What was Ramu thinking when he put up like 'If BHOOT scared you, VAASTU SHASTRA will kill you', did he mean the laughter will kill you coz the movie is more comedy than scary. Bhoot was a much better film. The film does have a few chilling scenes but it doesn't give so much impact as scary flicks are supposed to give. and moreover the music is absolutely horrible and leaves your eardrums shattered. Virag (Chakravarthy) and Jhilmil(Sushmita Sen) live at Pune, are happily married and have a very sweet kid, Rohan (Ahsaas Chana). Jhilmil is a doctor in a reputed hospital in Pune. Virag is a writer by profession. To complete his new assignment he requires peace, hence they decide to shift to Shanti Kutir on the outskirts of Pune. However they have something else in store for them. Jhilmil and Virag's four-year-old son is bored and decides to explore the house. With no one to keep an eye on him, Rohan ventures into different areas of the bungalow only to notice things - strange occurrences that no one believes. His parents think he is lying until the unthinkable happens. And suddenly Rohan's stories seem very real. The police think it is the act of a psychopath, but Virag believes otherwise. He turns to his son for the truth, but is it too late? The problem with the film is that certain situations which are executed in a good manner are spoilt by overdoing it. For example the scene of Purab and Peeya's making love, Purab's subsequent disappearance and Peeya searching him in the mansion, are so long drawn that the audience loose interest and become impatient. Even the climax - so vital in a film of this genre - is completely ridiculous. Sourabh Usha Narang shows a grasp over technique, with the lighting and camera movements contributing enormously in making the situations look eerie. But it could have been better if the writer had put a little more effort in making the story convincing and eerie. Cinematography [Sachin K. Krishn] suits the requirements. Sushmita Sen is competent and doe a good job. Chekravarthy should loosen up a bit. Master Ahsaas Channa is the real star. The child is supremely talented and his expressions at most places contribute to the eerie atmosphere. Rest of the acst lend able support. On the whole, you can watch the film once but dont go with too much expectations.
