Ghost 2019 Movie Review

A booming political career, plush cars, a fancy apartment, and a convenience-based marriage – everything seems to be hunky-dory in young politician Karan Khanna’s life, who has high aspirations from the upcoming UK elections. But, his life – personal and otherwise – comes crumbling down when his wife is murdered one fateful night and he is the prime suspect in the case. Karan has to prove his innocence by virtue of ‘the spirit possession theory’, with the help of a lawyer, who seems to have deep-rooted psychological issues of her own. The odds are stacked against him and that forms the crux of this film’s story.

The story is set in London (making this horror flick visually appealing) with wealthy NRIs at the center of a gruesome homicide case. But, just when you start to buy into the idea that the sequences in the screenplay are actually taking the plot forward, the quintessential paranormal set-pieces kick in. Sure, Bollywood has always been notorious for generating laughable CGI-curated horror, but Vikram Bhatt has enough experience in the genre now, to avoid such clichés. Sadly, with the onset of the evil spirit into this murder mystery, the plot doesn’t thicken, but it loses all semblance.
Speaking of clichés, the spirit’s backstory in this film deals with love and subsequent betrayal. It’s the classic done-to-death scenario of a broken heart leading to the creation of a malicious spirit. The lack of originality continues to haunt Indian horror movies even in 2019. It gets all the more painful, that such lackluster content comes from a filmmaker who has in the past made decent horror movies.
The lead actress, Sanaya Irani, is likable as an emotional but troubled soul in a world full of sharks. She taps into her years of experience in the television industry and her performance is believable and at times a little too polished for an unfurnished script. But, Shivam Bhargava, isn’t half as convincing as Sanaya’s character (even the ghost, played by Caroline Wilde, leaves a more memorable impact). His chocolate boy looks, coupled with the average acting skills, make him appear as someone vulnerable and not the utilitarian that his character is supposed to be.

No surprises though, that this movie from the Bhatts has decent music. It doesn’t have any blockbuster songs but, the compositions work out against the exotic locales of the UK’s countryside and London.
In the end, ‘Ghost’ offers nothing new, not in terms of storytelling nor in evoking a fear with the usual thrills and spills. This one’s another shot in the dark in what has become one of the most underutilized genres in Bollywood right now.
