Indianisation of 'The Canterville Ghost'
abhiawakes2 from India
23 July 2013
If you want to have good time with your kids and family, watch Abhay.
Its a classic remake of Oscar Wilde's popular short story "The
Canterville Ghost." Lets talk a bit about movie, a happy family moved
into a village (perhaps in rajasthan) and choose a Haveli as their
abode. While living there , they soon realise that they are not alone
in the haveli. A ghost is there, who, with his clanking shackles and
'charrmarr' mojari, makes it impossible for family to sleep.
The Ghost is of 'Rana' who use to live here in past. The tussle between
the three children of the new family and ghost of rana entertaining.
Meanwhile Rana and his fellow ghost are also unhappy with this
intrusion in their haveli. How things changes when the past come before
this family and how they deal with it, is nice to see...
I won't disclose much and leave rest for the viewers. Enjoy every bit
of it, cause in India, we rarely get finely made movies for kids with
solid message in it. Actors like Nana Patekar, Benjamin Gelani,
Moonmoon Sen and music by Vishal Bharadwa made this move a classic.
P.S. - I watched Abhay when I was in school, and use to have fear of
ghosts. But this movie gave me a new insight about ghosts, and my fear
turned into the curiosity of learning things behind the scene. :P
