Critic Reviews Phobia Movie

  • Bollywood Hungama | Review By -BH Network Rating-6/10
PHOBIA is a well-made taut thriller with an amazing performance by Radhika Apte. However the in film blood and gore may not be to everyone's liking affecting the film's overall box office prospects as it will appeal to a rather niche audience. But for them who have an appetite for the unconventional thrills and psychological mind games, don't miss PHOBIA.

  • News 18 | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-7/10
Phobia succeeds where other thrillers peter out, on account of the sheer unpredictability in the manner that it unfolds. The film has its share of tense moments, and some well-timed jump-in-your-seat scares but frankly it’s about more than that. Phobia is no standard thriller. I’m going with three-and-a-half out of five. Don’t miss it.

  • Times Of India | Review By -Mohar Basu Rating-7/10
Watching a horror film that has no chudail, no exorcist, no graveyards and no ugly make-up is almost like a breath of fresh air. Finally some can scare people without using the quintessential paranormal props. Director Pawan Kripalani does a fine job of weaving the story of a woman who is overpowered by her phobia.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-6/10
Phobia is a genuinely scary film. This despite the fact that it is neither about malevolent ghosts out for vengeance nor about the destructive undead on a rampage. Phobia is a canny flick that places known genre conventions in fresh light, the kind that bestows new life on them. Watch this film for the many surprises it springs and, of course, for Radhika Apte in full flow.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-6/10
‘Phobia’ is a genuinely frightener, so far away from those unintentionally comic monstrosities it keeps slinging out, that you feel like cheering. Keep your eyes slitted, and be on your guard, because something wicked this way comes.

  • Rediff | Review By -Namrata Thakker Rating-7/10
Phobia is easily one of the best psychological thrillers to have come out of Bollywood. From performances to camera work to narrative, all the elements are so finely tuned and in sync that you will be hooked from the word go. Kripalani does a fine job as director and gives us a compelling narrative. If you love the thrills and heebie-jeebies, then Phobia is for YOU!

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Sweta Kaushal Rating-8/10
A spine-chilling psychological thriller with a message -- Radhika Apte’s Phobia will scare you, keep you on the edge and make you think in equal measure. The film has all the elements of a racy thriller -- surprise, fear, mystery and shock. What it doesn’t have is the background music and actors preparing you for a surprise. In Phobia, the unexpected does happen.

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-6/10
Phobia is a step ahead for Bollywood to explore the genres of psychological thrillers. With Radhika Apte’s fine performance, this film is a must-watch for those who love experimental cinema. If you have a taste for unconventional films or psychological thrillers, this should be your pick! I am going with a 3/5.

  • Bollywood Life | Review By -Sreeju Sudhakaran Rating-6/10
Phobia had the potential of being one of those rare Bollywood psychological thriller’s that you can proudly recommend to your friends. A genuinely claustrophobic first half and Radhika Apte’s fantastic performance were its aces. However the limp second half only demotes its status to a decent thriller.

  • Mid Day | Review By -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-7/10
'Phobia' is an intelligent film, which deals with the most unusual of situations. The best thing about this film is that it doesn't follow the trusted and safe route of horror films and gets pleasantly unpredictable at the end. Another huge plus point is its cast. Radhika doesn't miss a single step as she gives an amazingly convincing performance.

  • India Today | Review By -Suhani Singh Rating-7/10
Phobia is a horror-thriller film that doesn't just want to scare the audience but also outsmart them. Just when think they have solved the mystery, director and co-writer Pavan Kripalani knocks them off from their seats. That many didn't foresee the twist, which draws both surprise and laughs, is telling of how unpredictable and cleverly crafted Phobia is.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Rohit Bhatnagar Rating-6/10
Phobia’ has all the elements of a psycho-thriller, enough to leave you second guessing everything, but it tends loses grip in a few scenes. ‘Phobia’ is a sincere effort at making a ‘psycho flick’ with a chilling storyline. Pavan Kripalani’s ‘Phobia’ is a good pick this week unless such psycho thrillers are not your cup of tea.
