Storyline

In today's world, the major source of relief, information and entertainment is the TV. So much so, that it has moved up from its modest position of being just another 'household appliance' to actually determining the power equation in a family. It is easy to identify the hierarchy in the family depending on who controls the remote control. So what happens when the TV realizes this power and begins to take control? What happens when instead of showing you the facts, the TV, begins to show you what it wants you to see? What happens when Manohar, to his great horror, realizes that this is exactly what is happening with his wonderful family, who has just moved into their sweet new home at 13B. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The majority of the film takes place inside an apartment. A temporary shooting floor was created from scratch in Egmore, Chennai inside which an elaborate apartment set was erected. See more »

Goofs

When the Electrician sent by Manohar to drill holes in the Pooja room gets a shock, we can see the electric socket on the wall, but later when Manohar is checking the room the wall is bare. Additionally, when Manohar is hammering the nails the first time and enters the Puja room, there is no electrical socket. So the electrical outlet was stuck to the wall only when the Eletrician comes in. See more »

Nail-biting suspense thriller
8 June 2009 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Horror genre over recent years has undergone a massive transformation. No longer it is a straight forward plot meant to scare the living daylights. These days one gets to witness the horror neatly blended with suspense to generate that extra twist and keep the audience in nail- biting mode. Hey, the genre manages to stay alive innit?

Clearly the director has taken inspiration from Poltergiest (ghost- directed by Steven Spielberg) and blends in Japanese horror flick formula's into it. Indeed the effort and the execution deserves a standing ovation and it wouldn't be exaggeration to state that 13B would put RGV to shame. Seriously, Phoonk seems to be child's play in comparison.

The mid-80's era is portrayed brilliantly. The settings are perfect and do take note of the Doordarshan's B&W intro. Nostalgia indeed!

Ж Madhavan:: "BOLLYWOOD!" - this guy is screaming on the top of voice and can somebody at least take notice this time around? He is a consistent and a brilliant performer. 13B has two lead actors - Madhavan and the telly, rest everyone goes out of focus.

Ж Deepak Dobriayl: Now this guy is to watch out for. Every time I see him he doesn't cease to surprise me. Be it Omkara, Shaurya, Dilli-6 or 13B - he manages to successfully pull-off a range of roles/ characters with nothing short of perfection.

Ж Neetu Chandra & Sachin Khedekar:: Neatly compliments to the plot.

Ж Poonam Dhillon:: She needed a better comeback vehicle. Her counterpart in the plot, Suhasini Mulay seemed elegant in comparison.

Ж Dritiman Chatterjee:: Why was he there? Beats me!

Ж Others do their parts as per the demands of the storyline.

What deserves a special mention, even though the telly leads the storyline by a few minutes, it still manages to create an edge-of-seat excitement. And yes, the shock value is immense. A few holes in the plot can be safely ignored.

Verdict:: Go for it!
