Roohi Movie Review

roohi movie

ROOHI is a good film to watch. Director Hardik Mehta’s direction is average at best. On the plus side, he handles some scenes with élan. Also, he sets the mood right, especially in the horror scenes. 

Even the various towns shown in the film are uniquely depicted. For instance, the bizarre bride kidnapping custom in Baagadpur, the spooky hills of Ambiyapur and the practice of desi exorcism in Chimmatipur add to the film’s novelty. On the flipside, the climax is disappointing. 

The film also ends on an abrupt note. One hopes that the makers would provide some backstory about Roohi’s past but that never happens. 

The same route was also followed in STREE [2018], where the mysterious girl’s (Shraddha Kapoor) track ends on a cliffhanger. In the case of ROOHI, it doesn’t make the same impact as STREE. 

Also, here the goings-on are rather confusing and the dialect is difficult to understand. Several dialogues are sure to go bouncer for many viewers. Additionally, the film has a few logic gaps too. But overall, ROOHI is a good film to watch.
