New Delhi, Feb 15 (IANS) Sangeeth Sivan's maiden attempt at horror "Sandhya" may have never been released but the director has re-attempted to chill audiences' spine with his upcoming horror outing "Click", releasing Friday. The movie deals with dark secrets in photographs.
Produced by Pritish Nandy Communications and RNA Play Entertainment, it stars Shreyas Talpade, Sneha Ullal, southern actress Sada, Rehan Khan and Chunky Panday. It will be distributed across the country by PVR Pictures.
"'Sandhya' (starring Jackie Shroff and Ashutosh Rana), my first horror flick, didn't see the light of the day, I went on to make comedies like 'Kya Kool Hain Hum' and 'Apna Sapna Money Money'. These films helped me establish myself firmly in Bollywood," Sivan said.
"I went a step ahead and roped in Bobby (Deol) and Nana (Patekar) for an action thriller 'Ek - The Power Of One'. Now, I thought of shifting to a different genre. The horror subject fascinated me and I decided to get the film ('Click') on floors," he added.
An unofficial remake of the Thai horror film "Shutter", which was made in Tamil as "Sivi" in 2007, "Click" is the story of a young photographer and his girlfriend.
He takes pictures and hides a secret from his past and when the secret is revealed, it threatens to ruin not only his life but also that of his family, friends and loved ones.
It is a secret that comes from a world that's different from ours.
A bit low on promotions and buzz, "Click" is releasing in the week following Shah Rukh Khan starrer "My Name Is Khan". Another Hindi movie "Toh Baat Pakki" is also releasing on the same day.
