They all converge in Khamoshiyan and bring out terrifying elements to spook you out. What makes this Karan Darra’s directorial different from recent obnoxious horror-tales is that besides having not so unfamiliar plot, the movie’s culmination is compelling, which is so vital for a horror-mystery.
After a series of avoidable fares, the horror cinema is back with a vengeance. It may not be the most eerie experience, but it has its share of terrifying moments that one expects from a film that deals with psychological ways leading to paranormal events. A young novelist Kabir (Ali Fazal) is a one-book wonder and is on an inspirational journey to find himself and write his book. He meets a young and beautiful lady Meera (Sapna Pabbi) who runs the isolated guest-house in Kashmir, which he finds weird.
Meera is married to the owner of this guest-house Jaidev (Gurmeet) who was once a rich paper mill owner. Jaidev under the disguise of his charming persona is a controlling demon. Kabir soon begins to encounter unusual things and discovers secrets about the house and its owner Meera.

Meera is evasive about these suspicious incidents that are taking place. The more Kabir interacts with Meera about these strange incidents the more he gets drawn towards her.
What are the secrets that are hidden behind her silence? Khamoshiyan gives you gripping answers to those questions. Without doubt, the movie will help Bhatt’s to regain the place in the horror-genre. In fact, it’s after a really long gap that they seem to be in a complete command. The writing by Vikram Bhatt, is well structured while director Karan builds and sustains the required mystery around it until he thrills us all with its convincing climax.
What’s more intriguing is the chemistry between Ali-Sapna and Gurmeet-Sapna. You are never able to judge what is going in their mind when they play with their intimacy. But that’s what is required in the game of lust and love here. Moreover, we are surprised by the performance of the not-so-celebrated star cast.
However, we are all aware about their caliber particularly Ali Fazal and Gurmeet Choudhary. Gurmeet doesn’t let the opportunity go waste and grabs it with both of his hands.

He carries that devilish smile on his face, which is also charming while his grey shades keep us hooked. Ali Fazal brings out the intensity and eagerness in his act quite masterfully. Sapna Pabbi as a mysterious woman lures us.
