A Flat is not at all even a decent attempt in the name of horror flicks. Avoid the movie to avoid unwanted headache! Rating: 1/2 Out of 5 (Non-Starter)

When was the last time a bollywood horror movie scared the hell out of you? Can' t remember? Well, we can' t blame our patrons for this as not much has been achieved in this genre as far as the story line, script and the treatment is concerned. Bollywood has not been able to draw first blood in this field for ages.

In the last decade, there had been some movies like Raaz, Raaz- The Mystery Continues, Bhoot, Vaastu Shastra, 13 B, Phoonk and Phoonk-2 that tried to explore the same and make some progress but nothing significant has come up so far.

Meanwhile, the point to note here is that most of these horror flicks have been filmed in a haunted house and the latest to join the fore is this week' s horror flick ' A Flat' .

Having said that, does ' A Flat' live up to the expectation of an average movie goer or able to scare the daylight out of you? The answer is an awful ' NO' .

Let' s see the basic story of this dilapidated fanfare in the pivotal words of none other than Mr. Taran Adarsh

A spate of unexpected events jolts Rahul [Jimmy Shergill] as soon as he lands from U.S. to pacify his lost love Preeti [Kaveri Jha]. First, the mysterious death of his dad [Sachin Khedekar], when he visits the flat, followed by the baffling disappearance of Preetiā€¦ and now Rahul finds himself trapped in his own flat, completely cut off from the world. The only companion he has is a ghost.

The movie suffers due to the lack of novelty in the plotline and sequences that follows. They tend to follow the same routine stuff that horror movies had been following since ages and that' s what makes it very predictable and boring.

The miscasting of this wrongly executed movie is another thing that holds it back from hogging the correct limelight and makes you go yawn.

The only saving grace is its Cinematography that is too good. Background scope is an important aspect of a horror to build the spooky environment but this film does not boast of a good one, it' s not convincing at all. Horror flicks are also deemed to have at least one good number to hum but sad, this has got nothing to carry home on the musical front.

Talking of the performances, Jimmy Shergill does a good job while the role essayed by Sanjay Suri is not convincing. Kaveri Jha looks confidently okay and same can be said for Sachin Khedekar and Naseer Abdullah.

On the whole, A Flat is a shamelessly written horror movie that falls flat on its own face and is not at all convincing.

From the box-office point of view, the producers and distributors of the fanfare are destined to entail heavy losses. No scope whatsoever! Thumbs Down!

Rating: 1/2 Out of 5 (Non-Starter)

Verdict: You ought not to visit this flat at all. No chance!
