Storyline

Manchester-based Dr. Kabir Malhotra is late at arriving at a restaurant to meet his wife, Sia. When she is not there he naturally assumes that she is annoyed with him. When he fails to hear from her, he decides to report her missing to the police. While they launch their investigation, he is approached by a woman named Disha who claims that she can assist him in locating his wife. He scoffs at her when he is told that she is a psychic, and thinks she may be looking for publicity and money. But when her prophecies and predictions turn out to be accurate as well as the police themselves claim that she assists them, he decides to enlist her help. The question remains - will her powers provide any clues as to Sia's whereabouts? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Should have been released directly on Home Video.
25 August 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The posters of the film read "From the producers of 1920 and Haunted" and they are also designed in such a way that you get an idea that this is another horror movie coming from the same production house which gave us these two HITS. Its good to be associated with some successful projects but its also shameful trying to fool the viewers by giving them a wrong impression of the film in such a way.

The reason behind the above statement is that PHHIR is not at all a Horror film as being projected. It has got only one element of "A Telepathic Girl" in its storyline and doesn't have anything else, usually related with the horror genre. In real terms it's a mystery thriller with a slight reference of re-incarnation of the lead pair who meet again after a very childish kind of climax, opening the suspense. So just don't get fooled by its deceiving publicity campaign tried by the producers.

Taking its references from "Eyes of Laura Mars" (1978), which has already inspired more than one movie in Bollywood, PHHIR remains a very weak film throughout which neither excites nor impresses even once till its end. The writers are not able to hold your attention at all since their content is all repetitive and boring without anything interesting to offer in the name of suspense. The whole film revolves around a loving husband's search of his beloved wife, who has vanished all of a sudden without any intimation. He is helped by another girl who has got some God-gifted psychic powers, but soon after the introduction of her kidnapping plot, the film loses it all.

Director Girish Damija, gets only one thing right in his film and that's the Cinematography. By approving and working on a very old, overseen and flop kind of mystery revealing in the end, the director wastes his own hard work and efforts put into the project, quite amazingly. And when there is nothing in the film to keep you hooked, the performers remain handicapped and fail to make any kind of impact on the viewers. Hence though Rajneesh Duggal and Adah Sharma show big signs of improvement in their respective acts but their sincerity goes in vain. Roshni Chopra playing the vanishing wife is there just like a guest actor, who is only asked to give some glamorous poses in front of the camera, instead of acting.

Incidentally this film was leaked over the net in an unmixed format much before its theatrical release, which is indeed a serious matter to be looked into by all the producers of the Industry and I hope it never happens again. But its leaking before the release cannot be given as an excuse for its non performance at the box office, because the film actually hasn't got anything in it to be HIT. And I strongly believe that its makers too knew this bitter truth and that is why they opted for the misguiding way of publicizing it as a Horror flick in order to get some initial audience. However in real terms, this should have been released on the Home Video directly and that should say it all.
