Director Ram Gopal Varma' s love for horror continues with the sequel of Phoonk - Phoonk 2. Phoonk had given us moments of fear and thrills. So what one expects from its sequel is more horrifying and a way advanced to the first one. So did Phoonk 2 fulfill the expectations? Sadly not. Phoonk 2 rarely holds a moment of horror in the entire film. The idea was good but not translated efficiently on the screen. Bad writing lets down the film. One more let down is that the film moves very slowly, making you sit painfully in your chair and wait for the next interesting/terrifying moment. Slow pace is what doesn' t work with a horror film and that is what we get in Phoonk 2.
Milind Gadagkar, the writer turned director has handled the idea right, but the problem is with writing. You keep wondering where the spirit of the film has gone.
Phoonk ended with the mysterious Madhu' s (Ashwini Kalsekar) killing. Madhu mastered black magic and used it on daughter (Ahsaas Channa) of Rajiv (Sudeep). Rajiv kills Madhu in Phoonk. However in Phoonk 2 Madhu comes back to pay back to him. Rajiv has now moved to new location with wife Aarti (Amruta Khanvilkar) and their kids Raksha (Ahsaas) and Rohan. The kids start playing around their new house. Scariness begins when Rajiv' s children find a doll and there after the chain of terrifying events begins.
In the film you will see every little thing which can give a horror like feel - secluded bungalow, night sequences, terrifying sounds and the silence. However, it lacked a captivating story. The pre-interval part of the film is simply has no movement except the pre-interval sequence. However the post-interval part holds many unconvincing sequences.
Talking about performances, Sudeep and Amruta Khanvilkar have done a good job. Child actors also performed well. You can see RGV’s eye in the camera movements. Amit Sadh and Neeru didn' t have to do much in the film. Meanwhile, Ashwini Kalsekar is also there for very short time period.
In all, Phoonk 2 is no way ahead of its original. It' s a complete let down of Phoonk. Not up to the expectations. Disappointing!

Phoonk 2: To get a sequel going and have it equally engrossing as its predecessor takes some doing.

Why Ram Gopal Varma has this obsession with horror? Since Phoonk 2 is a disaster, Ramu may decide to get back with one more!That is SCARY!
