Kaalo

, the film that claims to be India’s first diurnal horror movie, has earned itself global recognition a month before its release in the country. It has not only won the Best Feature Film award at the recently concluded 6th Annual South African Horrorfest, but also won cinematographer Pushpak Gawade an award for Best Cinematography.



Director Wilson Louis likes experimenting with the genre. His last film,

Ho Sakta Hain

(2006) was a black magic horror film, and his next untitled project is a psychological horror. He says, “We badly needed that kind of recognition. Now I know I can think and act globally without worrying about industry pressures.” The film stars 11-year-old Swini Khara and Aditya Shrivastav of CID fame and is expected to release around December 17.
