Vikram Bhatt treads on Ram Gopal Varma’s footsteps as he talks black magic in Raaz 3!
Vikram Bhatt and Ram Gopal Varma both have a unique style and concept of story-telling and their representation also has been as different as chalk and cheese. The duo has never ventured into each other’s zone.
However, this time around, it seems filmmaker Vikram Bhatt is stepping or traversing Ramu’s way. Well, you must remember Ramu’s film Phoonk that came in 2008, whose theme was Black magic.
Well, Vikram’s upcoming film Raaz 3, starring Bipasha Basu, Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta, also uses black magic as its theme. The way Ramu treated the subject and executed was well appreciated and following the success of the first part, he even went ahead making its sequel. However, it didn’t fetch him the same response.
While Ramu’s Phoonk was based on the concept of revenge, Vikram’s Raaz 3, the third installment of Raaz franchise, is formed with the concept of jealousy and dark desires. The film shows Bipasha Basu as a fading actress who dabbles in black magic to regain her lost stardom, and finds herself in a world darker than she had imagined.
Now it is to be seen whether Vikram, like Ramu, can pull off and spell the ‘black magic’ at Box-office with its slick, stylized and sensuous film Raaz 3, which is slated to release on September 7. Let’s wait and watch!
