The movie revolves around the character Bobo (Emraan Hashmi), India's leading magician. But unknown to even his girlfriend Tamara (Huma Qureshi), Bobo's life is falling apart. His constant hallucinations leave him with no option but to seek psychiatric help.
Going through regression hypnosis, a terrifying story about his
childhood surfaces involving a sinister power called Daayan who has
not only destroyed his family but also promised to return to haunt
Bobo. He chooses to ignore it and move on with his life. Just when
his career and love life is at full throttle, enters the
irresistible Lisa Dutt (Kalki Koechlin).
Bobo is convinced that Lisa is the daayan. But is she, really?
Or is he just losing his mind? Ek Thi Daayan has some
terrifying, spine chilling moments. There are high, gripping
moments in the film, especially the first half, it's hell
Our very own serial kisser Emraan Hashmi gets into the skin of his character and plays a convincing magician. Huma looks stunning and poised, while Konkana Sen Sharma is just dynamic and remarkable. She stands out as the best amongst all. Kalki disappoints us big time, can't help but blame her loosely-written character.
Ek Thi Daayan is a nightmare, hell scary and will leave giving goose-bumps. Honestly, one of the scariest movies I've ever watched so far. Do not give a miss to this!
