Pari: Not a Fairytale (Horrifying & Dangerous)


Pari: Not a Fairytale (Horrifying & Dangerous)

STORY: Arnab (Parambrata Chatterjee) rescues a traumatized Ruksana (Anushka Sharma) found under mysterious circumstances in a secluded jungle.

With nowhere to go and her life is in danger, he then offers her refuge at his home until he discovers a different side to her. Who is this woman and what is her story?


REVIEW:  This is Anushka’s third movie and perhaps her strongest work as a producer-actor (at least her hubby say so), Pari has the ability to redefine the genre as it’s refreshingly different, atmospheric, entertaining and horrifying.

Unlike most of the mainstream horror films, there’s no jarring background score, cliched jump scares, an excessive conversation between characters or dramatic ‘possessed by evil spirit’ performances.

Pari is an art-house, indie thriller which moves at its own pace, in its own unique way.

It has elements that are rare to find in typical Bollywood commercial scary movies — eerie silence, haunting yet soothing melancholic music, an enchanting love story and an air of paranoia that grips you slowly and steadily.

The movie is starring fine set of both Male & Female actors & actresses — Anushka Sharma, Parambrata Chatterjee, and Rajat Kapoor inject the substance to the story with their understated act and ensure it doesn’t fall flat or bored their audience even when the pace drops.

A headphone scene, in particular, will be remembered as one of the best sequences in a horror film for years to come.


The art direction & location deserves a special mention, too. From lonely roads and bylanes of Kolkata, thunderous rains, dark and isolated houses with flickering lights and ghostly curtains… the setting sends shivers down your spine.

The makeup and special effects are thankfully not comical or over the top and immensely contribute to making Pari, a mysterious and suspenseful creepy thriller.

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

Pari has Banned in Pakistan

It’s not new, the boring news is coming from the neighborhood, Like every other Bollywood movie, the Pakistani government has decided to Ban another movie. It’s like a trend for them or maybe this time they cannot see themselves horrified due to a Bollywood movie.
