The horror series Haiwaan – The Monster has a trailer. ZEE5 is betting big on the streaming bubble that’s caught up with Indian audiences currently. Their latest addition to the streaming bouquet is Haiwaan -The Monster. The series is about three friends, one of whom is critically injured in a car accident. We don’t know much more about the series right now, but the show debuts next week. The Horror series trailer shows that the injured goes through a mysterious process. At the end of the trailer, we see a monster looming large over the city’s skyscape. The idea is fresh and only a big production house will be able to pull it off. ZEE TV has the wherewithal to market such a series, so we can be rest assured that a horror series like Haiwaan will have at least a couple of seasons.
Here’s the synopsis:
Haiwaan – The Monster is a Hindi sci-fi television show starring Param Singh, Ridhima Pandit and Ankit Mohan. The creature horror series story revolves around two inseparable friends, Randhir and Ansh whose friendship is threatened when a failed experiment turns Ansh into a monster. Randhir must try his best to save both, the city and his friend.
The series could have done with better CGI. We aren’t sure the Indian television industry has the resources to combat CGI that Hollywood studios show. Even so, a horror series with this concept and this scale has never been experienced. TV series, even the ones that are about supernatural beings and ghosts, are mainly confined to one family, a couple of homes. With ZEE5 showing a cityscape, this has got our interest. Haiwaan, the Monster launches on August 31, 2019. Check out the trailer here:
