Go Goa Gone is a 2013 Indian comedy horror feature film directed by Krishna D.K. and Raj Nidimoru from a screenplay co-written with Sita Menon. The Illuminati production stars Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwari, Puja Gupta and Hardik Malaviya.


A group of friends, just looking to have a good time in a rave party on a remote island in Goa, find out that the island is infested with zombies…


“Das and Khemu have a great rapport and do their best to carry the film. Tiwari’s character seems shoehorned in to make self-aware jokes about being the friend who always gets killed first in horror films. Pooja Gupta fits in better as Luv’s new love interest, Luna. Her presence sparks some amusing conflict between Luv and Hardik, as they compete over her in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.” Access Bollywood

The very difficult balance of making a Bollywood zombie film is handled with extraordinary aplomb by Raj & DK who take the opportunity to create something fresh out of a genre that feels like it has run its course in the west […] While the film is great, it is so different that audiences just may not know what to do with it.” J Hurtado, Screen Anarchy

” …works best in its earliest stages when it’s merely a comedy dependent upon rapid-fire dialogue and word play. Once the reanimated corpses start piling up (aided by fairly shoddy make-up and CGI), it quickly becomes monotonous and repetitive — though at least there’s colorful cinematography and snappy music keep things lively.” Michael Smith, White City Cinema

Go Goa Gone is a pleasant watch, and despite the innumerable scenes depicting flesh and gore, doesn’t leave one with an urge to vomit. The dialogues are witty and are mostly responsible for invoking a laugh. Sense, logic and sensibility be damned – go ‘keel dead peepal’!” Ananya Bhattacharya, Zee News
