Synopsis: Three friends who meet at a college reunion accept a bet by their old classmate to get proof of the existence of ghosts.

Movie Review: As in comedy, timing is crucial for horror films as well but in Aaah all we get are mistimed reaction shots and indifferent dialogue delivery that take away the thrills in a scene. Sure, the setup is interesting — three friends meet at their reunion and one of their classmates challenges that he will give away half his fortune (worth Rs 60 crore) if the trio gets him proof of the existence of ghosts. So, the three begin a hunt for instances of ghost attacks that takes them on a globetrotting spree.

The variety in the type of horror, too, is exciting — a haunted boat in the middle of the sea, a hospital in Japan, a jinn in the deserts of Dubai, a lonely ATM booth and finally, a deserted highway and a haunted DVD. But how these individual episodes are constructed is very similar. We're first told what happened earlier (usually through someone narrating the event as flashback) and then, the trio gets a taste of the horror. And, only in the last episode do we get the sense that these three characters are in mortal danger. Otherwise, their encounters with the various ghosts are all quite harmless and lack any sense of dread.

The acting is often amateurish and only in the episode involving MS Bhaskar and Bosskey do we get some credible performances. Both Gokulnath and Meghna are artificial while Bala Saravanan's wisecracks don't really crack us up. Meanwhile, poor Simhaa is made to throw some attitude but it only comes across as fake. Often, we are able to realize that it's all make believe and it is the editing and score that is creating the tension.
