Nargis Fakri and Sachiin Joshi have begun filming for Amaavas in London, and the shoot is going to continue for 35 days, non-stop. Amaavas will be directed by Bhushan Patel, who also directed horror movies like 1920 Evil Returns, Ragini MMS and Alone. Amaavas, which is the day when the moon is not visible in the sky is considered to a night of ill and evil omens. So, the movie is probably going to be a horror with relation to the night without a moon. Bhushan Patel has mostly made movies that can be categorized as “Horrex” which means that the stories have elements of horror with eroticism.
His movies have mostly been panned by critics, but they do make a lot of money, as some portion of the public likes to see them. Nargis hasn’t had the kind of career resurgence that was predicted years ago, and she has been mostly missing from the big screen for a while. Amaavas is surely going to propel her back into the limelight. Sachiin Joshi is a telegu actor and has starred in movies like Jackpot, with Sunny Leone, which was both a critical and commercial failure. He also hasn’t done anything significant for a time and this could be his opportunity to prove himself as an actor.
The movie could easily be released toward the middle or at the end of the year, and it would be interesting if it is able to break through to the critics and prove star vehicle for both of the stars.
