Movie Review: Amavas – Ali Asgar Is The Only Saving Grace


Amavas is all about rich businessman Karan Ajmera (Sachin Joshi) and his girlfriend Ahana (Nargis Fakhri). They are on a vacation in Karan’s summer mansion in remote Europe, where he is planning to propose marriage to Ahana.

We get to meet Karan’s friend, Maya (Navneet Kaur Dhillon) and Sameer (Vivan Bhatena). The lovely mansion has Goti (Ali Asgar), who is a butler, caretaker and is a laugh riot.

All is well, but the vacation turns into a nightmare for a couple, as they battle supernatural forces. In walks a psychiatrist Shivani (Mona Singh), and then we are thrown to some bizarre scenes which finally lead to the climax.

The first half of Amavas has nothing to offer, while the second half is stuffed with too much. Songs come in and go and will often make you tear your hair and they add nothing to the narrative. If the story is shocking, the dialogues of Amavas will kill you.

However, the most frightening or scary thing about Amavas is not the ghost, but the acting skills of both Sachiin Joshi and Nargis Fakhri. Both are wooden and our out there to outdo each other.

What is shocking is the fact that Amavas has been helmed by Bhushan Patel who has belted out films like 1920: Evil Returns, Ragini MMS 2 and Alone. The finale is all over the place, it’s illogical and last but not the least it’s tacky.

Amavas is laced with loads of illogical scenes and a ghost which is extremely predictable. The film is actually a torturous two-hour ride. However, Ali Asgar is the only one you can sit through this film. He is fun and will for sure make you smile.

All in all, Amavas is one film that should not be watched, not even if offered for free. Avoid this one for sure.

Rating: Half Star
