What's it about
Six city students take refuge in deserted ruins when stranded on a highway, and start telling each other scary stories to keep amused. The stories include: A husband trying to scare his wife; a man stuck at a creepy "healthy hotel"; a school teacher spooked by a child's homework; a housewife scared of apples;a bizarre lift on a freeway; and a college kid with an unusual power.
'Darna Mana Hai' is the first Horror Anthology ever in Indian Cinema and is the best one compared to the other two (one being a Sequel to this movie).The movie has an ensemble cast with Stars like Saif Ali Khan,Vivek Oberoi,Nana Paterkar & Boman Irani. The Cast has some immense talent and each segment is very well acted.Coming to the segments of the movie,each segment does offer something fresh starting from Ghosts in Swamps to a Bizarre story of Apples.For the first time a movie from 'RGV' factory tries to scare the audience without the use of Sound effects and does it very convincingly.Segments like 'No Smoking' and 'Stop/move' draw inspirations from Hollywood flicks 'Psycho' and 'Click' but stay original. Prawaal Raman does a great job managing seven stories to complement each other and to maintain a good pace. 'Darna Mana Hai' paved path for a whole new sub-genre in Bollywood which only ended up with two more movies. On the whole 'Darna Mana Hai' is a must watch for every Horror fan(more or less). And there is no "Dance and songs" in this Bollywood movie!!!!!!
