After the passing away of her parents, Simran Malhotra lives a wealthy lifestyle with her uncle, Rajendra. She has always won beauty pageants during her college days, and when an opportunity arises, she enters her name in a local beauty contest. This news is not welcomed by fellow-collegian, Tanya Khurana, who has always been the runner-up. She confides to her brother, Ajit, who assures her that Simran will be made to change her mind.

Awfully bad!
1 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dhund-The Fog is a really bad take off on the Hollywood horror flick I Know What You Did Last Summer. Nothing about the film works in its favor. The weak screenplay coupled with some lousy acting from the lead actors are to blame.

The story revolves around a group of friends: Sameer (newcomer Amar Upadhyay), Simran (Aditi Govitrikar), Kunal (Apoorva Agnihotri) and Kajal (Divya Palat). Simran always wins at a beauty contest and this lands her in a soup as a contestant Tanya's (Shweta Menon) brother, Ajit (Irrfan Khan) tells her not to participate in the contest as he wants his sister to win. If she participates in the contest, then he's kill her. But she ignores the warning of the mentally retarded brother and takes part in the contest and wins. Tanya decides to kill herself after losing the contest but her brother thwarts her moves. He swears revenge on Simran and goes to her house to kill her. But he gets killed instead. A frightened Simran along with her friends decides to get rid of his body by throwing it on a railway track to make his death look like a suicide. However, the dead man rises from his grave and starts extracting his ultimate revenge.

The performances are really bad. The four lead actors look confused and sleepwalked throughout the film. The worst actor among them is definitely Aditi Govitrikar. She hams incessantly and screams and yells. Divya Palat looks lost in front of camera. Apoorva Agnihotri does show his spark in the climax but at that time, he could really do nothing to save the film. Amar Upadhyay is one of the worst actors to be seen in Bollywood after a long time. Maybe he should get back to small screen. The only actor who puts his best effort in the film is Irrfan Khan. He does look scary and his looks are at par with his crazy, kinky role. Irrfan shows he can really go a long way in Bollywood. Prem Chopra and Gulshan Grover are just okay. Shweta Menon has a 15 minute-ish role.

It seems the director Shyam Ramsay created a rough draft but forgot to put his finishing touches on it. The weak screenplay is his biggest undoing. The editing is slow and the pace drops in the second half, making the movie a torture for the viewer.

I've never seen a film where the actors look so disinterested in the proceedings and are just there for the sake of being paid.

Like its title, Dhund-The Fog disappears in the fog once the film is over.

Avoid!!!
