Top Critics' Reviews

EK THI DAAYAN is an imaginative and appealing supernatural thriller. The film is placed in a relatable world, with myths about witches expertly intertwined in its absorbing screenplay, something which a spectator can effortlessly identify with. Exceptionally novel and attention-grabbing, it's a first of its kind. Watch it for the sheer novelty it puts on display in its genre!
Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama.com - April 18, 2013


The film sadly is never greater than the sum of its parts. The makers exploit more than a few age-old superstitions associated with witches, but have nothing particularly new or important to say. It nicely builds up intrigue, but leaves you wanting more in the end.
Rajeev Masand, CNN IBN - April 18, 2013


Ek Thi Daayan throws in a lot of it, though there seems room left for a little more. Impressively though, this is the most unusual Bollywood horror film you might have seen.
Vinayak Chakravorty, India Today - April 18, 2013


This film is far ahead of any of the recent horror films that you have watched. Watch it especially for the performances.
