Ek Thi Daayaan Movie Review – Get ready to chill your spine!

Blackmagic, witchcraft, performing spells are no longer a taboo, at least with the Bollywood flicks of today. Movies such as Talaash, and Raaz3 have been piping up with horror and Ek Thi Daayaan stands out nothing different. Director Kannan Iyer has put all his efforts into the best of his makings and so it is with Ek Thi Daayaan as well.

The cast 
If you are the types that covet horror chilling down your spine and wish every little nerve and swerve of your body get the horrific impact, then Ek Thi Daayaan is a sure treat. Revolving around the tale of a witch, the movie features Emraan Hashmi, Konkana Sen, Huma Quereshi, and Kalki Koechlin in the lead roles.
The treat

Emraan Hashmi is pictured as Bobo, India’s leading magician. Tamara, his girlfriend is played by Huma Quereshi, who least knows about Bobo being a magician. With days passing by, Bobo is psychotically affected and feels his life broke. His hallucinations being to haunt him and he seeks the aid of a psychiatrist. 

Hypnosis of his past reveals a tattering childhood, where the sinister Daayan shatters his family and threatens to haunt Bobo. He chooses to leave apart his past and move ahead with his career. With time, his life improves with Tamara coming in, and the breaking point is where Lisa (Kalki Koechlin) marks her entry.

Are they his hallucinations or tantras played by Daayan? Bobo is under complete confusion and terrible psychotic pressure. In a few instances, Bobo is extremely hallucinated that we might feel he is losing out on his mind. There are few extremely scary moments in the movie that runs high on your senses, of course making your Goosebumps stand high.

Emraan Hashmi seems to skin his character well and play a convincing role. The attributes of a magician are impregnated well and audiences are seemingly okay with it. Huma is as stunning as ever, while Konkana plays a dynamic role and stands high amongst the rest of the characters. Kalki’s role is quite flimsy, seeping in every now and then and it is quite sure that her role is disappointing.

If you have a flair for the horror types and wish to quiver and shiver with fear in a three-hour entertainment, Ek Thi Daayan is the right flick to choose. Personally, I have Ek Thi Daayan lined up in my favorites of horror films. Ek Thi Daayan — a likeable horror not to miss.
