Dobaara is the official Hindi Remake of the 2013 acclaimed psychological horror “Oculus“. The
film is an emotional journey of Natasha Merchant (Huma) and Kabeer Merchant (Saqib) dealing
with the death of their parents, Alex Merchant (Adil Hussain) and Lisa Merchant (Lisa Ray) a
decade ago .
Natasha believes that it’s the paranormal mirror which is responsible for their deaths and is
adamant to prove her brother’s innocence to the world, who has been in a juvenile correctional
facility for 10 years, as an accused in the murder of his parents.
The only thing on her mind, as the brother comes out of the correctional facility, after a decade, is
to redeem him of the crime and prove that it’s the mirror which has caused the deaths. Kabeer
does not agree with his sister Natasha’s theory and believes that he killed his father while saving
Join the Merchant family on a revelation through time as we alternate between the past and the
present to uncover the truth. Illusions, bizarre occurrences and the presence of someone in Alex’s
study certainly cast doubt on the credibility of the mirror. Alex’s alleged affair with Ana, a seductive
and passionate woman in his study, who convinces Alex that he is capable of accomplishing a lot
but being held back by his incompetent family – and Lisa’s resolve to protect her children through
his phases of madness – are these the signs of a dysfunctional family or a haunted mirror
wreaking havoc in their lives?
Witness a world where the past and the present merge, a paranormal world where the brother and
sister are gradually trapped, a world of deception where the illusion and reality cease to be any
different. It’s an experiment where the paranormal takes charge defying science or any logic.
Sometimes the past is best left undisturbed, untouched and in the past. But then again…Those
who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
