The film has been unsettling audiences from the very onset of its promotions. The makers have maintained to scare as well as create a suspense around the film. Anushka Sharma has taken a big leap of faith with this character and we believe it was worth it.

Pari Movie Review
Somehow our Horror movies could not cross beyond a parameter. Pari will not scare you like Conjuring or Annabelle, but can unsettle you for sure. It is definitely not a fairytale.
It has surely come far from it predecessors’ Horror meets seduction formula. After ages, we come across a genuine horror film.
Anushka Sharma has portrayed a victim of a supernatural form of abuse with par excellence. You feel for her but you will be scared from as well. Parambrata Chatterjee and Rajat Kapoor have played the key characters with utmost finesse. We can’t really flaw any of the actors.
The film looses it grip and can’t come up from the regular scare tactics. Romance between Parambrata and Ritabhari Chakraborty seems forced upon the movie. The usual mix of melodrama in the climax can rips the edge that was maintained throughout.
Overall the film balances between a winsome – losesome situations.
