'I believe 3D should be immersive like James Cameron's AVATAR and engage the audience. If the 3D doesn't involve the audience, it becomes gimmicky.' This is what RAAZ 3 hero Emraan Hashmi is quoted as saying in today's interview.

BR>Exactly my view; but sadly, RAAZ 3 disengages the viewer from the plot, the movie and ejects a few from the theatre halfway through. The few that are left have no option but humour themselves with 'smart alec' comments to keep boredom at bay.

CHECK OUT: Vikram Bhatt - RAAZ 3 is not PHOONK

Nothing works, not even the 3D effects, except for one or two scenes where you feel objects are being hurled at you. The plot has no spine, the screenplay is atrocious, even Bipasha Basu is forced in her acting while Esha Gupta tries her best to enact a scene. That leaves us with a few extras and Emraan Hashmi; he gets his staple scenes of two good lip locks.

Vikram Bhatt could have easily named this DANGEROUS ISHQ 2 instead of RAAZ 3! It's that disastrous.

The story has no depth. Shanaya (Bipasha Basu) is an actor whose star is on the wane. She wants to win awards through jaado tona. Sanjana (Esha Gupta) is the new heartthrob. Her rise to top has not been established. At an awards function, even before the Best Actress name can be announced, Bipasha gets up because she is sure she will win it. Reason: she has a red thread tied to her wrist. But even the gods refuse to smile on her. Esha has bagged the award. Naturally she is left fuming. She tries 'underworld' for assistance.

Esha and Bipasha are step sisters. She is upset that her father loved her sister more than her and to top it, she is now the reigning queen in Bollywood. Bipasha now wants to get Esha off the radar. So she engages her boyfriend, director Aditya (Emraan), to mix some liquid in her diet to get her to hallucinate. She does... very comically... The liquid has been given to her by someone from the other world.

CHECK OUT: Bipasha-Emraan starrer RAAZ 3 all set for a good start!

Meanwhile, hero falls for sister and turns back on his lover. All hell breaks loose, or at least we are shown to believe. Hero now has to go into the spirit world to fight the demons and win his love back. He goes, and comes back. We are left wondering how we were taken for a royal ride in the name of 3D. Even if the gimmicks were entertaining, it would have been value for money.

The one star rating is for the attempt to make it in 3D. Otherwise, the movie has absolutely nothing to offer. The presentation is a horror in itself.

Rating - 1/5
