The first look and theatrical trailer of Dilip Virender Sood's forthcoming horror film "Bhaangarh" has been unveiled here. The movie is loosely inspired by the legend of what is considered India's "officially haunted" place - Bhangarh Fort in Rajasthan.
The almost three-minute long trailer of the movie, which was launched Tuesday, is fast paced and maintains the mystical feel enhanced by spooky intriguing shots while giving a glimpse of the story. Along with it, two posters were revealed.
"Since childhood I have been a huge horror fan with a special interest in slasher and psychological horror films. Through 'Bhaangarh', I have tried to deviate from the traditional Indian horror film and give audiences a new experience which draws from both these sub-genres," Sood said in a statement.
"The film will surely take audience by surprise, keeping them guessing and scaring them at the same time. The movie deals with human emotion and how, when your worst nightmare comes true, it becomes impossible to tell between a friend from a foe. We have tried to capture this essence and communicate it to audience through the movie's trailer and poster," added the director.
The film slated for a Sep 5 release, stars Aneet Kaur Sekhon, Herry. T, Debonita Sur, Adeel Chaudhry, Suzzana Mukherjee and Tom Alter in key roles.
"Bhaangarh" is a story of six friends who don't pay heed to a warning board outside its fort gate that states - entering the borders of Bhaangarh before sunrise and after sunset is strictly prohibited.
Legal action would be taken against anybody who does not follow these instructions - leading to a mystical labyrinth of horror, deception and adventure.
