Movie Review: Phhir

Starring: Rajneesh Duggal, Adah Sharma, Roshni Chopra

Directed by Girish Dhamija

The best performance in this pretty but listless supernatural thriller comes from the film’s producer Vikram Bhatt who plays a sinister extortionist’s voice on the telephone. We never see the character. But it remains the single-most expressive performance in a film suffused with deadpan performers who seem to have traveled all the way to the idyllic British countryside for a vacation.

But then they decided to make a quick thriller to supplement their holiday expenses.

The film exudes a kind of stock-slickness…The rugged castles and the verdant outdoors are well shot. The plot ? Ah…now that is another story…Rajneesh Duggal (know him?) has two lives to portray.He does the needful with the expertise of a trapeze artiste with a sprained ankle. The trip, as they say, is pre-destined.
