The terrible acting leaves you more amused than scared.
While Bhatt has managed to piece together the disjointed ends of his extremely laborious story, and there is a climax that one did not expect, it already too late. With the number of songs in the film, which all sound the same, '1921' is more of a horror-musical. Even if you are weak-hearted, this one will not scare you for too long.
If you plan to watch this movie keeping in mind 1920, a disclaimer for you this is nowhere near to Vikram Bhatt’s first and best film of this franchise. You are in for a roller coaster ride with this film, 1921.Where on one end you might find yourself gasping for breath on the other end you might not stop yourself from giggling at times.
A fellow audience member described it best: It’s like an onion—you cry as you peel it and you can keep peeling it and keep crying, but you can also stop at any time.
Simply put, watch this one if you absolutely must. No FOMO here, though.
If you were aware of 1921, my sympathies. If you weren’t, the ignorance is indeed bliss.
