1920 London Review

Where has our talented Sharman Joshi got lost? A stalwart like Sharman Joshi seriously needs to contemplate on his choice of films after the tacky Hate Story 3 and now this! 1920 London which released on the big screens today is a sure shot miss and we'll tell you why.

This supernatural thriller is so exhausting that the viewers may contemplate laying down their souls for her. For that would mean the torture in disguise, of a horror film-meets-unrequited love story would mercifully end. 1920 London is the third installment of the 1920 series but we are simply bored with the cliche.

The gore fest begins when Shivangi (Meera Chopra), a London-based princess from a Rajasthani royal family, who goes home to find an exorcist. Her husband is ill and she believes that his body has been possessed by an evil spirit. The only man who can save her is her ex-lover, Jai. He is a shepherd-turned-exorcist. It is 1920, so a bit of poetic license is allowed. Class and caste differences drove Jai and Shivangi apart, and he paid a heavy price for falling in love with royalty. The first half is a bit interesting but the second half has messed it entirely. Director Tinu Suresh Desai seems to have faltered when it comes to casting and keeping the story together. Chopra, who plays the devout wife who’s also torn about her failed love affair, gives a poor performance. Songs that are inserted at regular intervals don’t offer interest and just meant for torture.

1920 London gets a 1 star rating and you certainly can miss out on it.
