'Tum Ashuddh Ho, Sudd Chuke Ho' (You are impure, you are rotten) This is what the publicity material of RAAZ THE MYSTERY CONTINUES screams loud and clear. Whether it is the film's posters or the website, it is this very message that can be found prominent all over. So what really is the origin of this statement in this Mohit Suri directed film? What's the essence of this message? Why such strong words for this horror film which would be the first film coming from the house of Vishesh Films in 2009 that delivered a superhit in the form of JANNAT early this year?
Says a source attached to the film's production house, 'See, of course we can't reveal much about the plot at the moment. However, the fact is that this indicates a kind of curse that Kangna faces in the film. She is haunted by a series of deathly and paranormal experiences and her sense of reasoning starts crumbles in the face of fear soon after.'
In the film, Emraan Hashmi plays the role of an artist who experiences some mysterious visions about Kangna through his paintings. The shocking part is that he has never met Kangna. Though he warns her that she could be facing some mishaps in her real life (as depicted through his paintings), she dismisses him as an eccentric stalker before experiencing the curse (of being impure and rotten) herself.
'That's right', confirms the source, 'In fact when one of Emraan's paintings reveals her as being dead, Kangna immediately sets out on unraveling this mystery and get rid of the curse. Though her boyfriend in the film (Adhyayan Suman) doesn't trust supernatural occurrences, he too is forced to relook at his views later in the film', hints the source.
