Movie review – Raaz Reboot

Movie review Raaz Reboot pardesi news 1476166104

This is the fourth installment of the Raaz franchise, this overstretched drama is way too clichéd and soppy to hold, though it does amuse the viewers in its own unique ways.

A Happily married couple – Rihaan (Gaurav Arora) and Shaina (Kriti Kharbanda) moves into a heritage hotel like property in Romania, the country of Dracula and call it their home. Rehaan and Shaina returns to Romania after a few years of their marriage. Trouble beckons as the wife starts feeling the existence of an evil entity in their haunted house. However, her deadpan banker hubby refuses to believe her, while her ex beau Aditya (Emraan Hashmi) acts supportive. He also hints that the demonic spirit seeks revenge from Rihaan and not her. What’s the big Raaz that the husband’s been hiding from his wife?

In the end with the help of ancient mantra of the soothsayer and the willpower of a good wife, have saved the good people and pacifies the bad and some raaz in their life.

Though, the story is in the same vein as the first one starring Bipasha Basu and Dino Morea. But this one, supernatural horror film written and directed by Vikram Bhatt, has zero scares, the doors keep slamming on their own, strange whispers keep echoing throughout and the girl sees horrific things but none of it is too scaring for the common viewer.

The dialogues and overall sensibility are equally cheesy. The film implies that ‘Pyaar hi Bhagwan hai’ and that Mangal sutra can act as a suraksha kavach for a woman. There’s also a blind man who knows ‘psychometry’ – the power of touching things, feeling them and understanding their energy. However, this overstretched drama is way too clichéd and soppy to hold, though it does amuse the viewers in its own unique ways.
