New Delhi: Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, the directors of 'Go Goa Gone', proved their skills with 'Shor in the City' but their real test is going to happen now as their latest film is dealing with a theme which is not very known to the Indian audience.
'Go Goa Gone' is publicised as a zombie-comedy film which has a special appearance by Saif Ali Khan. The film stars Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwari and Puja Gupta in pivotal roles, and is based on the audacious adventures of three friends.
The first trailer of the film generated a good buzz and Saif Ali Khan's look has become a talked about thing, but will the film turn out to be engrossing as well?

The success of 'Go Goa Gone' will largely depend on the critical acceptance as it marks the beginning of a new genre in Bollywood. Zombies have been featured in Bollywood in the past but they have never been a part of comedy films.
Rohit Vats of IBNLive was inside the theatre to live tweet the experience of 'Go Goa Gone'.
