Phobia Movie Review and Ratings

B-town's new hottie Radhika Apte gained a wide recognition in Hindi cinema after her performance in Badlapur. What his Darr @ The Mall didn't quite pull off, he incorporates in Phobia, as Mahek's therapist tries to engage her with the outside world using virtual reality gizmos. By a twist of fate that only seems to happen in atmospheric chamber pieces, she soon finds herself cooped up in a trendy sixth-floor flat that belongs to a friend of her part-time paramour Shaan's (Satyadeep Mishra). Phobia opens with the Kafka quote "I am a cage, in search of a bird", and Mehak is initially presented as a free bird, no cages or fetters. Only her enthusiastic neighbour Nikki (Yashaswini Dayama) believes her. Shaan, who has so far failed both in his quest to help Mehak and get lucky with her, installs CCTV cameras to shatter Mehak's theory.

Ragini MMS director Pavan Kripalani is back with yet another spine-tingling horror flick - Phobia. I wrote the movie keeping her in mind. Had it not been her, the film would have turned out to be yet-another-dull tale to scare you.

Screenplay by Pavan Kripalani and Arun Sukumar is slightly slow in the first half, but has enough to keep you glued to your seat till the last frame. The background score is commendable. Radhika says she has never signed a film by looking at its genre and has always been concerned about the characters offered to her.

Mumbai: Actor Gulshan Devaiah says that film "Phobia" is actress Radhika Apte's best work but the film left him in a "bad condition". Her act in the climax which leads to a bloodbath shakes you to the bone. It looks at a survivor's struggle to move on from a traumatic night, one which will remind audiences of a real case in Delhi. Satyadeep Mishra has done a fabulous job. "It needs to be a challenging character for me to portray", added Radhika.
