Alone Hindi Movie Review

Critic Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)

  •  Bollywood Hungama | Review By -Hungama Network Rating-4
While the film is a remake of a Thai film by the same name, ALONE is the story of Sanjana (Bipasha Basu) who is forced to return to Kerala with her husband Kabir (Karan Singh Grover) after her mother meets with an accident. When Sanjana, the survivor between conjoined twins

  •  CNN IBN | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-3
Buried somewhere beneath all the shrieks and scares in the ominously titled horror film Alone is a black comedy straining to reveal itself. Think about it: one half of a pair of conjoined twins demands to be surgically cut off from her killjoy sister because she won't let her have any alone

  •  Times Of India | Review By -Meena Iyer Rating-5
So what happens when conjoined twins Anjana and Sanjana (Bipasha Basu) make the same man, Kabir (Karan Singh Grover) the object of their desire? No prizes for guessing. The sisters end up despising one another and can hardly wait to go their separate ways (pun intended).

  •  NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-4
Alone isn't as horrifically bad as most Bollywood horror flicks tend to be. But that obviously is not saying much. No matter how hard it tries, Alone, directed by Bhushan Patel of Ragini MMS fame, cannot break free from the constricted space that the genre allows. This scare fest is

  •  Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
A besotted wife, an over-busy husband, and a dark secret is bundled up and transported to a sprawling house in the Kerala backwaters. A locked outhouse opens one stormy night, and then. The ingredients for a horror film are all there, but ‘Alone’ very quickly becomes a tussle

  •  Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-5
I have to agree even though adapted; the film’s story is quite a breath of fresh air with a haunted twin as the focus. Alone has its own spine-chilling moments and in certain scenes the visual effects such as the ‘rotating bed scene’ almost takes you back to the Exorcism of Emily Rose.

  •  India Today | Review By -Suhani Singh Rating-3
With films like Raaz 2, Aatma and Creature to her credit, it is safe to say that Bipasha Basu hearts horror and wouldn't mind the label of India's go-to horror actress. And so we have Alone, which has all the tropes of the genre: a big house in the middle of nowhere with electricity hassles

  •  Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Sushmita Murthy Rating-4
If leave-your-brains-at-home comedy is a real thing in Bollywood, then Alone is its horror counterpart. To be fair, it stays true to its genre and can send a few chills down your spine, but in totality, we’re not so sure. A love triangle between a pair of conjoined twins Sanjana and Anjana

  •  Mid Day | Review By -Shakti Shetty Rating-5
Horror is a six-letter word beginning with a ‘h’ and ending with a ‘r’. Just like humour. And nowhere else do we get such an unintentional conjoining of these two words the way it happens in Hindi cinema. A majority of the movies which are meant to scare us end up tickling us pink, and how.

  •  Mumbai Mirror | Review By -Rahul Desai Rating-2
When aliens wipe out humanity and set their base up in Swachh Bharat, they're going to want to know what we did for laughs. Deep beneath an Ooty grave, they will locate a dungeon out of which thousands of DVDs will spill out. I can imagine their confusion when they discover

  •  The W14 | Review By -Mayank Shekhar Rating-4
I went in for a horror movie, but I’ll tell you what I found freaky: the romance in it. There are Siamese twin sisters in this picture. Then there’s a boy who falls for one of the twins who is literally joined to the other by the hip. He eyes her from the corner of his sketchbook while he draws

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Sweta Kaushal Rating-2
Ragini MMS's Bhushan Patel is back with what he thinks only he excels in: Trying to spook us with yet another supernatural thriller. Trouble is, with Bollywood's self-styled horror queen Bipasha Basu trying too hard to... well, look scary, and TV's newest import to the big

  •  Book My Show | Review By -Samiya Dinware Rating-4
A dark past, a wrecked house locked for several years, an old doll lying in a corner, a broken swing, a barking dog, flickering lights and many more. If those kind of scenes scare you then Alone is the film for you. Yes, the story is full of cliched moments that we have seen a gazillion times

  •  Moviez Adda | Review By -Divya Solgama Rating-6
There was a time when horror films in our Hindi cinema were mostly made by the Ramsay Brothers followed by Mohan Bhakri and a few more. Most of these films had few regular faces such as Deepak Parasher, Raj Kiran, Javed Khan, Hemant Birje, Navin Nischol, etc. Mahesh Bhatt’s

  •  Masala.com | Review By -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-5
Ram Gopal Varma just had a makeover. Long haired, smooth skinned, he is now available with a pair of big, bulging (control your emotions) eyes! If there is one person who can dethrone Ramsay Brothers or Ram Gopal Varma from their monopoly on the horror genre, it’s Bipasha

  •  Bollywood Life | Review By -Namrata Thakker Rating-3
If you have seen the Thai horror flick Alone then you already know the story. But for all those who haven’t, here’s what Bhushan Patel’s latest directorial venture Alone is all about: Sanjana and Anjana (Bipasha Basu) are conjoined twins who are happy with their medical condition.

  •  Glamsham | Review By -Martin D'Souza Rating-2
Alone can be best described as torture in slow-motion. For a horror film to be effective, it cannot get repetitive. How long can creaking doors, dark nights, and eerie sounds scare you? To a point yes; after a point it becomes a cruel joke, not only on the audience but also on the characters

  •  DNA | Review By -Tushar Joshi Rating-3
Scary is sexy. But sometimes scary can also be a lot of other things, especially when there is a lack of an exciting script, direction that brings nothing new to the table and a lead cast who behaves like they are shooting for a swimsuit calendar. Despite the seductive promos and skin show

  •  Daily Bhaskar | Rating-3
The much-awaited thriller Alone, which is the remake of 2007 Thai film of the same name, hits the screens today. Bong beauty Bipasha Basu, who has already acted in horror flicks Raaz, Raaz 3 and Aatma, is all set with yet another ‘scary’ act! The film has been directed by 1920: The evil

  •  Now Running | Review By -Mansha Rastogi Rating-4
Times of badly ripping off, blatantly ripping off or even being inspired by international films are way past behind. The latest is officially taking the rights, remaking the film no matter how bad the remake may turn out to be, at least we do it with a head held high right?

  •  Sify | Review By -Sonia Chopra Rating-3
The film begins with a thunder-and-lightning type scene complete with howling wolves and creaking doors. We see the deserted bungalow where this scene is playing out. The inhabitant (Neena Gupta) is found unconscious on the steps of the bungalow's locked outhouse. Her daughter

  •  Indiaglitz | Review By -Vishal Verma Rating-4
‘Alone’.. not really.. This bollywoodised expose to the Thailand import of the same name starring the B-town Horror queen Bipasha Basu and introducing TV star Karan Singh Grover tries to be smarter in its body but the spirit is possessed by the cliche, conventional
