Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt who is specializing in horror genre films says the movies of this category have a repeat value if it is served with “great music”.
The director has a point. Some great Hollywood horror movies are known by their iconic soundtracks.
“Horror is a component so when you have great music served with great horror, then it has the repeat value,” Bhatt said in an interview. “We have made the franchise with great romance so that becomes a special kind of component which we add.”
Bhatt, who has widely explored the horror genre in the industry, is now ready for his “Raaz Reboot”, starring Emraan Hashmi and Kriti Kharbanda.
“Raaz Reboot” has added eerily significant value to the film because some parts of the horror film has been shot in the native land of Dracula, which is Romania. Snow-clad expansive landscapes, gothic, haunted houses. narrow eerie-looking isolated streets and clock striking the midnight all add to the drama and it is doubtful whether the tempo of the impending supernatural disaster will sidetrack even when our own ‘serial kisser’ is active against the ominous backdrops of dimly-lit lavish interiors. The trailer promises wholesome entertainment with glimpses of technical sophistication.
The Zakhm maker says he is particularly happy with the response that the film’s teaser and music have garnered. He said, “I am certain that this 14-year-old franchise will be a money spinner… I am delighted with this response.”
Bhat introduced Emraan to films with 2003 film Footpath. “Emraan has come a long way and there is no denying. He has grown as a man and that’s why he is grown as an actor. He can’t grow as an actor if he doesn’t grow as a man,” said the 67-year-old.
Directed by Vikram Bhatt, the fourth instalment of the Raaz franchise features Emraan with south Indian actress Kriti Kharbanda. Produced by Vishesh Films, the film will release on September 16. – CINEWS
