Vikram Bhatt’s horror movie 1920 doesn’t leave you zombied. But it does scare you enough to have a few sweaty, sleepless hours when you hit the bed at night.
If you think Ram Gopal Verma’s Phookh scared you to the core, here is a film which will scare you left, right and centre. Vikram Bhatt’s 1920 is the sole answer to Verma’s Phookh throwing the latter nowhere in terms of horror flicks.
The movie derives its title from the year it’s set in, when huge mansions (in present-day Yorkshire) stood tall on the suburbs of Mumbai and horse-drawn carriages plied on dusty grounds carrying dandy men in suits and women in Victorian gowns and hats. Sadly, there aren’t any buxom ladies in tight corsets here.
Vikram’s 1920 is again an answer to his movie Raaz. People, who got on the edge of their seats while watching Raaz, can be rest assured that 1920 will certainly make them jump out of their seats.
The story encircles a Hindu boy Arjun (Rajneesh Duggal) and an Angelo Indian girl Lisa (Adah Sharma).How they go against their families and get married. Arjun is an architect and is given the biggest task of his life, to pull down a huge house and reconstruct it into a big hotel. Unfortunately there is something in the house which will not allow things to happen the way he wants. A mysterious story unfolds and it is soon realized that the house is haunted. Strange and inexplicable events start taking place. Unfortunately it is something to do with the heroine and then a series of mysteries unfold in gulping them too.
The first half moves like a limping horse, supported only by audio effects as a scaring material. Common unpleasant events take place like 1000 candles getting extinguis
Plotwise, ‘1920’ doesn’t offer anything remarkably novel or nightmarish. It abounds with clichés that collage any typical horror film – a large, empty and dimly-lit mansion with huge portraits staring down ominously at its audience. Or its rich architecture that glistens through the shifting shadows. Or a lantern-carrying housekeeper with mysterious facial expressions.
hed in a flick of second, unwanted and unpleasant whispering sounds, automatic operations of gramophone, etc..
The special effects of the movie are simply amazing and can give any Hollywood’s film a run for money. Lisa climbing a 25 foot pillar backwards gives us a small portrayal of the king size special effects done. Rajneesh Duggal has done great justice to his role. Adah Sharma by her amazing performance has stunned everybody. She is for sure a promising actress and a reliable one too. As a debutant, Adah Sharma has given an amazing and outstanding performance. Anjori Alagh looks beautiful and leaves an impression in the second hour. Indraneel does well. Raj Zutshi (as the priest) is top notch. Vallabh Vyas (doctor) is as usual.
Pandit Jasraj, Asha Bhosle, Kailash Kher, etc have done great justice to the music of the film. The music is soothing to ears and has already made a place for itself in the charts.
Director, Vikram Bhatt has once again proved that he is the jack of all trades (in terms of horror flicks). The location of Yorkshire serves well to the periodic film. The castle chosen is in itself horrifying.
The music is quite evocative except the Rakhi Sawant number which stands out like a sore thumb in this sufficiently spooky tale.
Just don’t go expecting too much and there are chances that you might get some paisa-vasool scares.
