Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Despite its near-total absence of subtlety, bloated running time and, yes, even the inclusion of a couple of out-of-place musical sequences -- does manage to change to a relatively new channel."
‑ Laura Kern, New York Times
"J-horror-styled supernatural thriller from India doesn't have the gore or intensity of the real thing, and for many in the mainstream, that's a relief. Low-budget-looking but effective, with a great central gimmick."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"There's a disarmingly benign, albeit decidedly precious, charm to the film."
‑ Simon Abrams, New York Press
"A rare example of a flat-out Indian horror movie [that] borrows liberally from The Amityville Horror playbook and familiar Asian horror tropes, but the haunted soap opera is a new wrinkle."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Miss FlickChick
