In the turmoil that follows he decides to sack the manager RUBY, a 29-year-old seductress with whom he has been having an affair that affects his personal as well as his professional life. After a day of ultimate stress Joy finally decides to finish off all his paperwork and stand proud in front of his partners for a board meeting that will definitely change his life. Almost after 5 hours of the firing incident, the final two hours in the office is a stressful event. The real time depiction of the horrific time spent by JOY at the empty office filled with the curse of people who have been recently fired ... Written by Anonymous

Underrated & Misunderstood
8 September 2013 | by abhik-gupta2011See all my reviews

To be frank, it IS a little surreal to find Rahul Bose of all people in a horror movie with generous amounts of gore. But, it did feel really good. Fired is more of psychological horror rather than a straight gory ghost movie. In fact, I am pretty certain it isn't a ghost movie at all.

The movie might be a little too much for most people to swallow- but believe you me, it is born of the same cloth as The Others, Memento and No Smoking. Rahul Bose is good as ever- in fact, he is the omnipresent character throughout the movie and the supporting actors (Dinesh Lambha and Militza) are pretty commendable as well. I would completely understand why some people would want to rate it low and they would probably be the same guys who voted "No Smoking" to be one of the worst movies ever. But this flick has all the tell-tale signs of a damn' good psychological horror movie- and it keeps the suspense and tension going till the end.

In short, an afternoon spent really well.
