Wait, wait you will soon get that chill, you will soon spot the spirit, you will soon come face to face with the ghost. Yes, the doll will soon get alive, the boy will definitely scare you to glory. Alas! The wait reveals disappointment and never percolates into that horrifying creepy movie; you hoped you have come to watch.

Mihir Fadnavis (Firstpost)

The film is jam packed with cliches of horror - creepy dolls, a dead child, a new servant coming to an obviously haunted Victorian house, a lame twist - the works. The Boy doesn't really have anything new to offer in the genre.   Read Full Review

Sankhayan Ghosh (The Hindu)

The Boy works as long as it is a psychological thriller until it descends into a slasher flick. It loses the plot when it tries to tie the ends. It doesn't add up and nearly undoes the good job its done in parts until then.   Read Full Review

The Boy Review RatingShalini Langer (The Indian Express)

The best part about this horror film is that it doesn't waste too much time getting started. The worst part about The Boy is just when the premise starts to work, thanks in large part to praiseworthy acting by all its main protagonists particularly the boy's aged parents, director Bell loses control.  Read Full Review
