It's rare in Bollywood - a story that takes its own time to cultivate, where developments don't happen in hyper-mode, where problems are simple and real

It's one of those films you wanted to like. But Dekh Tamasha Dekh turns out to be a film that has the right intentions, but is let down by slapdash execution.

Take the premise, set in '90s Mumbai, for instance. A dead man leads to two extremist religious groups fighting over whether he was Hindu or Muslim. Both groups want the dead person, so they lay the body to rest as per their customs. There are incendiary leaders on both sides raking this up as a major issue. Of course, the fact that the person died as he was crushed under a politician's hoarding, is symbolic.

The kids might enjoy the fun equation and unlikely friendship between the aged ghost and young boy, but the political and supernatural themes gets a bit too dense. In the end the film leaves you with a preachy, but timely message. If you don’t mind the supernatural comedy taking a somber turn towards the finale, the film is worth a watch!

About the only glorious aspect of the film is Sunita Radia's cinematography giving us breathtaking visual splendor.

So what you get in the end is a gorgeous looking, muddled film that leaves you unmoved.

I guess anything goes in a David Dhawan movie. Which is disappointing. Our movies and audience are making an attempt to evolve, but some filmmakers are insistent on rehashing the same old formula with new actors. Watch it if you don’t mind being served old wine in a glitzy new bottle.

Debut writer-director Sanamjit Talwar gives us an underworld film when the viewer has tired of this genre. The least one expected was a new perspective. As a character in the films says –‘It is poetic’. Sadly the film is not. Avoid.

It has all the trappings of your typical horror film – the doors closing, tormented spirits, the possession and scary faces. And yet Ragini MMS 2 is super-fun!

Overall Ratings 


With none of the charm of the original, the film will certainly infuriate those who’ve seen it. Even for those who haven’t, the only draw would remain the story about ghosts and their struggle to retain their home. But with unforgivably clumsy execution and mostly awful acting, one would recommend you rent out the original.

Overall Ratings 


The film could have been a modern rom-com dealing with issues of the recession, over-bearing parents, changing love equations etcetera. But what you get are good-looking actors, a few immersing moments, and an amusing sitcom episode at best.
