The follower of Prithviraj's upcoming movie Nine was released Wednesday. "What an amazing trailer Prithvi !!!!! Can't wait to watch the movie! (Sic)," Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar tweeted while launching the trailer. And the trailer deserves all the exclamation marks in Karan's tweet, for it promises to be an intelligent, modern horror thriller.
The trailer suggests that the movie packs all the elements necessary for a movie of a horror genre: There are several shots that establish mysteries, creaking doors, close-ups of scary faces and also those who will scare you. But it also comes with a twist. Writer director Jenuse Mohamed has set a sci-fi spin on the horror movie.

We hear a sign discussing that an interdimensional portal must have opened between the worlds. And next we see a shadow monster attacking people, and it seems like it's out to get a teenager, who seems to be super intelligent. Interdimensional portal, shadow samples, a parent struggling for a supernatural power for his / her children, experiments that release horror – does it all complain about a clock? These are the core topics of Netflix hit, Stranger Things.
That said, let's not jump to a conclusion yet. The trailer actually gets our attention. The movie has apparently not passed the overused premise of a haunted object or house, and infected the lives of its unsuspecting new owners.
The film also stars Prakash Raj, Wamiqa Gabbi, Mamta Mohandas, Sekhar Menon among others.
You are also Prithvira's first production as an independent producer. The film will hit the screens on February 7th.
