Movie Info

Ek Thi Daayan is an entertaining romantic thriller with an electrifying jolt at the end. Bobo is India's leading magician. But unknown to even his girlfriend Tamara, Bobo's life is falling apart. His constant hallucinations leave him with no option but to seek psychiatric help. Going through regression hypnosis, a terrifying story about his childhood surfaces involving a sinister power called Daayan who has not only destroyed his family but also promised to return to haunt Bobo. He chooses to ignore it and move on with his life. Just when his career and love life is at full throttle, enters the irresistible Lisa Dutt. Bobo is convinced that she is the daayan. But is she, really? Or is he just losing his mind? Positively, among the most keenly awaited films of the new year, Ek Thi Daayan, marks the first ever association of two creative powerhouses - Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj. (c) Official Facebook


Critic Reviews for Ek Thi Daayan

  • The inclusion of unnecessary background songs (not subtitled) and a romantic subplot result in a sluggishly paced story, which is further undermined by a lengthy flashback and a preposterous final reveal.

  • Ek Thi Dayaan is a supernatural crowd pleaser that bypasses the usual Bollywood melodramatic themes and gives you lots of witchy chills.

  • Ek Thi Daayan starts out as a well-acted, well-produced supernatural thriller, which could, and should, have climaxed with a knock-out punch. To which end, somebody should have walked across the wrap with a deft pair of webbed feet.

Audience Reviews for Ek Thi Daayan

  • Jun 30, 2013
    Fueled with all sorts of twists and turns, the vehicle offers neither any thrilling or any scary moments. As the movie goes ahead, you're already ahead of it. Like they've picked up some commendable pieces from the best flicks in this genre, and tried to fix the pieces to get something incredible. Unfortunately, the outcome is below average. The casting and a few performances didn't help to make this weak story worthwhile. Nothing here to make it recommendable.
