This Evil Never Returns

By Shivom Oza, MovieTalkies.com, 02 November 2012 1.5 / 5

1920 - Evil Returns – In Brief
A sequel to the 2008 horror film 1920, 1920 - Evil Returns revolves around the love story between a poet Jaidev Verma and a young violin teacher Smruti. Although the two have never seen each other, their love story blossoms through the letters, filled with romantic poetry, which they send each other. However, Smruti gets possessed by an evil spirit!

1920 - Evil Returns – Verdict
This film gets just about everything wrong. The dialogues, in particular, are laughably bad. The acting doesn't salvage anything either. Tia Bajpai tries hard to look convincing as the possessed girl but her performance gets overshadowed by the bizarre screenplay. 

1920 - Evil Returns – Short Plot
Renowned poet Jaidev Verma (Aftab Shivdasani) is deeply in love with a young violin teacher Smruti (Tia Bajpai). The problem is that he has never seen her before. So, the two lovers keep in touch through letters. An unexpected situation leads to Smruti getting possessed by an evil spirit. Somehow, she lands up at Jaidev's house. However, since she has lost her memory there's no way either Jaidev or she will know who the other person is. The evil spirit, who eventually turns out to be Jaidev's old friend Amar, wreaks havoc all over. She spits nails, levitates in the air, and gets fits and the usual razzmatazz.

So you have the tantrik, doctor, concerned family members, suspecting maidservants lined up. All of them have their own take on how to get rid of the 'evil spirit'. The inane plot is filled with silly dialogues. Some will make you guffaw, but after a while, it gets to your nerves. The first-half is still bearable, notwithstanding the stupefying lines and the unwanted Sufiyana ballads. However, the second half tests your patience to the core and completely annihilates all your hopes to the 'point of no return'. The premise is like any other Bollywood horror film. Over the last few years, a new genre has come up. It is called the 'Unintentionally funny horror film with sexual undertones'. Vidya Malavade, who plays Jaidev Verma's sister Karuna, delivers an appalling performance. For a moment, you would still blame the writers. But then, going by record in Hindi films post the brilliant Chak De India, she is just not up to it. Aftab Shivdasani tries hard to look serious while doing inexplicable things on screen, but fails miserably. Tia Bajpai delivers a fine performance as the possessed girl, but the story and the screenplay is way too absurd to accommodate her efforts. It's a badly written 'horror film'. Filled with unintentional laughs, the 'scary' scenes lack the thrill.

1920 - Evil Returns – Technical

Writing, as already mentioned, is quite bizarre. The bad acting doesn't leave any stone unturned either. Bhushan Patel repeats the same formula that Vikram Bhatt films are known for. Although such films work with the masses, ideally, there should be something 'horrific' about a horror film. The horror, over here, lies in the script. Music by Chirantan Bhatt is average with no memorable track in the entire film. The film has been shot well by Naren Gedia. The gorgeous locales at Sweden up the visual quotient of the film considerably.

1920 - Evil Returns – Final Word
The film is nothing like 1920. In all probability, the evil shall not return again.

Chirantan Gets It Right, Vikram Ishtyle!

By Reflections, MovieTalkies.com, 19 October 2012 3 / 5

1920 Evil Returns is a supernatural horror thriller coming from the banner of Vikram Bhatt and hence there are very good expectations from the soundtrack. Thankfully, music of the film is very well composed by Chitrantan Bhatt who is also known for some fabulous work he did in Haunted. The album has in total five tracks with vocals by Sonu Nigam, Arijit Singh, K.K, Suzanne Dmello, Amit Mishra and Mahalakshmi Iyer and lyrics penned by Shakeel Azmi, Junaid Wasi and Manoj Yadav.

 
The album starts with the track Apnaa Mujhe Tu Lagaa in the melodious and charismatic vocals of Sonu Nigam. This one is a slow number which really turns out to be a pleasant outing. Music arrangements are very smooth and magnificent which touch deep within. Lyrics penned by the lyricist Shakeel Azmi deserve a special mention.
 
Uska Hi Banana is a treat to the ears which very aptly and appropriately narrates the feelings and emotions of a person who wants to take all the pains and hardships of his beloved. The vocals of this number which are well ornamented by Arijit Singh are immensely captivating and appealing. Add to that some good amalgamation of musical arrangements and the song further comes out trumps. Lyricist Junaid Wasi's words are quite attractive and alluring as well. Altogether, this is one composition one would like to play over and over again.
 
K.K makes an entry in the album with the next track Jaavedaan Hai. This one is as addictive and soulful as the previous two tracks of the album. The music composed by the composer is typical Bhatt camp music while Suzanne D'Mello's presence is well justified in this passionate outing. This Shakeel Azmi written track would certainly do well in the movie as it very suitably and rightly fits its setting.
 
The album is carried ahead with Khud Ko Tere, a solo outing by Mahalakshmi Iyer. This one is an average number from the 90s eta. The track has a very Nadeem-Shravan feel to it and lyrics penned by Azmi make you believe that further.
 
The album concludes with the situational track Majboor Tu Bhi Kahin that arrives in the vocals of debutant Amit Mishra. The arrangements used in the track are soft and subtle with focus being entirely on the vocals. The chorus in the background is really haunting and evocative which should go well with the movie. Lyrics by Manoj Yadav are filled with grief and melancholy and Amit's voice supports the mood well.
 
Overall, 1920 - Evil Returns offers some good music with the tracks Apna Mujhe Tu Laga and Jaavedaan Hai carrying good potential to be chartbusters. The album is catchy and engaging which further manages to keep the theme of the movie alive.
