Not again the same old melodramatic Ramsay type of horror, not again the same old ghissi pitti fraud baba and tantric baba ki kahani, not again the same that cheap acting, not again not again not again…
Swaha is being directed by Manoj Sharma, who has directed only one film till now, don’t know what film, “Sparsh – The Touch”, might be some B-Grade film but can’t believe that such a good talented actor Kunal Kapoor was in the film, might be in those days Kunal was in bad era. Amyways, now a day’s more of Ramsay kind of film is being adapted and being shown to us, “Rokk” starring Udita Goswami and Tanushree Dutta, was the another example of it. But still no one can compete and also not even compare Ramsay’s film.
The story starts with the great image shown of some fraud baba, played by Ishrat Ali, where not only the general public but the great businessman and ministers were coming in their Ashram for his blessings. Similarly there was one business tycoon named Oberoi who was a complete devotee of that baba, he recently shifted in a new bungalow, and requested that baba to visit their home and bless it. Baba came, but experienced very unusual things. From that day onwards not only baba, but Oberoi was too facing many hiccups in his family, business, social and in personal life. Suddenly that baba met with an accident and died on the spot, by this news Oberoi also got heart attack. By experiencing all this Oberoi’s son “Rikkie”, who doesn’t believe in this blind faith in baba or in black magic or something, decided to find out the real truth behind all this incidents and unusual things which is being going on at his house.
Through it was a strongly melodramatic kind of horror film, but still till about first one hour, the movie was little bit of interesting and I was started in liking this film. But it was the whole torture of near about 3hrs of movie. The script and the story were too long, and many unwanted scenes and songs were just dragging the film.
Though as far as concerned with direction, Manoj Sharma has done some fairly Ok job compared to his level and work level experience. In his career he has directed just one film, that too non horror, and so this horror kind of film was pretty much a good challenge for him, and he has done it fairly ok. But the minus points were many, like unnecessary zoom in and zoom out, funny made up horror scenes, and so on.
The story was being written by Praveen Bharadwaj and Manoj Sharma, but was written very bad indeed than direction. Many unnecessary scenes and songs were dragging the film, and poorly written dialogues became funny throughout the movie.
Performances were bad, only likable performances were of the character who was playing as Oberoi and of Ishrat Ali, but only as compared to all. Rest all were as bad as if I am watching some C Grade TV serial, that too for long three hours. Songs were ok and background music was also ok as related to the scenes and overall film.
Please don’t watch it!
