Zombie Comedy Goes Viral
While the film’s zany look and presentation has caught some major attention, the zomcom (Zombie Comedy) feel has further managed to make inroads beyond the target audience. No wonder the makers are very pleased. Co-director Raj Nidimoru, of the popular Raj-Krishna DK directing duo, said: “We knew that we had a very cool trailer in hand. As a matter of fact, we have been itching to put it out there for a while now. However, we didn’t expect this kind of amazing and spontaneous response. This is fantabulous.”
Moreover, with the film’s promos yet to hit satellite channels, the team is thrilled with everything already in hand and is keeping fingers crossed for more. With Saif Ali Khan’s unique characterisation of a Russian mafioso finding much attention for itself, one waits to see what else is in store.
“Exactly my point”, exclaims Raj. “There is much more than what has been seen so far. There is a lot of context to the proceedings. With thumbs-up coming in, I am now very excited and looking forward to the film’s release.”
With just a little over a month remaining for Go Goa Gone, which is produced by Saif Ali Khan, Dinesh Vijan and Sunil Lulla, it is time for all involved to up the ante.
“However, before that the director duo, who have already won a number of brownie points with Shor In The City and 99, are settling down to the fact that a unique subject like this has been noticed.
“I was naturally quite anxious to see the kind of response Go Goa Gone would generate. Especially since we were unleashing something new on the public for the first time”, says Krishna, Raj’s partner in direction.
“A lot of time, effort and research have gone into making sure that we get every zombie right and every performance just perfect. I am quite thrilled already since what we have got so far is much more than we could have asked for.
“With youngsters Kunal Khemu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwari and Puja Gupta chilling out on the sandy beaches of Goa even as Saif brings on some chilling encounters while being on a killing spree, the zomcom is fast catching pace. Well, it only goes to show that the novelty of the subject is something that will appeal to a wide audience. Fingers crossed”, say Raj and Krishna in unison.
A comedy. A horror-thriller. An action-adventure. Go Goa Gone is all of these rolled into one; a unique combination of fear and funny makes this film a one-of-a-kind genre bender – a zombie comedy.
Hardik and Luv are two dopeheads who tag along to Goa with their best buddy, Bunny, on his business trip. Luv comes across a free-spirited girl, Luna, who casually invites them to an exclusive underground rave party on a remote island. The party is the brainchild of the macho Russian mafioso Boris, to launch the ultimate party drug. But something is not right on this island.
