Contrary to popular perception, Go Goa Gone, whose trailer recieved an enormous reception isn't the frist zombie film of Indiia, but this Luke Kenyy acted and directed Rise of the Zombie is. Now, tackling Zombies while being extremely serious about it is difficult than trivialising and mocking them. The same difference between a Zombieland, Shawn of the Dead and say, the Danny Boyle-directed 28 Days Later. 

 

Luke Kenny plays an anti-social photographer who wanders off deep in the Northern jungles of India after being abandoned by his already miffed girlfriend (Shaitan's Kirti Kulhari), while not bothering to inform his closest friend either. In the jungle a creepy parasite stings him, making the nature-lover turn into a dreadful looking zombie. What follows is barely surprising as predictable trips of wholesome blood (the last time such gore was filthily shown was in Ashwin Kumar's The Forest) atrociously decorate the screen. While Luke doesn't disappoint as a deeply menacing zombie raging with serial-killer like tendencies (his expressions, perfectly in sync with the haircut make him look like a psychotic maniac), what bothers is the plot that leaves no room to twist itself failing to present some capriciously exhilarating action. 

 

Shot like a documentary, the treatment looks interesting and it probably is a deliberate attempt to make it inide-like, but the photography doesn’t evoke the perspiring threat to see a zombie coming out from the woods, or much tension at all. The greatest flaw and I'm hoping this doesn't hold true for Go Goa Gone is the saturation point when too much blood has been shed, and zombies start looking like familiar creatures, slightly distorted and violent of course. 

 

Nonetheless, the film manages to open a genre that was ruefully unexplored in Hindi films, and just for that very reason - for untouched variety of cinema to be encouraged - watching Rise of the Zombie may not be a very bad idea after all.
