Kishen Das Shines in Haunting Horror 'SYNC' - Audience Praises His Fearless Performance
After the massive success of his debut film 'Mudhal Nee Mudivum Nee,' Kishen Das has once again taken the regional cinema scene by storm with his second offering, 'SYNC.'This micro-budget horror movie has been released on the regional platform Aha and has been met with overwhelming praise from both critics and audiences alike.
The film, directed by Vikas Anand, stars Kishen Das alongside talented actors Monica Chinnakotla, Soundarya Nandakumar, and Naveen George Thomas in lead roles. "SYNC" takes horror to a whole new level by exploring the spine-chilling encounters of a group of friends who face mysterious and terrifying activities after a tragic mishap.
"SYNC" ventures into the realm of technology-induced horror, revolving around four friends whose lives take a haunting turn after an unforeseen accident. As the friends navigate through the consequences of the mishap, the film uniquely portrays their horrifying experiences through video calls. The use of video calls as a storytelling tool sets "SYNC" apart from traditional horror films, offering a fresh and thrilling perspective.
Creating a movie predominantly centered around video calls presented its own set of challenges during production. Kishen Das, in particular, had a demanding task as he shot for several 8-9 minute-long scenes without any breaks. This required him to stay fully immersed in his character's emotions and reactions throughout the lengthy shots, showcasing his dedication and talent as an actor.
The team had to ensure that the video call interactions felt realistic and seamless, as any disruption or lack of authenticity could break the audience's immersion. By meticulously coordinating the performances of the actors and paying attention to the technical aspects, the team successfully captured the essence of genuine interactions via video calls.
To truly embody the horror genre, Kishen Das took an unconventional approach to prepare for his role. Kishen even locked himself in a room to experience the feeling of fear firsthand. During the film's reading sessions, an eerie incident occurred when the lights unexpectedly went off, leaving Kishen in an unsettling and unnatural situation. This unplanned event, though unintentional, inadvertently added to the actor's understanding of fear and heightened his performance on-screen.
In addition to Kishen Das's commendable portrayal, the movie boasts a talented ensemble cast. Monica Chinnakotla, Soundarya Nandakumar, and Naveen George Thomas each bring their own unique flair to their roles, intensifying the sense of camaraderie and fear among the group of friends.
With this remarkable success, Kishen Das and the entire team of "SYNC" have undoubtedly carved a niche for themselves in the world of cinema, leaving audiences eagerly awaiting their next ventures.
