Dobaara: See Your Evil: Film Review – Illusion or Confusion?

Verdict: A horror that raised your expectations but failed to meet them.

Although Bollywood has made its mark in the global film industry, it has somehow struggled to do justice to the horror genre. When compared to Hollywood’s spine-chilling horror stories and the spectacular direction, Bollywood falls short of making you sweat and giving you the goosebumps. Unfortunately, Dobaara: See Your Evil just ends up living to its Bollywood horror counterparts. Starring the brother-sister duo, Saqib Saleem and Huma Qureshi and an official adaptation of the cult horror film, Oculus, the first look of the film made us want to rush to the theatres. Despite the interest, the film fails to keep you hooked. Based in London, the movie revolves around the Merchant family and a haunted mirror that has been purchased from an antique shop.

Dobaara: See Your Evil - Film Review - BookMyShow

Natasha Merchant (Huma Qureshi) and Kabir Merchant (Saqib Saleem) are siblings who have been separated since a decade because of Kabir being locked up in a correction centre where he is undergoing therapy for killing his father, Alex Merchant (Adil Hussain) at the age of 11. The haunted mirror caused the father to torture his wife, Lisa Merchant (Lisa Ray) which in turn led to the child committing the murder of his father. The brother and sister reunite after Kabir is proven to have been fully recovered and this time, Natasha is determined to prove to the world that this was all a trap of the possessed mirror and the family was completely innocent. She works out an organized strategy of getting rid of the mirror for good and destroying the evil spirit that resides within the mirror.

The first part of the movie is plain chaos. The audience is barged with loads of information in a haphazard manner which sometimes gets repetitive. The story fails to pick pace and you soon want to pick your phone and check social media updates instead. Talking of performances, Saqib Saleem and Adil Hussain seem to be the only saving grace in the film. Huma Qureshi, otherwise an outstanding powerhouse of talent, failed to do justice as the scared yet determined sister. However, the horror elements in the latter half of the flick are way better than the first half, had they managed to bring that fear in the beginning, the fate of the movie would have been much different.

Why You Should Watch This Movie:
