 What is it all about?

`Rokkk', coming after `Click' this week's Bollywood's scare call unfortunately has little personality of its own. With enough genre inconsistencies and plot holes to make it a textbook example of borrowing from too many divergent horror films to get anything right, the movie does injects some creepiness but that comes very late in the end bringing death to the excitement required for such flicks coming across in muted fashion.

This Rajesh Ranshinge helmed horror `Rokkk' seems to be an extension from the `Agyaat' type small screen creepy happenings and literally `Rokkk' (stops) itself from creating any screams anywhere.

The Story....of course

Anushka (Tanushree Dutta) weds an elderly man Ravi (Sachin Khedekar), who has remarried after the death of his first wife. Anushka's mother (Nishigandha Wad) refuses to accept their relationship.

Anushka and Ravi begin their journey in a beautiful home that Ravi gifts Anushka. However, strange and quirky things start happening there. Anushka tries to share her experiences with Ravi, who in turn thinks that his wife is hallucinating. They decide to move back to their earlier home, but the incidents don't seem to stop.

Anushka seeks advice from a healer (Arif Zakaria) and tries to discover the motive behind these unexplainable incidents. The story takes a turn when Anushka murders her husband and sister-in-law. Ahana (Udita Goswami) Anushka's sister begins her journey to rescue her.

What to look out for?

The movie as the recent trend in Bollywood keeps it loyalty to the Asian creep factor - fair teenage girl with dark eyes and black hair. The climax is a seat jumper. Tanushree Datta talks with her big beautiful bong eyes and does a fine job. The technical crafts elements are fine. 

What not?

In horrors sound track is also a hero but here the sound by Joshy Anthony turns villain as its loud and irritating instead of being scary.

Conclusion: `Rokkk' emerges in the end as a low-impact suspensor that sustains a certain mood but doesn't approach the full potential of its premise, its up to you, watch it if you really must.
