Unintentionally Funny, Must-Watch Bollywood Movies: Shaapit

I’ll be honest with you. I hadn’t even heard of Shaapit till I went to Adlabs this weekend. And the only reason I watched it is because I couldn’t get tickets to LSD. Pretty depressing, it was. Anyway, there I was, in the hall, with absolutely no knowledge about the movie, the actors, the story, Nothing! But watch Shaapit I did, and I came out a satisfieder person because of it. It’s like they say, when you’re feeling down, there’s nothing like a light-hearted comedy to bring you back up.

      Agreed with this one. I would never ever have gone and watched these movies. But after reading your reviews, they become must-watch on my list. I remember your spoof and have a totally jolly time enjoying the bs.

  6. Mariya says:

    OMFG! I can’t believe you actually sat through the movie!

  7. I am sure movies like this are made for reviewers (occupational hazard) and couples only.

  8. Alpana says:

    The last frame was hilarious. Life makes sense. Kheeehhhkheeee.

  9. Violet says:

  12. Gaurav says:

    Dude you still working on the meme thing…Q No female can has marriage UQ.
    I can has cheezburger…ha ha ha ha

    Q Aivehi UQ was too good.

    Keep them coming.

  13. PRATEEQUE says:

    I managed to watch Shaapit as well…thats because im from a film school like satyajit ray film & television instittute. I think Vikram Bhatt has seriously run out of good ideas and is lifting pages from harry Potter. Aditya narayan’s acting is amateur ish and child like lacks maturity. Its like watching a bad school play!

  14. Mohini says:

    Uou haz suicidal tendencies to view such shit. Good job! No art without pain..

  15. aarkayne says:

    lol….nice laffs..for this early in the morning, as i watch IPL as well…

  16. How i wish u cud have got the tickets for LSD and not suffered the curse urself…

  17. Eashan says:

    Didn’t we agree on it being spelled “aiveen” and not “aivehi” back in Class 11? :)

  18. Zeba says:

    Hilarious post! I especially loved the “Life threatening paper cuts” sequence.

  19. Sajesh says:

    Why is the Mumbai Mirror version different than this one?

    anyways, good job. you save us our bucks and make any dull movie a kickass one. Thanks!

  20. ROFL. had not heard of the movie but awesome review lol. The no-dialogue/silent panels rock like always πŸ˜€
    Last panel *awesome*

  21. Reewa says:

    Love it! sooooo funny !!!! great work again Sahil, keep it up

  22. Shruthi says:

    Was wondering if you’d do this movie. Thank you! :)

    Someone in Chennai actually said something like “decent” with express reference to this film. Ugh!

    “conclusively proving my full-retardedness” LMFAO!!!

  23. ratish says:

    Great post as usual, the after parties n reunions take the cake….
    I’m gonna drown your best friend in the bath tub… why??… Aivehi!!Simply brilliant

  24. Shashwat says:

    Stop the After party and Sholay reunion for a while, it is getting a bit monotonous…
    Please “suffer” through more movies! Another Brilliant post!

  25. Priyanka says:

  35. Vidooshak says:

    Sometimes the jokes are so far out, tempted to watch the movie just to verify that the plot hole was actually THAT big!!! You have given this movie more than its deserved share of publicity. Dying to see your spoof on LSD….

    By the way, check out this blog that reminded me of yours. One-man effort, same as you:

  42. Sriram says:

    After I read your review, I googled this movie and found the following review. All I can say is you are a bollywood drohi!!! See how the following review contradicts your’s. For example:

    “Vikram Bhatt’s β€˜Shaapit’ has a certain coherence and clarity generally denied to the horror genre”

    “The research on spirits and ghosts that underlines the story of a boy in love and his efforts to liberate his object of adoration from a 300-year-old family curse includes scholarly interpretations of witchcraft, sorcery and other spiritual know-how.” Spiritual know-how; I don’t even know WTF spiritual know-how means.

    Example of a double negative in the review: “While on one hand, you appreciate the trouble taken to transport the horror genre beyond pedestrian scares, the effort to add an academic dimension to the terror often hampers the free flow of the fear.”

    For further such know-how enhancing information on the movie please go to http://www.masala.com/19980-shaapit-movie-review.

  43. Spiritsdonthavenames says:

    Is this an actual movie? Or did you just make up the plot (?) out of thin air?

  44. Rahul says:

    Definitely the best India related website. You are a genius.

  45. kichoo Rafael says:

    hey Sahil….LOVEEEEE u

  46. Prithvi says:

    hey, the Mirror version is not half as much fun. Dont let them edit it or transpose it etc. or, just leave it as a web version, no print. the mirror one sucks.
