Movie: Aatma

Director: Supern Verma

Cast:  Bipasha Basu, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Shernaz Patel and Doyel Dhawan

Jagran Rating: Average

Story Line: Aatma is a little different from others stereotypical horror movies which deal with supernatural powers. It is freshly baked horror film which sometimes sends shiver down spines. This horror flick shows you true motherly affection which is trying to defeat evil soul. Story revolves around Maya (Bipasha Basu), a single mother that has managed to escape the cycle of abuses from her husband (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) after his death. Her sense of peace is shattered when she begins to discover that her husband possesses their daughter (Doyel Dhawan) with the intent of causing the child's death and taking her with him to his own world.  Well, the question is that, will the powerful and invincible evil Abhay have his way or will Maya’s motherly love win over the evil?

Thumbs Up: The actors, on their part, have done whatever they could to make the movie appealing. A special word of praise for Nawazuddin Siddique – he plays the part of a demoniac soul like a pro but he looks equally vicious and real as a man hurling domestic abuses on his wife. Bipasha’s best moment in the film comes during the climax. Baby Doyel looks promising as a child artist.  Film will find good audience for sure over the weekend as there is not much competition with lackluster releases like "Sona Spa" and "Rangrezz" clashing on the same day.

Thumbs Down: Aatma is not quite terrifying as writer-director Supern wants it to be. Music is really disappointing except ‘Aaja Nindiya’ a lullaby. You get shocked by some of its scenes but overall its one time watch.

If you want to get goose bumps and get terrified, book your ticket write now. Aatma is only for people who love watching horror experience on 70 mm.
