“Machhli Jal Ki Rani Hai is a tedious horror film which doesn't scare or thrill. Its predictability is its biggest undoing. This fish is stale, avoid it.”

Review Machhli Jal Ki Rani Hai & earn 20 DM Points.*

A horror film is done to death, pun intended, in many ways on the big screen. So a lot of making a good horror film is all about reinventing the wheel, innovatively. Or at the basic minimum doing the done thing sincerely. Machchli jal ki rani hai does none of it. In fact, it does nothing. The most horrifying thing about this film is that it is not in the least spooky, and is capable of giving Raagini mms2 a run for its money in mediocrity.

Swara Bhaskar plays Ayesha, a married mother of a kid who is pushed into depression when a car accident involving her gets a girl dead. The family shifts when Uday her husband gets a new job in Jabalpur where settling into a new house sees Ayesha feeling the presence and then acting bizzare. Needless to say there is a possession that happens and a mystery is solved, which i would not spill the beans about just so you want to actually not heed my advice and go watch this.

The chills and thrills, which need to be the main criterion here, are pathetically 80's standard. The make up is interestingly cheap, to the point of making you laugh. You would, but the sight of watching a gifted actress like Swara get wasted in a film like this bears heavy on the mind. She is left to scream shout and shriek, mouth inane lines. She does try hard, but with everyone else sleepwalking, there is only that much she could have done.

There is very little that is not predictable in this film, very little that actually scared you. Small horror attempts like these actually harm those rare good small films that have a potential to become our own PA series. Stay clear, stay safe.
