Story –

 

The story revolves around a girl named Roohi (Janhvi Kapoor) from the small town of Mujaribaad, who is innocent and simple but possessed with a ghostly side of Afza. One day Roohi is kidnapped by two men named Bhaura Pandey (Rajkummar Rao) and Kattanni Qureshi (Varun Sharma) who specialize in “Pakdaai Shaadi” which means bride kidnapping. As per the custom, the bride is kidnapped and then married off.

But Bhaura and Kattanni get a call from Guniya that because the groom’s uncle has passed away so the marriage is postponed for a week. Bhaura and Kattanni take Roohi to an abandoned place in Ambiyapur only to realize that she is possessed. Bhaura falls for Roohi while Kattani develops feelings for the ghostly side to Roohi aka Afza. This is where the movie forms the crux.

Review –

 

The director Hardik Mehta has done a good job in choosing a genre that is not very common to Bollywood. A lot of people feel that this is the sequel to Stree, which sadly it is not. Though the role of Rajkumar Rao in the two movies might seem similar, Stree was more engaging and comic than Roohi. The overall story plot was average and the ending was not the best. The movie seemed to end abruptly, leaving the audience a little anxious.

Roohi Movie Review

Janhvi Kapoor played both the contrasting characters quite well but the movie misses out on the scary bits and is more on the comic part. Rajkumar Rao with his great acting fits into the role of Bhaura quite well and plays a prominent role in entertaining the audience throughout. Varun Sharma, with his presence, guarantees quality humor and amusement. Some dialogues and references are surely going to crack the watchers. The climax of the movie makes it interesting but the ending could have been better. Overall the movie is entertaining and good for a one-time watch.
