‘Hot & haunted. Delivered!‘
Pizza – original title: पिज़्ज़ा – is a 2014 Indian 3D Hindi supernatural horror feature film written and directed by Akshay Akkineni.
The movie stars Akshay Oberoi, Parvathy Omanakuttan, Dipannita Sharma Arunoday Singh, Rajesh Sharma, Omkar Das Manikpuri and Sonali Sachdev.
The film is a remake of the 2012 Tamil horror film hit, Pizza, directed by Karthik Subbaraj. The critical and commercial success of the Tamil version led to its remakes in Kannada as Whistle and Bengali as Golpo Holeo Shotti.
The remake right for the Hindi version was bought by Bejoy Nambiar for a whooping 1.5 crore (US$250,000), which by itself is the actual budget of the original version.
Kunal Malkholkar (Akshay Oberoi) is a pizza deliverer who lives with his wife Nikita (Parvathy Omanakuttan). She is an aspiring novelist and is researching for writing a horror story, whereas Kunal does not believe in supernatural powers, and is afraid of anything supernatural.
Nikki keeps telling him that he would soon realize the presence of supernatural beings. At first, Kunal is confused and scared, and his fears are confirmed when he comes to know his boss, i.e., the Pizza restaurant owner Mr. Kapoor’s (Rajesh Sharma) pregnant wife is possessed by a spirit.
Meanwhile, Nikki becomes pregnant. One particular day, Kunal goes out to deliver a pizza to a customer and returns to the restaurant in a state of shock while covered in blood…
