PHOBIA - Hindi movie review

Rating: ****

Radhika Apte is definitely one of the most under rated actresses in Bollywood. While in some other film she comes up as the glamorous doll, and maybe in the next, she is just the typical girl next door. This film needs to be appreciated for the courageous performance by Radhika Apte.
Phobia has number of firsts to its credit. Besides being one-of-a-kind psychological thriller, the makers have incorporated Virtual Reality technology, a first for a Bollywood film.
The central character, Mehak (Radhika Apte), an artist by profession, who suffers from agoraphobia, can be seen using a VR set in the movie.
Probably, this year’s creepiest psychological thriller is about an artist who visualizes violent and negative incidents which have no connection whatsoever.

FREDRICK - Movie Review

Rating: ***
An intriguing story line with deftly guarded suspense which keeps one on the edge of the seat.
The story begins with a 16 year old boy, who seems just like all other guys , except than that his bonding was unusual with another boy of his age. This bonding was highly objectionable to his father and he has reacted violent on that another guy.
One fateful day few unfortunate events take place and this creates the platform for the story to grow further.
Then it takes a leap of 19 Years and shifts to the picturesque Mussoorie. In the breathtakingly gorgeous valleys and beautifully draped snow covered mountains of Mussoorie, a dark unknown shadow has cast a web of Human trafficking, whom nobody knows and no one has seen.
The suspended Intelligence Bureau agent Vikram (Avinash Dhyani) gets to know that sister who had gone to Mussoorie is missing.

Genre: Family   Recommended: General Audience   Released: 29 April 2016
