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

  • In Bollywood, there was a time, when supporting actors did not receive the appreciation they do now. They were looked at as mere pawns to make the lead look good. But times have changed, and talented artists have taken these so called side roles, and evolved them into the backbone of the films. They are now taking the limelight, and sometimes even overshadow the leads.
  • Unlike popular belief, there have been a large number of celebrities who broke the ‘Career is finished after marriage’ taboo and came out shining like true stars only after they got married. Some turned out to be the major superstars of the country, whereas some struggled to leave an impact on the industry, but the one thing that all of them have in common is that they were married before they set their foot on the silver screen.
  • Whenever a celebrity does something whether good or bad, extraordinary or mundane, the news always manages to make its way to the headlines. The frenzy around Indian celebrities who became politicians is therefore justified. And when the theme is women-centric, it’s even better.
  • We all know actors who are also singers seem to be the latest trend in B-town. And you must be aware there are quite a few of them, but we have news for you! First, this trend is not new-found and secondly there are many celebrities who possess this talent. Shocked aren’t you?
  • Having a legal notice attached to one’s image is not good for any individual, but when you are a star, it is even worse, as every star has a brand name to maintain and landing up in trouble due to such unforeseen circumstances is nothing short of a controversy! Here is a list of top Bollywood stars who went to jail.
  • Delhi is not a place….its a feeling! Being the capital city, it has its advantages and disadvantages, but we sure love it more than anything. A lot of our stars are Delhi kids and proud to be a ‘Dilli ka Launda’ or ‘Delhi ki Tota’. Lets check them out!
