After 'Gayab', perhaps a Karva Chauth film?

Download Gayab WallpapersAfter a film about an invisible man, what would director Prawaal Raman make?
"If I were to make a film on a conventional subject, it would be on the Karva Chauth," Raman told IANS.

He was referring to the Hindu festival when women in northern India fast, praying for the long life of their husbands.

As of now, there is "Gayab", not as the director insists, inspired by other hit movies of the same genre like "Hollow Man" and Bollywood's very own "Mr. India".

"It's an original idea, a new concept," said Raman, whose earlier film was "Darna Mana Hai". Both "Gayab" and "Darna..." are from the stable of director-producer Ram Gopal Varma.

"Mr India" is a famous 1987 Bollywood blockbuster starring Anil Kapoor.

In "Gayab", Tusshar Kapoor plays a dimwit, who is constantly the butt of ridicule and is unable to win the woman he desires (Antara), until he vanishes.

Then begins his journey of getting even with the world and winning his fair maiden.

"My character (of Vishnu Prasad) is an invisible man on his own, for himself, playing pranks on others to get the love of his life," said the director.

"There are many directors dealing with conventional topics today. I wanted to do something different," smiled Raman. This led to tackling the invisibility theme.

The fact that Raman worked with Varma also helped. "Working with him is extremely helpful because he is himself a very big director, so he is able to bring new ideas to the project."

Varma is renowned for experimenting with new and diverse scripts in films like last year's "Bhoot" and "Ek Hasina Thi".

"Gayab," said Raman, "is a hilarious thriller, a commercial entertainer."
