Dybbuk Review: Another Disappointment in Horror Genre From Bollywood

Dybbuk Review

Dybbuk Review: Horror films are always the weakest part of the Bollywood film Industry, So many years passed and there is only a few films which makes an impact, Recent releases of Bollywood were also not up to the mark, although most of the recent horrors like laxxmi and Durgamati were the remakes, here comes another remake in the list. Amazon Prime Video original film Dybbuk released today on the platform and here is the detailed review of the film.

The movie stars Emraan Hashmi and Nikita Dutta in the main lead roles, the film also stars Manav Kaul, Darshana Banik, and others. The film is written and directed by Jay K and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishna Kumar, and Kuman Mangat Pathak. The film is an official remake of the Malayalam film Ezra which was released in 2017.

Story

The plot of the film revolves around couple Sam Isac (Played By Hashmi) and Mahi Sood (Played By Nikita Dutta), Nikta recently had discouragement and to get over this shock, Sam and Mahi shifted to a new house, while decorating their new house Mahi brings antique Jewish box into her home and here starts the game of bone-chilling horrors and murders, what was reason behind all these things and who was behind all this, to know this you have to watch the full movie on Amazon Prime Video.

Performances

The best thing about the film is Emraan Hashmi, the year are going good for him, he has 3 releases this year, Mumbai Saga, Chehre, and now this Dybbuk, although Mumbai Saga and Chehre were flop on the box office, his performance was appreciated in both of the films. Emran Hashmi looks good here too, he is a master in Playing this kind of role and he proved it again.

Nikita Dutta and Manav Kaul were amazing too, Nikita tried all her best to put an impact on the film and she almost succeed in it, except at a few sequences, she was good throughout the film. Manav Kaul in one of the underrated actors of all time and he keeps proving his worth again and again, he was amazing in the film and his performance adds a major boost to the film, his character looks intense and it was great to watch. The rest of the actors were equally good.

Analysis

The only difference between the remake and the original is, the performance and budget is a little above in the remake as compared to the original. I am still confused why this remake  ? the film was decent at the box office and received a mixed response from the audience, i don’t know who advises making a remake on this, I have the same questions about the film Durgamati.

We had already seen the horror films on Folk, Traditions and other stuffs and Dybbuk is just another one is that list, the story is very old fashioned and very predictable, i don’t know what was special in the film, the screenplay is very much predictable and if you had watched Erza, this film is a waste.The locations were amazing and this is one of the best parts about the film apart from the cinematography and some really stunning visuals. I really like the direction and some scenes were shot brilliantly, but there were not enough to make this an impactful film.

Rating

I am going with 2 out of 5 stars for the film, the film is another poor remake from the south industry which was not needed at all, God Knows who asked them to make a remake on this film. I will suggest you skip the film, If you still want to watch the film, You can check the film on Amazon Prime Video.
