Alone Movie Review (Climax Revealed)


STORY: Sanjana is madly in love with Kabir. All she wants is his uninterrupted time. Trouble is, her conjoined twin Anjana also desires exactly the same.

REVIEW: So what happens when conjoined twins Anjana and Sanjana (Bipasha Basu) make the same man, Kabir (Karan Singh Grover) the object of their desire? No prizes for guessing. The sisters end up despising one another and can hardly wait to go their separate ways (pun intended).

Unaware of the undercurrent of this emotion, Kabir, an advertising executive, (who ironically isn't shown doing a single day's work in the film), is working his butt off in Mumbai to give his dear wife Sanjana a luxurious lifestyle. However, wifey-dear is perpetually miffed with him for not spending any time with her. Tut, tut.
The couple feels that their shift from Kerala to Mumbai is pointless if they cannot even spend quality time together. And even though her mother (Neena Gupta) resides there, Sanjana's not keen on returning to Kerala because of some skeletons left behind.

When circumstances take this young couple to a sprawling mansion in God' own country, the spook fest begins.

Inspired by a 2007 Thai film by the same name, this Bollywood adaptation depends too heavily on creaking doors and a shrieking Sanjana to send a chill down your spine. She, who sees ghosts in every nook and corner of her childhood home, psyches herself and her wide-eyed husband. From taking his wife to a spiritual healer to making out with her in the idyllic locales, Kabir does everything in his power to drive away her fears.

When Sanjana saunters into the outhouse where Anjana and she played in their childhood, she is possessed by Anjana's spirit. Post interval, it's the ghost's turn to romance the hero with the chiselled physique. In fact, the ghost lucks out - unlike Sanjana in the first half, the ghost even shares raunchy scenes with Kabir. Till this point, Alone indulges you.

The lovemaking scenes between Bipasha and Karan are racy. The supernatural turn in the conflict between the sisters does give you goosebumps. But the limited expertise of director Bhushan Patel (1920, Evil Returns, Ragini MMS) and actress Bipasha Basu (Raaz, Creature 3D) - in spite of their many ventures in this genre - allows Alone to deliver only superficial chills. The prolonged climax though it is full of twists, leaves you cold because it is too contrived. When you scratch the surface, you don't end up scared shitless. And isn't that what Alone is meant to do?

P.S. Bipasha looks sensuous and Karan Singh Grover makes an interesting big screen debut.

Spoiler alert! Please do not read the following plot summary if you have not seen the film, especially since the film is a horror-thriller.

PLOT SUMMARY

Conjoined twins Anjana and Sanjana (Bipasha Basu) lived by one promise made to each other - 'We will always be together. We will never separate'. Mysterious circumstances lead to the death of Anjana while Sanjana survived. Years later, after Sanjana goes back to her home, with beau Kabir (Karan Singh Grover) the ghost of the dead Anjana comes back to haunt the surviving sister. Why was the promise broken?

Here is how the story begins. Sanjana and Anjana are conjoined at the stomach. Anjana wears spectacles and that is the only way you can tell them apart. The two sisters are very close and are brought up lovingly by their mother Neena Gupta. They live in a sprawling house in Kerala. In school they meet Kabir. Initially they are all friends but as they start growing up, Kabir becomes fond of Sanjana. Kabir even gives Sanjana a necklace with both of their photographs. This makes Anjana wildly jealous.

In fact when Kabir plans to leave for London for his further studies, Sanjana wants to go to the airport to see him off. But since she cannot move without Anjana, she is helpless. She begs Anjana to come along. But the latter refuses. That is the day when Sanjana decides that they will get operated. From then on, the two sisters would naturally be separated.

Several years later Sanjana is in Mumbai. She is married to Kabir and she receives a phone call from Kerala that her mother has had a stroke. Sanjana and Kabir fly to Kerala to see her mother. Here Anjana comes to haunt her. So tormented is Sanjana that she has a miscarriage. Kabir is saddened with the state of affairs and takes Sanjana to a spiritual healer(Zakir Hussain). On his couch, Sanjana reveals some family secrets. However she is not convincing enough. Kabir suspects something is amiss. However he is unable to pin point what it is.

One day Sanjana enters the outhouse where Anjana and she played as children. Here Anjana's spirit enters Sanjana who is left lifeless. From here on Anjana starts living with Kabir in the house. The only person who is suspicious of her is the family Alsatian dog (Leo). Since animals are said to possess ESP (extra sensory perception) Leo realises that the person living in the house with Kabir is not his original mistress but an evil spirit. Even the servants—Mangala(Sulbha Arya) and her daughter-in-law Jaya are suspicious of their mistress.

They decide to do a puja in the house and that's when it comes to light that it is the evil spirit Anjana who is now sleeping with Kabir.

There is a spiritual healer Namit(Zakir Hussain) who also tries to tackle the spirit. There is also another priest who does a major puja to drive the spirit out of Sanjana's body with such mumbo jumbo. They succeed to some degree and just when Kabir is about to heave a sigh of relief, the mystic warns them that there is still one object lying around somewhere close to them that the evil spirit wants. He tells them that unless that object is destroyed, they will never be rid of the spirit fully.

(Do not proceed. Stop reading the plot summary right now if you don't want the crucial climax to be revealed)

SPOILER AHEAD - (CLIMAX)

All through the film you think that Sanjana is the good one and that Anjana is dead. You also believe that during the operation that was done to separate the conjoined twins, Anjana dies. And it is this guilt that Sanjana is carrying with her for life. However in the climax you learn that Sanjana is the one who has died. And she wasn't killed in the operation. She has died earlier. How? It so happens that when Kabir calls from London telling Sanjana that he is coming back to her, a fight breaks out between the twins. In this fight Anjana hits Sanjana and she dies. However their mother bribes the local doctor and so everyone believes that Anjana was killed during the operation. Anjana is very much alive and she has murdered Sanjana.

One of the reasons why Sanjana's spirit is haunting their house is because her dead body is still in the outhouse. It is burnt only in the climax and her soul is freed.

The locket that Kabir gave Sanjana as a memento of his love is also taken away from Anjana , so that Sanjana is now at peace. Anjana begs Kabir to love her the way he loved Sanjana. But he tells her that will never happen. Just because she has the same face, the same features, he cannot love her. He loved Sanju for her good-nature and her character. Not for her physical beauty. Once Anjana realises that she cannot own Kabir, she tries her best to destroy him. She even enters the body of the spiritual healer and attacks him. However Kabir is saved by Sanjana's spirit. The evil Anjana gets consumed by the flames and she dies. And Kabir is left alone, mourning his dear Sanjana.
