• Bipasha Basu, despite playing a double role here, offers fewer expressions than Neena Gupta who’s paralyzed for most of the film. The perfunctory ‘hot scenes’ between Bipasha and her muscled co-star can’t seriously be reason enough to invest in a ticket.. You’ll wish you’d stayed home instead.

    Bipasha Basu roams about in negligees and shorts, and tries very hard, but is altogether too manicured to pull off a scare. And the debutant Karan Singh Grover follows the script, but there’s not much anyone can do when the pace is so staid that you want to tell the spirit to hurry it up, willya.

    Watch the movie, for it is rare to sit through a supernatural thriller laughing all the way! No, on a more serious note, just skip it. You can drool over Bipasha or Karan Singh in the comfort of your home later.

    The film gives a few thrills and chills that a horror film does, with its eerie background score and more often the impression of an ambush lurking in the crannies. There are however slip-ups that defy logic and continuity of script. So if you’re one that doesn’t care too much for details and are happy teasing your senses with horror tricks and shocks, this leave-your-brains-at-home horror may appeal to you.

  • Alone is a story that is forced to come together by unknown forces, to which Bhushan Patel contributes very little. There seems to be very little logic or sense of direction behind the scenes, that go on for so long that you feel like you’re watching an Ashutosh Gowariker film.

  • Alone is strictly for those that have an insatiable appetite for cinematic concoctions that serve up the dual dose of sex and horror.

    Stay away if you have had enough of Bips and her deadly on-screen dalliances with the nether world.

    Inspired by a 2007 Thai film by the same name, this Bollywood adaptation depends too heavily on creaking doors and a shrieking Sanjana to send a chill down your spine.

  • Alone at the end is quite a typical Bollywood horror film which will scare you in bits and parts. Of course it’s an achievement it does not get funny since we have a habit of usually taking it lightly considering the primitive effects they used earlier. For its special effects, its not exceptional but does a decent job of giving you minor jerks in the seat.

    A remake of the Thai film of the same name, Alone directed by Bhushan Patel stars Bipasha Basu in a double role as conjoined twins. Excruciatingly painful and frustrating this horror film scares you with boredom rather than fright. Pity you can’t even take a peaceful nap while watching it because someone or the other keeps screaming ever so often minutes.

    To look for logic in a horror film is really a futile attempt. But when a story has umpteen dysfunctions it really becomes hard to invest any emotion into it. The only reason why Alone will work is for its erotic packaging. Those looking for a genuine scary movie will only get bad rehashes of scenes from The Conjuring and other popular Hollywood fare. But if you like Bipasha Basu, and you think Karan Singh Grover is hot, then this film will definitely not give you nightmares.

  • If only he, director Bhushan Patel, had put in as much enthusiasm in the horror portion as he put in the lip-locks, maybe, this would have been a horror film.

    But then again, someone falling in love with a conjoined twin just does not add up.

  • Horror is a six-letter word beginning with a ‘h’ and ending with a ‘r’. Just like humour. ‘Alone’ is worth laughing with too.

    Bipasha Basu tries hard to infuse life in the inert plot. She fails,though we can’t blame her.Even the stunning Kerala locales look listless when weighed against the cartoonish terror and lust of a pair which knows they are getting into the wrong train.

    Forget horror. This is a comedy.

  • It’s better to leave Bipasha Basu’s ‘Alone’ alone. It appears Bipasha Basu signed up for ‘Alone’ not under peer pressure (to do women-centric roles), but because she had way too many skimpy satin lingerie and lacy shorts to showcase. It’s almost like she’s desperate to slip back into her ‘Jism’ days, but unfortunately it worked years ago.

    Alone is an entertaining fare and will do fair business at the box-office. If, in spite of this, it is unable to make profits, it will be due to its ‘for adults only’ certificate because of which recovery from sale of satellite rights will not be substantial.

    To sum it up, with a successful story at hand, Alone could’ve been a real scare-fest had the makers invested in the script and screenplay writers. With the product that it is, the only draw for the audience is Bipasha-Karan’s sizzling chemistry and the music which has already captivated the music lovers.

    If you are a horror film freak, Alone can disappoint you. The film will make you laugh instead of turning out to be a scary experience. Considering this, you can now decide whether to watch it!

  • Plot isn’t so much the point. Most horror movies are about someone who feels the spirit and everyone else who’s unable to believe this. What’s important is Bipasha’s bed begins to fly and the portion where she duels with a dog is quite effective. I hear laughs around me, signifying both nervousness and humour. The hall is half full. Nobody’s alone. This review doesn’t predict box-office figures—it was never meant to. But I suspect the producers won’t be horrified by the results.

    This horrex is at best a one time watch. Watch it if you want to see the sizzling chemistry between Bips and Karan. But, if you are a thrill fan, ‘Alone’ will leave you disappointed.

    Go and watch Alone if you have nothing else to do this weekend. For those who love horror genre, please stay away from this one.

  • This is a below-par film – an unabashed copy, relying on a few lame thrills and the erotica to sail through. Whether it will, is for the audience to decide.

    More than the creaking doors it is the screenplay that needs some urgent oiling.

  • JPN


    ‘Alone’ is one of the finest and slickest horror films ever shot in India. It will help get the genre the credibility it deserves. Bipasha claims that the film is very scary and no one should go alone to watch it.

  • With some genuine scary moments and Bipasha-Karan’s scorching chemistry, Alone stands apart from numerous horrible horror flicks made in the past.

  • If you are a horror movie freak, Alone may be dull for you! Else, it can make up for a decent weekend watch that’ll probably make you laugh more and scare less.
