  1. I just watched this movie and I liked it. This movie is completely Indian one. Horror quotient is great. The story is quite good. But I think there should be more clarification given about the connection between the curse and the ghost.

    They successfully created a spooky environment in this movie which I think very new to Hindi movies. I liked the professor concept also. They successfully make this character believable also. And they made a good balance between the love and horror. The direction, editing, sound and camera is great. I jumped a lot times in my chair during this movie.

    Now what I don't liked: 1. design of the Ghost. They should have worked more on that.

    2. The song ( I think we can call that item song ) sung before the prince, totally ruined the environment of the movie.

    3. The last destruction scene of ghost. That was too childish.

  2. Okay if u are a fan of horror and have seen the both Raaz movies, you will enjoy this one. The only problem I saw was that they used a lot of graphics and they were really cheesy. But the sounds effects were really good and the places were really spooky looking. The concept was nice but it wasn't at the level of the first RAAZ. In fact a lot of scenarios were taken from the the first RAAZ. If only they had better CGI technology, this would've easily become more scarier than the first RAAZ.

    Aditya Narayan was quite decent being it's his first movie, he didn't overdo his acting anywhere. And offcourse Rahul Dev was just as good as he usually is. It was interesting to see him not playing a negative role for once.

    Overall if u have time to waste, and ur alone and in a mood for something in horror, this will get u where u need to go!

  3. Awesome Movie. Gr8 Horror Effects. That too with sound. Best Bollywood Horror movie. Great Acting.

    Movie starts with love and romance an leads to how romance wins over curse. The way the ghost is characterized is awesome. And the timing of its appearance is unpredictable and awesome. Sound effect and background music is awesome. After Bhoot and Raaz this is the one the finest horror move produced in movie.

  4. Shaapit was my first horror movie seen in a theater. and believe me, it justified the price paid for the ticket. Most of the theater was empty which added to the atmosphere. It may not be the best Vikram Bhatt horror flick but still has some good jump scares. I consider Vikram's Raaz as one of the best bollywood horror films.

    the positives: spooky atmosphere, great story setting and build-up, a good mix of science, mythology and history, melodious music, some scary effects & BGM considering it was a low-budget film

    the negatives: the cast was new except Rahul Dev so acting was a bit hit-n-miss, Aditya Narayan looked a little childish for the the part of hero but his efforts are worth appreciating, the CGI effects on ghost's design were cheesy

    On the whole, a very entertaining fare from Bollywood horror veteran Vikram Bhatt
