Mumbai: Filmmaker Vikram Bhatt is pushing the pedal on wooing digital audiences. The trailers of the latest premium digital shows co-produced by him and Video-on-Demand platform, Viu have taken the internet by storm. Gehraiyaan, an urban thriller with its eerie feel brings television’s hit jodi Sanjeeda Sheikh and Vatsal Sheth back together essaying roles that they have never played before. What’s interesting for viewers to enjoy is their on-screen chemistry amidst the blood-curdling paranormal.
Gehraiyaan, directed by Sidhant Sachdev is a perfect blend of mystery, thrill, spook and fear overloaded. Sanjeeda’s character Reyna exudes fear and terror while her surgeon boyfriend is at her side to help her face the forces of the dark. The twist in the tale is the emergence of her mysterious neighbour Sahil played by Vatsal who comes to her rescue. Is the story as straight as it looks to be or is there underlying layers yet to be unfolded? Being showcased on a digital platform, the production has taken the creative liberty taking terror to the next level. Is there a love triangle angle or does it clear cut fall under the Vikram Bhatt horror league, is something audiences will find out soon? It’s a spine-chilling tale that will drive you into abysmal depths. A show definitely not for the faint-hearted.
