CHECK OUT: 13B - New frontiers of Cinema making
- There's a killer in the house in the dead of night. He is banging the television set in the living room and not one of the people sleeping in is disturbed. And this is the 13th floor of a high-rise, not some palatial bungalow.
- There is no connection with the family living in the said flat with that of the spirits troubling them. There is just one faint thread and even that is not enough to justify the uncanny resemblance to the exact number of the dead to the ones living in the flat.
- Suddenly, out of nowhere, two songs are forced on screen, with no rhyme nor reason. A huge uncalled for jerk in the screenplay.
These are just a few flaws of director Vikram Kumar's so-called spook-fest. Yes, the movie drags too, just like a television serial he collaborates on the small screen to justify the happenings on the big. Confusing, right?
In short, Madhavan and his brother take a joint loan to move into their new apartment with their mother, sister, wives and his nephews. And strange things start happening only to Madhavan. It's not long before he realizes that the serial his family is hooked onto is actually telling his life in advance. And it appears only on his television set at 13 hours! After investigations, he realizes that there was a bungalow on the same land where their building now stands which was called 13 B, the number of his flat. Apparently, all eight family members were bludgeoned to death and the killer is scot-free. Kumar gives Madhavan the task of getting justice to the victims.
For Neetu Chandra, this has been a good film, in the sense it gets her a good show reel. The girl has improved since her days in TRAFFIC SIGNAL. There's also that wonderful actor, Deepak Dobriyal. Give him any role and he just digs himself into the character he is supposed to be. He loses self to become the part he is supposed to be. A super actor. SHAURYA and DELHI 6 are his recent exploits
As for the director, he missed the plot completely Rating - 1/5
