REVIEW: Mumbai 125 Km begins well. Even though it’s formulaic, a haunting background score, effective usage of 3D, especially in the scenes featuring mirrors, decent performances and predominantly a ‘fear of the unknown’ manage to keep you on the edge of your seat. Gripping and atmospheric, just when you think this horror film might actually be able to scare the living daylights out of you, enters ‘lady in white’ Veena Malik and her predictable back-story. As a ghost, her makeup and look are effective, but what doesn’t work is her penchant for flying in the sky like a superman.

Also, the scenes, where clad in lingerie, she makes scandalous statements and then pouts in a bikini take away from the build-up and the creepy mood created in the first half. Her ‘sex appeal’ is made the point of focus as the film progresses and that is absolutely unnecessary. Karanvir Bohra, Vedita Pratap Singh and Vije Bhatia act well.

Unfortunately, Veena Malik is made out to be the show-stealer and she does grab your attention, mostly for the wrong reasons. Overall, this film is somewhat like a Bollywoodised version of the Final Destination series. As horror, it partially works but as a slasher, gets too monotonous and repetitive…old wine in an old bottle.
