RGV's \"Bhoot Returns\" publicity material and its similarities.

Ram Gopal Verma is back with the sequel of his 2003 hit “Bhoot” which had Rekha, Urmila, Ajay Devgan, Fardeen Khan & Nana Patekar in the lead. The film worked hugely due to its terrifying sounds and many shocking sequences. However content wise it was a kind of remake of RGV’s own cult movie “Raat” which came a decade back in 1992.

The maestro is known to release the first look of his films innovatively with some well designed posters and publicity material. But like one of his recently produced films “Phoonk 2” which had a poster strictly inspired from a Korean film “The Chaser” (on which Bhatt’s “Murder 2” was also based), his latest directorial venture “Bhoot Returns” poster too has some acute similarities with an old Foreign TV channel advertisement.
The publicity design mentioned above is of a Digital Channel which also uses the concept of 4 eyes on the same face (as shown in the poster of “Bhoot Returns”) to give out the message to their viewers about the “4 Outstanding Programmes at the same time”. And it was released in 1999 in France as stated in the link below.
In addition, the six small “Raw Footage” promos of this upcoming film released on the net (at their Official Channel) remind you of similar camerawork or technique used in the surprise horror hit “Paranormal Activity” (2007) and its 3 sequels.
Plus these short promos also made me recall the small fictional horror clips usually found on Mobile Phones (and You Tube too), wherein nothing happens in the whole clip but suddenly in the end a figure comes in front of the camera in a split of second to scare the viewer.
Still, moving ahead of all these possible inspirations, I hope the trendsetter returns to his much awaited form with this sequel for all his die-hard fans, waiting to see another RAAT or BHOOT from the house of RGV.
