quick review:

Gore hidden behind special effects. So, no horror. And no comedy either. Tch, what a waste!

Shiney Ahuja, the name, comes with a snicker and more. And just when I thought that the last joke on his personal laugh was dead, and thus his career, I saw a trailer of a film called Ghost and...well, I snickered.

Interestingly, the giggle turned into the kind reserved for the on-the-face horror films. I admit, the gore in the trailer is pretty gross and it does unnerve you. But, somehow, the treatment to the subject seems to be as run-of-the-mill for the genre as can be.

And yet, I know I get spooked very easily, so there is a good chance that Ghost will give me that creepy, under-the-skin crawl that any decent horror film ought to. That besides though, there isn't much to look forward to. The songs sound like any other genre from the Vikram Bhatt camp. And these views are echoed in the few music reviews for Ghost.

It really doesn't feel like a movie that I'll enjoy watching, but might just end up being one which does what it sets out to do - chill the spine.

Music Reviews:
Milliblog - "Functional music for the ghost"
Music Aloud - "6.25/10"
Happy Sing - "Somehow Sharib-Toshi are still able to maintain interest in their songs even with their repetitive style."
