Help is a decent attempt from the director. Even though the movie doesn't have a tight screenplay, is boring at times, but there are certain moments that make your heart beat faster..

I watched the movie in my phone, during a late night travel, and it was damn silence all around... The opening scene of Susan drawing weird pictures and killing herself were damn creepy with its BGM. That actress who played Susan has a creepy look, and her eyes and the way she looks towards the camera is creepy and disturbing... There are several other moments also, which makes a kind of uneasiness in the viewers' minds.

The movie has Bobby Deol and Mugdha Godse in it, but neither of them has much to perform. Mugdha at least had some dual scenes, and some stone-expression scenes, but Bobby Deol had nothing to do, he just had to support the flow of the story. Shreyas Talpade also appears in 6-7 scenes, he also has nothing much to perform.

The movie actually belongs to the BGM director and the Re-recordist. If at all the movie makes some impact in our mind, it is because of the creepy sounds factor. Ah, Jyoti Dogra who played as Susan deserves special remark, for her creepy looks.

The movie partly inspires from 'Mirrors' in few sequences, especially towards the climax.

The movie lacked clarity in some points, but the flashback scenes were beautifully directed.

There are three songs composed by Ashu, the song 'Kehna Hai' is awesome!!! The other two tracks are below average...

On the whole, an OK- OK kind of movie.
