Mallika - Movie Review

Ramsay Redux!
By Aparajita Ghosh

Even the ghosts know by now that Bollywood filmmakers are horrifyingly out of new ideas and tricks to scare the audiences. Director Wilson Louis, unable to come up with something fresh, rehashes the already tried, tested and dead ideas and gives them a new garb in his horror flick Mallika, which introduces Sheena Nayyar in Bollywood.

She plays Sanjana who is troubled by the nightmares of a murder that once took place in the house she’s living in. To escape from these nerve-wracking visions, she packs her bags and goes for a vacation to - of all places - an old fort that would look haunted even to the half blind.

Inside the fort are a bunch of assorted characters like Saahil (Sameer Dattani) who is doing a research on the fort, Vikram (Himanshu Mallik) the caretaker of the fort, his wife Maya (Pooja Ballutia), an oversexed photographer (Arjun Mahajan) and a police inspector (Suresh Menon).

Turns out that the fort too is haunted by an evil spirit and there’s an allusion to a mysterious woman named Mallika who has something to do with Sanjana.

Even those who are faint of heart would scarcely be scared by the spooky moments in the film. The chalk-faced spectre, with rumpled hair, popped-out eyes is a direct throwback to the films of the Ramsay brothers. And the sights of the spirit swinging on a jhoola, or levitating to the ceiling don’t exactly send you cringing in your seat.

Performances aren’t anything to write about. Sameer Dattani does try to bring some credibility to his character but is let down by a clichéd script and untalented co-stars. Sheena Nayyar is hot but shows little promise in acting department.

The special effects in the film are good but the background music is too loud.

Mallika has just a few scares to offer, unless you consider the sight of Sheena getting wet in a bikini scary.
