Analysis:

Milind Rau came with a typical horror story to scare movie lovers and score a super hit. He starts off in a interesting manner in Hollywood style introducing movie lovers to a very old bungalow narrating incidents of the past and then coming to the present to narrate the scary incidents.

Though he takes his own time to take movie lovers into the happenings and keeping the mystery intact, he does good job in the first half with nothing really happening. In the second half, unraveling of the mystery starts and he slowed the pace a little bit till the pre climax and climax.

He followed typical template of Hollywood style in his horror narration and those who watch Hollywood films do not find anything new. However others get different kind of experience seeing this story, screenplay and direction on screen.

One gets a feeling that he could have added few more twists and turns to make it more interesting.

Verdict:


On the whole, Gruham is a true blue horror thriller which is to the point. There is no unnecessary hungama in the film which sidetracks the attention of the viewers. Great spooky scenes, taut narration and good performances are huge assets. The storyline is old school and has nothing new to offer. If you ignore this very point, this film ends up a thrilling watch this weekend.
