After making it big in the telly industry, Hina Khan recently stepped into the world of films with Vikram Bhatt’s ‘Hacked’. It’s only been a few months and she is back with another thriller ‘Unlock’ opposite Kushal Tandon. In fact, the makers have already dropped the teaser and it looks intriguing. Hina plays the part of Suhani and according to its official synopsis, “Suhani realizes that she is about to lose her love Amar, she decides to download an app that is believed to grant a person’s most sinister wishes.” And apparently, it kills people(?) or so it seems like! The promo starts with the discovery of a dead body and a very baffled Hina. She then learns about a site ‘jahan aap kisika bhi murder karwa sakte ho.’ What follows is a montage of a murder mystery around a distorted robotic voice of the app that grants wishes.
Both Hina and Kushal who will be sharing screen-space for the first time–took to social media to share the teaser. And while Hina asked, “Got a dark side you want to #Unlock? We’ll make your wish come true. Releasing 27th June only on ZEE5. #NoTurningBack #UnlockOnZEE5 #AtrangiDekhoAtrangiRaho,” Kushal probed went deep. He wrote, “The genre of dark web is not explored in Bollywood and is extremely synonyms to the times we are living in. The reality is getting blurred with digital advancement and who knows, soon we will have an assistant voice as our best friend! Unlock premiers on 27!what if your three wishes are granted, but with a price.”
The sci-fi film has been directed by Debatma Mandal and produced by Wind Horse Films and Krasnaya Corporation. It also stars Aditi Arya and Rishabh Sinha and will be out on Zee5 on June 27.
