Saansein: Horror and romance that fails to charm the spectators

Saansein Movie Review: Horror and Romance that fails to charm the spectators

 

This Friday, Saansein captures the essence of the theatres where it is played and takes it to a never-ending world of a haphazard plot which follows horror scenes gone wrong and romance that fails to impress the right amount. Directed by Rajiv S Ruia, Saansein features Sonarika Bhadoria (Shirin) and Rajneesh Duggal (Abhay) in the lead roles. Saansein is that one film which if you miss, you will not find yourself blaming yourself for not watching. Music lovers can enjoy the song tracks but then that’s about it. With a failed plot structure and unimpressive scenes, the movie is not a great hit at box office.

The story follows the life of a club singer, a hot and sexy woman named Shirin. She is pursued by many men at the club but no one could really touch her soul. The suspense starts when it is revealed that Shirin disappears each night, without anyone knowing about her whereabouts. Finally, the hero enters, Abhay, who is curious about Shirin and her life. He started to like her and pursued her till her secrets are revealed. This is a story of Abhay helping Shirin, his love, to change her life.

The plot goes on with many hits and misses. The horror scenes are not up to the expectations of the spectators. The screen play which is written by Shiraz Ahmad and Ram Patil, lacks the needed emotional energy which could have taken the movie from a miss to a hit. Thankfully, the running time for the movie is short, at only 101 minutes, with the intermission providing a much needed relief to the spectators. Apart from the plot and direction, the cast and their performances are pretty admirable. One thing which is definitely commendable is the work of the music director, Vivek Kar. After One Night Stand, Vivek has created six music tracks for the movie, Saansein, which music lovers are bound to like.

 

Bollypedia Ratings - 1.5/ 5 Stars

  • Alia Bhatt is the sweetheart of Bollywood. The actress is friends with everyone in the industry, and the whole film industry loves her. It could be the perks of being the amazing person she seems to be. But, she has many people that do not belong to Bollywood, or her family, that are constantly looking out for her. They are all her best friends, she has attained over her lifetime.
  • Akshay Kumar has been one actor that, even in his 50s, does not look that old. The actor has maintained a physique that no actor of his age has been able to maintain. He is fit, and the whole country takes inspiration from him. But, one thing we forget about the actor is the various looks he has kept throughout his career. So we celebrate the different styles that we have seen the actor in.
  • 2017 might have been a bad year for Bollywood, considering the bad movies, and the scarce Box Office collections that the movies made. Also, the controversies surrounding the movies this year, did them more harm than good. But, there are still a few movies from 2017, that we would watch again someday.
  • We have all heard struggle stories of our favourite celebrities, some have been waiters, and some might have been junior artists. But, too many have been backup dancers. From a field that has potentially more than a million people in it, these stars shone so brightly, that they became the cream of Bollywood. These stars started their journey with dancing behind superstars and are now working with them.
  • Bollywood is filled with people, who excel at acting. But other than acting and the storyline, there is another thing that makes our films blockbusters. Dancing! Bollywood movies are filled with dancers. Some dance like they have two left feet, but some, dance like there is no tomorrow. These are the dancers, we are paying a tribute to today.
  • Madame Tussauds is a gem in the age of modern museums, and the capital has become the lucky holder of this gem. Delhiites have become a part of the lucky few, who can now visit these lifelike celebrity wax statues. But, our favourite part is the amazing resemblance, and in some cases the disparity, of these wax figurines.
  • You will watch Fukrey Returns, Ye Wachan Do!
  • Kapil Sharma leaves behind comedy in this one
  • Tera Intezaar should have waited for a better storyline!
  • Julie 2 is as boring as it is dirty!
  • Your soul will shudder by the unfortunate truth in the narrative
  • Tumhari Sulu will make you love the simple pleasures
