From the director of Gayab and Darna Mana Hai,here’s another psychological suspense thriller in the offing. Set in a medical institution,the plot has two central characters; science professor Aniruddh (Nishikant Kamat),who denies the existence of the paranormal and Abhimanyu (Rajvvir Aroraa),a rational college student.

The story revolves around a fabled room that the students believe is haunted. Professor Aniruddh decides to dispel all rumours and checks into the room. But,will the professor’s entry debunk the mystery or will he be confronted by genuine terror?

Director Prawaal Raman says: I found the subject matter exciting; that’s why I decided to take it up. I chose to title the film 404 as it denotes the syntax error ‘page not found’ or ‘wrong page’. The story developed as I was doing the research. The idea of the medical institute came into being when I met a couple of professors during the research.

The film was shot at the Forest Research Institute in Dehradun. Nishikant Kamat plays the lead in the film. I had seen one of his earlier films and that’s when I decided to cast him. I told him that he was a great director and people should know that he can be a great actor too. I hope my film achieves that.

The Buzz

The film marks the debut of Imaad Shah as a music director. Imaad has a band of his own and is known to perform with them at the Delhi University campus whenever time permits. Prawaal Raman heard a couple of Imaad’s compositions and loved them.
