Dramatics has his own charm and experience. I’ve always admired and held the play actors and crew in high esteem. After all, it’s not a movie where one error can be forgiven via retake! In a play, there’s most probably no scope for folly because you are performing live in front of hundreds. And if you commit one, you have to make sure you wittily cover up immediately which obviously isn’t easy. Unfortunately for me, inspite of having such respect for this field, I never got an inclination to attend drama regularly…its movies that caught my fantasy. But at the same time, I made sure that I try to attend plays, although occasionally. And when I got a chance to see Aaine Ke Sau Tukde, I realized this is a chance to be missed due to many reasons. It has Shweta Tiwari as the lead (and ONLY performer), who I consider as one of the finest actresses, and also that it’s directed by Mr Saif Hyder Hasan, our very own MouthShut employee! And I am so glad that I went for it! The play is deftly handled and performed that engages you and doesn’t leave your imagination hours and days after it has ended! An experience to savour!
The premise of the play: Minal has a twin sister Maanya, whom she just hates right from childhood. Maanya was separated from Minal and parents during infancy due to certain unavoidable circumstances and is again brought back home. The parents then tended to attend more to Maanya, leaving Minal dejected and angry. But not only sibling rivalry and More >

Horror films produced in Bollywood follow the same route. At least most of them. The aatma/spirit seeks revenge for the wrong done to him/her. The spirit breathes fire, spits venom, scares the daylights out of the wrong-doers and eliminates them one by one. But, in the final tally, the protagonist puts an end to the aatma‘s atrocities. All’s well that ends well.
HELP is no different. It follows the same rules, except that it has an interesting twist to offer, which, again, is sure to have its share of advocates and adversaries. Unfortunately, the screenplay, based on an interesting concept, gets repetitive at times and excruciatingly slow at places. Besides, the unspoken rule for horror films is that they ought to scare you at the right places, but barring a sequence or two, which do give you jhatkas, the film lacks in the scary quotient. Simply put, the chills are missing.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM

Horror has always been an intriguing genre worldwide and Bollywood is no exception. While the West regularly comes up with interesting spooky films, our cinema hasn’t been much successful in this regard. Few horror films are made and fewer work. Help works but unfortunately only in parts. The plot is brilliant but the execution and some loopholes in the narrative spoil the show!
The story of the movie: Vic (Bobby Deol) is a film director and married to Pia (Mugdha Godse). Their marriage in on the rocks as Pia doubts that Vic is allegedly having an affair with a Bollywood actress. At such a point, they have to rush to Mauritius as Pia’s father (Salim Fatehi) suffers a heart attack. Her father gets out of danger by the time they reach there. However, strange things start happening to Pia as soon as she is Mauritius, especially in her old family house. She realizes that the ghost of her twin sister, who accidentally died when she was 5, is watching her. In the midst, she finds that she’s pregnant. Before she can realize, the ghost possesses her and its upto Vic to take immediate action. What is the ghost’s motive and why has she awakened after so many years? Watch Help to find out!
Help has a spine-chilling beginning! The titles that follow were damn interesting too. However, the film then turns boring and very ordinary thereafter. The heroine wakes up in the middle of the night after hearing something, she exits her bedroom to check what’s going on, an More >
