The plot: A photographer (has no qualms about using a handycam) takes a girl to a dargah where she is possessed. He falls in love with her (post-incident, mind you). Also present is a rapist friend. Who is murdered. By a ghost. Police suspects couple. Couple makes out.
A truly multicultural experience: Goan Riya Sen plays a Christian named Jennifer, but goes by a Hindu nickname Jiya. The protagonist is called Kabir (layer alert) portrayed by an actor called Eddie Seth. Also, all the ghosts are Muslim.
As if thats not all, you have two Christian padres (ineffective), a Hindu tantric baba (dead), a Muslim equivalent (Yashpal Sharma), and Oshiwara Cops (clueless, ergo, in character).
This is Riya Sens follow-up release to Noukadubi/Kashmakash. From an exemplary performance as a lost bride to pulling off a Rakhi Sawant and screaming Jejus!, wearing necklines so deep that the widest lens cant capture it all. No other actor offers such range.
The plot features romance, action, horror, and a much too generous dose of (unintentional) comedy. What more can you ask for? Fine, there is also a scene of a fat, halfwit man playing football with invisible ghosts.
Rape scenes inspired from the 80s. Shot like it too.
Major threesome undertones - Boy/Girl/Girl assistant-friend; Boy/Girl/ Cop; Boy/Girl/Boys father (this one is the least subtle).
The cinematographer is having a blast with unrestrained use of a jimmy-jib. When hes out of ideas or indoors, he sticks the camera behind chairs or under a table, going for the arty look.
The film spans from Goa to Mumbai to Pune to Shimla, with many roads driven on in many cars. Actually its just one road.
Dialogue (paraphrasing to avoid juicy spoilers):
Guy in shock: Woh aadmi nahi, jinnaat (spirit/demon/ghost) hai. Cop (deadpan): Oh ho.
Doctor: Maine usse dawai diya hai. Subah tak hangover theek ho jayega.
Riya: Aaaiii. Ande mein cockroach hai! Eddie: Nahin. Friend-Assistant: Ho sakta hai. Tantric baba ko milna padega. whoops. Sorry, looks like were out of space.
