A total rip-off of Hitchcock's Rebecca (1940)
1 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

But having said that - the cast here does a wonderful job of remaking the atmosphere that makes "Rebecca" an awesome movie. Waheeda Rehman is convincing as a newly-wed bride driven paranoid by the housekeeper (Lalita Pawar) and the mysterious specter of her husband's first wife...a thriller faithfully remade for the Hindi-speaking audience.

The overall cinematography is quite good. Most of the songs serve no purpose except for "Jhoom Jhoom..." which sounds quite appropriate as the recurring theme for the mysterious events occurring in the film. Lalita Pawar does an excellent job as the menacing housekeeper (Dai Maa) and is genuinely scary.

Biswajeet is the only weak point of the movie - but his role is existent for cosmetic purposes only - so much cannot be expected from him.

Overall, a good movie - but do not watch it at night!
