Amrish Puri Films brings to us a stalker horror film, the psychological thriller, Yeh Saali Aashiqui. The film stars Vardhan Puri, Amrish Puri’s grandson. The film also stars Ruslaan Mumtaaz and Shivaleeka Oberoi. Rajeev Puri and PEN films products this film. The trailer dropped recently and it promises a no-holds-barred, twisted psychological thriller. Yeh Saali Aashiqui is all set to become this generation’s Darr. Vardhan Puri plays a man who turns into a deranged, stalker lover after a woman spurns him. Shivaleeka Oberoi plays the woman who spurns the lover in college.
Director Cherag Ruparel does a good job of creating two worlds in this stalker horror film. The college life shots are all bright and shiny and the stalker scenes are shot in a more realistic light, instantly differentiating the two eras. Vardhan Puri looks promising and it’s good to see him taking the risky way out by debuting in a horror thriller and not a romantic comedy or a romantic drama. Shivaleeka Oberoi shows promise too. We’ll have to wait until the film releases to find out whether she stands up to the fiery performance that Vardhan is all set to give in the film.
Watch Yeh Saali Aashiqui trailer here:
Actors and actresses who have debuted with twisted films have remained relevant for a lot longer than contemporaries. For example, Neil Nitin Mukesh debuted with Johnny Gaddar in 2007 and 12 years down the line, he’s coming along with Bypass Road, another psychological horror film. Shah Rukh Khan made his debut with Deewana, a film that had an attempted murder angle. So at least Vardhan has made a great decision.
Vardhan has earlier revealed that he was about to debut with a historical film, but that didn’t happen. The rumors said that he would debut with another film named Paagal, but nobody’s heard about such a film as yet. In the current scenario, with everyone going to the horror film way, Vardhan chose the perfect launch vehicle. The film releases on 22nd November.
