This is death by boredom!
With its somber palette and plot-with-potential, Aatma could have been a true scare-fest. But it winds down to being well begun, half done.
It's impossible to be scared by any of this.
Aatma does push the boundaries with some mildly grotesque scenes and better production values.
Aatma is meant to send shivers down the spine and shock the viewers out of their seats. All it does manage to do is set off a few mild waves of cold bemusement.
Aatma may not send shivers down your spine, but it dares to be unconventional.
Aatma is just another ordinary horror story but with a pinch of fine acting by the lead stars. It is recommended for those who believe in spirits coming to haunt you and execute all fatal shots in order to make your life hell.
On the whole, AATMA stands on a weak script. Besides, there are hardly any scares here. Disappointing!
On a general note, ‘Aatma’ does not belong to the league of those horror films that leave a powerful impact on your mind for days, read: ‘The Exorcist’, ‘Grudge’ recalling a few. Instead, hopefully it will leave you without any fear of the unknown lurking in your heart. Signing off on an optimistic note, ‘Aatma 2’ takes the genre of horror films a notch higher.
