It has only been two weeks since the first trailer for the psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller, Mir­ror Game: Ab Khel Shuru, was re­leased, and it has al­ready gar­nered over a mil­lion views.

The film, set in New Jersey, US, re­volves around a psy­chol­ogy pro­fes­sor, played by Parvin Dabas (right), and the dif­fi­cul­ties he faces in his per­sonal and pro­fes­sional life. “I’m glad the trailer was re­ceived so well. It’s a val­i­da­tion that peo­ple are look­ing for­ward to the film, be­cause a trailer es­sen­tially gives you a peek at the film. This also means that there is an au­di­ence for psy­cho­log­i­cal thrillers,” Parvin says.

Speak­ing about the genre, Parvin says that if psy­cho­log­i­cal thrillers from Hollywood do well in In­dia, it proves that peo­ple are in­ter­ested in this kind of cinema. He adds, “Our au­di­ence is open­ing up and ex­per­i­ment­ing, as far as our films are con­cerned. If you give them good con­tent, there will be tak­ers. Look at films like In­cep­tion (2010). They did so well in our coun­try.

“The best thing about this genre is that it makes you think. The story stays with you long after you’ve seen the film, which is why I’m a huge fan of psy­cho­log­i­cal thrillers.”

The film is helmed by di­rec­tor Vi­jit Sharma and also stars Pooja Batra and Omi Vaidya. “I play a pro­fes­sor who is suc­cess­ful, but is go­ing through a per­sonal cri­sis. His wife wants to leave him, and in a sce­nario like this, a re­la­tion­ship can wreak havoc, as a lot is go­ing on in his mind. We have a great en­sem­ble cast and ev­ery ac­tor has played their part beau­ti­fully,” Parvin says.
