When we heard that Bipasha Basu and Nawazuddin Siddiqui will star in a horror flick Aatma, we were taken aback for a while. The pair seemed unique, but odd. However, after looking at the first look of the film our doubt has vanished like mist before the sun. The duo looks terrific.
The title may sound like that of any B-grade horror flick, but the director Suparn Verma has not only roped in a good ensemble star cast, he has also managed some international crew members for his film. The movie’s DOP is Sophie Winqvise, who is from Denmark, and her mentor is Oscar winning cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle of Slumdog Millionaire fame.
Suparn Verma is also excited for his cast. According to him, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is a phenomenal actor and what the audience will see of him in Aatma is something never seen before. Bipasha Basu, too, has a stellar role, says Suparn Verma. But what is the little girl doing in the film? Does she play the duo’s daughter?
The first look of the film has both Nawazuddin and Bipasha lying in a bed like a couple, and between them is the girl holding a teddy. Bipasha looks a bit terrified, while Nawazuddin wears a smirk on his face; and if you have a sharp eye, you can’t miss the rumpled, wry spooky face on the spread. No wonder the poster reads Aatma - Feel it around you.
The first look of the film is undoubtedly interesting, save for the holy cross used as a T in the title ‘Aatma’, which is a tad similar to the poster of Anthony Hopkins’ movie The Rite (2011).
Check out the first look of Aatma featuring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Bipasha Basu. Can you see the aatma?
