As soon as the film gets over, the first thing that comes to your mind is ‘mazaa nahin aaya’.
The latest film in the Conjuring series takes place in the year 1952. It begins with two nuns trying to defeat an evil spirit. This happens in a secluded monastery in the mountains of Romania. The evil spirit kills one nun and the other one ends her life with a key in her hand. Her body is discovered by a young villager named Frenchie (Jonas Bloquet) as he lands there to leave supplies. When the Vatican comes to know of the death, it sends Father Burke (Demián Bichir) to investigate. Father Burke is aided by novitiate Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga) to get to the bottom of the eerie happenings.
There are many innovative scenes like the one in which a candle is lit up on its own or like the one in which many grave bells start ringing at the same time. But these scenes are few and far between. You really aren’t spooked out that much. Even the back story and the climax don’t add much value. The humor, mostly arising because of Frenchie’s behavior and dialogues, is great.
Jonas Bloquet delivers a good performance. Taissa Farmiga & Demián Bichir are fine.
So The Nun works but only in a few portions. We give it 2 stars with no kinks.
