A story with rich characters, suspense, horror , haunting music and last but not the least the dolis with their red brides. We see the ever present dread through the eyes of the common villager and the village elites. How the suspecting villagers lead their lives and marry their daughter with the fear of the present monster is the essence of the movie.
