Shreyas Talpade & Sada
Though ‘Click’ is a remake of English horror movie ‘Shutter’ but Sangeeth Sivan seems to be really bad at copying even. The script is similar but only one ingredient is missing from the Hindi version i.e. ‘Finesse’. Also the Hindi version has songs and dances here and there added in the script which absolutely spoil the tone of the movie if at all it has any.
Avi (Shreyas Talpade) is a fashion photographer who suddenly finds out that in every photo clicked by him there is a shadowy figure at the background. His camera captures ghosts on every click. After some time the story reveals that the spooky figure in his photograph is an unsatisfied soul which has returned to take its revenge from Avi.
The Climax of the movie is comparatively better than the starting of the movie but, the special effects and sound effects are below average. It lacks the essential special effects which are needed to spice up horror movies. Shreyas Talpade and Sada did their parts well but the poor plot couldn’t drag their performance too far. The cinematography of the movie is also nothing catchy. Though there are few spine chilling sequences like when the specter walks upside down on the roof and also the climax which shows that Avi is burdened for his whole life by the spirit which rides on his shoulders representing his guilt.
No doubt, horror genre is a risky venture but at the same time there is also no denial that this genre has proved hit innumerable times both in Bollywood and Hollywood. 'Bees Sal Baad', 'Raaz'(Part 1) and other such Hindi horror movies made with a good script and skilful direction have been able to prove their aim to leave a nightmare for the audience. But for 'Click' there can be only one verdict : go for it only if you want to kill time!
