The Past – Adds To The List of Horror Films of 2018

Mumbai: Horror Thriller “The Past’ starring Yuvraaj Parashar and Vedita Pratap Singh is all set for release on 27th April 2018. The film which is a horror thriller is made, unlike other clichéd Bollywood horror films. The setting is as natural as it can get. 2018 sees horror films like Anushka Sharma’s Pari, Rajkummar Rao, and Shraddha Kapoor’s Stree, Javed Jaffri’s Lupt, etc. There are a bunch of regional horror films scheduled for later this year, including Kanchana 3 (Tamil) and Karu (Telugu). While the Indian horror movie scene has been heating up with the success of Vikram Bhatt’s 1921 and Tamil-Telugu horror thriller Bhagaamathie last month, Hollywood has supernatural horror films like The Nun and A Quiet Place ready too. Meanwhile, over-the-top (OTT) video streaming platforms like Amazon Prime Video and Viu have already gotten into the horror game with shows like Shaitan Haveli and Gehraiyan. “The post-production is almost complete. We shot the movie in Virar, which has been the stomping ground for a number of horror films.  The horror genre is often seen as the black sheep of Bollywood. Though they frequently have audiences in fits, they’re seen as cheap movies with little artistic value. Let me assure you that there is a lot to look forward to in ‘The Past’” Said Yuvraaj Parashar while talking about the movie. Vedita Pratap Singh said; “The Past is a movie that will engage the audiences in their minds. They will love the twists and edge of the seat thrill. As an artist am happy that the film has a release date and am sure that audiences will love the film.” “Horror is a genre that is less explored in Bollywood. We have tried to venture into a zone which is not attempted before. We hope to bring together horror aficionados, and those of us who just wonder what makes us humans tick. If you are not scared in the night after the film, then you actually didn’t see the film.” Says the debutante director Gagan Puri. Peacock Motion Filmz has produced ‘The Past’ and it competes with films like Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika, Saif Ali Khan’s Bazaar and Rajnikanth’s Kaala at the Box Office from April 27, 2018. ——–Shibangee Dhar(P.R PROTON... read more
