Trailer of the movie “Zombiesthaan”
Since when director Abhirup Ghosh has announced Zombiesthaan, there is a huge curiosity among the audience for this film. It is definitely courageous to think about such a subject but it is even more challenging to present the concept in form of a movie that too in a limited budget of Bengali cinema. We all are curious to see how Abhirup will use his expertise as a director and his talented team to face this challenge. Few weeks back the team had shown a glimpse of it in the teaser and now the much awaited trailer of the film has been released.
The trailer begins with a voice over by the leading lady Tnusree which helps to understand the backdrop of the story. The story is set in a time when most of the human population on earth has turned into zombies or has been killed by zombies as an aftermath of some bio-chemical reaction. In such a situation there is a lone survivor in Bengal named Akira played by Tnusree. She believes that there is a safe place somewhere for the VIPs and she will survive if she can reach to that place. The film will focus on her journey for survival. Later in the trailer we see how she meets another survivor played by Rudranil Ghosh who wants to help her. Also she meets a cruel man Horidas played by Rajatava Dutta who is a self proclaimed king of Horidas Nagar. He has somehow controlled the zombies and use it as his power to dominate others. Apart from the brief introduction of the three key characters the trailer does not reveal anything else about the plot which is good strategy for a thriller.
All the three lead actors are looking promising in their characters. Besides them the other things that draws attention in the trailer is the perfectly done make up specially for the zombies. Then there is the the engaging background score by Megh Banerjee and wonderful cinematography by Ankkit Sengupta. Both of these have helped to create the required thrilling ambiance while watching the trailer.
So far no Bengali film maker has tried to touch the topic of zombies and we are eagerly waiting to see the debut of zombies in Bengali movies with Zombiesthaan. The movie is releasing on 13th December till then enjoy the trailer which is compelling enough to make you more eager for the film.
