Y-Films, the youth film division of YRF Films has come up with another new web series. The teaser is out and this one looks just as intriguing as previous ones.
This time, Y-Films has taken the YRF's much-loved thriller Darr – starring Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla and Sunny Deol – and has given it an edgy twist. If you remember the 1993 cult thriller, you'll remember that SRK was a madly-in-love stalker. He was the anti-hero, and his dialogue "K..k..k..Kiran" became very popular.
With Darr 2.0, Y-Films is trying to recreate the stalker-magic. Director Vikas Chandra is using the old characters – Rahul, Kiran and Sunil, and will be showing them in a contemporary light. The cast is still being worked on. The web-series will be a five-part series with the tagline: “You have one new follower”.
The one-and-a-half minute teaser that was recently released, gives us a glimpse of a guy who is stalking girls on social media. He is seen saving pictures of random girls and finally narrows down on a particular girl whom he calls 'Kiran'. In the age of social media when personal information is out there for the whole world to see, Darr 2.0 is not just relevant but a serious subject that demands our attention. The video asks "You sure you know who's watching?" and trust us, it manages to give you the creeps! The video ends on an eerie note.
What remains to be seen is if this 'internet-stalker' series will be able to match Shah Rukh Khan's ruthless stalker moves from Darr! For now, watch the teaser and feel the chills.
