Does the spirit get her revenge? Does the actual Anjana die? What happens to Kabir and the love between him and one of the conjoined twins forms the crux of the sotry.
Bhushan Patel has directed two horror films in the past and some where the technique of direction does remind you of his old films. The horror effects are pretty good for a Hindi movie and the special effects too manage to scare you a little bit. Songs have no special ring to it, they are monotonous and have the leading couple romance in different ways possible.
Karan has acting experience owing to his television serials but he lacks in his overall performance in the movie. Bipasha Basu is the true horror queen but somewhere her acting too reminds you of the other horror movies she has done in the past. Rest of the characters don't have as much significance as these two leading actors but nevertheless they have given good performances.
If you are a horror movie freak, Alone may be dull for you! Else, it can make up for a decent weekend watch that'll probably make you laugh more and scare less.

Bipasha Fitness Freak
The fact that I eat is a good thing, which is why I have it in my head that I also have to work out to maintain myself. It's very important and I know that if you have to eat, you also have to look after your health. So, I make sure that I don't miss out on either side, which is why this balance in life is very important.
Well, I got my first tattoo on my right arm which is a dragon when I was 21. At that time, I didn't put any thought into it, so I just got a dragon. The next one is on the left arm, which is an aboriginal design, which has a crucifix in it. The left shoulder has the symbol of the seven archangels. Then another one on my right arm, which says 'peace, love, happiness and success,' in Mandarin letters. Then there's another one on the same right arm, which was the most painful. The latest is a birthday gift to myself. It's my self-proclaimed designation, superstar, on my left leg. And then one that is across both wrists, that says, 'Anything but ordinary.'
WhyKaran Likes Tattoos
For me, my body is my canvas. I can do whatever I want with it. And I like tattoos. If something means a lot to me, I like the fact that I can get it written on me or painted on me.
Alone is not releasing in that many theatres so the film's Box Office collection may not be that high and will be in the range of Tevar.
A number of songs in Alone movie are all picturized on different ways the lead actors can kiss and make out. Watch it for tips you can follow in your love life.
As much as the couple say they match and look good together, they don't. Bipasha Basu looks tad older to Karan.
