If you are a true fan of David Fincher’s Gone Girl you won’t dare to miss out on tuning to ZEE5’s upcoming film Raat Baaki Hai. Here’s why we believe so.

David Fincher is the master in the art of hijacking the viewers’ eyes. The filmmaker is quite capable of making the audience engrossed in a mystery. From the gripping Fight Club to the subtle Mindhunter, Fincher has always surprised the audience. And the 2014 film Gone Girl is one of his best works, a layered thriller that seems irreplaceable. While the Gone Girl fans failed to find a similarly nail-biting story, ZEE5’s upcoming original Raat Baaki Hai will come out as a hope for them.

Raat Baaki Hai is an upcoming murder-mystery film that promises to be another gripping ZEE5 thriller. An official adaptation of the popular play Ballygunge, the film features Annup Sonii and Paoli Dam in the lead roles. Raat Baaki Hai portrays the story of a couple’s troubled marriage which eventually takes an unexpected turn.

Considering which, fans are eager for the release of this new suspense thriller as they recalled David Fincher’s Gone Girl. And we agree too!

So, here’s taking a look at five reasons why Raat Baaki Hai will give you a gripping experience as Gone Girl.

Love, Deceit & Revenge

Director Avinash Das has weaved the story of Raat Baaki Hai around the themes of love, deceit, and revenge. In the spotlight of the film are two estranged lovers Kartik and Vasuki who meet after a long time. Well, a series of strange events bring them together. While Kartik becomes a prime suspect in his wife’s murder, the film further unfolds with unexpected twists and turns.

The story will portray the theme of love, deceit, and revenge with different and gripping subplots. Fincher’s Gone Girl explored similar themes amidst an intriguing story.

Layers Of A Troubled Marriage

In Gone Girl, Nick and Amy seem to be a perfect couple. However, after a couple of years of their marriage, troubles ensue. The film perfectly captures different aspects of a troubled marriage which eventually becomes the crux of the story. Similarly, in Raat Baaki Hai, Kartik and Vaani’s married life will be a major highlight of the film.

It will be a vital angle in this thrilling saga which is another reason why we believe the film will give us chilling vibes similar to Gone Girl.

A Twisted Murder-Mystery

Vaani is the victim in the film Raat Baaki Hai. And actor Rahul Dev will be investigating her murder mystery. Kartik is on the top of his suspect list. However, as the case proceeds further, Dev’s character realizes that apart from the murder, a big picture lays ahead. This change of narrative will eventually intrigue the viewers.

Also, in Gone Girl, this was an important aspect where many times we empathized with Amy. And at times we felt Nick deserves our sympathy. Similarly, Raat Baaki Hai will leave the viewers in a dilemma as new revelations will surface over.

Between Feminism & Misogynism

The long-ranging debate Gone Girl raised was whether the story is feminist or misogynist. Though there are many reasons why the film would belong to a particular type, the film’s climax explained how it lies somewhere in between the two types. There’s no cemented commentary taking one side. Moreover, the film paces as a balanced thriller playing with viewers’ intuitions.

Well, it is not clear if Raat Baaki Hai will play around similar lines but going by the setting of the story, it seems possible.

An Ensemble Cast

Each character will have a say and none of them will overshadow the other similar to Gone Girl where we had performers like Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. And this is something that makes for a promising thriller.

Raat Baaki Hai will be premiering exclusively on ZEE5 on April 16th.
