To house the biggest brands, skating circuits, the best gaming zone- The mall might not be visited by many though. There's a myth surrounding the mall. Over the period of its construction people have started labelling it as Haunted Mall. The legend has it that the mall is haunted with the presence of a 'chudail'. Some say its a typical white saree white hair ghost, others say its a woman with overturned feet. The fact is no one has seen the presence. Yet the fear is unquestionable.On the opening eve the owner of the mall, Mr. Manchanda calls a press conference and to dispel the fears announces that he would spend a night at the Mall with the board of directors. The news is flashed around town. Manchanda and his cronies step into the Mall to spend a night and this to Manchanda is a big business strategy.

Darr @ the Mall Review - No – Darr At The MallFeb 21, 2014NewsFear is a difficult emotion to project on screen. At its worst it makes one laugh more than being scared. It is not easy to scare people but Pavan Kirpalani made an assured debut with Ragini MMS. One of the rare Hindi horror film that I liked in recent times. But, with this film he falls prey to the clichés of horror movies especially the Hindi ones. It might be a good idea to set a horror film in a mall but, then what you do with it is another horror story. Jimmy Shergill arrives at this mall to apply for a job of a security head. The mall is gearing up for inauguration, amidst rumors of it being haunted, due to certain unexplained deaths since its construction. The night of the inauguration turns into a nightmare, for the people and their families associated with the mall. The film is too long for a horror film, and takes its own sweet time to reach the interval point. Unnecessary characters are introduced, with none of the characters standing out. There are no scares that work and post interval it just becomes a scream fest. Even the deaths are not done innovatively. It’s like, after thinking of the idea of setting the story in the mall the director was lost in trying to write in good scenes around it. Even the back story is a lazy attempt at justifying the haunting. To give the film its due credit, technically it’s a very sound film. Shot well with a decent background score but, that is all there is to it. Word of mouth – Darr at the mall is yet another horror film that fails to up the scare quotient. Rating - ** (not worth it)   Ticket meter – worth 100 bucksRony D'costa Darr @ the Mall Review - No – Darr At The Mall Feb 21, 2014
