” …the film has just two kind of scenes alternating with each other: a girl in a bath tub (or under a shower) and a girl in the bedroom. Why? Because the girls mostly resemble zombies and it’s hard to differentiate between the ghost girls and the flesh and blood girls…” Nikhat Kazmi, The Times of India

“Wilson tries to induce fear by creepy camera angles and background score, creating the feeling that something eerie is in store. He scores in constructing the anticipation of fear rather than scaring, as what ensues isn’t spooky. The film has some amazingly shot scenes and an effective but loud background score.” Pankaj Sabnani, Glamsham.com
