Great plot wasted by too long torture part

The plot was good. The middle part (torture part) of the movie was stretched too long. It was boring and people were yawning. Audience enjoys horror NOT torture. Ajay Devgan films didn't realise that. Despite being a great actor Madhavan was not fitting for the role of that Tantric.

Rest of the actors' acting was good.

Villian could have been serious. The climax could have been shown with much more screen time. But they kept on showing how the girl was tortured and how she tortured the family for long. People lost interest then.

Audience were expecting more horror which was not there at all....

Ruined Potential and Good Story through mediocre Production

"Shaitaan (2024)" initially captivates audiences with promising natural performances, particularly from Aadhav. However, as the film progresses, it falters in its execution, particularly in the last third. Despite commendable acting, notably from Madhavan, Ajay Devgn's lackluster portrayal detracts from the overall experience. The film's direction suffers from evident low effort and budget constraints, leading to technical and editing issues, which ultimately hinder the film's coherence. The drawn-out climax further exacerbates these flaws, diluting the essence of the movie's fitness narrative. While "Shaitaan" shows potential, especially in its early stages, its inability to deliver a cohesive and satisfying conclusion leaves much to be desired.

It could have been much better. Lazy Bollywood.

The high points of the movie are all in the trailer. You feel like cheated. I will tell you my problems (Spoilers ahead): 1. Ajay devgan character being a father is so passive. Your daughter is trapped by a man in front of you. He don't react, just make schemes. If he could have been active and involved fully, like showed anger when he first time come to know vashikaran but hell no, our guy is standing and processing it like a cpu.

2. They streched too much on vashikaran. Like 80% is the madhvan tourtouring the girl.

3. Ending is crap, he recorded madhvan voice to remove vashikaran. Really, you think there is no mantra, or brain/telepathy involved here. As far as I understand, it's the will of the guy who did vashikaran you follow not the tongue.

4. They completely copied vash story, made it on big budget and did some ending change and served us.

5. On very plot point, the high point of the plot you already have seen in trailer. It feel so bad. Saari movie trailer main dikha di. Like fooling the public. Nothing more is in movie. You feel kuch to chod dete movie k lie.

Overall, I ll say movie is not bad. But could have been much much better. They had very good plot. But their treatment is hell lazy. Nothing good is done on vash. So it comes out bad than vash. Like I ll tell you who ever will see this movie can give 10 good ideas for the story.
