Director Vikram Bhatt started his career with clean entertaining films like JAANAM, FAREB etc. and then moved to all out commercial ventures such as AAP MUJHE ACHHE LAGNE LAGE, GHULAM, AWARA PAGAL DEEWANA, and was pretty successful here too, but he soon changed tracks and shifted his attention to a genre that is as safe as a house, horror and suspense/thriller.
With his last directorial venture, HAUNTED 3D, going on to achieve a blockbuster status, all eyes are now focused on his latest production venture, HATE STORY, directed by Vivek Agnihotri and starring Gulshan Devaiya, Nikhil Dwivedi and above all the hot and sensational Paoli Dam. Her daring bare back act and no holds barred dialogue delivery as well as spontaneity and confidence, and a figure to die for, remind many of Bipasha Basu‘s early days of JISM and RAAZ.
The bold theatrical trailer of the film has created quite a stir, and has evoked contrasting reactions from cine goers. Some have been mighty impressed by the bold and sexually explicit scenes and dialogues in the film, others feel quite revolted by the ‘in your face’ erotic thriller.
However, one thing is clear from the promo and that is that Vikram Bhatt has another winner on hands. And the reason is that the film looks like an ‘edge-of-the-seat’ erotic thriller, with a powerful story and a highly engaging screenplay, one that never slackens pace. Additionally, it also has power packed performances from its lead stars, as is evident from the trailer, and the latest Bengali beauty from Tollywood, Paoli Dam, looks smoking hot and highly confident.
Well, as we have seen in the past, bold thrillers like JISM, MURDER and MURDER 2 have been lapped up by the audience, and so there is no reason why the same cannot happen with HATE STORY. In fact trade is very upbeat about its box-office performance and it’s just a matter of a month, April 20 to be precise when the film releases all over!
