- The film deals with a rare psychological condition called agoraphobia.
- The narrative revolves around Mahek (Radhika Apte), who develops a ‘phobia’ after she was sexually assaulted by a taxi driver.
- She is scared to go out in public spaces and is intimidated to meet new people.
- After a series of incidents, Mahek’s boyfriend (Satyadeep Mishra) takes her to a new flat in Malad.
- The previous resident of the flat has gone missing, and her fiancé, who is the neighbour (Ankur Vikal) of Mahek is a weird man who laughs maniacally.
- While, on the other hand, Mahek hears bizarre voices and sees distressing visons.
- She is sure it has something to do with missing case of the previous tenant.
- The theme of the film revolves around the subject of agoraphobia.
- Director Pawan Kripalani has done a great job in setting up Mahek’s bizarre disorder.
- Radhika Apte as Mahek has done a justice to her ‘panicky’ character, who is scared of stepping out of her house. With her ace performance, Radhika makes this film worth watching.
- A couple of sequences make you feel scared as hell, especially, the interval scene.
- Satyadeep Mishara as her compassionate boyfriend acts well, while Ankur Vikal fits best as the weird man.
- The brilliant setup of the plot with some of the scariest sequences in the first half, the film losses its theme in the stretched second half.
- The mystery of the absconding girl was concluded in a haphazard manner.
- In fact, we are not even sure what the director wants to say about Mahek’s predicament.
- The climax was a total disappointment, and devalues its status to a decent thriller.
