Warning: this section has some details that could distort your experience while watching the movie. I strongly recommend reading this only after you have seen the movie or if you have decided not to see it.

Plot Summary

A newly married couple returns to a small town from America, and inhabit their family mansion. The mansion has a secret, and strange events are set in motion when the bride unlocks a forbidden room.

What Worked

  • The dance sequence just before the climax is good; one gets to see a ‘classical’ dance after ages in a Bollywood film. Vineet is a great dancer and his dancing in tandem with Vidya Balan is thoroughly enjoyable. Pritam for once seems to have composed a tune set to carnatic beats (which in itself is very strange, considering that the movie is set in North India and leads one to conclude that he might have been heavily ‘inspired’), but it is delightful nonetheless

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • The entire film barring the climax! It is too loud, too gross, and the script and direction just do not create a world where the strange goings on in the haveli forge a tension which is then resolved at the end, much to the delight and relief of the viewer.
