What's there in this movie?.

Firstly it is a Anthology type of film like collection of many short stories in a single package.

The best thing of this movie is some scary or pathetic horror packed thriller scenes and background score other than this there is nothing.

The best part of this film is Dibarkar Banerjee directed zombie like short story.other like Zoya Akhtar,Anurag Kashyap and Karan Johar stories are just with few horror scenes and good back grounds scores.

The acting of the casts like Janhvi Kapoor though its her debut it deosn't seem like that,Sobhita Dhulipala,Sukant Goel and Mrunal Thakur are good and fervently performed.

The camera and sound works are excellent and added more effects to the scenes,mainly that slow moving of camera and stopping of sounds in some scenes,it is good to see.

What's not there in this movie?.

Other than horror effects there is nothing,poor logic less content from the starting without any proper ending.

You will definetely feel wasted after watched this movie.

The whole movie is really dead slow with small content in each short story except Dibarkar Banerjee this.

There is also few disgusting bloody  scenes mainly in Anurag Kashyap's story,like that bathroom dream scene.

Star performance:

On director wise it fits to Dibarkar Banerjee because of his story it only little bit engaged and digestable to see.

On cast wise it fits to Sukant Goel because of his acting and expressions.

Story line:

The story line of this movie is,it contains four different stories directed by four different directors.

First story is the paranormal things that happened to one orphan girl working as a house maid nurse,when she went to house of one elderly grandmother.

The second story that revolves between one married women and one school boy.In which the women is going to have a baby.the think of her affection to him as diminishing after the pregnancy,he breaked all the eggs of sparrows that she raised.the story is about the paranormal activities of her after that.

The third story is the people in two neighbouring villages are eating themselves.the only survivor of this village is one small kid and young man after that how they escaped from that villages and the paranormal activities in that villages is the story.

The fourth story is the paranormal things that happens between one married couple.


Good horror scenes but fails to come up with some digestable content,proper ending and some logics.
