The film is based on the year 1921 the film deals with Ayush & Rose’s battle with extreme paranormal activities created by a ruthless and cursed spirit that would lead them to their ultimate redemption or downfall. Director Vikram Bhatt is back with another horror film revolving around Ayush (Karan Kundra) & Rose (Zareen Khan).
1920 film franchise is an unusual horror film franchise that Bollywood can claim to be something different, bringing horror into Victorian period drama. The first 1920 movie, starring Adah Sharma and Rajneesh Duggal, was a success at the silver screen and also managed to spook us properly without ending up being a slapstick. The remakes that followed were not as successful but director Vikram Bhatt has made a reliable franchise out of it.
Now we have the next part of the franchise, that has moved a year ahead. So here is 1921, that cast Karan Kundra and Zareen Khan in the lead. The makers have released the new trailer that again takes us back to Victorian buildings and spooky atmosphere. But this time there is a lot more ghosts, poltergeists, wraiths and aatmas for the movie’s unlucky protagonists to handle. And in the custom of every Vikram Bhatt movie, there are romantic songs, lovemaking and kissing scenes and some shock scares.
This is Karan Kundra’s first lead role movie in Bollywood. He was earlier seen in a supporting role in this year’s Mubarakan. Zareen Khan was last seen in the erotic thriller Aksar 2, that failed to light fireworks at the box office.
Earlier director Vikram Bhatt said of the film, in a statement, “The point is to just not scare but to make the audience feel for the characters and to want them protected. ‘1921’ is a film that goes beyond the genre. Why can’t the villain of a great love be a great evil.”
The film revolves around the lead cast dealing with their dark pasts and secrets to secure their present and future. It is about a struggle between life and death, and is based entirely in Britain.
