Cast: Akshay Oberoi, Parvathy Omanakuttan, Dipannita Sharma
Director: Akshay Akkineni
Both thrills and logic are in short supply in 'Pizza', remake of the 2012 Tamil super-hit about a timid pizza delivery boy and the repercussions of his supposed brush with the supernatural. The fault lies not in the fact that director Akshay Akkineni employs all the usual horror movie tropes to scare you, but in his singularly unimaginative and lazy treatment of the film's themes.
Kunal (Akshay Oberoi) works at a local pizza joint to support himself and his struggling horror novelist wife Nikki (Parvathy Omanakuttan). When he shows up to make a delivery at the home of a pregnant woman (Dipannita Sharma), he quickly finds himself trapped amidst a trio of spirits and every haunted house cliché you can possibly think of.
Despite the 3D, none of this is particularly eerie; the film fails to deliver even a few good ol' fashioned cheap thrills. And the acting by everyone involved is so abysmal it's hard to muster up much sympathy. A twist in the end never feels well-earned, raising even more questions about plausibility. This 'Pizza' is stale.
I'm going with one out of five.
