If you like watching horror genre films despite the fact that you get scared easily then 3 A.M. will give you goosebumps but not too many...
What's it about: The film basically revolves around three childhood friends who are colleagues as well. Sunny (Rannvijay Singh Singha) is a successful reality TV show host and his buddies Raj (Kevin Dave) and Cyrus (Salil Acharya) are producers. At the success party of their show, Sunny proposes to her long time girlfriend Sarah(Anindita Nayar). His life is perfect untill Sarah is found dead at Rudra mills - The most haunted place in the country. Sunny is shattered but he decides to start a new horror reality show along with his two friends. With this show, he wants to prove that ghosts do exit. So Sunny, Raj and Cyrus then head off to the infamous Rudra mills to capture paranormal activities. As the clock strikes 3 A.M. (which is known as Devil's hour), things aren't the same, the three friends are terrorized and one of them gets possessed by an evil spirit. So do Sunny and his friends survive the night? Or do they get killed? Well, you have to watch the film for that.
What's hot: While the first half is hardly spooky, there is loads to watch out in the second half. Some of the scenes are indeed spine chilling. Also, Rannvijay, Kevin and Salil have played their parts well. However, Kevin and Salil do steal away show with performances. Though it's a horror flick, there are few comic punches which are original and Kevin Dave mouths them to perfection with his bang on comic timing. As for Salil, lets just say he should do more horror films. Also, the music isn't bad.
What's not: I wish the script was as good as some of the performances in the film. While the first half was hardly spooky, the second half started with a bang and managed to keep me on the edge of my seat, but not for too long. Some of scenes reminded me of quite a few Hollywood flicks like The Conjuring, Exorcism of Emily Rose, Insidious, Insidious 2 and lastly Sixth Sense. Since I am a horror movie buff, I feel this film could have been better if the script was tighter and sharp. Also, there were quite a few moments when I regretted entering the theater.
Verdict: As I said earlier, if you get scared easily then watch this film and have fun. And the rest of you, well watch it if you have nothing else to do this weekend!
