Rahul tum bhi? TUM BHI!
29 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

It would be extremely hard to imagine that Rahul Bose to star in "the scary movie". Satiating his tryst for horror genre his loyalist would say...... and flock in dozens to patronise it. Well not stealing the thunder, Rahul Bose single-handedly puts up a bravura performance. But as they say one swallow doesn't make summer. The guy who played the security-in-charge (Dinesh Lamba) compliments nicely with a decent performance. Nassar Abdulla reprises the same character he has been doing dozens of times earlier. Militza Radmilovic is passable.

The entire proceeding give an impression that the entire fare is nothing but a summer project executed by a group of students (read that B-grade flick). It pulls practically every trick up the sleeve to construe a horror movie including inspiration from Japanese horror.

It's the first time that an office has been used as a premise for a horror story which is a novelty indeed. So next time you wish to put in extra hours in the office, think twice!

PS: Its based on a true story - ROFL!
