“1920 ends up being an unintentional comedy rather than a horror.”
: 1920, 1920 evil returns were passable movies that were cheesy and guilty pleasures through and through. The third in the series , 1920 London however is neither. Hardly scary , mind numbingly flat and disastrously long, the only thing that died with this movie is the franchise, hopefully for good.
Meera chopra is a young bride whose husband is possessed by black magic. Her only saviour is her ex lover whom she had wrongfully convicted. Taking him to London to cure her possessed husband she discovers the ex is not as nice as he was and that there is more to the black magic in her life. All good, except for the fact that the film tells this story in a manner so excruciatingly bad that you wish you were dead.
Meera Chopra has a single expression throughout the film, that of a damsel in distress lost in this world of mantras and possessed lockets. She does not , in all her turmoil and pain, forget to wear the perfect ensemble head to toe each time she appears on screen. Of course her excuse of playing a royalty comes handy.
Sharman joshi tries hard to convince us , and perhaps himself, that this is a venture worth the while. And fails. He is uncomfortable mourning inane mumbo jumbo in the name of mantras and faking shock and surprise at seeing the CGI ghost.
There is a new comer with dimples as the husband. His dimples make an impact.
The story flounders it's way, plodding through like a dead horse , trying to infuse some life into scenes enacted badly . inaccuracies range from simple dubbung issues ( at one point Meera mouths main Kar dungi and we hear hum Kar denge) to gaping plot holes and inconsisitencies with the period and time, everything is a mistake.
The only hilarious part is the firang doctor and his expression when he is demonstrated the power of a ghost in his hospital. That alone is worth the ticket money. Then again I find happiness anywhere. So be your own judge won't you.
