Phoonk 2, movie review
Fear is such a strong emotion that it defies all logic. Phoonk 2 justifies that. As small children we are scared of entering a dark room; somewhere further in life, we rather try and avoid isolated roads with no street lights. Whenever we shift into an apartment, the newness and emptiness of the place intrigues us in a strange manner. Infact we always fear the unknown. It is not just ghosts that we are scared of but there are times in our lives when a strange and inexplicable incident also scares the hell out of us. Phoonk 2 movie review... Phoonk the first part ended with the killing of Madhu, the woman who casts a black magic spell on Rajiv's daughter Raksha.

The truth of the matter is that we have very little knowledge and understanding of life and its various mysteries. Phoonk movie review...
