The very foundation, on which the story of DARR @ THE MALL rests, is creaky. Given this backdrop, it's a wonder that director Pawan Kripalani manages to stretch this to 124 minutes. The scary moments get pulled beyond the 'fear indicator' and the night at the mall turns out to be just another attempt to scare the living daylights out of you.
No one is frightened.
There is a rumour surround Amity Mall that it is haunted. Security personnel are killed and the owners want to squash public speculation and re-launch the Mall in a grand manner to increase its footfalls, and subsequently sell off the property.
The owners also have a tough time in recruiting security personnel because no one wants to set foot here. In walks Vishnu (Jimmy Shergill). He is the chief of security.
Even before the grand opening can begin, Vishnu's colleague goes missing. At the party, the bloodshed begins as one after the other, the joint-owners and their children are attacked. Jimmy is confused as to why he is being left unharmed
Therein lies the mystery on which hangs the plot.
Jimmy is a fine actor, but of late he is making the wrong choices. I wonder what made him walk into this mall?
