Dhund is comaback film for Ramsays who have been making the horror flick over the period. It is directed by Shyam Ramsay. Samir (Amar Upadhyay) is in love with Simran (Aditi Govitrikar), a model by profession and his friend Kunal (Apoorva Agnihotri) is in love with Kajal (Divya Palat). Simran is all set to take part in a beauty pageant, but Ajit Khurana (Irfan) warns her against doing so, since he wants his sister (Shweta Menon) to win the title.

But Simran is adamant. Angry Ajit Khurana vows to take the revenge. He attacks her, but Simran and her cousin Kajal murder him in the ensuing melee. Samir and Kunal dump Khurana`s body in the car and later in the swimming pool. But Khurana returns from the dead and hence starts the screams and shouts.

The film losely take the inspiration from the Hollywood thriller I know whar you did last summer. But it doesn`t scare as the earlier Ramsay films. The story is weak and is, at no point, scary. The The novelty is missing. Music by Viju Shah is boring. The background score is a straight lift from Alfred Hitchcock`s Psycho.

Director Shyam Ramsay does holds the interest of the audience in bits and pieces. Amar Upadhyay tries hard as a Hero but he is just ordinary. Aditi Govitrikar looks beautiful and scared but lacks screen presence.Divya Palat needs to work on their acting skills. Irfan does well. Gulshan Grover and Prem Chopra are wasted. On the whole, you can call Dhund – The Fog a thriller which fails to thrill.
