Indian Cinema and the horror genre was synonymous with the Ramsay Brothers and in recent years, crime master Ram Gopal Varma took over the reins and churned out his style of horror films – some good and some bad.
But lately new breed of directors have taken a step forward to give us new class of horror films that was earlier seen in their western counterparts. Zombie films are here to stay.
Go Goa Gone is India’s first Zombie film – and for those who are not aware of what a Zombie is, it’s the living dead creatures!
Directed by the duo Raj & DK (Shor In The City), the film is produced by Saif Ali Khan’s production company Illuminati Films and Eros International. The story is written by the director duo along with Sita Menon who had earlier penned their Shor In The City.
Saif Ali Khan stars as Boris a Zombie hunter in this crazy zombie comedy film that also has Kunal Khemu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwari and Pooja Gupta. According to Saif, Boris is not only tough and cool but also very funny. He has a good heart and is brave. He added that he was very excited to play Boris from the first time he discovered the character of a Zombie hunter.
The story goes: Kunal and Vir Das are good-for-nothing friends who decide to tag along with their friend Anand to Goa. There Vir Das falls for the charm of Pooja who invites the friends to a rave party on a remote island. And there all hell break loose as Zombies gatecrash the party. But Boris is there to save them or it seems!
From the look of the trailer, the film looks promising and is indeed a quality zombie/comedy film – a new mixed genre altogether. Everything about the film appeals and will strike a cord with the audience who love these kind of films. For Saif’s look as gun wielding Boris, well we like the change!
The film is set to release on 10th May 2013
