Introducing Sheetal Menon, a model aspiring to make a mark in Bollywood, Bhram directed by Pawan Kaul is yet another suspense thriller. The movie is the director's second directorial venture and stars Dino Morea, Milind Soman, Sheetal Menon and Simone Singh in pivotal roles. With lack of star value and below average promotion. Does Bhram surprise or yet another cheesy flick?
Shantanu (Dino Morea) falls for a successful model Antra (Sheetal Menon) and develops a strong bond with her. As the relationship grew he gets exposed to some traumatic mystery that almost ruined Antra life. He sets on a mission to find the mystery man and unveil all the secrets behind this incident.
Pawan has the talent to don a director's cap and his effort is evident in the movie. But the story lets him down big time. The sequences were bizarrely placed and the conclusion was appalling. However, Pawan has executed some sequences well. The first half keeps you alert as the focus keeps shifting from present to past. At some point it gets confusing too. The pace of the movie picks up in the second half as the illusions break and the suspense unfolds itself. But again it disappoints with just another drop of a hat kind of climax. It's so hackneyed that the answers run in your mind even before it's seen on screen. Screenplay and dialogues disappoint. Cinematography is good while the music is below average.
The performance factor of the movie is impressive. Dino Morea does well. His expressions were decent and he carries off his part with seriousness. Debutant actress Sheetal Menon creates an impact with a good performance. Simone Singh is first-rate. Miland is good.
Overall, Bhram as a movie is just average but could do well at the single screens; hot women with loads of steamy scenes.
Rating: 1.5 / 5
