The trailer of Roohi, starring Rajkummar Rao, Janhvi Kapoor and Varun Sharma, was launched on Tuesday. The movie, which was beforehand known as Rooh Afza and then Roohi Afzana, is a horror-comedy directed by Hardik Mehta, who has helmed Kaamyaab in 2018, and co-written Trapped (2016).
The film tells the story of a witch, Roohi (Janhvi kapoor) who abducts brides on their honeymoon. How two males, Veer and Raj (Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma) from the village take up the accountability to save lots of the brides from Roohi, kinds the core of the plot.
Watch the trailer of Roohi
With its refined particulars and nuances, Roohi will make you curious. Most of the scenes are loaded with nice VFX, and spooky soundtrack, crucial for a horror movie.
Janhvi Kapoor performs a witch who will get salvation provided that she is married off to a person. She can twist her neck 360 levels, and her ft are turned backwards. Yes, in the trailer itself you’ll know that the movie is stuffed with witch cliches, however Janhvi seems promising, and her prosthetics make her look convincing.
Rajkummar Rao then again will remind you of his humorous character from Anurag Basu’s Ludo given his antics, dressing sense and dance steps. However, this time, Raj’s character stutters and his drawback is used as a comic book aid in the movie.
Varun Sharma appears to be in an awesome kind, his comedian timing is impeccable. His empathy in direction of a witch offers the movie a humane contact and we realise that, like Maddock Film’s Stree (2018), this movie will too have a hidden social message.
The Indian Express bought a possibility to look at the trailer a day in advance on the Maddock Films’ workplace in Mumbai. We realised how the movie is made for the massive display, and it was smart of the movie’s producer, Dinesh Vijan to attend for the theatres to open in full capability earlier than releasing it.
Roohi is scheduled to launch in theatres on March 11.
