1920 Evil Returns - Preview

quick review:

Mystery of a possessed goody-good girl builds up to a lame backstory. This is only the excuse to show some disgusting kind of gory horror.

Another month, another horror flick from the Bhatt camp. And this one doesn't make me look forward to it. Fortunately, this time around it is for the right reasons. It is not because I will end up laughing more than getting horrified but actually there is a good chance that I will get that genuine crawl under my skin which I so hate. It looks like an overall good job of atmosphere, acting, make-up and directing.

There was this other thing that bothered me in 1920, its take on religion. This angle seems to be missing from this film, at least from what is seen in this one trailer. But, I guess it would be foolish to expect any resolution of a ghost without a hand of religion. I just hope it is a more balanced take.

Besides that, Aftab Shivdasani shows up after a longish time, but looks like he will only be playing second fiddle to the ghost played by Tia Bajpai. With this cast, we do know that there will be barely any similarity with its predecessor and the 1920 in the name is either for using the following that might have been gained by the first film or complete lack of creativity.

Since, everything that comes out of the Bhatt camp, especially in this genre is pretty much the same, I am not expecting any dynamism in the story. Even the music seems to be once again typical of what one gets from the Bhatts. The visuals though look like they will engage (even if not in a way I enjoy the most).
