The terrifying creature that will be seen in Vikram Bhatt’s upcoming movie, Creature3D is actually a Brahma Raksh. According to Indian folklore, Brahma Rakshas are powerful and demonic spirits of evil brahmins who possess immense powers. Legend goes on to say that very few people in the world can fight and overcome these spirits.
Interestingly, there are many temples across India where Brahma Rakshas are idolised and worshiped as demi-gods. Bhatt has created his own version of a Brahma Raksha, at times referring to the Brahma Rakshas that are built in temples, to create the physical features. After infusing intensive research with his vivid imagination, Bhatt created the almost 10 foot tall creature with six foot tail. The director has incorporated his own voice for sounds that the creature makes throughout the film. Interestingly, the creature will have almost 50 minutes of screen time. “Vikram had to give voice modulations, which would vary from very low to high pitch for the parts where the creature was angry, in pain etc. After recording his voice, a software called Dehumaniser was used to mix and create the monster sounds. This technology was also used in films like Avatar and Godzilla. Throughout the film, the noises that the creature makes is originally Vikram’s,” revealed Vinod Bhanushali, President, Marketing and Promotions, T-Series.
Bhatt, said Bhanushali has also created the expressions for the monster by actually contorting his own face. The VFX technicians cloned Bhatt’s expression and replicated it on the creature’s face.You can say the creature is Vikram’s ‘baby’,” said Bhanushali.
Creature 3D, starring Bipasha Basu and Pakistani actor Imran Abbas is India’s first sci-fi creature film.
