On Wednesday, Emraan Hashmi, Nikita Dutta and team unveiled the trailer of their much-anticipated horror film Dybbuk - The Curse is Real. The film is all set to release on 29th October. Jointly produced by T-series and Panorama Studios, the upcoming Amazon Original Movie Dybbuk is directed by Jay K. and is the official remake of blockbuster Malayalam film - Ezra. With Emraan Hashmi coming back to his favorite genre, he will be seen headlining the film along with Nikita Dutta and Manav Kaul in key roles.
Set against the picturesque backdrop of Mauritius, the film chronicles the horrifying incidents that take place on the cursed island. The trailer released gives a glimpse into the life of a couple who gets entangled in this quandary, when the wife brings home an antique Jewish Box, that turns out to be a Dybbuk box!
“Dybbuk will mark my first digital feature film, and I am extremely excited to have taken this journey with my favourite genre and with Amazon Prime Video as the streaming partner,” Emraan Hashmi said, “The film is well-crafted and has quite a few jump-scares with a great storyline. We are bringing this film to our audiences at a time when the scarefest will be in full swing owing to Halloween, and I can’t wait for audiences to enjoy Dybbuk and make it a part of their watchlist for the season”
Director Jay K who had also directed the original said, “With Dybbuk, the audiences will witness a pure-play horror film, and I can assure you that this film will stay with the audiences for a long time”. He further adds, “The film’s storyline is gripping and explores a subject that hasn’t been exposed as much. At the heart of the film is the Jewish mythology and culture, the film is designed keeping in mind the authenticity of the culture and the genre. I am glad to have talents such as Emraan, Nikita and Manav who’ve done justice to this story. I am quite excited for the film to have a digital premier on Amazon Prime Video, with the kind of reach we sure will be able to take this story to a wide range of audiences.”
