Read Full Editor Review...

After the movie' s like Raaz, 1920 and Raaz 2, producer-director Vikram Bhatt is back with another horror movie, titled ' Shaapit' . The best part of the movie is that it is the debut of Aditya Narayan, son of noted playback singer Udit Narayan, and Shweta Agarwal, as lead characters. music for the movie has been given by Vikram Bhatt' s cousin, Chirantan Bhatt, who like every time promises to impress the audiences with some fresh melodious tunes, while the lyrics have been penned down by Sameer.

The story of this movie revolves around a young girl, Kaaya which is played by Shweta Agarwal, who has been trapped in a generational curse that makes her family' s life miserable and distressful. Kaya is in love with Aman which is played by Aditya Narayan and the two get engaged. As soon as the rings are exchanged, the young couple meets with an accident, as their car spins and bounces off the road. Kaaya' s parents hear the news, they rush to her side. This is the time when her father reveals that kaaya was cursed by an angry Brahmin. family as many as 300 hundred years back

After proving his ideas in the horror genre, with flicks like ' Raaz' and ' 1920' , Vikram Bhatt will not disappoint you in ' Shaapit' as well. In fact, he even takes a step ahead with his storytelling skills. This movie is divided into two parts - the past in which the crime or mishap took place and the present in which the past comes to haunt people. And, its amazing to see the way Vikram Bhatt blends the present with the past and vice versa is what makes it different from the myriad other, ineffectual Bollywood horror movies.

A good horror movie is one that has lots of scary scenes to keep you glued to your seat and in this regard, ' Shaapit' has more than enough. The audience gets to watch chilling scenes and doesn' t come out complaining the climax of the film is a bit lengthy but provides the perfect culmination to its story. Talking about the technical aspect, the background and cinematography and even the special effects, everything works in favor of the flick.

Like in every other bollywood movie, there are flaws in this movie as well. For instance, Shweta' s revival from coma, towards the end, seems archaic. And the two background stories that explain what curse was all about would have been better with a merger towards the end. Now, coming down to performances, Aditya Narayan has a commendable work. He is a complete natural on-screen and even sings well. As far as Shweta is concerned, she is brilliant, but didn' t get much scope, especially in the second half. Rahul Dev was very good in his understated role, while Shubh Joshi, Natasha Sinha, Murli Sharma, and Nishigandha Wad were able. A must watch, for all horror lovers!
