Pari movie reviews

Here's what the critics are saying about the horror flick featuring Anushka Sharma, Parambrata Chatterjee, Rajat Kapoor, Ritabhari Chakraborty and Mansi Multani.

Hindustan Times

Slowly, Pari starts using the same tactics as Vikram Bhatt. You’ll enter a silent space and something will cross the frame behind you. You turn and find it right behind you -- now these are shots we have been watching for years, and listening to loud background score that accompanies it. Nothing wrong till it thrills, but intrigue factor begins to diminish. Read the complete film reviewhere.

International Business Times

No, it's not that cliché reincarnation or ugly ghostly romantic stories or possessed characters. The film, in fact, looks at various elements like rain, darkness, blood, woods, eerie silence and a few gory details that make a horror film. 

Anushka Sharma is "horrific" (terrific) in the film. I couldn't have imagined anyone else playing this role. Her acting has various shades — romance, passion, the scared shy girl and the devil. Parambrata Chatterjee, who plays Anushka's love-interest, is brilliant and they can go down as one of the fresher pairs in Bollywood with their chemistry. His simple act will win your heart because he excels in every frame. Read the complete review here.

The Indian Express

Anushka Sharma plays Rukhsana with a great deal of bloody enthusiasm. You cannot accuse her of not trying hard, but the film is so poorly-written, and so scatter-brained that nothing can rescue it, not even a leading lady who is determined to do something different with her producing heft. Poor Parambrata Chatterjee is left trying to hold up the story, such as it is, and is the only one left standing. Read the complete movie reviewhere.

India Today

Bollywood heroes have a fatal weakness. They must take a random girl home, and give her shelter. It clearly doesn't matter if she has a bloodied appearance, or has clearly a million issues, (like huddling under the bed when seeing incense sticks, or cutting nails with a knife), or looks possessed most of the time. And, that's exactly what Arnab does. Despite all the signs screaming at him to call for help, he goes out of his way to help her, and seems to chide her gently with a "Paagal ho kya?" whenever she does something absolutely outrageous. There's even a strange love triangle involved, which one can't help snickering at. Read the complete film reviewhere.
