The supporting actors – Shernaz Patel, Tilottama Shome, Jaideep Ahlawat, Darshan Jariwala, et al – are all competent performers but they can only be as good as the screenplay allows them to be. Aatma is meant to send shivers down the spine and shock the v

Aatma neither scares you not entertains. Lack of spine chilling moments and wafer-thin of the story totally ruin Aatma's chances.

Under the banner Wide Frame Pictures, this one convinced the public to be assorted and mismated from the other horror films made in Bollywood that leave the audiences just with a laughter of comedy.

India Glitz
A mother trying to shield her daughter from her separated and deceased husband is an interesting plot but a horror movie is driven by its spooky moments and making everyone experience & feel False Evidence Appearing Real (FEAR).

The thriller horror is barely spine-chilling. Instead, the film is a laughter fest.

On the whole, Aatma lacks the excitement and chills of a thriller and does not even have haunting melodies or hit music to make up for the little entertainment value it offers. It will, therefore, not be able to make its mark at the box-office. Its poor o
