Starring Emraan Hashmi, Dybbuk is a remake of the Malayalam hit movie Ezra.
This paranormal horror film is about a historic box that the female protagonist buys and her partner's paranormal encounters. Dybbuk is a wicked possessing ghost thought to be a deceased person's fragmented soul. It is said to leave the host body once achieving its mission, or after being exorcised.
The film looks to be based around established horror clichés found in a variety of previous films in the genre.
Nikita Dutta and Manav Kaul also feature in the film, which was shot in Mauritius and Mumbai. Manav portrays a priest who is called in to execute the spirit-warding procedure.
Dybbuk is a T-Series and Panorama Studios production directed by Jay Krishnan. It will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on October 29.
"A well-made horror picture will always bring big audiences to movie halls," Emraan stated earlier. With Ezra, we intend to push even further and give the public an unforgettable experience. Having worked with Kumarji and Abhishek on previous projects, I am excited to be working with Jay Krishnan on this one.
