KaanteZinda - Another dark film from the Gupta stable

After Kaante and Musafir , producer-director Sanjay Gupta is back with his latest offering - Zinda which promises to be the darkest movie ever by Gupta and tells you a story never told before on Indian screen.

Shot in Bangkok, Zinda is about Balajeet Roy ( Sanjay Dutt ), happily in love with his pregnant wife ( Celina Jaitley ).




Life takes an abrupt turn when Roy gets locked away in a room for 14 years! Roy has no idea who his captors are, and neither does he know why he has been locked away in isolation for so many years.

One fine day, he is suddenly set free. As he enters a drastically different world, Roy tries to find out what really happened to him.

He bumps into three people -- Rohit Chopra ( John Abraham ), Jenny ( Lara Dutta ) and Joy Fernandes ( Mahesh Manjrekar ). Who are these people? And were they connected with Roy's captivity in any way?

Zinda has the answer to this, and much more.

Gupta's Kaante was a copy of 'Resevoir Dogs', and Musafir was loosely based on 'U-Turn'.

This time, Zinda is said to be a copy of the Korean film 'Oldboy'.

All three films have been produced by White Feather Films, partnered by Gupta, Dutt and Nitin Manmohan . No surprise that Dutt features in all the three films.

With Zinda, John makes his debut as singer. The song, 'Yeh hai meri kahaani', is sung by Pakistani band Strings' Faisal and Bilal, and John does a voiceover. The song also features Dutt.

A music video featuring the four has already been released, and Zinda's music is already climbing up the charts.

Dutt also sings in 'Kabhi muskurana', composed by Vishal-Shekhar .

Lara had a good 2005. Her films Kaal and Dosti - Friends Forever did reasonably well. And she even featured in 2005's biggest hit, No Entry . Whether Lara will prove lucky for Gupta remains to be seen.

John is not the only one changing his avatar inZinda. Besides being a director, Gupta doubles up as a lyric writer for the film. He has written the title track, 'Zinda hoon main'.

Zinda expected to hit theatres on January 12.
