Aatma is a spine-chilling horror film about a mother-daughter relationship, with a supernatural element introduced to it. According to director Suparn Verma, "The film has the mother protecting her daughter from the ominous presence of a supernatural force that is always in their midst."
While Bipasha Basu plays the mother, Nawazuddin Siddiqui essays the role of the father and Doel Dhawan plays the child under the spell of the evil eye. Elaborating, Verma said, "Unlike other ghost films which are released in 3D, Aatma is made in 2D. I have narrated the story in a simple manner with minimal use of special effects."
Music directors Sangeet and Siddharth Haldipur, Verma says, have created some haunting music for the film adding, "There is a lullaby which sounds like a nightmare."
Verma, who has directed Acid Factory and Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena, and written screenplay for films like Ugly Aur Pagli, Love Story 2050 and Zameen, says that Aatma will set a new standard in the horror genre. While the music will release by February-end, the film will hit the screens in March.
