Storyline

Wealthy Aman Bhargav and Kaaya Shekhawat are in love and would like to get married. While driving the duo meet with an accident, are hospitalized and recuperate. Kaaya's parents find out that she is seeing Aman, and discuss this alliance with Aman's father. They point out to them that Kaaya can never marry due to a 350-year old curse on their family that was imposed by Archarya Sachidanand after Maharaja Ranjeet's Singh's brother sexually molested and killed the former's daughter. Aman, together with his friend, Shubh, approach Professor Pashupati, and with his help hopes to reverse the curse. The foursome accordingly delve deep into this matter - not realizing that soon Kaaya will descend into a vegetative coma, and the trio will find their lives endangered by an ancient and vengeful entity.

Not as good as his earlier "1920"
1 June 2010 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

When I watched Vikram Bhatt's previous horror outing "1920" I thought man, this guy has got some style. It was like giving stiff competition to Ramgopal Verma. And with the same expectation levels if you happen to watch "Shaapit", the whole experience is so Ramsay Bros.

The writing is culprit, too many cinematic liberties. In terms of execution there are huge lapses. The love-track between the couple loaded with infatuation. One would expect an impact when Rahul Dev enters, sadly his character shapes up to blue-collar quack. The scary moments are glorified Ramsay's flick. The climax should have been trimmed to make it sleek. The period drama portion deserve special mention though.

The cat is out of the bag that Aditya Narayan has chosen unwisely. He lacks screen-presence. Shweta Agarwal barely has anything to contribute in second half. The chemistry between the pair is zero. Natasha Sinha apes Ila Arun. The performance of the priest who sets the curse in motion deserves special mention.

On a whole "Shaapit" barely escapes being classified a B-grade flick.

PS: Nearly forgot, I am enlightened that a few centuries ago even the royal blood had a penchant for item songs!
