'Amavas' is unintentionally funny instead of being scary..!!😄
8 February 2019 | by Tejas_Vinda_AITSSee all my reviews

Sachin joshi & Nargis Fhakry..!!!

Sachiin Joshi (who also produces the film) and Nargis Fakhri are a couple facing some problems because well, he hears things. You know, like a schizophrenic...

Mona Singh as the resident psychiatrist (she has only one patient, and the paycheck, if that patient is Sachiin Joshi, is enough to pay all her bills, and then some more)

For most of the film, Joshi and Fakhri look very unhappy with each other. "no chemistry"..!

The first half has a series of painfully awkward scenes including a dinner date outdoors that sees Fakhri act like an overgrown child. She's dressed as a femme fatale and runs into the woods, telling him to catch her as she plays hide-and-seek.

The usual horror tropes like chairs rocking on their own, creaking doors and ghosts watching you as you sleep are all there. Does it startle you? No. Does it make you cackle? Yes.

'Amavas' is unintentionally funny instead of being scary..... ,.. mostly because Fakhri and Joshi are unable to breathe life into a string of lifeless dialogues.

The movie has nothing new to offer in terms of a storyline. Bad acting, coupled with a flimsy plot makes this a wretched viewing experience.

The VFX aren't shabby, but they are tedious. Watching a ghost turn into a flesh-eating, blood-thirsty beast with crazy eyes gets boring after it's repeated more than once.

At one point, Fakhri's character Ahana frustratingly claims she doesn't understand what's going on in that castle anymore. Well, same goes for the people watching the movie..!!
