? A Question Mark Movie Review

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Taran Adarsh Site:Bollywood Hungama

This one is a brave, innovative endeavor as far as Indian cinema is concerned, but the movie enthuses in bits and spurts. I’d like to single out the sequence wherein Simran gets possessed, besides a few sequences that do make you believe in paranormal activities, but the film stagnates towards the latter part since one can estimate by now what the culmination would be. Predictability is what bogs the film downwards. Besides, it’s not petrifying at all [the sound design does startle you, but the visuals don’t!] and if the objective was to give you those heebie-jeebies or make you break into a cold sweat, nope, it’s just not alarming enough. The frights and frisson are few and far between, honestly! On the whole, ? is a daring attempt, but is deficient in shocks and shivers, besides being cliched and foreseeable after a point. The title [?] may’ve attracted your attention, but the movie doesn’t in its entirety!

The movie takes its basic template from the 1999 guerilla Hollywood hit, The Blair Witch Project, and it is possible to suggest other influences too. But this is a very smart localized scare-flick that relies primarily on an idea to define its personality. Apart from the larger gimmick of showing everything as footage found from a camera, the film refrains from using standard horror-film props, rather relying on the helplessness of the protagonists to gain sympathy. Made on a bikini-budget, ? is efficient experimental cinema with clever use of the dialogues and sharp camerawork. That’s a compliment to the behind men and women behind scenes. It wouldn’t have worked but for the natural acting by the gang of seven, most of them rookies.

What’s Good: A few scary scenes.What’s Bad: The screenplay which dips in the latter half; the inaudible dubbing; the excessively shaky camerawork which might put off a section of the viewers.Verdict: ? works in parts but the absence of known faces and its poor promotion will tell on its fate at the box-office.Loo break: A couple.Watch or Not?: Watch it if you are a film student.

Percept Pictures’ untitled film, known only as ? opens along the same lines as The Blair Witch Project but, unlike that hauntingly classic footage, this one doesn’t quite live up to its promise.Part of the reason is the director’s decision to deliberately stay away from blood-and-gore, probably to evoke more of a psychological scare than a visual one.The best that can be said for this unimaginatively titled experiment is that it attempts a new genre in an industry devoid of path-breaking technique or content.

‘?’ (Question Mark) gets shackled by too much explanation about ‘spirits’ and ‘paranormal activity’, and it could have done with more crispness, and a little less amateurishness. But as an attempt which stays true to its purpose, of providing uneasy chills, ‘?’ (Question Mark) pretty much does its job.
