After making thrillers like EK KHILADI EK HASEENA and ACID FACTORY, writer-director Suparn Verma has moved on to the horror genre with AATMA. One thing that he was sure of before stepping into this new world was to ensure a world class treatment. This also meant that he was quite particular about keeping the transition from reality to special effects as seamless as possible so that audience is entirely immersed in the narrative instead of being put off by a jerky narrative that at times becomes noticeable.

'In terms of VFX, we have taken it to the next level. It won't be fair to name some of the recent horror and special effects laden films but then there are people who have spent crores on VFX. Ours is a very small budget film and still we haven't compromised on quality and that too in a controlled budget,'' says Suparn who closely supervised the entire process as it was being undertaken at Reliance MediaWork.

He adds, 'After seeing the rough cut of the film, they too realised that AATMA would end up being a show-reel project for them. The beauty of VFX here is that you don't know where it ends and reality begins. There are as many as 340 VFX shots in the film but they won't be on your face; they are so well integrated in the film.'

Though he had originally envisaged the film to be made in 3D, Suparn is happy that he didn't take the step.

'I am so glad that I have not gone into 3D. That fourth wall of a glass ends up distancing you than bringing you closer to the proceedings on screen. The way AATMA unfolds, it would suck you into its own world and that too in its original 2D format. Add to that the whole editing pattern, sound design and cinematography and you would witness something that has never been seen before,'' promises Suparn.

Hope the promise is met when the film releases all over this weekend.
