Our intent was to create a consistent visual experience and color palette for our viewers - generally you will see inconsistencies in the color palette. From night to day shots we wanted the entire grid to be consistent."
The director added, "Therefore, we took a lot of care in the costume designing, in production design, the kind of clothes we want to avoid, the kind of colors we want to avoid, and it had to match with completely different locations. Goa is completely warm, and Bombay is both humid and warm, and Thailand is tropical while Manali which is extremely cold – across these many locations and climates, we wanted to create a visually seamless experience for our viewers.
He further added that, "We had to match all these looks and make it a consistent grid which was a creative challenge. But it also lent the story a certain skin and tone which it demanded. The story unravels over a long period of time. I wanted people to feel that they have read a novel and experienced these locations and experiences vividly. Shooting across these widely different locations helped us do that."
V is a good versus evil story. The movie is a romantic thriller where a cop falls in love with a crime writer and everything is perfect until a killer challenges the cop with a puzzle to solve.
