Raaz 2 Movie Review

Horror films in Bollywood are few and far in between but this decade most have worked at the box-office. Phoonk was RGV’s biggest success in a long time and ditto for Vikram Bhatt who was at an all time career low when 1920 released and did reasonably well, last year.

Raaz – The Mystery continues directed by Mohit Suri is not a sequel to Raaz, but a different story that belongs to the Raaz series. The comparisons are inevitable, as Raaz starring Bipasha Basu and Dino Morea is the biggest Bollywood hit ever in the horror genre.

So with expectations quite high, director Mohit Suri (Woh Lamhe, Zeher), Emraan Hashmi, Kangana Ranaut and Adhyayan Suman (son of Shekar Suman) promise to scare us with Raaz – The mystery continues. Do they succeed? Read the review..

For starters the story is filled with hair raising sequences, so if the horror genre is not something that you enjoy watching, give this a skip. The background music at times manages to scare the hell out of you. Movies like Phoonk and 1920 couldn’t scare me, but Raaz 2 at times did, especially some of the scenes involving Kangana! Talking of the scenes that cause quite a bit of Adrenaline Rush, there are two scenes that stand out. One at the New year party and the other involving Kangana, Emraan and the bulls!

Its one of those scripts which requires a director with skill and Mohit Suri has proved time and again that he is one of the most underrated directors in the industry. Apart from the last 30 mins of the film which isn’t very convincing, which is mainly due to flaws in the script, Mohit’s direction is top notch. Amongst the flaws, apart from the climax which doesn’t live upto expectations, the pace of Raaz 2 is quite slow.

The music like most Vishesh Films, is great. Soniyo is the best, followed by Tu Aaja Mere Maahi.

Performances are good. Adhyayan Suman on debut (by not taking the forgettable Haal-e-dil into consideration) is pretty good in the second half and has a good screen presence, huge scope for improvement though. But the film belongs to Emraan Hashmi and Kangana Ranaut. Both the seasoned actors are brilliantly expressive, a key to any good performance.

Overall, Raaz The Mystery Continues is a good horror film with good direction, fantastic performances and great music. Go with limited expectations and your sure to enjoy the film.

Rating: ★★★½☆ (Worth the price of your ticket.)

Other Notes – Raaz 2 or Raaz TMC should do well at the box-office as Chandni Chowk To China has had a big fall! The collections have completely crashed during the weekdays.

The review of Slumdog Millionaire will be up tomorrow. Do check back.

  • Raaz 2 is a good movie to watch…It has all the credentials for the audience to enjoy….I always watch Emran hashmi movies just coz he has his own style, he will never someone and most importantly all songs will be good in all his movies…….say it Aashiq banaya aapne,zehar,The killer,Aawarapan, Jannat to name a few…..

    Movie is worth watching….and this is the first movie i guess where he did not kissed a girl!!! ;)

    go n watch….

  • Great movie friends.
    it will surely scare u but the story of this film in last 15 minutes is not heart touching.
    as usual emraan hashmi’s all songs r worth to listen.
    overall it’s a nice paisa vasool movie.
    i will give it 3 and 1/2 star out of 5.

  • Indicine Team: The comment posted at 2.50am on this page is a fake one.. I didn’t post it, the last line says: (your are fit for CC2C type movies)

    And Linjo, Priya, Sudeep: Don’t be very happy you young boys and girls of this new generation.. if u all will continue loving the worst of the worst movies which people would spit on them, such a trash like cc2c and only because Akshay Kumar is the hero of the movie.. then you’re ruining your bollywood for sure.. you ppl are like those who love the banana peal.. but don’t like the banana itself!

    And why don’t u get out of this website, why don’t u stop posting and praising some crap movies just to encourage ppl watching it?! I won’t be surprised that you have been paid some money to do all this.. to promote for some kachra movies, just to win at the box office.

    People out there: don’t believe these ppl and don’t waste your money watching a movie like cc2c.. you’d better save your money for a movie like Raaz2 or slumdog millionaire.. cc2c doesn’t deserve even 10 minutes of your timiing.. it’s not a fun at all.. it’s only a Tom & Jerry cartoon movie.

  • AJ: if u love the cartoon Tom & Jerry ( as Akshay Kumar does) therefore all his movies are inspired from Tom & Jerry catoons ( he mentioned this during an interview with him on NDTV, and I mentioned this under the movie review) others don’t enjoy cartoons.. cartoons are for kids.. and if your age is below 20, then no wonder why u love Tom & Jerry.. I used to love it too when I was very young but not anymore.

    Ofcourse I’ve to advice ppl not to watch it, it’s not even worth to watch on a free dvd or online, if you don’t like some crap movies even if u get a free disk, you won’t watch it.. you’ll dump it in the trash.

    And I’m saying what’s the truth and not lies!! the movie is bad.. the critics slammed it.. the distributers were crying.. the box office suffered.. and Akshay Kumar himself admitted that the movie is bad.. so how can u ppl say something opposite.. that it’s a good one?!!!!!!

  • Indicine Team: Will you please try to stop this crazy guy or a crazy woman who got nothing to do on this website except posting comments under my name?!! ( they already did with other guys.. I think with Ahsan Khan and someone and created for them some problems) They are posting comments to Raj, under my name, as they know that we don’t communicate now or reply to each other.. so this means that they’re some old members here ( I can’t accuse anyone.. I might be wrong in my accusation) and Raj too believed that I posted the above comment! therefore he’s saying again bad words.

    The comment at 6:13am is a fake one too.. which says in the last line, in block letters: HOW DARE YOU USE MY NAME…..

    Please delete it, thanks..

  • I haven’t seen this movie yet, but I don’t know if its going to be as good or not, from the trailers it doesn’t look as scary as the first raaz, and I have watched the first one, and it was really scary, and I’m not sure what this one is going to be like with emraan hashmi and kangana, I don’t like either of them much in terms of acting but still I’ll go and see, I’m sure it should be good for time pass. I’ll let you all know later.
