one of thw WORST horror movie i have ever seen.. i guess ram gopal varma has lost his mind (excpet for his old movies and sarkar + sarkar raaj).. it was horror at all... was very very boring and made me yawn!!!

Ram Gopal Verma is turning random. I liked the concept of this movie, but it took too long to get there. It was not until the second half of the movie until the audience figures out the conflict. This also was not so much of a horror movie, but more like a suspense. The girl, however, acted very well. The rest of the cast was average. The message at the end was decent though as well. Overall, a very average movie. Definitely worth watching once, but once was enough.

good, but doesn't live up to the hype. quite similar to Bhoot. the girl did a great job acting. the camera angles were good, but seriously, i feel like half the movie was like a virtual tour of all the statues in the house.

Phoonk commence tres bien. Alors que l'intrigue se construit, le suspens monte grace aux plans tres particuliers et absolument magnifiques. Malheureusement, les mauvais effets speciaux finissent par prendre le pas sur l'histoire. Dommage, car le boulot du cameraman est simplement remarquable.

so this should be the scariest horror movie ever made, right? well, it's not! it's beautifully shot - all the colours and the angles. that's okay and it makes it not look cheap. but the story is too much "india", too much focusing on details that aren't necessary for the story and confuse the people who watch it - and it's too much cliché. so "phoonk" is not as scary as they tell you. you can watch it alone. at night. in the dark. don't worry...

Why is this classified as a horror? It should be a psychological thriller. RGV makes good horrors but Phoonk was just goes haywire!

no horror at all,clumsy direction...esp. focussing on non-sense objects all the time.Some funny moments actually.

black magic...phew...u wud think an exciting movie is in store...and what u get in return is a dumbed down version of black magic frm a has-been director...who sandwiches some excellent performances between uninspiring and poor acts. Phoonk is a return of the mercurial RGV to the horror genre wherein he makes a feeble attempt to recreate the aura of his 90's horror flicks. He fails to do so as he is let down by a string of average to poor performances by his lead cast.
Noteworthy of the film is its technical brilliance and the cameraman wil simply blow u out with his handling of the lens but apart from that the film falls short of most expectations( if anyone had any !!! since this must be RGV's 1000th flop)

All right horror/thriller made by Ram Gopal Varma.

Compared to all RGV movies, Phoonk has to be the most entertaining after Rangeela!! Watch out for the little girl, she is electrifying!! Ramu said it himself that Ahsaas Channa is the best actress he has ever worked with.

It is one movie that was made just for the heck of it. Its time RGV retires, or least he can do is make himself aware of the meaning of "horror". I have seen directors going from bad to good, this one is an exception. Better luck next time.

The subject was a good one, because black magic, voodoo are things that I personally believe really do exist in our world, whether we're aware of it or not. It had potential to be a GREAT movie.....unfortunately, it lost steam after the first 30 minutes! Why was the little girl acting possessed? I didn't realize that having voodoo performed on a person caused a spirit to enter their body? Then the scene in the climax with flying bugs and God knows what else....it was overdone!

Acting was good by everyone involved, but the movie really wasn't anything extraordinary. It's a time-pass movie at best. Not horribly scary.....but not an AWFUL movie either. It was just an attempt at making a movie about black magic. It could've been great, but unfortunately, was not.
