Mike Flanagan is happy with Bollywood remake of Oculus

Filmmaker Mike Flanagan of Absentia, Hush, and Ouija (Origin of Evil) fame shared the Bollywood version poster of his acclaimed horror film Oculus (2013). The Bollywood remake is titled Dobaara (Again) and stars Huma Qureshi reprising the part played by Karen Gillan in the original.

Flanagan wrote on his Official Facebook page "Here's the teaser poster for DOBAARA... the Bollywood remake of OCULUS. This makes me so weirdly happy."

Dobaara was earlier planned for May 2nd, 2017 release in India, however, it was later changed to June 2nd, 2017. The film is directed by Prawaal Raaman who has earlier directed Indian films such as Gayab, 404 Error Not Found, Darling, Main aur Charles which was loosely based on serial killer Charles Sobhraj. Mike Flanagan still credited as the original writer and executive producer of the Bollywood version.

Flanagan is currently busy with Stephen King's adaptation Gerald's Game and soon to be announced The Haunting of Hill House. In the meanwhile, Dobaara not only borrows the film's plot, but it also borrows the poster and the tagline too.. See Your Evil!
