Bollywood has had its fair share of horror films but if there is one film franchise that we could say was a little different from the others and managed to spook us properly without making us feel like we wasted our money and time watching it, was the 1920 franchise. The first 1920 film, which starred Adah Sharma and Rajneesh Duggal was based in the Victorian period, and did quite well at the Box Office. The latest installment in the franchise is called 1921, starring Karan Kundrra and Zareen Khan in the lead, which again takes us back to the Victorian architecture and eerie surroundings. However, this time the film has it all— ghosts, wraiths and poltergeists— which the film’s protagonists have to deal with. Also Read - EXCLUSIVE!

The rest of the film is in keeping with the Vikram Bhatt tradition–lovemaking and kissing scenes (quite forced and unnecessary in some places) and melodic songs. Parts of the film will also remind you of Conjuring as some of the ghosts are a lot like the ones in the famous Hollywood film franchise. Set up entirely in Britain, the movie revolves around the lives of Karan and Zareen who must face their dark and mysterious pasts to ensure a safe life ahead. From the looks of the trailer that released today, it looks like a struggle between life and death. Take a look at the trailer below: (ALSO READ: Aksar 2 Makers Hit Back At Zareen Khan: She Was Kept In The Loop For Everything, So I Don’t Understand Her Comments) Also Read - IPL 2020: Zareen Khan Slams Sunil Gavaskar Sexist Comment on Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma After RCB Lose

Now doesn’t it look interesting? Speaking about the starcast, we will see Karan Kundrra play a lead role for the first time in this film. He was last see in Mubarakan where he played a supporting role. On the other hand, Zareen Khan was last seen in the erotic thriller Aksar 2 opposite Gautam Rode, which failed to impress the audiences and critics alike. Both Karan and Zareen seem convincing in their roles, however whether or no they will be able to impress the audiences, only time will say. The film is slated for a release on January 12 2018.
