'Acid Factory is Ghajini multiplied by six'
From Harley Davidsons to helicopters, speedboats, lamborghinis and ferraris...Acid Factory has it all! Shot at breath taking locales of Cape Town, the filmmakers are leaving no stone unturned to lure the audience with this action thriller. What's more? A multi starrer with the likes of Fardeen Khan, Dino Morea, Aftab Shivadasani, Irrfan Khan, Manoj Bajpai, Danny Denzongpa and Dia Mirza, the film certaily has enough reasons to keep the viewers glued to their seats. We caught up with Suparn Verma, the director of the film for a tête-à-tête ahead of the film's release on October 9 and here's what he had to say...
Why did you choose the title 'Acid Factory'?
The story is set in an acid factory. It is about six characters who have lost their memories and don't know who they are. The acid factory is like an 8th character in the film. Moreover, it is also a very catchy title and immediately grabs attention.
Tell us something about the film.
It's a very unique story and is unlike most thrillers made so far. The characters loose their memory only to discover an uncertain future. They don't know who they are, who will die and who will live. It is a one hour forty five minutes film which has been shot in Cape Town. All the actors in the film have played roles that they have never played before in their respective careers. The action is gripping and will definitely challenge the audience.
What's in store for action lovers?
The storyline is the biggest USP of the film. We have used the most luxurious cars and bikes in the film. They are all an intricate part of the story. They compliment and complete the characters in their own way.
Is the movie inspired by Ghajini?
Acid Factory is Ghajini multiplied by six. However, it is not inspired by Ghajini in any way. Unlike Ghajini, in which Aamir suffers from short term memory loss and wants to take revenge for his girlfriend's murder, here the characters' memory loss is very different from that of Ghajini.
While the film promises to be the mother of all thrillers - packaging style with substance, what remains to be seen is whether it's attempt to carve a niche for itself and impress the audience will be a success.
