'Raaz Reboot' Movie Review: Emraan Hashmi, Kriti Kharbanda And Gaurav Arora's Hidden Secrets Keep You Glued Despite Of All The Clichés!
Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Kriti Kharbanda, Gaurav Arora

Director: Vikram Bhatt

Producers: Mukesh Bhatt, Mahesh Bhatt, Vishesh Bhatt, Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar

Writer: Vikram Bhatt, Girish Dhamija (dialogues)

Claps: Despite having a standard Bollywood horror film template 'Raaz Reboot' has a few twists to keep you engaged.

Slaps: Creaking doors, blood-stained hands, CGI raven, windows opening by themselves, a possessed lady...Vikram Bhatt resorts to the same old tricks to reboot his 'spooky' franchise

What's New: Sadly nothing!

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Plot: 'Secrets are the enemy of love', that's exactly what we are told as we see Rehaan (Gaurav Arora) and his wife Shaina (Kriti Karbhanda) land in the snow-clad Romania to make it their new abode. A couple of minutes later we get a peek of their spacious home but hey, all's not well in this la la land! Shaina wants to have a baby but hubby dearest has been acting strangely lately and refuses to get intimate with her.

Later Shaina begins to have some terrible apparitions in the house right from a eyeball in the wash-basin to someone hiding under her bed. Oh wait, there is too much fuss on broken 'mangalsutra' and the death of a CGI raven! But Rehaan just brushes off Shaina's concerns as her figments of imaginations until one fine day he receives a call from her in a bruised state from a phone booth far off from their mansion. Soon Shaina gets possessed by an evil spirit. A psychometrist is consulted and in a chain of events it is revealed that in absence of Rehaan, Shaina had met her junkie ex Aditya (Emraan Hashmi) who seems to be having premonitions about Shaina's horrifying experiences and who knows everything about Rehaan's buried 'secret' that might tear apart his marriage! Will this 'Raaz' change everyone's life forever?

Performances: Emraan Hashmi fans might be in for some disappointment as the actor doesn't have much screen time. But fret not, he exactly knows how to making a lasting impressions and his transition from being a forlorn lover to a character with shades of mystery will leave you in awe.

'Raaz Reboot' is Kriti Kharbanda's debut Bollywood vehicle. It was quite bravo of Vikram Bhatt to revolve his plot around a debutante who in turn makes sure to give us enough reasons to praise her performance barring the loopholes in the script and the horrendous make-up when she is possessed.

Lastly coming to the Bhatt's new blue eyed boy Gaurav Arora who sashayed in the tinsel town with his forgetable debut 'Love Games'! He delivers honestly what his character in the script demands but he still has a long way to go when it comes to his acting skills. Good try, boy!

About the film: 'Raaz', 'Raaz: The Mystery Continues', 'Raaz 3'...the Bhatt camp finally bids goodbye to their horror franchise with their latest film 'Raaz Reboot'. Sadly there is nothing fresh in this final ode! Vikram Bhatt derives various elements from the previous three films and places them in the Land of Dracula to cook up his new flick. A classic case of 'been there, seen that' prevails here. The film has some interesting twists but the excitement doesn't last long.

Manoj Soni's cinematography perfectly captures the chilly Romania and gives it an eery touch to add more to the mystery. The editing department too have pulled off a decent job.

Further the songs are worth a hear but look forcibly placed in the film jarring the narrative.

Combo-on-offer: Romance+ Few chills.

Verdict: We give 'Raaz Reboot' CLAPS for being engaging enough for a one-time watch and giving us a few 'chills' despite of falling prey to clichés of all sorts.
