STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) A legendarium kind of universe where human, ghost, witches, and werewolves co-exist. Huge potential if developed as a TV Series with a creative director at the helm.
2) 80s look.

 
CONS –
1) Plot with great potential but mediocre execution from the director Austin Vesely.

Sadie: I’m gonna tell you a story about a ghost, a werewolf, and a pretty shitty pizza place. It all started, when the werewolf came back to town.

CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 4/5

 

PROS –
1) Spooky and funny. Possibly one of the best Bollywood movie of this genre. Great debut for Amar Kaushik.
2) Supporting cast: Pankaj Tripathi as Rudra got the best lines, and Vijay Raaz cameo was spot-on.
3) Shraddha Kapoor as the unnamed femme fatale. The final plot-twist involving her was remarkable.

 
CONS –
1) The soundtrack is forgettable but who cares. The songs and dances are added just to promote the movie as a regular Bollywood movie.
