Trivia

In a scene in the mountains you can see the registration letter C-GEJC on a small yellow float plane. This aircraft (Cessna A185F) is registered to Whistler Air, a Canadian company. This suggests that the mountain scenes were shot in British Columbia, which would explain the west coast architecture of the holiday house. See more »

Thrilling but unrealistic
15 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie does keep you watching. Unlike the typical bollywood movie, the story moves along rapidly in this one. So even though you can predict exactly what's coming next, while the traditional Hindi movie takes its sweet old time in getting there, this one gets right to the point.

The story was quite unrealistic. I don't mean the premise, as that in fact was a pretty good one. However, the way the story unfolded was quite far-fetched and worthy of a cheap horror novel. Amitabh Bachchan gave a strong performance as always but the rest of the cast can't act at all. Moreover, the characters of Ria and her mother were unintelligent to an extreme. Especially the mother... I know they wanted to established that Amitabh as the father was the head of the household, but having the mother's character be this useless is well, quite useless.

The only positive thing I can say about this movie was the looming dark feel it had to it. I haven't seen this in a Hindi movie since Aks and Sangharsh. This gloomy, evil, dark, helpless, "feel something in your stomach" shade is rarely seen in bollywood, and perhaps writers and directors need to explore it a little more. It works wonders in Hollywood, so why not bring it home? They bring everything else home don't they?

Perhaps I'm being too critical. Perhaps the movie was only meant to be as good as it ended up being. All in all, not worth it. 4.5/10
