"Go Goa Gone" co-director Raj Nidimoru believes a heady combination of fear and comedy will work amongst today's audience.
Talking about the scope of a zombie comedy like "Go Goa Gone", he told IANS: "The scope is great. When we made the film, we realised that it had a lot of scope. Fear and laughter are primal instincts. To combine them together, we think it is a tremendous pull for the audience!"
Nidimoru has co-directed the movie with Krishna D.K. Together. They had earlier made films like "Shor in the city", "99" and "Flavors".
The filmmakers were completely against making a pure horror film.
"We were playing with various ideas. A pure horror film didn't excite us. When we were thinking of doing something more to the genre, we thought of doing a comedy. We wanted to do an intentional comedy in a horror film," he said.
Nidimoru said as a team, Krishna and him always try to explore something different with every film.
"It is not a conscious decision, but we try to make something innovative rather than repeating what we have done earlier. When this happens, it gives us immense satisfaction, which we feel is very important," he said.
"This is our version of (a film with a) more mainstream appeal. It is a mass masala story from our point of view. It is a hilarious film, where everybody can have a great laugh," he said.
A good script assures a good film, the director feels.
"Irrespective of what genre it is, highly scary, or funny...if the content is strong, you can guarantee a success. No one can guarantee anything, but whatever little is there, it will be done through a strong script. With that you end up with a good film, and then it depends on your luck and the market," he said.
But does having a big star like Saif Ali Khan help?
"Big stars like Saif give you film a face, then the film (story) has to take over. With his new look, you garner a lot of interest. But then the content has to be good to keep you going," he said.
The director duo has already planned something new for their next venture post "Go Goa Gone".
"We have a couple of scripts, which we are discussing. I don't know which one will take off first. But the next one will be a completely different genre," he said.
