Post Kyaa Kool Hai Hum and Apna Sapna Money Money, Sangeeth Sivan has got saddled with the image of making laughathons. Partly also because his non-comedies like Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne and Ek - The Power Of One fell flat on their face. With Click, Sivan proves that he's at home in horror segment too. The spirits are vindictive and in Bollywood, very predictable too, right? In fact, the spirits here are in their 20s, have dark, uncombed hair, wear white saris and have one expression from start to end. Click follows the same path, but is different too.

Click is heavily inspired by the Thai film Shutter [2004], which was made in the United States with the same name and which has also been attempted in Tamil and Telugu languages in India. Of course, you may draw parallels with Raaz [Dino Morea, Bipasha Basu] too, but only one part of that film is similar to this one.

Although quite derivative, Click remains watchable for two reasons: The storyline is interesting [if you haven't watched any of the versions, of course] and the horror quotient is better than most horror films made in Bollywood. Also, the sound design is efficiently done. Of course, there's a flipside too. The film could've done with better special effects, could've been shorter [it tends to get repetitive at times], could've been fast-paced and could've also done without songs. Final words? Horror movie lovers shouldn't be disappointed!
