Crap!
17 December 2004 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

A total copy of "The Entity" made in 1981 however the director goofed up big time. Compromising on the CGI makes the movie sloppy and cheesy.

A few scenes are so cheap and make you wonder if you are watching a B-grade movie. In fact the whole movie transports you back 15-years to the era of Ramsay's brothers.

In "The Entity" the protagonist has vast scope to display her histrionics which could have been the only apparent reason for Tabu to nod for the role.

Tabu's early years of troubled childhood leave a bad taste in mouth and the redemption of Avtar Gill makes you wonder if the storyboard got lost during movie-making.

Guddu Dhanoa - please stick to action flicks and Deol's.

Avoid at all costs.
