Storyline

Jiney is a talented student of Arts with a trauma in her childhood and lack of communication with her mother, and excellent photographer that is not satisfied with her awarded works. When she witnesses a car crash, she is driven by a morbid wish and takes pictures of the dead victim. She becomes obsessed with death, and her close friend Jas feels that Jiney needs help with her abnormal behavior and attraction. When Jiney supersedes her death wish, she receives a snuff video where a girl is tortured and killed in front of the camera. Jiney shows the tape to Jas, who questions the authenticity of the footage, and they believe it is a prank of their friend Anson. When the girls realize that it is not a joke of Anson, Jiney receives another tape with the message inviting her to take a look. When she sees the tape, she becomes scared with the sinister footage.

alfred hitchcock anyone?
4 April 2005 | by mohd_firmanSee all my reviews

I've already seen it and i think it has the same plot as alfred hitchcock psycho... the first part of the movie tell us about the characters and develop into inner complexity on having such habits to take death photograph as part of an art. then it create such scene to make us assume the plot of the movie is about supernatural and such. but suddenly the plot revealed that the whole story is not about supernatural at all. its more to psycho killer kind of thing..

probably it just me but it have a strong aura of Hitchcock Psycho created all over the movie..

it was more towards the plot. but the movie is no way near to the classic Psycho...
