Anurag Kashyap's SHAITAN has raised quite a few eyebrows thanks to its contemporary, thrilling and edgy promo.
With novel angles and high speed shots capturing risque sexual and violent behavior, the trailer gives audiences a taste of the first of its kind film on teenage angst and the rebellious attitudes of youth in metropolitans.
Nambiar says, 'The idea was to translate the edginess of the film into the trailer. Today's youth is aggressive, sexual, violent, edgier and aware of everything happening around. They like to explore the darker side and push the envelope till they can be brought in check by authorities. The film is basically about how well you deal with the shaitaan (demon) within you.'
Adds producer Anurag Kashyap, 'SHAITAN is like a David Flincher film set in Mumbai made by an Indian filmmaker. It completely blows you away.'
Produced by Anurag Kashyap and co-produced by Tipping Point Films, the youth film arm of Viacom 18, SHAITAN stars Rajeev Khandelwal, Kalki Koechlin, Neil Bhoopalam (LSD fame), Shiv Pandit, Kirti Kulhari and Gulshan Devaiah and comes to a theatre near you this 10th June, 2011.
