It was after a very long debate we — I, Vij, Rajeshattan and Viji — went to watch 13B. Garuda Mall being just in front of our house was an added advantage. We went for a night show and there were hardly any people for the show. When counted, there were only 31 (not 13 ;)) people for the show.

Manohar (R. Madhavan) moves into a new apartment —13B on the 13th floor — with his family. From the first day at their new flat, women are hooked to a new TV show — Sab Khairiyat. The show is about a family eerily similar to their family, who have also just moved into a new house. As the serial unfolds, the incidents that happen in the show start happening to Manohar and his family. Initially, a number of happy events take place and a lot of good things happen, both in the serial and in Manohar’s family. Then things take a turn for the worse and shocking incidents start happening in the serial. The camera work is exceptional, with a brilliant sound and energetic background score. The scenes with the septuagenarian neighbour and his black dog are exceptional, especially the scene when the dog refuses to enter Manohar’s house.

13Though the movie involved us in the proceedings and most importantly, scared as well, certainly, a few questions popped up in our mind. If the television set had to spill the beans towards the end to the culprit, why didn’t it do so to the main protagonist earlier? The album was unearthed from the playground of the garden and how come it wasn’t discovered when the old house gave way to a high-rise apartment?

But yes, after a long time, it was refreshing, a complete paisa vasool film. Of course, paying a whopping price at a multiplex to get scared definitely counts!
