , the film is filmed by video camera , which has a night mode to keep on at night......

And none of the people who have gone to the mountains are going to make it alive.....

The film really comes alive after the interval , and one by one all the young people are affected by the spirit which resides in the house.....

......And their attempt to escape from there comes a cropper as they mysteriously lose the keys of their jeep which is their only way to get out of this place which is remote and has no contact with civilization and no other means of transport.....

......And so they know there is no escape from here or from death.....they only have to wait.....

......while we wait for the movie to end.....the end of our audiovisual torture.....

Verdict---not good .
