Cinevistaas movie 'Shhh...' to be launched in September

MUMBAI: What's with television production houses and filmmakers? Despite burning their fingers with Yeh Mohabbat Hai some years back- a debut venture under independent banner Eagle production, Cinevistaas is back with suspense thriller Shhh....Scheduled to hit theatres in September 2003, the film is in its last month of production.

Making her debut in the slasher flick is Kajol's sister Tanisha, alongside Dino Moreo, Karan Nath, Gaurav and Kushal Punjabi.

Cinevistaas had earlier announced a movie under its home banner with Salman Khan in the lead. The untitled film directed by Puneet Issar is in limbo but the second venture Shhh.... will be released earlier. Speaking to indiantelevision.com, producer in charge Uday Singh says: "It is basically a 'whodunnit' project." He claims that while both the projects started off simultaneously, Shhh... which has been under production for nine months now, should be ready in a month's time. The debut venture should be ready a month after Shhh... releases.

With the thriller genre being the flavour of the season among filmmakers, the release might work to their benefit

According to Uday Singh, the total cost incurred while producing the movie is 60 million rupees. The music rights of the movie have been already bought by T-series. Anu Malik is composing music for the movie, while the singers roped include likes of Adnan Sami, Shaan and Sonu Nigam.

He firmly denies that the non-performance of the first venture under Eagle production has affected Cinevistaas. While his show Shhh... koi hai is currently being aired on Star Plus, he has his fingers crossed for his first movie venture.

On the other hand director Pavan Kaul, is very optimistic about Shhh.... With previous movie directorial efforts like Chor aur Chand starring Aditya Pancholi and Pooja Bhatt failing miserably, and an ambitious Sharukh Khan starrer Vishwas being shelved, Shh... is a sort of trial for the television director. His portfolio, includes the likes of Mano ya na mano for Zee, Kash, and the conceptual episodes of Shhh.... koi hai . So no surprise at the choice of subject.

Kaul discloses that the story starts off with Tanisha setting off to find her sister's murderer unaware that he is stalking her, a la Psycho. With a spate of multi-starrer thrillers being released, comparisons are inevitable. When queried about it he says: "I don't claim to be making a different movie. It is keeping with the latest trend but the visuals, and the style is unique. We have shot in Simla, Manali and Thailand. Six songs have been included in the movie. It is a complete entertainer. Besides the thriller element it is essentially a love triangle."
