Trailer: Emraan Hashmi’s ‘Raaz Reboot’ tries hard to be spooky


The trailer of ‘Raaz Reboot’ starring Emraan Hashmi, Kriti Kharbanda and Gaurav Arora has been released. The movie is the fourth instalment of the hit horror franchise ‘Raaz’ which featured actors like Bipasha Basu, Dino Morea, Esha Gupta and Kangana Ranaut, besides Emraan, in its previous films.

Kriti and Gaurav play the role of a much-in-love couple who move to a beautiful house in Romania, but the house turns out to be haunted. However, when Kriti tells her on-screen husband Gaurav about it, he refuses to believe her. He is also not willing to move out of the haunted place as his company has already paid six months’ security for the place.  

Enters Emraan who seems to be in love with Kriti, who left him for his misdoings. But he wants to help her and tells her that her husband is hiding something from her. But she is unable to trust him. On the other hand, Gaurav says that Emraan always wanted Kriti back in his life and that is why he was scaring her as a spirit.

With glimpses of horror elements like a raven hovering, dark shadows, deserted streets and spooky sounds, the trailer tries to give chills, but fails. Rather, it has some cozy scenes between Kriti and Gaurav and with Emraan. ‘Raaz Reboot’ hasn’t got anything new that the audience hasn’t seen before in horror movies.

Like the first film ‘Raaz’ in 2002 starring Bipasha and Dino, music plays a significant part of the upcoming film where romance and horror come together.

Directed by Vikram Bhatt, the film marks the debut of Kriti, while Gaurav has already made his debut with the director’s ‘Love Games’ that released a few months ago. Emraan had previously featured in ‘Raaz 2’ opposite Kangana, and ‘Raaz 3’ opposite Esha and Bipasha.

‘Raaz Reboot’ is slated to release on September 16.
