STORY IN SHORT: Raaz 3 is an upcoming horror film which stars Bipasha Basu, Esha Gupta and Emraan Hashmi in the lead role. Maithli (Bipasha Basu), an actress is at the peak of success. She is a kind of actress who gets the best roles and wins all the awards she's nominated for. Maithli is in a relationship with a director named Aditya (Emraan Hashmi) but the relationship ends when a younger actress, Sanjana (Esha Gupta) makes her film debut. The charm of Sanjana overshadows Maithli. Suddenly, she seems to be forgotten and everybody only wants to work with Sanjana. Maithli sees her career fading away and gradually turns to black magic. She decides to destroy Sanjana and get back to Aditya.
The original choice for the role of Sanjana was Jacqueline Fernandes but she did not want to establish herself as a sex symbol, hence she opted out.
TRAILER: The trailer of the film is just amazing! It has everything from love, romance to horror. The film has good potential to scare its audience and will definitely be popular amongst fans of Bipasha as she looks great in the trailer with a superb portrayal of her character.
Music of RAAZ series has always been well known and its music has been the plus point of the film but as far as RAAZ 3 is concerned it seems music has taken a back seat. Let’s have a look at the album:
DEEWANA KAR RAHA HAI by Javed Ali is a simple track with nothing special to it. The lyrics and the music are ordinary; it has an Arabic feel to it. ZINDAGI SE by Shafqat Amanat Ali is a song that will captivate you but for a very little time as it lacks the potential to engage the listeners. RAFTA RAFTA is a good track altogether, it has peaceful music and captivating voice of KK which adds value to the song. It’s worth listening. OH MY LOVE is a really good song with great composition. Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal have done a great job here. The chorus in the song is attractive too. KYA KARZ HAI by Shreya Ghoshal and Zubben Garg is a decent song, the music is good but the song remains simple overall. KHAYALON MEIN by Shreya Ghoshal is enchanting song and will definitely win the hearts of many. Shreya with her melodious voice makes it more enthralling. Thus the music album of RAAZ 3 though not great, gradually manages to pull up. The songs of the movie may not be remembered, the way, the songs of its prequels are remembered.
BOX OFFICE PREDICTIONS: Since people have already tasted RAAZ series, so they actually know what the films of Vikram Bhatt have to offer. This is a known fact that RAAZ franchise has a set of loyal audience who will definitely welcome the movie. Since the franchise is a combination of horror and romance, it attracts more audience and this time we have actors like Emraan Hashmi and Bipasha Basu (who has been a part of the film earlier also) who are quite prominent and bring along their fan following too. Esha Gupta too has already proved her mettle in JANNAT 2. Thus it is sure that film will offer a great bundle of talented actors. The story too seems to be interesting. Chances of RAAZ 3 scoring big are much higher. Even if go by the history of RAAZ series, RAAZ 3 has a fair chance of shaking up the box-office.
RECCOMENDATIONS: RAAZ 3 has many things to offer and it looks promising too. A definite watch for those who love RAAZ franchise!
