Pari Movie Review: Supported by a terrific cast, Prosit lets Anushka shoulder most of the work here. She is gloriously scary and kudos that a mainstream actress didn’t think it’s a suicide attempt to do a film like this. It’s not.

Of the many things that Pari is, scary is the most prominent after-feeling. And refreshing. Yes, novel too, if you consider Hindi horror movies. Ifrit was only a passing thing my childhood nanny had once told me about and since that scared me so much, she never finished the story of the demonic jinn. The movie by Prosit Roy brings back the concept of public knowledge. Anushka Sharma plays Rukhsana, who seems all human but there’s something off about her. She seems other worldly, enough that her mother kept her tied and chained. Rukhsana meets Arnab (Parambrata Chatterjee) when a car driven by his father-in-law kills her mother. The kind-hearted Arnab decides that Rukhsana is his responsibility till he can find something else for her to do. The story that unravels is one that will run chills down your spine.

But what is irksome in this saga is that around hardly bares the backstory of Rukhsana till the end, and even when he does there are a fair amount of loose ends to tie up. But Prosit invests entirely in this drama, keeping it crisp and adequately frightening all through. The biggest respite is that the film isn’t a sleaze horror show which tacky ghost faces. A fair amount of intelligence reflects in practically every frame of the film. Prosit seems to have grown up on a pedigree of Hindi horrors and thus he knows exactly what to refrain from. He does not give you shrieks when you are waiting; it turns up most unexpectedly and will knock the daylights off you.

Supported by a terrific cast, Prosit lets Anushka shoulder most of the work here. She is gloriously scary and kudos that a mainstream actress didn’t think it’s a suicide attempt to do a film like this. It’s not. If anything, this is one film which will shine on her resume. A start of smart horror films and more mainstream actresses taking the plunge for non-glamorous parts. It looks like she got a real kick from the story and she is having great fun at her work in this one for sure. The pleasant face as Vidya Balan’s aide in Kahaani is Rukhsana’s friend here. Those not familiar with his Tollywood work, are only seeing glimpses of his brilliance here. Playing his character to the tee, he makes the vulnerabilities of his character palpable.

Special mention to Rajat Kapoor and Ritabhari Chakraborty who are both well fitted in their parts.  It’s commendable that The Film keeps its mystery alive all through. A great edit team, subtle and apt music, the perfect background score and mostly, some solid writing makes this film a deserving winner. Don’t miss Pari, some hiccups aside it serves its purpose – no sleep for at least a week. Well, hello insomnia!

We rate it a 70% on the Pinkvilla Movie Meter.
