If you're in the mood for a spooky tale, then Ek Thi Daayan might be what you're looking for.
Starring Emraan Hashmi as a magician called Bobo, the film revolves around a mysterious entity called a daayan, the queen of the night, who has haunted him his entire life. He begins to suspect that a charming young woman called Lisa Dutt might be a daayan in disguise. Consequently, his life starts falling apart.
With Kalki Koechlin and Konkona Sen Sharma playing the role of Lisa Dutt in the present and past respectively, it is hard to see exactly how scary these lovely women can be on screen. The trailer leaves the hardened horror fan quite unimpressed, but the film might have a few scares after all.
Verdict: Looks interesting, with mild scares.
