VISHESH Films (Mahesh & Mukesh Bhatt) are back again after seven years to recreate the success of their Super Hit Thriller RAAZ starring Bipasha Basu. Though their new film is not a sequel, but the ingredients are same as the earlier RAAZ, same spooky affair, scary moments, chill factor, good music etc.

The Story is about a successful psychic Painter Prithvi (Emraan Hashmi), who paints death on his canvas. He begins having disturbing visions and one of his paintings shows a woman whose life is in danger. He becomes disturbed and manages to trace down the lady Nandita (Kangana Ranaut). When he warns her about her death Nandita refuse to buy her theory, but when she starts facing the incidents shown in the paintings, she has no options left but to believe Prithvi. And when her death is predicted in one of his paintings, she gears up and starts her journey to unravel the scary mystery with his help, which also forces her to stay away from her boyfriend Yash (Adhyayan Suman).

What happens next and What is the secret ???? For this you better watch the movie..

Director Mohit Suri has once again done a wonderful job and has rightly built up the atmosphere and horror which is the most important factor in this genre. He is ably backed-up by well written script, tight screenplay, perfect casting, gripping cinematography, some fine performances and good music. What else you need in a movie ?

About performances, Emraan has once again come up with a brilliant performance, he really is unpredictable and is well matched-up by equally competitive Kangana Raut. Newcomer Adhyayan surprisingly has shown a strong potential and is confident. Jackie in a small role is okay.

Overall, this ghost story is upto the expectations with all the scary moment, chills and thrills. The first half starts off well with even more interesting 2nd half, though the climax could have been a far better and is less convincing. The pace of the movie is perfect for a horror genre. Some scenes are worth mentioning as – Kangana transformation into abusive man, ATM & Bath tub sequence, Bulls attacking Kangana & Emraan etc. are superb.

To sum up, the movie is worth a watch and will turn out to be a winner for Bhatts at the Box office. Go and enjoy the long weekend.
