Maya's six year old daughter Nia starts to speak to her dead father. Maya initially feels that she has created an imaginary father to fill the gap in her life but slowly Maya's life starts to fall apart and the reality gets darker till she starts to doubt her own sanity. Aatma is a psychological thriller set in a supernatural framework. It is about the inheritance of loss, a tableau of conflicting emotions played against a diabolic backdrop. Written by Anonymous

Aatma Will Cause You Hypertension!
23 March 2013 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

NOTE: If you've watched Oren Peli's Paranormal Activity Series, Mama (2013), The Possession (2012) & Spanish thriller The Orphanage, DO NOT bother to watch this flick.

To start with, Aatma has extraordinary special effects and a wonderful climax. That's all. And to end with, the story is clichéd and boring with dull soundtrack. What could've been told in less than ten minutes has been made up as a movie which doesn't send a single chill down your spine, if only lights turning off and doors shutting scared the Jack of YOLO times. Not a chance.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the guy behind me going and spending 300 bucks, has a very small role. His dialogs are vague and is totally wasted. The main characters are Bips & the debut child artiste with not-so-happening smile. The remaining cast performance is below average. Now, since the story has a parade of loopholes here and there, even if you try to enjoy this movie, you abruptly fail at every juncture because of large implications and imagination left to interpret in free space.

A maze where the exits are closed and the screenplay so dramatic, this horror turns out to be a big let-down for an industry crippled with nonsensical movies. If this suit follows, then I am afraid the horror genre cannot be bounced further; not to mention about the other genres' plight.

BOTTOM LINE: An inventive thought and hard work invested with indigenous story, but Aatma fails at every point of categorizing it as an unconventional horror Bollywood flick due to poor execution and sound effects. Not recommended.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES

Language: No | Sex or Nudity: No | Violence: Very Strong | Gore: Critical | Smoking, Alcohol or Drugs: No | Vulgarity: No
