Phobia is an interesting psychological thriller with a bit confusing but interesting thriller.
1 June 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Phobia (2016) : Well psychological thrillers are the best genre which are most intriguing and always messes with mind.They are rare in Indian Cinema and now after a long time its time for Phobia.

Plot: An agoraphobic young woman Mehek (Radhika Apte), traumatized by past events, finds herself trapped and terrorized in her own home.She experiences weird apparitions and even involves in missing mystery of previous resident

Plus Points: 1)Radhika Apte: Still now I thought that she is just an ordinary actress but with this film she is one of the best now.She is awesome in her role as Mehak and we can feel her agony,fear etc.. She is heavily successful in involving us in this movie.

2)Music: BGM is one of the best part of Phobia.It is very tensing and easily builds up tension.I loved it.

3)Screenplay: Screenplay is very good and thrilling.We can easily involve in this movie.Its climax is very good but its bit confusing.Interval block clearly raises our expectations.

Minus points: 1)Similarities: It has similarity with few movies like Katha,Intruders,Dementia etc.. But its climax made it unique.That's the major success for Phobia.

So,Phobia is an interesting psychological thriller with a bit confusing but interesting thriller.

My rating 7.25/10
