The accomplishment of Raaz 12 years prior introduced a time of a mutant classification: The Musical Horror. Separated from Broadway or unless your name is Tim Burton, I don’t perceive how these two totally unrelated classifications might be joined successfully, which is the reason one is hard pressed to recollect a quality spine-chilling Hindi flick since Ramgopal Varma’s Bhoot.
The hold up proceeds with this film. 3 AM is the satanic hour when spirits chill between our reality and theirs, transforming into human-expending threats (phantoms).

Frightening in this present reality yet inconceivable in Bollywood, it is distressfully lost here; they’re always babbling to cams, themselves and even boisterously difficult Ghost of (dead factory holder) Rudra Pratap Past.
