The offering is low on credibility and high on stock shocks from supernatural thrillers. The slasher-styled climax is so ridiculous and physically strenuous that I stopped feeling sorry for the audience and began to feel sorry for the two actresses who had to be subjected to this embarrassing trick-and-tweak melodramatic monstrosity that’s ultimately neither dramatic nor scary, simply funny.
The dialogues suggest no connection with the way parents address their children’s lives. Why does Sarita Choudhury speak to her daughter as if she was getting her cues from a teleprompter? More importantly, why propound blind faith, and that too in a film where the actors display scarce confidence in in the purported scares?
