Haunted - movie review

Haunted 3D is stated to be India’s first stereoscopic 3D horror film directed and produced by Vikram Bhatt.

Set in the misty mountains of Koti, Haunted 3D revolves around the sprawling Glen Manor, a mansion with a secret past and a haunted present. Haunted movie review…

The protagonist, Rehan (Mahakshay Chakraborty) visits Glen Manor to complete its sale, which his father had initiated.

The mansion is being sold within few days, and there has been the death of the caretaker a some days ago. Rehan’s father suspects something wrong so he is sent to Koti to settle the issue.

But he realizes that certain mysterious occurrences in the manor may jeopardize the sale. However when he investigates these inexplicable happenings he discovers a secret — and falls in love with it!

Some mystifying things occur on Rehan’s very first night inside the mansion. He is curious to know about this haunted mansion’s history but his actions prove futile.

Rehan experiences weird things like flickering lights, screeching doors, a dangling corpse and jarring screams by spirits.

One day, a book drops from the bookshelf which carried a letter written in 1936 by Meera (Tia Bajpai), mentioning her troubles when her parents left for Delhi and so she is being left alone with her nanny (Achint Kaur), a servant and a driver.

Meera’s despair makes Rehan feel sympathetic and then he tries to help Meera’s spirit which is still trapped in the house. Rehan also gets the help of a psychic to clear out the mansion, but the lady runs away from her duties after she realizes that another evil spirit is torturing Meera’s spirit and will not let the poor girls spirit to go free.

The psychic also warns Rehan about the dangers lurking around, but he ignores the warning and has a face a turbulent encounter with the evil spirit the same night.

When a ragpicker notices that Rehan genuinely wants to help the poor soul’s spirit, he casts a spell and sends Rehan to 80 years back in time to change the fate.

What he does not bargain for is that the secret brings him face to face with the biggest challenge of his life…. How can he save her when she is already dead?

The newcomers Tia Bajpai and Mahakshay Chakraborty who is in his second film after Jimmy, have enacted their parts well. Arif Zakaria as the evil spirit is horrifying, while Mohan Kapoor, Sanjay Sharma and Achint Kaur are fine in their roles in Haunted.
