Critics report: Raaz 3 gets mixed reviews
The first half of Raaz 3 is not bad. Talking about the horror part in the film, we definitely aren't scared to death. Bipasha Basu steals the show left, right and center as Shanaya; Emraan and Esha are average, say critics.Updated: Sep 08, 2012 11:48 IST
"When it comes to Emraan Hashmi, the Bhatts have yet again given this serial kisser the golden chance to get onto to bed with the two hotties! Well, jokes aside...Emraan does justice to his role. But, unfortunately, he gets overshadowed by Bipasha's strong act and larger than life screen presence. Esha Gupta is average, not as brilliant as Bips. She is more a 'zinda laash' in the movie and badly lacks some good expressions," adds the website.
"On the whole, Raaz 3 is a story of staunch Indian beliefs and convictions in conjunction with a lethal combo of sex and horror in 3D, competent performances, an engaging human drama and most significantly, there's a gigantic brand value attached to it, which has worked extraordinarily well with the masses in the past. With this film, Vikram Bhatt raises the bar for horror films formulated on the home turf. If you are an enthusiast of supernatural thrillers/horror movies, Raaz 3 should be on your list of 'things to do and watch' this weekend. Go, get ready to be spooked!" says Adarsh.
"From being transported to a parallel universe to finding the 'chosen one' for the job, this film is quite like 'The Matrix'. Only difference, here you need both the pills. The first- to go down the Bhatt hole and the second for the ensuing headache," says Guha.
"On the whole, Bipasha Basu is both hero and a villain in the movie. She not only breathes life into her own character, but, also does a bravado act by carrying the entire movie on her own shoulders. This time, Bips has given a serious chase for money to the other B-Town beauties, with her smashing performance. So, watch Raaz 3 for Bips!" says OneIndia.
“Raaz 3 is neither scary nor thrilling. This is a nothing film — one that will leave you cold afterwards and one that you will forget before you even get home," concludes Jamkhandikar.
