Kaaya's parents find out that she is seeing Aman, and discuss this alliance with Aman's father.

Very entertaining B movie
15 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

Shaapit was my first horror movie seen in a theater. and believe me, it justified the price paid for the ticket. Most of the theater was empty which added to the atmosphere. It may not be the best Vikram Bhatt horror flick but still has some good jump scares. I consider Vikram's Raaz as one of the best bollywood horror films.

the positives: spooky atmosphere, great story setting and build-up, a good mix of science, mythology and history, melodious music, some scary effects & BGM considering it was a low-budget film

the negatives: the cast was new except Rahul Dev so acting was a bit hit-n-miss, Aditya Narayan looked a little childish for the the part of hero but his efforts are worth appreciating, the CGI effects on ghost's design were cheesy

On the whole, a very entertaining fare from Bollywood horror veteran Vikram Bhatt
