Pari not a fairy tale is a good hindi horror movie. It reminded me another good supernatural horror movie ‘Ek Thi Daayan”. Though it didn’t have jump scare, it did give me some creeps and stayed on my mind for sometime after completing it. This is Anushka Sharma’s best performance to date, so no doubt that she backed this script and ended becoming a producer of this movie. Also Parambrata Chatterjee played his role very well, giving good support to Anushka’s character.
Though this is the first movie of the director Prosit Roy, he has done fairly good job with bringing the story to the screen. The other two characters that stand out in the movie are : Piyali played well by Ritabhari Chakraborty, she is the fiancée of the lead character in this movie and also Rajat Kapoor who plays a different kind of a role Professor Quasim Ali who is after people who aren’t normal human beings like Pari.
Though I have read so many bad reviews about this movie, I personally felt that it isn’t so bad to be rated 1.5 stars. At least Anushka’s wonderful performance deserves more than that. However, I do feel that this movie is not for everyone. It might not be so creepy, but Anushka’s performance does gives one some creeps. Also I remembered Ezra Malayalam supernatural horror movie. That is one well made horror movie.
This one is a good supernatural horror movie which you could watch, if you haven’t seen it yet. Maybe, it could have been made better or it is fine as it is? You can judge for yourself after watching it. I felt that it was done well. However, the conclusion wasn’t as expected. This could have been like Omen series.
