A novel attempt by Bollywood
20 June 2016 | by harshit_pandeSee all my reviews

A few days ago I watched "Phobia". First of all this is new for Bollywood as they don't make much psychological thrillers and Radhika Apte pulls the entire movie on her shoulders with ease. Secondly, it is funny in 1 or 2 scenes which is not very good rather really sad for a horror/ psychological thriller and it is only Radhika Apte's acting which makes you sit in the theater till the end. In the first half, the movie builds with much novelty in it but second half has some instances from a few Hollywood movies but still it keeps you engaged. So, in total it had a few major drawbacks but a good experiment for Bollywood and some really great acting so I would go with 6/10 for this.
