Phhir - External Reviews

wogma rating: Switch channels if it's on cable (?)
quick review:

Phhir is one of those films where I want my main review to be the quick review. It's taxing when everything you have to say about a film is bad. It's not scary, it's not thrilling. It beats its own purpose and is just bad. I'd like to just say, "switch channels if it's on cable!" and get away with it. But, oh well...

Thumbs down by Sudhish Kamath, The Hindu ...With its seemingly improvised make-it-up-as-you-go narrative, the film goes back and forth in time to tell us something it forgot. And sometimes it is because it has changed its mind about how a scene ought to play out. ... full review
