New Delhi: Ramsay Brothers contributed a lot in establishing horror as a sough after genre in the Hindi film industry, and they experimented with different versions of ghosts in their film. Though zombies were also a part of their films in different forms but they never based an entire film on the zombies only.
Now, Luke Kenny and Devaki Singh have come up with a proper zombie film, which stars Luke Kenny, Kirti Kulhari, Ashwin Mushran and Benjamin Gilani in pivotal roles.
The film revolves around a wildlife photographer whose personal as well as professional life is troubled. People who are dear to him prefer to go away when he needed them the most. His chance encounter with some unthinkable creatures changes his life forever.
'Rise of the Zombie' is expected to trace the origin of zombies and if it does so successfully then it might emerge as an interesting film.
