Emraan Hashmi, Nikita Dutta in Dybbuk

Jay K directed and wrote the video, which was launched on Amazon Prime Video today, October 29.

On October 29, Amazon Prime Video released the new horror flick Dybbuk. The horror thriller is directed by Jay K and is an official adaptation of the 2017 Malayalam film Ezra, which featured Prithviraj Sukumaran and Priya Anand. Emraan Hashmi and Nikita Dutta feature in the key roles of Dybbuk. Emraan Hashmi, Nikita Dutta, Manav Kaul, and Denzil Smith play significant parts in the film. Emraan Hashmi, who has been in a number of horror films, was well-prepared for his role. Nikita, who played Mahi, was the main character in the film. We wished we had seen more of her. As the rabbi, Manav Kaul, a wonderful actor, strove hard to persuade us.

Mahi, Nikita’s sister, who is still recovering from a loss, chooses to refurbish her ancient villa with a historical theme. She goes to the local antique shop and buys an ancient wine cabinet that turns out to be a dybbuk. I’m not sure why Mahi chose the uninteresting and bland dybbuk box out of all the wonderful treasures at the antique shop. That is a mystery in and of itself, which was not resolved in the film. Nikita is a disembodied human spirit and travels restlessly until it takes on the body of a living person, according to Jewish legend. In 16th and 17th century Eastern Europe, belief in such ghosts was especially widespread. Dybbuk is derived from the Hebrew word dibbuq, which means “to stay.” Fans of horror films will enjoy reading about Jewish legend, but the Emraan Hashmi-starrer fails to captivate its audience.

Dybbuk’s narrative is light on horror and heavy on done-to-death jolts. The picture is predictable, with several twists that have previously been seen in Hollywood horror films. While viewing Dybbuk, the audience, who enjoy horror films, could start clicking boxes. Check for a creepy maid, a ghost slithering beneath the cover, and, of course, flying folks.

As a filmmaker reconstructing his own picture, it takes incredible bravery to recreate it shot-for-shot. It’s reasonable to assume that the storyline would be improved or refined in some way.

If you have some free time this weekend, consider watching this horror flick, which may help you sleep. The audience will undoubtedly be disappointed by the dybbuk box’s unhappy soul.
