Rokkk is the story of two female protagonists, Anushka (Tanushree Dutta) and Ahana (Udita Goswami). Anushka marries an elderly man, Ravi, after the death of his first wife. Her mother is a single, conservative parent who refuses to accept this marriage. However, Anushka’s only help in distress is her sister Ahana. Both Anushka and Ravi begin their journey in a beautiful home purchased by Ravi a couple of years back. Their life is blissful until the day when unexpected turns and twists take place in Anushka’s life.
Director Rajesh Ranshinge makes his debut with an eerie scream called Rokkk. The film has a couple of edge of the seat moments here and there but overall it is just an extension of those small screen episodes little impact. Only deafening sound without a story doesn’t qualify to be called horror film.
Ranshinge has selected a routine and made a routine film. Nonetheless, the climax is effective. Background score and photography are good.
Performance wise, Tanushree Dutta is aptly expressive, especially in frightening scenes. Udita Goswami also does well. Shaad Randhawa needs to work harder. Sachin Khedekar is alright. Murli Sharma and Arif Zakaria support ably.
All said Rokkk is a non-starter.
