Movie Review:  Ek Thi Daayan (2013) (Hindi)  **1/2 Rating
Theatre Release: April 21, 2013 (India)
Language: Hindi
Direction : Kannan Iyer
Banner :  Balaji Motion Pictures
Genre:  Horror thriller
Viewers Group:  13+

AVA Score: 6  (Max 10)

(L-Low   M-Moderate   H-High D-Don’t Miss it)

So here comes our own Desi ‘underworld’ alike horror flick from the soap queen Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj with the concept of Daayan and Pishaach instead of Wolves and Bats . ‘Ek thi Daayan’ tries to bring something novel and original to the horror genre in the mainstream Indian cinema  but as a horror flick it failed to shock you or thrilled you in whole with its hollow screenplay and half baked story esp. in the second half.

Bobbo (Emraan Hashmi) is a famous magician disturbed with his haunted past remembrances. He lost his sister and father when he was eleven years old while they were playing hide and seek game with their step mom. Bobo  with his dark past  believed that a Daayan was responsible for the lost of his family. As he grew up he met Tamara and both fell in love. Further they decided to adopt a child from missionary viz. Zubin who is a huge fan of Bobo – The Magician. During a magic show, a lady named Lisa Dutt assisted him in  a magic trick which he believed that Daayan has returned to his life to take him back.

Written by Mukul Sharma and Mastero Vishal Bhardwaj , Ek thi Daayan undoubtedly explores a new concept in the horror genre with the tadka of  RGV’s ‘Bhoot’ & Bhatt’s ‘Raaz 3’ ambience, romance, music and Myths around Daayan. But since it’s a horror regime Kannan Iyer as director  failed to generate the ambience of horror required with its lousy screenplay and editing. Even the story lacks the proper imagination and the writer and director both seems lost in many places. For eg

1) Meeting of Bobo with a psychiatrist and go back to his childhood was stupid since he was already well aware of all the events happened to his childhood.
2) Daayan on return said she took 20 years to come back in her form but excuse us if  Diana has come back as Tamara than how come both are existing at the same place in last.
3) Bobo  getting his powers as Pischach just by folding his hands crossed is too unrealistic and unconvincing.
4) In the last scene When Zubin opened his eyes in hell despite being a child he never scared or surprised and simply knows what he has to do with the knife.

Music by Vishal Bhardwaj is a soothing relief to the movie.  ‘Yaaram’ is the best track and its got a totally experimental tempo you will enjoy. The Second track ‘ Kaali Kaali Aanko Ka’ is  melodious and beautifully written by Gulzar. ‘Launtungi Mein’ despite seems to be a major Daayan track never made a presence in the main movie. ‘Tote Udd Gaye’ is an average track. Cinematography by Saurabh Goswami is decent.

Regarding Performances, Konkana Sen Sharma stands out in her all avatars. Huma Qureshi is decent and Emraan Hashmi is now a champ in this genre and has nothing to do different here.  Bhavesh Balchandani as Zubin is average but Vishesh Tiwari as Young Bobo  and Sara Arjun as Misha  are superb. Kalki Koechlin in her short  but notable performance looks sweet.

The writers have left ample space for the sequel of the movie and may named it as ‘ Daayan Returns’ but considering this Daayan I would wish if they won't target family audience for a horror flick as it would be derogatory for a filmmaker if a 10 year old child laugh at their movies instead of scaring. Next time, Please return with a serious horror thriller. And a tip please consult Bhatt Camp and RGV for a while they may help you a bit ;P

Movie Review: Commando (2013) (Hindi)  *** ½  Rating

Language: Hindi
Direction : Dilip Ghosh
Banner :  Reliance Entertainment
Genre: Action thriller
Viewers Group:  13+

From the depth of the sea, from the heights of the sky , from the vastness of a desert and from the darkness of the forests when a common man is trained 24 x 7 to serve the nation a commando is born and this week Vidyut Jamwal successfully convinced the audience as a new action star in the industry. Bestowed with excellent physique and decent looks each action he has performed on the screen is so convincing that you cannot put your eyes off as for the first time all stunts has been performed by an actor himself without using body doubles and even without using the ropes and wires for most of his stunts

The story begins with a crash of an Indian army helicopter on a routine training into a Chinese border and Captain Karanveer Singh Dogra (Vidyut Jamwal) got arrested by the Chinese forces suspecting him as a spy. Now both governments for the sake of their self interest put Karanveer’s life at stake. Karanveer escape from the Chinese forces and reaches Pathankot in India though forest area. There he runs into a girl, Simrit (Pooja Chopra) who is escaping from AK 74 (Jaideep Ahlawat) goons and thus how Karanveer got a new motive as a Commando.

Dilip Ghosh, the director has served a cheesy, raw action flick that one would love to see once. All three main characters were able to hold your attention throughout the movie. The screenplay is crispy the story has nothing novel to mention and one could find it non brainer especially in the climax but it’s the Vidyut Jamwal as a commando and his stunt director Franz Spilhaus who has directed  remarkable action sequences  that you can ignore small hiccups.  Pooja Chopra is decent but every  Punjabi girl should not be portrayed as ‘Meet’ of ‘Jab we meet’ and this is where director did a little work to give Pooja a different identity.

Cinematography by Sejal Shah is extremely notable especially for the song ‘ Sawan Bairi’. Music and lyrics are average and does not make much impact. Jaideep Ahalawat has come up with a different kind of villain and does his part well.

If you are an action flick lover than Commando will sate your thirst for sure.

WITNESS HISTORY : Original and Remake Version of Chashme Baddoor Releasing on Same Day

Links to this post




Tomorrow on 5th April 2013 we would witness an event which is unique, controversial and one of its kind in the history of Indian Cinema ,Original Chashme Buddoor  by Gul Anand and its remake Chashme Baddoor directed by David Dhawan are releasing on the same day.

People from Industry however showed their concerns via tweets on twitter


Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta slammed Jayshree Makhija, the co-producer of the 1981 film Chashme Buddoor, for releasing the original digitally-restored film on the same day as David Dhawan's remake.

'Old Chashme Baddoor has been digitally remastered and releasing next week I heard. Kya yaar? What about the new one then? Makhija family sells the remake rights of Chashme Baddoor and then remasters n releases the original just ahead of the remake. Remasterplan,' he tweeted.

'Poor Gul Anand, the nicest producer I've ever known must be turning in his grave over what his inheritors are doing with Chashme Baddoor. I can totally understand Sai Paranjpe feeling totally betrayed by the Makhija family over their parasitical behavior on Chashme Baddoor,' he added.

But that's not all.

'Studio buys it, makes it, promotes it n they come outta nowhere to release it the same day. Studio should take legal action. But having personally dealt with Mrs. Makhija this comes as no surprise. Ethical business practise and her are poles apart,' he added further in a reply to Ekta Kapoor.

The remake version, directed by David Dhawan, and the original digitally-restored film both release on April 5, 2013
