Pritish Nandy Communication’s The Accident will send a chill down your spinesJune 20th, 2009 - 4:42 am ICT by Sampurn Wire
Forget mindless blood and gore, PNC’s next horror-cum-psychological fare, Accident, will really send a chill down your spine and keep you on the edge of the seat. Produced by Pritish Nandy and Rangita Nandy, the film stars Shiney Ahuja, Soha Ali Khan, Rahul Dev and others. The cinematography is by Abhik Mukherjee of (Bunty Aur Bubli and Chokher Bali fame); The Accident is a ‘classic psychological horror film, which shows the deterioration of a woman’s mind’.
The film is about a couple moving from California to India, and meeting with an accident soon after. The woman loses her child, creating an emotional rift between the couple. Life takes an eerie turn after they move to a certain bungalow. There on, the condition of the girl’s mind deteriorates… or does it really? Or are supernatural powers at play? As director Abhijit Chaudhuri aka Dadu (the renowned ad film maker in the league of Sudhir Mishra and Anurag Basu) puts it, “The Accident is horror in the tradition of The Tenant. It is more a mind game than a blood-fest. Scary and freezing because the fear is immediate and palpable.” Soha seconds this thought, as she says, “It (the film) has an international quality to it… As the film progresses, it will keep the audiences guessing.”
Well, another reason why the film is in news is because of some intimate scenes between Soha and Shiney. The duo has shared the screen in Khoya Khoya Chand earlier. Soha refutes that there are too many intimate scenes or too much intimacy in them. She says that there isn’t a lovemaking scene, as such, and there are only silences and shadows. Though the actress has no qualms about doing such scenes, she admits to drawing a line if she is not comfortable.
Lately, media has been speculating about the completion of the film and when we contacted the Mr. Ram Kamal Mukherjee, Vice President, Pritish Nandy Communications, he added, “We have completed more than 90% shoot of the film. We need to shoot just three to four more days. The scenes would require Soha Ali Khan and Shiney Ahuja. We will be shooting the solo Soha scenes and other patch works first. Once we get fresh dates from Shiney Ahuja we shall resume the shoot and wrap up the film.” When asked about the reports published in various websites and news agency that the fate of the film is undecided, Mr Mukherjee added, “Certainly not. The film is almost complete and we would release it whenever we are ready with it. It’s a new kind of cinema, a treatment which is not seen on Indian celluloid. Moreover I am very confident about the fact that people will get to see a talented filmmaker like Abhijit Choudhuri and writer Arindam Mitra. Horror films will get a different definition with The Accident.” So, the audiences need to get ready to get spooked out.
