At a running time of one hour and forty minutes, Ramgopal Varma's Agyaat is an interesting experiment that doesn't overstay its welcome.Agyaat makes no pretences about the fact that it's only goal is to rattle you, and it achieves that several times with some chilling moments that make you jump out of your seat.It's not great cinema, it isn't intended to be; Agyaat is an event picture which delivers a few good thrills. With a tighter first-half and a slicker pace and minus those two redundant item songs, this might have been a more compelling ride.

Now this one's a big disappointment from a director who has already proved his forte with the horror genre with goosebump films like Bhoot and Raat.Even Darna Mana Hai had its moments, as did his earlier foray into the danger-infested forest, Jungle. But Agyaat is completely cold meat. It neither thrills nor chills with its repetitive running-for-life sequences and its absolutely infuriating end which offers no explanation whatsoever for the scurrying and screaming. In fact, all that the director does is to rely on his camera and audio track to rustle up the horror.Yes, this one's completely devoid of the fear factor. Wonder if part two will scare you?

AGYAAT works for several factors. The dense jungle blows your mind away, the sound design and the background score are easily at par with international films, the camera movement is spectacular and of course, RGV's execution of the material is just right for a film of this genre. But, at the same time, the culmination to the film is debatable. Of course, one would be doing gross injustice to the film by revealing the end, but it's bound to have its share of advocates and adversaries. It might bring a smile on your face or a smirk, but the fact remains that the reactions would be in extremes.

Ram Gopal Varma's thriller is seriously, decidedly, indisputably funny -- in the ridiculous dialogues recycled by the characters (seems the writers ran out of words), in the forced, schmaltzy romantic interludes, and even the way almost all the characters in this ensemble cast are hurriedly bumped off or turn suicidal so that the lead pair can carry on with their lives.It makes the television horror shows look classier, more substantial.

From the very outset this supposed spook-fest goes miserably wrong with an item number in the title credits. RGV disregards his screenplay with as much nonchalance and this forest film simply goes to the dogs.At the outset, one might want to acknowledge Ram Gopal Varma for choosing an unconventional plot. But through its annoying execution, Agyaat only invites ridicule. The director merely conceives half a dozen death sequences in the forest and absolutely ignores to unveil the evil forces behind it.

s it a ghost? Is it a snake? No, it is Agyaat-The Unknown. Looks like the writers took the title too seriously. Because everything about this movie, from the plot to purpose leaves you guessing. Agyaat lacks the spooky fun of Phoonk or constant eeriness of Jungle. What Agyaat might always be remembered for is its bizarre climax. Only Varma can go ahead with something like this. Agyaat is less scary and more absurd.If the sequel he promised (read threatened) ever gets made, we wish him luck. For now, Agyaat lacks the chills and thrills to make an impact.
