Kalki Koechlin has already worked in a dark love story (DEV D) and an edgy thriller (EMOTIONAL ATYACHAR). Now she would be seen in SHAITAN, the promos of which have caught attention and promise something which is indeed different, original and whacky.
"Well yes, SHAITAN is one whacky dramatic thriller," says Kalki, "The narrative here has a very good pace to it and the overall look is quite stylish as well. Our director Bejoy Nambiar hasn't adopted a usual filmmaking style. He has also included psychological element to it. You would also see quite a few scenes where there are montages included in the storytelling. Overall the film has a very dark and gritty look and feel to it."
Since Kalki is mentioning about 'psychological element', one does get a tad apprehensive about how the film would tackle it for screen. After all there have been quite a few films in the past that have boasted of such interesting setting on paper, only to be lost in translation.
"See, there is this psychology thing to the narrative but then over and above that there is also a very prominent story line," says Kalki quickly, "There is a strong plot to it that keeps you guessing about what would happen next. Otherwise the story by itself is very straight forward. It is a traditional chase story with cops running after people. No one is trying to confuse anyone here."
