It was a holiday yesterday and decided to catch up on movies that you haven't watched for months. You check up on the movie listing and shortlist two movies both equally good. A moment of indecisiveness comes in.
You weigh the pros & cons and then make your choice. Check the movie listing timings and decide on it.
Its the D-day and you make a dash to reach the theater on time to book tickets & watch movie. However the traffic on the roads felt otherwise as you looked on the clock ticking....
The counter is filled with people in line something that never happens. You knew you were going to miss the beginning but you will wait for your turn to buy tickets. Reached the counter and tell the girl "Tumbbad, 12:20 show" You select your seats and rush inside to catch up on the movie.
As you enter the screen, the attendant stops you saying the movie has not ended and that yours starts at 12:55. You are amused thinking that they probably postponed it. Check the ticket for timings and it says 12:55.
You enter the screen hall to find it empty making you wonder it cannot be. Find your seat & take it. The movie begins and shows the title as "Lupt". I checked my ticket again and find it written on it.
The thought of leaving did come but I decided to stick and yes it was certainly not a wise decision....
Lupt is supposed to be a movie based on supernatural horror genre but it fails badly to come as one.
Its a story of a family vacation turning into a nightmare. The lead character is played by Javed Jaffrey who is troubled by images which he thinks is a figment of his imagination. His psychiatrist friend recommends taking a break to unwind.
He ends up losing his son, wife in an unexplained manner. The question arises if he can save his daughter's life...
I am at my wits end on how can Javed Jaffrey, Vijay Raaz & Niki Walia could agree to do such movie. The script of the movie is so weak that even a kid could point out the flaws.
The direction felt as if it was done scene by scene something one can easily notice. The writer and director of the movie are one & the same Prabhuraj. Makes me wonder why would anyone produce such a half baked movie.
This will not be recommended and I hope I have your sympathies for going through this difficult time and churning a movie review out of it.
