‘Raaz’ was a hit movie and it is expected that its sequel will be equally impressive but the movie “Raaz - The Mystery Continues” is not a sequel of ‘Raaz’ although it can be said to be another horror movie form Bhatt camp. Last years success of RGV’s ‘Phoonk’ and ’1920’ might have encouraged Mukesh Bhatt to plan another movie with a horror subject and it was made in name of a hit movie ‘Raaz.’

The story of the film ‘Raaz The mystery continues’ is about an artist Prithvi who generally paints something mysterious and his paintings foretell incidents. The painter paints about women whom he never met and later he tries to search for the girl. Once he paints that the girl is dead. He finds the girl Nandita who refuses to believe that the story of the painter and her boyfriend is also not interested in ghostly stories of the painter.

Later an accident changes her perception about the paintings and she feels that to change her luck she will have to stay in touch with the painter and will have to believe him. But that will part her away from her boyfriend.

The story of the film is about the premonitions and ghostly experiences like the person who is going to be killed is alone and he is followed by some kind of spirit or he gets attacked at some point of his life. You could feel the horror factor and the movie doesn’t go to show any scientifically designed reason or logic behind the incidents and the movie looses grip in the second part.

Most of the previously released horrors like ‘Phoonk’ and ‘1920’ had poor depiction of climax and same can be said for ‘Raaz - The Mystery Continues’ that picks up smoothly in the first part but later in the movie you don’t get proper twists and turns to keep you glued. The depiction and cinematography is attractive. The love songs of the movie have already got many fans and the costumes, look and performance of lead Emraan Hashmi and Kangna Ranaut is impressive.

The film will get audience who love to watch horror movies in multiplex and even in small towns.
