RBN Web Desk: Pari, the Anushka-Parambrata starrer supernatural horror flick directed by Prosit Roy, was mostly shot on real locations in and around Kolkata to retain an authentic look in the film. Speaking to a leading Bengali daily, Prosit said that during the film’s recce, he and his team had zeroed in on several desolate and scary locations in the city to shoot the film.
Prosit said, he was fascinated by Dakshinaranjan Mitra Majumder’s popular Thakurmar Jhuli stories, something that a pan-India audience is yet to taste. He has relied less on special effects, and more on the locations to generate the fear element in his film, Prosit added.
Pari was canned in a hospital, a printing press, the Maidan, and crumbling houses without any set being erected for the purpose.
The director said that the performance of his cast will be the high point in Pari. Parambrata Chatterjee, Anushka Sharma, Rajit Kapoor, and others, have all returned a grat performance.
Pari releases today.
