as it is, there really wasn't any buzz about him anyway. Not online, nor the radio, nor the trailers which were ALL Bipasha!

This might as well be termed "Brand Bipasha"
 
True...they put Bipasha in the forefront of publicity right from the start. But if the movie had Bipasha and some random actor like PZ's IIP it wouldnt have got the opening which Bipasha's movie starring EH can get.
Anyways if the movie does well it will be huge relief for Bipasha.

yeah but who knows.. its not like Emraan's always a sure shot success at the box office, THOUGH he has had an undeniably impressive record

Raaz 3 Has Good Opening

Friday 7th September 2012 13.30 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

Raaz 3 took a good opening of around 50% at multiplexes and 65-70% in single screens on average. The 3D screens recorded better capacity The opening was very good in mass belts like CPCI, Bihar, Rajasthan and Nizam while Mumbai city, Delhi NCR and Punjab recorded lower than 50% occupancies.

The mass belts should ensure a healthy first day total for the film but for a good long run, a pick a up at the bigger circuit multiplexes will be needed.

The music was not as strong as some other Emraan Hashmi starrers but with the film promoted as a film with plenty of horror and sex it has got a very good opening response in mass circuits.

Review: Raaz 3 offers only sleaze, no chills


There is too much clich, too much sleaze and too much predictability in Vikram Bhatt's [ Images ] Raaz [ Images ] 3, writes Preeti Arora.

Pioneer of recent films such as Haunted and Dangerous Ishqq -- both of which were critically received quite badly -- Vikram Bhatt doesn't really qualify as an auteur. And Bipasha Basu [ Images ] and Emraan Hashmi [ Images ] aren't exactly in the running for an Oscar either.


So what would you get when you pair a rather mediocre director with a couple of mediocre actors? No prizes for guessing, you get a mediocre film; best exemplified among this week's releases by Raaz 3.

Teeming with campy elements of 1990s horror, popularised by American classics like Wishmaster and Faust, Raaz 3 is a typical Vikram Bhatt outing that would do brilliantly in a small town where television shows like Aahat are a rage, if such places still exist. At least, Aahat was scary enough to stir up nightmares in the minds of impressionable children.

Raaz 3's A certification applies, if anything, only to the sleazy sex scenes. The rest of the film could have been slightly scary, if only Vikram Bhatt had bothered to plagiarize things correctly in the first place.

 

Shanaya (Bipasha Basu) is a narcissistic actress, who has trouble coping with her loss of stardom and the success of her younger half-sister Sanjana [ Images ] (Esha Gupta).

 

Shanaya meets an old man one day who takes her to meet an evil spirit which basically leads to a lot of evil things. She seduces her director (Emraan Hashmi), and convinces him (while in bed) to be her ally in the witchcraft she plans on using against her sister.

 

It's only a matter of time before Hashmi seduces Sanjana -- a little after they witness some random character getting beheaded -- and then shifts his allegiance, saving Sanjana's life and becoming the hero.

 

Really, if there's anyone who can use jaadu-tona, kaali-vidya and black magic as bedroom talk, it's Vikram Bhatt; seems like the director has a weird fancy for depicting sexual perversions in his movies. Haunted 3D somehow managed to turn the sex drive of a ghost hell bent on raping an innocent girl into the premise of a whole movie.

 

In Raaz 3, probably the most repelling scene is when Taradutt, a 'pret-aatma' who looks like an exhumed corpse, propositions Bipasha Basu to sleep with him... and she accepts. There is a very sincere attempt at constructing more stylized, urbane characters with 'F' words making appearances in the dialogue every now and then. Only, it sounds corny.

 

These sexual bizarre-isms aside, there is a fundamental flaw that pervades most of Vikram Bhatt's work. His films lack reason. Things just seem to happen from out of nowhere either for the sake of convenience.

 

There is a serious dearth of anything creative, genuine or even mildly engaging in Raaz 3. Too much clich, too much sleaze, too much predictability and too much of everything that makes a bad movie.

 

Here's a relevant question for you to think about: Is there something worse than an outright plagiarist? Perhaps someone unoriginal who doesn't realise the limits of their own skill? That is something Vikram Bhatt should seriously consider before he decides to let loose another half baked, corpse-like aatma on us.

 

Rediff Rating:1 and 1/2 Stars

Raaz 3 Is Super Strong At Single Screens

Friday 7th September 2012 17.30 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

Raaz 3 is doing excellent business at single screens across the country. The opening at single screens in West Bengal, Bihar, CP Berar, CI, Rajasthan and Nizam is better than all films this year apart from Ek Tha Tiger, Agneepath and Rowdy Rathore.

The opening range at single screens in these belts is 70-100% over the noon and matinees shows. The film is not too strong in Mumbai city, Mysore and the high end multiplexes of Delhi NCR.

The film should beat Jannat 2 as Emraan Hashmi's biggest opener though with 20% more screens and 3D format. Jannat 2 had collected 8.25 crore nett.

Raaz 3 Movie Review: A totally watchable masala horror flick!


The film does all it said it would and Raaz 3, starring Bipasha Basu, Esha Gupta and Emraan Hashmi is paisa vasool…with popcorn to add more crunch! Read review to find out more

The latest horror movie from the Bhatt camp delivers what it promised to: a decent, edge of the seat thriller that is low on sleaze and heavy on content, a tale of a star driven by jealousy, special effects and black magic! It's a bit predictable, yet manages to surprise with well placed special effects and a strong story. The main grouse is that the 3D seems forced and gimmicky and doesn't work except for in a few key scenes in the film, so if you don't want to risk your eyesight and avoid a nasty headache, watch it in regular 2D.

The third installment in the Raaz series is a poorly made, but well told horror story set in a filmi milieu. Down-on-her-luck actress Shanaya (Bipasha Basu) coaxes her director boyfriend Aditya (Emraan Hashmi) to mess with rising actress Sanjana's (Esha Gupta) career by doing black magic on her. Shanaya literally signs a pact with the devil and makes Aditya, who is directing a film with Sanjana as the star, spike her with 'magic water'. Aditya goes along with the stunt, but cannot play for long, calling it quits when he realises that the black magic is really taking a toll on Sanjana's health. When Aditya tries to call it off, Shanaya plays all the tricks in her 'vamp' bag and manages to successfully end Sanjana's career in a scene rich with well used special effects. Aditya, as the hero of the film, acts on his conscience and tried to end the whole drama, but it's too late by then and Sanjana has gone too far into the murky spirit world to be saved.

The horror in the film taps into the black magic stories we've all heard and manages to evoke a few gasps. The ghosts fail miserably, yet the story is strong and convincing enough to carry the movie. The vamp act comes naturally to Bipasha and she manages her role as a jealous star as well as she can! Esha, however, is just a pretty face in the film and needs to put in some serious work on her acting skills, but since she is knocked out cold in a good part of the film, it saves you suffering her hamming act on screen for too long, in 3D too! Emraan, on the other hand, does a good job, but it is evident that he's struggling to move out of the Bhatt camp and use his talent elsewhere. The Bhatts have toned down the sleaze and focussed more on the story instead this time around, which may disappoint audiences, since the Raaz franchise is known for its steamy sequences – though perhaps Jism does it better – and it's a good call they take.

All in all, Raaz 3 is cheesy and immature, though an entirely watchable Bollywood horror flick that is well worth the tickets and price of popcorn!

Rating: 3/5
