There was only one thing that the makers of the movie Posham Pa got right, and that was its name. I do not know why they chose it or what its significance was, but it is catchy for a movie name. The only relevance I could think of what that Posham Pa is a game that little girls play and the movie tells you the story of 2 sisters. Unfortunately, except for a catchy name, there is absolutely nothing good about Posham Pa. This movie is a disaster at so many levels that it is hard to even put it in words. If it was not for posting this review, I do not think I could have watched this movie in full. No one can. You will turn it off within the first 10-15 minutes into the movie.
Posham Pa is a movie directed by Suman Mukhopadhyay featuring Ragini Khanna, Imaad Shah and Mahie Gill. It is now streaming on ZEE5. The movie tells the story of convicted notorious serial killers Seema Gavit and Renuka Shinde, who went on a rampage across Maharashtra, kidnapping children for their pick-pocketing ring, and then mercilessly murdering them. Yes, it is based on a true story but that does not make it any good.
Posham Pa Movie Review
So what is good about this movie? Absolutely nothing. Imagine it like this. A couple of kids in the school read the story of the serial killer sisters and were intrigued by it. Over their summer vacation, they bought a camera (or a cell-phone camera, doesn’t matter) and decided to make a movie about it. They have absolutely no idea what direction is, what acting is, what a script means. They are just kids fooling around with a camera. That is Posham Pa for you. Acting of everyone in the movie is so horrible that it is laughable. Everyone involved with this movie should actually be ashamed of themselves. Who the hell this director Suman Mukhopadhyay is and what did we ever do to him? He should be tried in the court for imposing a movie like Posham Pa on the world.
By the time the movie ends, you will be asking yourself questions like, why the hell did an actress like Mahie Gill do this movie? Did they even watch it before finally releasing it? This movie steals ideas from a popular Netflix Show called Mindhunter which is a very clever and classic show about serial killers. Posham Pa on the other hand is a mishmash that has no idea where the story was headed. They could not even put the shot sequence in the right order. I just knew something was happening on the screen but had no idea what or why it was happening.
There was really so much that they could have done with this story but bad storytelling, horrible acting and poor direction just turned this into a useless attempt at suspense. Even with a run-time of just over an hour, Posham Pa concurrently still feels like a drag. Let me summarize it by just saying two words, “Avoid It”. It is a movie with no head and tail and just tries to run for 90 minutes towards a weird and twist ending. If you do want to watch a thriller then give Mindhunter on Netflix a try. You will love it.
