I saw this film in theatre with my family. It is not a Raaz reboot, it's basically a reboot of Sharman Joshis 1920 London, which was pathetic n laughable. Read my reviews of 1920 London. Vikram Bhatt jus wrote the story of 1920 London. It had a very low budget. It had awful set locations, fake deserts n mansions, bad direction by some Desai, awful songs n unknown producers. Even the costumes of Sharmaan n others were laughable. Very fake London set up. Whereas Vikram directed Raaz reboot himself. The Bhatts n T- series r the producers n of course it has Hashmi who is born to play such roles effortlessly. The cinematography in Raaz reboot was good. Some of the scenes of Romania were well shot n it had that creepy feel to it. The editing was better than 1920 London n the songs of Raaz reboot were much better than 1920 London. The plot of 1920 London was ridiculous. At least the plot of Raaz reboot was bearable. At first even I thot that the twist might be the same as 1920 London's. I thot even Hashmi was doing some mumbo jumbo magic like what Sharmaan did in 1920 London. Agree that the theme of possession has been done so many times, right from The exorcist to The rite. One thing which always bugs me in possession movies (as a gym/yoga instructor) is y do they hav to do hyperextension of the joints. R the demons really fond of yoga The face of the possessed person is getting monotonous. Same ol cut marks n eye color. May b Vikram wanted to do the same what the makers of Exorcist the beginning n Exorcist the dominion did. Two versions in a short span of time. The scene in Raaz where the possessed tells to the priest about his hidden dark secrets was done in the first 1920 too, where the demon talks to the doctor about his shady past. This kinda demonic feeding on fears n revealing secrets was very well done in Gallows hill aka The damned. The holding of the mangalsutra n getting rid of the demons is getting cheesy n too fake man. Remove the religious tone man. Y can't they simply end with the demons taking away one soul or somebody sacrificing their soul. The scenes of the dark shadows standing far away n the scenes of Hashmi as a ghost talking to the husband in the end were better. The museum where they had some horror images was good. Wanna visit that place if it really exists.
Director Vikram Bhatt has started Raaz series in year 2002 and continues the same with Raaz: The Mystery Continues (2009) and Raaz 3D (2012). Huge Success of Raaz has given rebirth to Horror Genre again in Bollywood. These time its Raaz Reboot, the 4th installment of Raaz Series. Will Raaz Reboot will merge success on Box office like its previous versions or will be passed on. Let's analyze.Movie starts with arrival of Rahaan Khanna (Gaurav Arora) and Shaina (Kirti Kharbanda) to Romania. Rehaan is not happy to come to Romania, but due to Shania's insistence, he came to Romania from Mumbai. Things are get worse, when Shania feels that there is some thing wrong in house and Its haunted. She tries to convince Rehaan that there is spirit in house but he refuses the same. In lots of disturbance, She comes across with fashioned photographer Aditya (Emraan Hashmi) who was her ex boy friend. Aditya knows each and every thing happening with her and he promise her to help her out from that condition. Will Aditya Help her out from that condition or what will happen next That's the secret of Raaz Reboot.Raaz Reboot is watchable for these 3 reasons. first Spine Chilling horror scenes. second is Its unique, Suspense and thrilling story line which hooks you up to till suspense reveals and third one is Its top class Cinematography. Cinematographer has done good job of capturing the beauty of Romania. Here I want to add these time Director Vikram Bhatt has done full justice to story line and not only to Horror scenes. You may also feel some times that horror is less or missing in second half but its as per script demand.If we talk about Performances, Emraan Hashmi is good as always, Gaurav Arora has done good job. Its Kirti Kharbanda who has given complete justice to her role, she has given superb performance. Music is hummable and its another plus factor for Raaz Reboot. Background score is really good. Its makes movie scary in some scenes.Overall, Raaz Reboot is Scary with some terrifying sequences. If you are fan of Horror genre, must give a chance to these one. 153554b96e
