Storyline

In today's world, the major source of relief, information and entertainment is the TV. So much so, that it has moved up from its modest position of being just another 'household appliance' to actually determining the power equation in a family. It is easy to identify the hierarchy in the family depending on who controls the remote control. So what happens when the TV realizes this power and begins to take control? What happens when instead of showing you the facts, the TV, begins to show you what it wants you to see? What happens when Manohar, to his great horror, realizes that this is exactly what is happening with his wonderful family, who has just moved into their sweet new home at 13B. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When the Electrician sent by Manohar to drill holes in the Pooja room gets a shock, we can see the electric socket on the wall, but later when Manohar is checking the room the wall is bare. Additionally, when Manohar is hammering the nails the first time and enters the Puja room, there is no electrical socket. So the electrical outlet was stuck to the wall only when the Eletrician comes in. See more »

Engrossing thriller
25 March 2009 | by AishFanSee all my reviews

Yes, finally a thriller! There is definitely a scarcity of movies belonging to this genre. Whether it be your Abbas-Mastan flicks or other supernatural suspense such as Raaz, 1920, and Bhoot, I'll be there! 13B is a great edge-of-the-seat thriller that keeps you as engrossed as the ladies in the film are with the TV serials. The film revolves around a mysterious TV show that mirrors and reveals what will happen in the protagonist's family's life that day. Everything is great--lighting, sound, etc. The plot is fascinating and the unraveling of the story behind the TV serial's characters is eye-popping! The violent flashbacks and disturbed characters leaves the viewers horrified! Madhavan, as always, has given a sincere and outstanding performance! You feel terrified with him. Good watch.
