“Vikram Bhatt’s brand of horror needs a fix, 1921 is yet another example”
1921 is a 134 minute long movie. It is probably the most lengthy role that Zareen Khan has ever got in her entire career and probably the one in which she has exposed herself the least. This is also Karan Kundra's first role of importance that I saw on big screen. Beyond these trivia facts there is nothing else in the movie. Vikram Bhatt makes a small fleeting appearance in the opening scene.
The ghost is as scary as the ghost that you will find in the scary/horror house across shopping malls in India. There is a story which has pretentions of suspense,jealousy,crime of passion etc all mixed into one story.
It has a oh-am-so-glamarous vamp in a blink-and-you-miss-me role , the lady is also a text book case of over acting.
In the entire movie Karan Kundra has the expression on his face which people have when they come to a Chinese restaurant for the first time and go through a eight page menu and cannot figure out which dish to order, the part confused part scowling look.
Zareen Khan is a blessed lady in this movie she can see ghosts. Wish if we she could use those supernatural powers to find the director some content too for this movie.
The horror scenes are epic funny - for example Zareen Khan peeps into a cardboard box and the ghost sitting inside says -surprise.
You feel sorry for two guys after watching the movie - one who sang sun le zara and the other who composed music for it. It is like someone placing a well cooked cake right in the centre of a garbage dump.
