Making a life-or-death reality show come alive on the big screen is no mean feat. But this is exactly what Prime Focus, Bollywood’s leading post-production house, has made possible in Soham Shah’s multi-starrer Luck. The film, loosely based on a reality show format and shot extensively in South Africa, has some nail-biting stunt sequences where the difference between life and death is the contestants ‘luck’.
The Mumbai based post-production house, which has executed vfx for a number of Bollywood films so far, did some extensive work on Luck. The overriding factor on-shoot was the actors’ safety. “As is often the case, this film too demanded the use of computer graphics and visual effects to make possible complex action sequences, including underwater and blasts,” Merzin Tavaria, Creative Director, Prime Focus told Bollywood Hungama, “Our brief required us to make sure that the director’s vision of cutting-edge and fast paced action sequences came alive on screen. We are glad to have achieved the same”
