Rokkk - Movie Review

Runnn from Rokkk

We’ve all seen it before in one film or another. A haunted house, blood dripping down from ceiling, windows pushed open by strong gusts of wind, lights going off at most unexpected moments, the swing in the garden moving on its own, possessed women in possession of sharp objects (read knives and stilettos) and scary looking tantrics with their gobbledegook about evil spirits and exorcism. So what does director Rajesh Ranshinge’s horror film Rokkk offer that’s new. Pretty little.

Anushka (Tanushree Dutta) marries a widower Ravi (Sachin Khedekar) against her mother’s wishes. Just when the duo is about celebrate a year of their married life in a new house in Goa, the nightmare begins. Turns out the house is haunted and the evildoer behind inexplicable events is no older than a little girl. Haunted by the girl’s ghost, Anushka approaches a healer who tells her that the house is cursed and there is a definite link to Ravi’s dead wife. Things then take a turn when Ravi is murdered and the blame squarely falls on Anushka who’s then sent to a mental asylum to gain her sanity back. But the ghost follows her there. Anushka just about manages to flee.

Enters Anushka’s sister Ahana (Udita Goswami) who, with the help of an inspector (Shaad Randhawa) tries to unearth the mystery behind the haunted house and save her sister, and later on herself, from the evil spirit.

‘Rokkk’ starts off pretty ordinarily but takes a slight spooky turn when the girl begins to make her presence felt in the house. Tanushree gives off credible wide-eyed expressions while Arif Zakaria doesn’t really fit in the role of a healer. Udita Goswami and Shaad Randhawa dominate the proceedings in the second half but sadly none of them make an impression. The background score isn’t eerily different from any other run-of-the-mill horror flick. Most disappointing is the end, when the unravelled mystery (through a black book) leaves you with a dropped jaw.

The director shrewdly leaves an opening for a sequel which I doubt will ever be made.

Rating: 1.5 / 5
Oscars to create history this year!
