Amavas Review



Star Rating 2.0 out of 5.0

A soon to be married couple decided to visit their family’s summer house where the man is supposed to propose to his girl. Karan (Sachiin Joshi) and Ahana (Nargis Fakhri) are the couple. Except for one thing, it didn’t look like they were in love. Where Karan always looks unhappy, and Ahana overjoyed apparently for no reason.

Writing review of such a confused movie is even more difficult then actually making a film, because I am trying to find some sense in the utter nonsense.

For me, director Bhushan Patel failed to decide whether he was going to make a psycho thriller, or an actual horror movie, where you get to experience a real ghost, spirit or some kind of a supernatural creature. He ended up making both in one movie that not only dragged the storyline, also confused the audience.

Well forgive me for revealing what the director and writer might have considered an excellent climax for a horror movie, however for many like us it was more hilarious than anything to be scared of. To my actual horror, this film has given a hint of a sequel.

Can anybody please explain to me how can a ghost get into to a human body just to have sexual pleasure?

Amavas, (the night when there is no moon in the sky) only mentioned once in the film and that too towards the very end of the film and without any visual indications.

The entire first part of this movie tried hard to build climax that was not there, only the loud background score punching the fabricated tension into your head.

Amavas contains over simplified dialogues and ragged screenplay which tried extremely hard to scare you, however, many sequences are stuffed with inadvertent humour e.g. if you brush your hair at night it will invite evil spirits.

Sachiin J Joshi, never looked like a handsome young man as his teachers described him in film. He never looked romantic, nor scary enough. His half-hearted effort in copying Shah Rukh Khan famous arms spread looked disgusting.

Nargis Fakhri was wasted in this film. She was there to add some glamour but even director failed to utilise her beauty.

Ali Asgar as Gotti never brought any comic relief. Vivan Bhatena and Navneet Kaur Dhillon back the already weak supporting cast.

Bhushan Patel leaves did his every best to scare you somehow in order to make you feel it is a horror film. You might failed to find a single scene which can scare you. The screenplay can be blamed but if everything around is trying to go against you, nothing can be done to stop it. There is nothing to talk about the songs, as not a single one clicks, to make it worse the horrible background score made it more difficult to stomach.

Amavas can be termed as one of the worst horror movies. To be fair with the director I can only say that maybe we will witness more worst films in future.
