Rise of the Zombie’ has got very little press, but whatever it got, it said that it was the first Zombie Origin movie. ‘Rise of the Zombie’ stars Luke Kenny, Kirti Kulhari, Benamin Gilani and others, and here is the complete review of this Bollywood Zombie movie.

Neil and Vinny is a young urban couple, who are going through a bad phase in their relationship, primarily because Neil, a famous photographer fails to keep in contact with Vinny. After a bad breakup, Neil goes to a sparsely populated village and its nearby forest for a photography stint, and is bitten by a spider, which then devolves him into a zombie. We would have loved to have added ‘what happens next forms the rest of the movie’, but unfortunately there is no ‘what happens next’.

‘Rise of the Zombie’ has one of the most blockheaded scripts to have hit Bollywood in recent times, and we even count Himmatwala in our list of Bollywood scripts. We fail to understand why Neil does not undertake medical help as soon as he is bitten by the spider, even when there is a strategic scene that shows him buying all kinds of medicines. We also fail to understand why Neil hides the fact that he is bitten by a spider throughout the movie – even from his village help – until he becomes a full-fledged zombie and eats up his friend as well as the village help, not to mention two village belles.

We also fail to understand how three of a friend’s groups simply ignore the fact that one of their friends, world renowned photographer, is missing for more than ten days, and there are no alarm bells sounded anywhere. This script is full of more plot holes and mishaps than an average Mumbai road during the rains.

Speaking about the script and the screenplay, Rise of the Zombie writers do not bother themselves with the human touch of a human being turning into a zombie, apart from some fleeting sequences here and there. Even in The Walking Dead, there is a very simple but heartwrenching sequence where a husband cannot kill his Zombified wife, and here, in the land of drama and emotions, this is something sorely missed.

Then again, this movie is a blueprint of what doesn’t happen on a trek. Apparently, this photographer goes into the densest of forests all alone, and even though he has the intelligence to take an entire tent worth of stuff with him, including beer, he ignores a bite that causes his hand to become a red chunk of meat within forty eight hours. What is more surprising is that he ignores a magical ointment that is given to by him a village medicine man – and keeps on shouting ‘What is happening to me! What is happening to me!’

Real time trekkers will balk at the fact that they have actually shown one man going on a trek that lasts for weeks, if not months. As an amateur photographer and smalltime trekker, I’d like to point out that the thumb rule is that no trek is done alone – even in a group, trekkers are supposed to move about in group of twos. As for the spiderbite being ignored, that simply wouldn’t happen. Any trekker/photographer with an iota of experience will immediately call off the trek or at least excuse themselves and head to the nearest village for medical care.

There is nothing going for the movie. The camera angles and sound effects are common fare by now, and with the brainless plot, the uniqueness of seeing an Indian become a zombie is adulterated with ridiculousness. And the ending part where they show Benjamin Gilani with a sword killing zombies and promising a ‘Land of the Zombie’ is hilarious.
