Often thrillers demand a lot more creativity than horror movies. Thriller play on our emotions concentrating our mind on enigmatic events till the very end. They make you puzzled with inexplicable circumstances giving you a chance to resolve the mystery yourself. What about a new upcoming project called Kidnap? What is it going to be? Another illogical story with no explanation in the end or a capturing action filled with tears, emotions and detective mystery elements? Let’s see…
