From the year 2013, Bejoy Nambiar has been at it with films like David, then Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi and now Pizza. Well what can we say. Best is to now stay away from his kind of cinema because they are just a waste of time, money and energy.
Pizza is all about Kunal (Akshay Oberoi) who is a pizza delivery boy who happens to have disbelief in spirits and ghosts. But one chance encounter during a delivery changes everything.
Kunal (Akshay Oberoi) works as pizza delivery boy and lives with his wife Nikita (Parvathy Omanakuttan) who is a writer by profession, and specializes in writing horror thrillers. The constant aura of spooky runs their house. Kunal experiences the thrill of ghosts that his wife keeps rambling about when he gets trapped in a haunted house, when he goes to deliver a pizza.
Traumatized by the incidents and marred by experience, Kunal ends up losing his mental peace, his calm demeanor and even his wife who goes missing. Is she dead or is she possessed by the spirits, trapped in the same house, something that Kunal needs to find out.
A remake of the surprise Tamil hit of the same name, the film proves a point. That successful horror doesn’t need stars, it needs a solid script, and atmospherics. The bodies with axes jutting out, the trail of bloody feet, the wriggly maggots in the pizza, are all to the good, but the story-telling needed to have been better. Wish the makes worked on the script as the film just lacks that.
Akshay Oberoi is as wooden and expressionless as one can be. He at no point seemed breathlessly scared or painfully traumatized. The plain look on his face was all he could give throughout the film. Parvathy Omanakuttan should stick to ramp shows and forget acting. Rajesh Sharma, who essays the role of Kunal’s boss is passable, though one has seen him in better roles.
Dipannita Sharma and Arunoday Singh both have fleeting presence in the film and I am still thinking what did they actually agree to be a part of the film.
The climax sequence leaves the audiences wondering if they have been fooled. To some extent, it adds to the fun value in this otherwise intense horrible, oops horror drama.
Better to eat a Pizza rather then watch it.
