Movie buffs will be able to enjoy “Nirvana Inn” featuring actor Adil Hussain, online on pay-per-view digital platform, Cinemapreneur for 99 hours from December 11 onwards.
Nirvana Inn is a psychological horror film directed by Vijay Jayapal and also stars Rajshri Deshpande and Sandhya Mridul.
The film premiered at the 2019 Busan International Film Festival, where it was selected for the Asian Project Market.
The movie narrates the story of a boatman who becomes the caretaker of a resort in the Himalayas after an attempted suicide.
The movie has been shot in Manali, Majuli river island in Assam and Chennai.
It has been produced by Stray Factory, Uncombed Buddha, Stop Whinging and Harman Ventures in association with Magic Hour Films.
“With theatres closed and over-the-top platforms crowded, independent films have to find independent ways of distributing their film. We have decided to release the film in an unconventional manner as this gives the power to the audience to decide the fate of the film, thus setting a new trend,” a report quoted the producers of the film.
Adil Hussain said, “We hardly see this style in Indian cinema. I loved how the reality of my role easily slips into a nightmarish vision.”
The plot of the film has been narrated very intelligently and the director has a lot to offer to Indian cinema, said the actor who hails from Assam and has never played such a role before.
Rajshri Deshpande, who also essays an important role in the movie said, “It was a great experience being part of a folk horror film and playing a mysterious role.”
“The movie has a palpable emotional thread occasionally, which is interesting especially in the genre of horror. I was terrified myself at the end of it. So get prepared to be scared,” she said.
