Critics' review: Ek Thi Daayan is a blend of horror, psycho thriller
A magician (Emraan) with a disturbing past is haunted by a mysterious daayan (witch). Singing Punjabi songs, making out in tents, he is happily in love with his wife (Huma), when a suspicious Lisa Dutt (Kalki) enters his life.
Kannan Iyer's directorial debut is all set to rush his journey towards success on the the new path. Kannan's storytelling is lucid and graspable. Based on Mukul Sharma's short story, Ek Thi Daayan, is getting mixed reviews.
There is little to complain about the screenplay, direction and acting in Ek Thi Daayan, it seems. The film is an apt adaptation of old-school, native folklores of witches and witchcraft. Ek Thi Daayan is a cult horror film, claim the makers. The second half, however, is being criticized. Now, as critics review begin to pour in, we bring you an insight into the movie. READ ALL REVIEWS
