Film: "Creature"; Cast: Bipasha Basu, Imran Abbas, Mukul Dev, Deepraj Rana; Director: Vikram Bhatt; Stars: ** out of 5
Finally Bollywood attempted to make a creature based movie, following western trend. It's a difficult task for not just the technical team, but for the actors too. The effort of the team was visible but could not possess the flair, which such movies require.
Creature 3D is a story of Ahana who has come to the hilly terrains of Summer Hill from Mumbai after losing her father, her home and everything because of some evil people. She opens a Boutique Hotel in the middle of the jungle, a perfect get-a-way place for the city people from their busy lives. Guests love the place and the natural beauty around until they start witnessing unexplained disappearance of people around. Soon the guests see the deadly creature, Brahma Rakshas, and decide to leave and the hotel is shut. But being brave and not ready to give up her dreams, Ahana decides to fight and save her hotel.
Bipasha played her role well but in some scenes she could have done better. Imran really needs to work on his acting skills. Just like other Bollywood films, Bipasha and Imran were expected to create some magic on screen as a couple, but they could not. Talking about other actors, Mukul Dev and Deepraj Rana are great and should have got more screen space.
The songs are as average as the film, well yet to figure out if it was because of the improper recording or its non-impactful lyrics. The only song that you would like to listen again is 'Sawan aaya hai...'. Well the music played in the background to make the scenes more impactful were typical horror film music, that plays every time ghosts are about to appear.
Being the first creature based Bollywood film it was good, but unfortunately these days most of the Indian audience are fond of watching Hollywood films and they are bound to compare. The movie has some unwanted dialogues and some noticeable flaws. All in all, if you have no other movie to watch this weekend then you can think of giving it a try.
