    When he perishes his false eye does a little dance of death on the floor. Like a child that will have its way even if the mother must be mortified in the process.And yes, we will never inhale the scent of an agarbatti in the same away again.

    If you love horror then Pari is a fitting tribute to the genre. I suggest sleeping with the lights on if you end up watching a late night show ! Yes, it’s that good.

    Pari is a delightful treat and it is advised that people with weak hearts should enter the theatre at their own risks.

    If you like horror as a genre, and prefer a genuine theme over sheer succession of scary sequences, you will like this one fascinating as it isn’t bound by the diktats of commercial cinema.

    Hollywood, please take out the notepad and write down the stuff from Pari on how to make a non-cliched horror film. Surely one of the best in this genre & a must watch for the fans. Producer Anushka Sharma needs a special mention to make this possible.

    Pari has its share of flaws. It runs for at least 15-20 minutes longer than it ideally should have.  The setup takes a major chunk of the film’s first half and it is only in the second half that the movie begins to pick some pace. Pari has very good production values and features brilliant performances from Anushka Sharma, Parambrata Chattopadhyay, and Rajat Kapoor. There is no denying that Pari is a different kind of a horror film but it is certainly worth a watch for those looking for something refreshing.

    The best horror movies are ones that make you laugh as you scream — laughing presumably at your own screaming — but Pari doesn’t operate on that level.

    Pari, as the tagline says, is ‘not a fairy tale’. Those who love the horror genre can give it a try.

    Kapoor as the determined exorcist isn’t an easy man to like, but that’s his victory in such a film. Watch this if you are in the mood for a gore-filled horror film.

    …has an interesting premise with a fair amount of chills and thrills. However, the weak screenplay and unnecessary blood and gore is off putting. At the box office, the film will appeal to the segment of audiences who enjoy the horror/gore genre of films.

    The hallmark of a good scary movie is that the scares come at you from all sides, fast and furious and do not allow you to breathe. This movie is slow to create the scary world, and even though you enjoy it, it takes too long to actually make you gasp for air. But what an awesome beginning for Anushka Sharma and Parambrata Chatterjee.

    Pari doesn’t come together in a coherent, satisfying way. There’s a lot going on in the film, including references to true historical events from the subcontinent, and an over-dependence on old wives’ tales about spirits and ‘ifrits’ and ‘jinns’. What starts out interestingly, ends in a mess.

    Pari is different from other Bollywood horror films. Yes. But, we still have a long, long way to go in the genre.

    Watch it if you dig the horror genre – Anushka’s acting is definitely worth a dekko, as hubby Virat as already publicly proclaimed.

    Pari appears puzzled as if they don’t know how to end what they started. Anushka Sharma’s film attempts to look different than usual ‘bhoot ki film’, but in the end, finishes right where 1920 Evil Returns or Alone did.

    Pari intelligently slips in socio-political commentary, addressing the Bangladesh refugee crisis. The underlying message that the film tries to bring home is that one’s identity is not dictated by boundaries laid down either by humans, nature or even the supernatural. One may not realise the film’s symbolic relevance while watching it, given its immersive treatment, but it does offer a resolution.

    Pari should’ve been more entertaining and less confusing. Although it has some terrifying scenes and a couple of heartwarming ones, those are simply not enough. The film will not be able to reach even the average mark mainly because it does not leave the audience satisfied. It will entail losses.
