Mumbai: Director Kanishk Verma said hostage drama is a popular genre in the West and he drew inspiration from popular author Vince Flynn’s real-life events and books for his upcoming action thriller Sunak-Hope Under Siege.
The film stars Vidyut Jammwal, Rukmini Maitra, Neha Dhupia and Chandan Roy Sanyal. Varma hopes to change the game in the action-entertainment space as this intriguing story unfolds in the siege of a hospital.
Talking about the genre, Varma said, it is a very popular style in the west, but it is very difficult to come across.
He said that Sunak was born out of lockdown last year.
He said, I was doing some other work which involved going to four to five continents and then the lockdown happened. So I thought of doing something that is production friendly and which I can do inside an enclosed space.
He added, “I have always been a fan of Die Hard which is a genre in itself. Movies like Speed and Air Force One actually die hard on the bus and on the plane, respectively. It simply became a genre in itself.
Likewise, the craze has a lot of real-life incidents that we’ve taken of and popular author Vince Flynn has a lot of books that inspired me.
The director shared that he has designed them in such a way as not to repeat the action sequences, where in electrical hospital setting, in MRI room, physiotherapy room, aqua therapy room, there is a need to disarm using the magnetic pull of the machine. appear to be fighting.
When we were designing the action sequences for the film, I was very clear that it should be an old Hong Kong style action, similar to Hollywood action superstars like John Woo and what people saw in the movie John Wick. The craze has the characteristics of ballet.
He credited Vidyut for making the action look easy in the film.
With Vidyut, it becomes easy to shoot as he is a prolific martial artist in his own right. I think we did a good job and we tried to keep all the emotions, thrill and intrigue together in the film.
Presented by Zee Studios in association with Sunshine Pictures Pvt Ltd, Sunak – Hope Under Siege will stream on Disney Plus Hotstar Multiplex from October 15. It is a Vipul Amrutlal Shah Production.
