Released in 1980's "Gehrayee" was a misfit given the realms of horror genre as defined by Ramsay's (read that as soft porn). Whilst audience were expecting to be titillated with skimpy outfits, deep cleavages, rape scenes here "Gehrayee" delivered none. Today when intelligent thrillers like "Manichithrathazhu/ Chandramukhi/ Bhool Bhulaiyaa" are appreciated, in comparison "Gehrayee" was ahead of its times.

The screenplay is awesome, within first 15-minutes you are sucked into the narrative. Authencity of the Kannada culture plays a vital role. Background score elevates the viewing experience. There is no over the top production values, the sets are down to earth and you almost feel moving around in them.

Shreeram Lagoo represents the logical/ rational mind within all of us. Indrani Mukherjee is the typical dutiful Indian wife for whom Pati is Parmeshwar. Anant Nag represents the hot young blood - opposer. Using the character of Padmini Kolhapure the director tags us into the path of unknown. Amrish Puri appears in a short role and leaves a lasting impact (was Maularam inspired from Puttachary?). Sudhir Dalvi does his part with utmost grace. Rita Bhaduri is practically in a special appearance. Anant Nag's girlfriend hardly contributed to the proceedings. Song by Kishore Kumar/ Laxmikant-Pyarelal/ Gulzar was of no use. The director duo have done a commendable job. A must watch intelligent thriller.
