Pari asks the big question - are human beings in fact the biggest monsters? I say the biggest horror is a lame script.
It's rare to see a successful mainstream actress not only believe in this as a producer, but strip herself of beauty so fully that her hideousness becomes beguiling.
Pari is technically competent, and Prosit Roy receives production support in plenty. The costumes, hair and make -up, and background music being noteworthy....but themes of good versus evil and love limits this film's appeal to the loyal viewer.
Once Roy strips away the mystery from his characters, Pari loses its way, and it feels like a laboured finish to the end. Even those easily scared (like this reviewer) will find no need to avert their eyes.
It's compelling, but leaves you eventually disturbed.
Pari is the kind of horror that gags and chokes you with an incipient dread. But only up to a point...Roy makes it all too literal, with a righteous take on pregnancy and abortion. In an effort to find neat closure, the director spins a clumsy climax.
Jishnu Bhattacharjee's innovative cinematography tries to cover-up, but he can't rescue a film that fails to explain its lead's sudden change of character.
If you like horror as a genre, and prefer a genuine theme over sheer succession of scary sequences, you will like this one.
A more dramatic story and tauter screenplay would have turned it into a true blue horror film. But in the present form, the only feeling it evokes is of sadness brought out by the fact that a brilliant opportunity got lost.
