Every David Fincher film is laden with ample twists and turns. However, the last-minute surprise in every Fincher story is what we eagerly wait for. And never did he disappoint us with that climax shocker. And going by the trailer of Raat Baaki Hai, we can figure out that the film is a package full of surprises.

Through his compelling and visually appealing dramas, David Fincher is widely known for creating some strong female characters. While some of them tackled great problems, the others were full of surprises. Similarly, Raat Baaki Hai will be prominently based upon its extraordinary female leads. Paoli Dam’s character of Vasuki is one of them to root for!

Her character has been compared to Gone Girl’s Amy Dunne and hence fans are quite intriguing to see Vasuki’s mysterious side. And this notion of femininity through Vasuki’s character is another reason why Raat Baaki Hai reminds us of the Fincher cinema.

A Restless Protagonist

While Fincher has given some well-written female characters, his films portray broken male characters. And these heroes struggle to sustain control over their lives and fortunes. Going on similar lines, Raat Baaki Hai has Annup Sonii’s Kartik in the spotlight. A writer by profession, Kartik is the restless protagonist of the story who gets entangled in a murder case.

The story revolves around Kartik’s life while he deals with the dilemma of his wife’s tragic death and the return of his ex-lover Vasuki.

A Puzzled Plot!

Every David Fincher film is no less than a puzzle for the audience. While the director has the capability to hijack our eyes, the atmosphere he creates through his story is enthralling. Raat Baaki Hai also has a perfectly even mystery at its heart. This puzzled storyline captures the themes of love, betrayal, and insecurities.

Essaying these relevant themes, the conflict in Raat Baaki Hai ensues following a murder investigation. So, there are two sides of the story, one that revolves around a murder mystery and the other one of the characters’ past stories. Another aspect why we are rooting for the upcoming film.

Visual-Based Storytelling

While most Indian films are narrative-oriented, the visuals have become a new element in modern storytelling. However, most of the David Fincher films have always been visually striking. And following this interesting cinematic element, Raat Baaki Hai also has breathtaking visuals. And a certain part of the story will be conveyed through visuals rather than spoonfed through dialogues.

Raat Baaki Hai will be premiering exclusively on ZEE5 from April 16, 2021.
