666, as we all know is the Devil’s number. Keeping in mind this aspect debutant director Aziz Zee has titled his debut film as Plot Number 666. Mohammad Nazim of Saath Nibhana Saathiya fame and Sanchita were recently in the city to address the press and give an insight into this New Bollywood film.

“The film is based on a real life incident which happened about fifteen years ago with a group of young people who went on a tour together. The film has horror elements and also speaks about friendship. My character is one who can foresee the events that will take place in future” said Mohammad Nazim while speaking with Sholoana Bangaliana. When asked whether it is a good idea to sign up a horror film as his launch film, the actor said that it is all about luck. One can do a film with Yash Raj and still not be successful. One can on the other hand do a film with a not so big banner and still achieve success.

“The director selected me as he thought I have the personality and the looks to play this character. That is solely the reason why he chose me for the role” added the actor. The actor who also plays the role of Ahem in the immensely popular serial Saath Nibhana Saathiya had a tough time adjusting his serial commitments with the film shoot. Initially the director of the serial refused. He then approached the channel authorities who responded positively to his request. He used to shoot for the serial in the morning and at night for the film. The actor termed the schedule as “Hectic and tiresome”.

The actor also shared a real life horror experience too. “Once I had gone to visit my sister. I was returning back on a cycle to her house. Suddenly I saw a lady in white dress waving at me. I ignored and crossed her. Then I turned back to see and lo the lady was gone. It was later that someone told me it was a ghost” said the actor.

Debutant Sanchita will be seen playing the role of Soniya in the film. The actress described her character as tomboyish. Despite knowing that the film was a horror film, she did get scared enacting in some of the scenes.

The USP of the film according to Nazim is the short running time (1hour and 30 minutes), gripping and engaging plot and good music.

The music of the film has been composed by Akash Das and Shibani Kashyap.

The film is slated for release soon.

Bengali Horror Film Maaya: Review, Poster; It has to be Really Scary to Impress

Bengali-horror-film-Maaya

Horror movies have a charm of their own. Like it or dislike it, but strangely you simply cannot avoid or ignore them. Such is the charm of the horror genre of film making. When I entered London-Paris, Mukti World multiplex for the premiere of the much awaited horror Bengali film Maya, I too was similarly filled with excitement to see what the makers have to offer. Spotted at this premiere show were Sayantani Ghosh, Rimjhim Gupta, Jayjeet, Bharat Kaul, Nishpal Singh, Abhijit Guha, Rudranil Ghosh and other celebrities from the Tollywood film fraternity.

The story is about Shona who is the daughter of Neha and Sameer Dey. Neha is an actress by profession while Sameer is a director. Apart from being a director, Sameer also manages the work of Neha. The couple and their daughter live happily until on Shona’s birthday, she reacts violently and hurts her parents with a knife. They seek medical help. However after a few days, this aggressive outburst of Shona happens again. Shona’s parents become bewildered. Ria Sen, an investigative journalist also gets involved with the case. She discovers that it is the unsatisfied spirit of a small girl named Puja who had possessed Shona. What happens next? Does Shona become free from the possession of the spirit? Are the wishes of the spirit fulfilled? These are some of the questions which the film answers.

The basic issue that I have as a film critic is with the script. The script is loosely bound. Hence the director often does not have any grip over the pace of the story. This makes the story unappealing for the audience. Script writer Manoj Tyagi had a couple of English horror films in his mind while he was writing the script and hence the result was an uneven mix of the events. The script liberally borrows ideas from English horror flicks like Orphan, Child’s Play. Audiences who have the habit of watching English films will be able to relate easily with the scenes and even point out the names of the films from which the scenes have been taken.

The director Raj Kumar Behl’s ideas about horror flicks sadly have not been updated. As a result, the age old cliché situations like creaking of the doors, writing on walls with blood, throwing of things haphazardly, white colored eye lenses after one is possessed have been used to create an aura of horror in the film. As a result nothing new is shown in this film and to add to that the sound effects in the film are jarring. The director has tried hard to scare the audience but when you give stock elements to the audience, how can you expect one to get scared? The ghosts have progressed and so have the audience. But strangely the director has not paid much heed to these changes.

Music in the film by Indraadip Dasgupta is a big letdown. The music director who had composed great music in many a film like Apur Pachali, Hanuman.com and the current horror-thriller sensation Birsa Dasgupta’s Golpo Holeo Shotti, will shock you with the music composed by him. You will have to actually read the credits to understand that he is the music director behind the film.

With average acting by Sayantani Ghosh, Rimjhim Gupta, Bharat Kaul and Jayjeet, the film even does not fare well in this department. Child artiste who played the role of Shona however has done a good job when compared with the senior actors.

Maya is one film which fails to scare you. Instead of shouting out in fright, when you get bored and even try to stop a smile, you can very well understand the fate of the movie. Maya is one film which you can very easily skip. Instead get hold of a few English horror flicks and get all that adrenaline rush.

Rating- 1.5/5
