Sumeet Vyas’ ‘High Jack’ is a Trippy Comedy with Interesting Characters
Sumeet Vyas, who rose to fame with the popular web series ‘Permanent Roommates’, is now featuring in a ‘wacky’ film.Produced by Phantom it is a hilarious and unusual hijack story. Sumeet is playing a budding DJ in the film and he even took notes from the famous Indian Disco Jockey Nucleya for his role.
Sharing his experience, Sumeet said, “I keenly observed how he worked on the console. I didn’t want to overdo or go crazy shifting the knobs… Nucleya had specific gestures and hand movements, as his music reaches its crescendo. I’ve tried my best to get that mannerism”.
He added, “He was sweet enough to share his anecdotes on how he prepares his set for a show, when to push the tempo and when to surprise the audience and keep it engaged through the show. To be very honest, he is a master at his craft and I’m just creating an illusion of being a pro at this. I hope I don’t disappoint him.”
The film also features the stand-up comedian, Mantra in a pivotal role. “Comedians are never taken seriously but there are few comedians who are taking themselves very seriously. I was told it is a serious character and that I have no punch line in the film,” said Mantra.
‘High Jack’ is slated for April 20, 2018, release and will be the directorial debut of Akarsh Khurana.
