- Ghost Stories Premiere
- Ghost Stories vs Lust Stories
- Ghost Stories will be the best horror series
Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Anurag Kashyap have collaborated together for a horror project titled Ghost Stories. However, this is not the first time that the dream team has come together in force.
The Emmy’s nominated Lust Stories was lauded for shedding light on modern relationships from the viewpoint of the Indian women.
Here’s why Ghost Stories will be better than Lust Stories
Big Best 4 Directors
The industry’s best four directors are joining hands to give this horror-thriller an edge over all the horror films that have come before. Zoya Akhtar is known for directing Gully Boy which was nominated as India’s official entry to the Oscars.
Karan Johar is a top Bollywood director known for pulling off movies like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. His knack for directing is impeccable and he understands the pulse of every movie. This proves to us why Ghost Stories will not be any other dull horror movie but the one that will leave its benchmark in its pool.
Anurag Kashyap is a skilled director and is credited for bringing new-age cinema to India. His aesthetics and flawless hidden camera techniques are exemplary to other film directors. Enough reasons why his inimitable expertise will be gold for the team and cast of Ghost Stories.
Dibakar Banerjee of Love, Sex Aur Dhokha is known for directing in low light and dark shades. His knowledge in noir films is a perfect blend for Ghost Stories.
From Sound, Music, and Cast; Ghost Stories has the perfect recipe for a perfect horror series
If you haven’t watched the trailer of Ghost Stories, watch it now. It has got all the spooky elements that will make you tremor from your seats. The sound, the shooting in low-light and the gripping background tracks all fit so well that the trailer alone sets a glimpse into the petrifying show that it will be.
The star cast includes the likes of Gulshan Devaiah (Shaitan), Sukant Goel Sobhita Dhulipala (Made In Heaven) Pavail Gulati, Vijay Varma Janhvi Kapoor (Dhadhak) Raghuvir Yadav, Surekha Sikri, Avinash Tiwary (Laila Majnu), Mrunal Thakur (Super 30) and Kusha Kapila (digital influencer).
This is going to be Janhvi’s first horror stint and she will be tapping into a different kind of audience. However, Janhvi and Shobhita will make sure to make you scream off your wits with their acting skills and brilliant expressions.
Ghost Stories is unlike any other horror story made so far. The music is also very spooky that leads to a high adrenaline rush and fastens the heartbeat. Ghost Stories is not for the faint-hearted people. Especially, the camera works are brilliant as the scenes are mostly shot in the night set up.
This movie genre is slightly out of Karan Johar’s comfort zone. But, will he is able to deliver is the question most people seek an answer to. Nevertheless, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap are acquainted with this kind of genre.
Another brilliant director Zoya Akhtar ensures that her expertise and exceptional directorial skills will amplify this horror series.
Will Ghost Stories qualify for Emmy’s nomination like Lust Stories did by the same band of directors, is a question we all are looking forward to.
