With the Raaz series, Vishesh Films has been filling the audiences hunger for has been the paranormal/thriller movies for quite a few years. Although it’s not my bag of scares, I do wind up enjoying them probably because of the strong female performances and the always amazing soundtracks the production house manages to put together.
Raaz 3 seems even more exciting as it stars Bipasha Basu, a performer who has been delivering consistently and is one of our favorites. This has nothing to do with how awesome she looks! (ok, I’m lying she’s totally a hottie but check out her performance in Bachna Ae Haseeno if there are any doubts, available on NetFlix UK)
Raaz, which also starred Bipasha, was clearly inspired from Harrison Ford- Michel Pfeiffer’s “What Lies Beneath” and according to Wikipedia Raaz 2 had some influences by Ring 2 so I don’t know what Bipasha’s return to the franchise will hold, but looking at the trailer this seems to be an original take and Bips seems to be her all in this performance ( also check out this wonderful piece producer Mahesh Bhatt wrote about her performance).
The Films also stars Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta and the trailer had been allegedly delayed a few times but with the release of Jism 2 this Friday, the stars were perfectly aligned this time
I still feel the scariest part of the trailer and posters are the words “3D” and “directed by Vikram Bhatt” but this still might be a fun ride and Emraan and Bipasha always deliver in my book.
