    Before the release of this movie RGV had claimed that whoever watches this movie alone would be awarded 5 Lakhs. After watcing this movie my recomendation is that no one should watch this movie alone you will die laughing , RGV has made scarier movies than this one.
    The movie has nothing new to say. The same haunted house, a servant , driver, superstition , science and what not. RGV missed the bus this time his BHOOt was far superior. The first half does have one or two edge of the seat scenes but the second half was just not scary. RGVs conclusion at the ... » read more

    "Bhagoo RGV aaya..."

    Whenever we talk of Indian Horror Films two names comes in our mind, Ramsay brothers and Ram Gopal Varma. The former known for B-Grade Stuff and later known for making Horror movies with A grade actors. But in horror there are many tracks, like in case of this movie its Black Magic. We have seen hardly movies based on this theme, like Padmini Kholapure's "Gehrayee" and Victor Banerjee's "Ho Sakta Hai". We can find many references from these movies in "Phoonk", a so called first Indian movie based on Black Magic [As said by makers].

    When we watch a comedy or tragedy (movie), if its good we do not hesitate to admit that the movie made us laugh or sob. But do we that easily admit that we are scared.......
    Actually, before watching the movie, I was going through reviews and definitely was not impressed. At that point of time a parallel thought was running in my mind which I mentioned above.
    However, after watching the movie I must say you can not really rate it as a "horror" movie that makes you sacred actually.
    The basic elements which RGV used (soft toys from some weird angles, mystic ... » read more

    Unfortunately this seems to be another RGV movie which is below average compared to the taleent that he has! The basic horror element seems to be missing in the movie...When you see genuine horror movies like 'The Ring' , you can feel your heart pounding and you are always in fear of what next is going to come on the screen...not in 'Phoonk'...RGV come on...we expect a better one from you next time! » read more

    Another third class product by the RGV factory that is more ERROR than terror :)

    well, if the marketeer's words to be believed then this so called 'Terrifying hit' is most likey a terrifying threat to your ears as Ramu's soundmen thought they were remaking Sound of Music just like Ramu remade the Sholay! :) » read more
