A cargo ship arrives in Mumbai from Somalia carrying a migrant worker who has been bitten by a “crazy woman”. Unwell, the worker tries to stagger home… Meanwhile, American electrical engineer Nick Burton (Joseph Millson), currently working on wind turbines out in the arid regions 300 miles from Mumbai contacts his pregnant girlfriend Ishani (Meenu Mishra). Their relationship is having a rough patch: Ishani’s father (Sandit Datta Gupta) doesn’t approve. He also doesn’t know Nick has impregnated his daughter. Ishani tells Nick that things are happening in Mumbai… some kind of riot. Nick promises he will make it there, so they can work everything out. However, from his vantage point up one of the huge turbines, he sees things beginning to unravel: a man is attacked; someone rushes to pack a vehicle and leave; people are wandering seemingly aimlessly in the desert. Sensing something is wrong, he decides to set off to find Ishani. Unfortunately, the ensuing zombie apocalypse will make that increasingly difficult, as he has to rely on the help of a young orphan boy, Javed (Anand Gopal), to act as guide through an increasingly hostile environment.
If you are a fan of the first film, then this is more of the same with added… spices. That isn’t a bad thing. In fact, it’s a great thing. The first movie, set in Africa, gave us a hitherto untouched resource for the zombie film. This film may not be the first zombie film set in India, but it’s still a wonderfully exotic location. The Ford Brothers (Howard J, and Jonathan) approach the new locale with even more innovation than their African set original. There are some moments in this film that you will have never seen before, and a few that are of course recycled elements from other zombie movies.Tweet
