This is one film that has been stuck in the pipeline since 2 years. And finally when it sees the light of the day it's up against a stiff competition from the multi-starrer overhyped film Aarakshan. So does it stand a chance? I wonder!

Kabir Malhotra (Rajneesh Duggal), a renowned doctor marries Sia (Roshni Chopra). One day Sia disappears without a word. Disha (Adah Sharma) a person who can foresee things by some special ability helps Rajneesh with clues that take him closer to unravel the mystery of his missing wife. How while finding his wife he stumbles upon his past and how the tale takes a complete twist is what follows through the rest of the plot.

Phhir is a combination of supernatural thriller and romance. If the filmmaker could possibly add other genres like comedy, drama et all I am sure he may have done that too as the way he twists his story to blend the suspense, romance and supernatural elements of spirits, previous birth, reincarnation etc. is not only bizarre but amusing. If you keep aside the supernatural part, the suspense bit of it is still decent with the twist of the wife going missing making you apply your brains.

The intercutting in the film is pretty intelligently used but the problem is that filmmaker Girish Dhamija makes overuse of it reducing its impact. The setting is the only thing that stands out in the film. The director has meticulously kept the backdrop intact. Rajneesh Duggal, Adah Sharma and Roshni Chopra all are decent in their parts. A glaring error in the film is the background score and the out of focus scenes. The songs running in the background never matches with the situation going on screen. While there are quite a few scenes going out of focus.

To sum it up, Phhir is one film that you cannot think about watching again.
