A very tiny horror masterpiece!
21 January 2012 | by ankur01-253-473616See all my reviews

I remember seeing this the first time, when I was just seven years old and for some weeks, I couldn't sleep with the lights off. 'Raat' is undoubtedly one of the very rare genuine horror films of its time that can never be forgotten, because of quite a few reasons and a primary reason being it's impeccable cast performance, specially Revathi who gives a brilliant and effortless performance as the protagonist of the story. A fabulous performance from Om Puri as well, who breathes even more life into the story without a doubt. this is a film that always reminds us of of Ram Gopal Varma as one of the very few good directors of all time.

Overall, this film will make you shiver for sure, It is not a great film, but the performances are very memorable.
