When we reach home after a hard day of work, we instantly switch on our television set, expecting some sort of entertainment, be it comedy or horror, which might take our mind off our daily hassles. But no, we are served with this mindless saas bahu serials and hilariously horrifying shows like ‘Naagin’ and ‘Sasural Simar Ka’, which further hike our headache.
Isn’t it frustrating?
Where is originality and authenticity in the content?
Moreover, recently, we have seen that television writers are so high on ‘supernatural creativity’ that they can turn the lead bahu ‘Simar’ into a housefly. What for?
But, hang on, there are some creative minds who are working to redefine the supernatural quotient. And one of them is Vikram Bhatt. After his successful ‘Raaz’ franchise and other experimental horror flicks, he is slowly yet steadily introducing Indian audiences with the realism of horror.
And now, Vikram Bhatt is coming up with two web shows on VIU, a video-on-demand service, in the first quarter of 2017. One of which is an urban thriller gripped with supernatural elements and the other show will be based on the journey of an actor in the midst of scandals.
So, all those looking for realistic web series and missing ‘Raaz’ thrills, these shows will be a treat to watch.
Vikram Bhatt is equally excited to direct these shows, he said,
“Always exciting to work on projects for a digital audience. The creative challenge is to hold on to their attention and make them want for more. The allure of the paranormal that plays on in your minds and the vicarious thrill of knowing what it is like to lead the life of a Bollywood star are sure to glue the audience to their laptop or mobile screens.”
Well, these shows will definitely light up our spirit(literally).
GET. READY. FOLKS.
