Thrills and chills are the signatures of the Nushrratt Bharuccha starrer movie “Chhorii” which uses the horror genre to tell a story of domestic violence, pain, superstitions, and female infanticide.
Directed by Vishal Furia, the story follows a young couple (the girl is pregnant and in her 8th month) forced to lie low and disappear into a remote village to avoid loan sharks with the help of their old driver.
The driver and his wife have a small farmhouse in the center of a huge sugarcane field with tall grass (any fans of ‘In The Tall Grass’ Netflix flick will catch this and possibly judge the storyline but it’s far from it).
The plot thickens when the pregnant girl starts seeing three kids and their godmother who tease her to play with them and she also hears lullaby (a typical Bollywood horror element) but it’s far from it. She soon gets to experience the story behind the death of the ghosts that haunt her, and the movie is all about how good wins over evil!
Love the spine-chilling thrills when watched alone as well as the main protagonist’s innocence turned to someone who winds up becoming the savior and breaks the vicious curse!
