Akshay Kumar‘s Toilet – Ek Prem Katha is currently being shot in Mathura in a major 40 day schedule. The man at the helm of affairs is Shree Narayan Singh who is looking at making it big in the world of Bollywood as a director. However, one fact about him is that he is also an established editor and one of his upcoming works is horror-musical Saansein – The Last Breath.
“Shree Narayan Singh has been consistently doing some very good work as an editor,” informs our source, “He has been the man behind all Neeraj Pandey films, be it A Wednesday, Special 26, Baby, Rustom or even short film, Ouch! In fact he would also be editing the next Neeraj Pandey film, Crack.”
Majority of the aforementioned films features Akshay Kumar in the lead role, which further adds credibility to Shree’s work as a technician.
“This is the reason why Saansein – The Last Breath too is looking like a slick affair,” says a senior unit member of the horror flick, “He knows how to make a film truly fast paced with twists and turns brought on screen in a seamless manner. He specializes in the thriller zone and since Saansein too is a roller coaster ride, the makers felt that he was best suited for the job.”
Saansein – The Last Breath tells the story of a young woman [Sonarika Bhadroia] who is a singer at a night club and disappears from the scene every night. Intrigued, the lead protagonist of the film, Rajniesh Duggall tries to figure out her whereabouts and the mystery behind her suspicious acts. The revelation that follows hits him like a thunderbolt.
“It is this roller coaster ride of the narrative that necessitated an experienced editor on board,” the unit member adds, “Director Rajiv S. Ruia is an experienced filmmaker and has been around for a decade and a half now. Saansein – The Last Breath is his first ever horror musical and he has pitched the film on a very good scale while also giving it a polished look. With Shree Narayan Singh coming on board, the film has turned out to be ultra-slick with a very fast paced narrative.”
No wonder, the film’s length is just 100 minutes. “That’s the apt duration for a film belonging to this genre,” says producer Goutam Kumar Jain, “A horror film should hold you well right through its duration and that makes the job of the editor all the more important. You can’t have any loose ends whatsoever and audience should not get even a minute to pause and think.”
We look forward to what unfolds on screen now!
