Average....
8 June 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Vikram Bhatt is a terrific storyteller. Right from 'Gunegaar' to his last film '1920', his work has made me a fan of his, so watching 'Shaapit' was a must.

The story of a girl who is trapped in a generational curse, which does not allow her love & marriage and her lover who vows to conquer this curse. Will she come over the curse? 'Shaapit' is a fantastic idea, and so is Bhatt's direction. But the writing falters, especially in the second hour. The climax also is embarrassing and leaves no impact. Anyways, it has it's share of eerie moments, which leave a impact.

Aditya Narayan makes a fine debut. Plus, he's a good singer. Shweta also does a fine job. Rahul Dev is fantastic in a supporting role. Others are adequate.

'Shaapit' is an average watch, but it's worth a watch for Bhatt's terrific direction and Rahul Dev's fantastic performance.
