Phoonk 2

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?) - Only for filmy-freaks who enjoy horror
quick review:

Not that it was very difficult to make anything better than the first in this series, yet, this one came as a pleasant shock. Because I actually jittered and for once, could identify with the nervous laughter and shrieks from the audience. Yet, loose writing doesn't make it a satisfying horror.

Thumbs down by Mihir Fadnavis, india.com ...RGV employs a simple philosophy behind a movie like this - add more squishing, add more screaming, and it'll be better, or at least it'll make more money... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...Phoonk 2’ works as a creep-out, gross-out horror flick, especially in the second half, when the gloves come off, and the `bhoot’ races about a deserted bungalow, impaling and dismembering. ... full review

Thumbs down by Shilpa Jamkhandikar, Reuters ...Milind Gadagkar’s sequel to “Phoonk”, imaginatively titled “Phoonk 2″, is however less about the thrills and chills and more about unnecessarily loud background music, badly made- up ghosts and an inane storyline that has no beginning and no end.... full review

Hindi Radio:

Ok finally can you compare it with the part 1? as I saw part 1 and believe me it was so much funny to me than scary. In part one the main hero of the movie was a craw! hehe!

meetu:

@Hindi Radio It is better than Phoonk. Phoonk was comedy, this is at least scary. The crow makes a one-shot guest appearance :)

Web Hosting India:

I saw both parts, the second part is scarier then Phonk 1. surely its a good entertainer!
