Certain stories that the Ramsay Brothers attempted a few decades ago are being rehashed and packaged in new avatars to this date. The revenge of the restless soul, the reincarnation bit, the spate of murders, the decomposed dead body coming to life… haven't we watched it all in the past? Mallika is hackneyed, uninspired and clichéd from start to end. Also, there's nothing in the film that would make you jump out of your seat or give you sleepless nights at home. On the contrary, the film is unintentionally funny and also makes you chuckle at the absurdities at several points in the story.
In today's times, when storytellers are daring to break the shackles of stereotypical cinema, Mallika comes across as an obsolete fare that offers nothing new to the viewer.
Final word? One of the cheesiest films of all times!

Unable to take it any longer, Sanjana decides to go for a vacation, hoping that those visions will stop chasing her. She lands up at a fort cum resort in Rajasthan. However, little does she know that things are going to go from bad to worse at the fort, which holds a dark secret deep inside its chest.
