Critics Review

The critics did not seem to be happy about the reboot Surabhi Redkar of Koimoi said “The first half establishes the mystery well enough, but the pre-interval twist is a huge give away of what lays ahead. A boring second half with the cat and mouse chase between people trying to contain the spirit is a complete yawn fest. Supernatural thrillers are not everyone’s cup of tea and its high time Bhatt realizes that he has lost his mojo. Raaz Reboot is a classic fail at coming even little close to scaring you. I need to reboot my memory to have watched this!”

Review by Tatsam Mukherjee on India today stated “Raaz Reboot might still go on to make money, like its predecessors in the franchise. But do we as the Indian audience needs to assault with such banal, comical horror every single time the Bhatts have some money to make a film? Nope. So if you still go ahead and spend money on a movie like this, you DESERVE more movies like these. And thou shalt not complain about the poor state of horror movies in India. Thou absolutely shalt not.”

Final Verdict

Finally, we have to say there is nothing new in this horror movie, same storyline, romance and horror sound score. All these elements are tried and tested formulas for Bollywood horror films. So, all-in-all if you like Bollywood horror flicks, then you can try out Raaz Reboot this weekend.
