1920 Evil Returns

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.

Thumbs down by Devesh Sharma, Filmfare ...We would have forgotten and forgiven the lax pace, the hotchpotch screenplay and shoddy editing if Tia Bajpai was scary and/or sexy. That she is neither is the main flaw of the film... full review

So-So by Ravi Kandala, fullhyd.com ...If the movie manages to scare you even one bit, it is definitely due to Tia Bajpai. The girl can't act to save her life in the mushy/romantic scenes, but watch out for her when she acts possessed. ... full review

Thumbs down by Martin D'Souza, Glamsham.com ...My only suggestion to Vikram Bhatt is that if he is spending so much money on the production of a film, he should also consider getting a damn good scary story. ... full review

Thumbs down by Divya Solgama, Gomolo.in ...Tia Bajpai looks simple and starts well but once she gets possessed her performance looked fake and forced. She tries very hard to make an impact, but ends up being hilarious... full review

silvan:

Seems like Bhatt productions are stuck with doing horror films after the success of Haunted, Raaz 3....
nothing really great about them.... About 1920 I havent seen it yet... hope not like Bhoot Returns

meetu:

@silvan I hope so too.

TimELiebe:

As I said in your review of 1920, Meetu, the religious angle didn't bother me or any of my pardesi friends at all. In fact, it added some richness to the story, and was ultimately a hopeful view of religion and faith - and the power of love to conquer even supernatural evil.

It's Halloween in the United States, so we're going to watch RAAZ next Sunday. This past Sunday there were only a few of us thanks to both a sore throat going around and people trying to get home in the face of what our news media is calling "Frankenstorm"(!). So instead of a horror movie, we watched TOH BAAT PAKKI! - which was too dull to be horrifying, or much of anything really....

meetu:

@TimELiebe I had a strong feeling you'd be leaving a comment on this one :) Like I said, I personally have a difficult time watching any kind of blind faith in action. Again, hope all is well at your end.

guddu :

Meetu there seems to be a pre conceived notion among the makers that sucn cheap scary discarded films might result in good revenue. Anyways they are going to enjoy profit and audience feedback and critics verdict aren't their concern.

meetu:

@guddu well, we do our bit :D

TimELiebe:

@guddu - oh, there are always plenty of suckers around who will give a horror movie a chance, no matter how stupid it probably is!

Like, uh ::raises hand sheepishly:: me....
