Exactly How Many Remakes Of The Grudge Does Bollywood Intend To Make?
28 January 2011 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

Having been grossly mislead into seeing this film due to its rating, I was expecting a good watch.

However from the initial opening of a woman committing suicide by jumping from the top of a building, I quickly flashed back to the scene in The Grudge where Peter (Bill Pullman) takes his own life in a similar fashion.

As the opening credits appear in the film you see the trademark long black hairs ditto The Grudge opening credits. At this point I was thinking to myself that I had made a BIG mistake.

This film also borrows from 1408(2007) where Mike Enslin (John Cusack) is trapped inside a haunted room and unable to escape it. In this film the character played by Jimmy Shergill is also unable to leave his flat as he is trapped by a ghost who haunts it.

Also the ghost is also copied (stolen is a better word) exactly from The Grudge.

Plot of film: Rahul (Jimmy Shergill) arrives from U.S. to make amends with his love, Preeti (Kaveri Jha) in India. He buys a flat from his long time friend.

His dad (Sachin Khedekar), dies under mysterious circumstances when he visits the flat, followed by the baffling disappearance of Preeti. And soon Rahul finds himself trapped in his own flat, completely cut off from the world. The only companion he has is a ghost.

The ghost is of a woman who had been cheated into false marriage, unknowing that the man she was about to marry had already been married. And then when she got pregnant, her husband brought in a doctor that specialized in illegal abortions. During the abortion she dies, and her husband hides her body within a wall in the flat and then plastering it up with cement so no one would notice when he sold the flat.

Now this ghost wants revenge at any cost. In order to lure her husband, she uses Rahul as her tool.

Bottom line: if after reading the plot you STILL want to SEE this film, go right ahead! The only horror films that are halfway decent and at least worth the money spent on it are those directed by Vikram Bhatt. Shaapit and 1920 are good examples of watchable horror films.
