404 is a 2011 Hindi psychological thriller film released on 20 May 2011, written and directed by Prawaal Raman, starring Imaad Shah, Nishikant Kamat, Rajvvir Aroraa, Tisca Chopra and Satish Kaushik in lead roles. It is produced under Imagik Media Private Ltd. (Nameeta Nair) Banner.

Plot[edit]

Professor Anirudh (Nishikant Kamath) strongly believes in science and for him things which don’t have scientific explanation do not exist. A room in his Medical Institution (the room with number 404) is rumoured to be haunted by the ghost of a student who previously stayed in that room and had committed suicide there, which he surely doesn’t believe. A rational student Abhimanyu (Rajvvir Aroraa) occupies that room and the real story starts. Abhimanyu experiences the unusual and now has to choose between what to believe and what not. Despite evidence suggesting a rational explanation to the physical events following up to the climax, the movie closes open-endedly, leaving a supernatural explanation equally likely.[2]

Cast[edit]

Reception[edit]

The film was given 4/5 stars by The Times of India.[3][4] Taran Adarsh comments that it is a new age thriller with a taut screenplay, riveting direction and applaud-worthy performances. Dainik Bhaskar gave it a 4.5/5 star saying (actually in Hindi) that, "If you're not a fool....you will not miss the movie." Mr. Omar from 'The Omar review show' which comes on Zoom TV gave it an 4.5/5 saying that, "If you are having plans to see a senseful Indian film which is better than the hollywood it's this." Taran Adarsh gave it 5/5 saying, "We don't know that Indians like these type of movie or not but America will love this, even though it will not gross good in America (because of being a movie not from their country.) then also if any american would see it will think that the Hollywood is nothing in front of bollywood." [5]
