Khamoshiyan movie review – Not a typical Horror Mystery

A tempting beauty, an evil husband and a young novelist melting in the dark shadows of beautiful Kashmir, Khamoshiyan brings all the elements of filmmaking into cameras and microphones to bring out a complete package that terrifies and spooks the horror chromosome inside you. That fact that this movie is termed as comeback movie of horror cinema is its plot that isn’t predictable or obnoxious. The performances too, in one way or other, are natural and don’t feel over the top. All in all, it isn’t a typical horror movie that makes you feel cheated after the climax. After a series of debacle, horror cinema is back in B’town. It’s not that this is the most eerie experience ever, but it has the kind of punches that are far better than slow-moving doors, sudden screaming voice and sexual scenes that we are habitual to see in a typical Horror mystery.

The Goodie-Go Points: Without a single drop of doubt, this movie is an ocean of good things that makes up a horror movie. The screenplay by Vikram Bhatt is well structured without gapping loopholes. Karan justifies the direction with almost a new kind of skills that is rare in Bollywood. The best part however is the chemistry between Ali-Sapna and Gurmeet-Sapna. They speak volumes with their eyes and a thousand words through intimacy. One has to mention the devilish smile Gurmeet carries, which is both charming and horrifying at the same moment.

 

The Bad and the Ugly: The first half is almost engaging, with characters settling in quietly and making the story a tad-bit better. But post interval, when the memento for climax is about to happen, the director seems to be in a hurry by reducing few essential key points. As an audience, it looks quite unfinished and incomplete. We ourselves felt that in order to show a happy ending, filmmakers tried wrapping it quicker than we thought.

 

Bollypedia Says…: If you enjoyed Ragini MMS, Alone or any of the horror movies in recent times, then this is the Holy Grail for all you. Go on and enjoy the movie with some of the finest spooky scenes.
