My Rating: (1.5 / 5)
Very average movie!! The whole movie is picturized inside a big house. An old aged couple had a son named Brahms. They said that he was dead some years ago. Since his death, they got a doll with them and they used to believe that their son was present in the doll.
The parents plan to hire a caretaker for that doll and here the creepy story begins. When the girl comes for the first day of her job, the lady handovers her a list of rules to behave with and treat the doll. Initially, the girl finds it weird but later she gets used to the rules. Now that’s weird.
The movie begins with lots of question marks. Your curiosity will keep on increasing as you go ahead in the movie. But after the second half, the story will start dropping.
The film did not scare me at all. I can say there were some scenes little creepy and unexplained. It did not keep me engaged.
The picturization of the movie is nice. I liked it. But the story base is weak. It did not stand on the viewer’s expectations. The movie had a great chance to become a hit, but the movie turned around in the end. That became slightly sad part in the interesting flow. The Boy part 2 is releasing in 2019. I just hope this would be a nice film.
I would give it as 1.5 out 5
