Mid way through the film you will realize, the plot is nothing new. It deals with a serious social issue related to women in villages and even cities till date. However, the way the film moves forward makes sure that you are still invested in the film despite knowing what is to come.
The setting of this film is amazing, a house in between tall grasses, perfect setting for a spooky film. But I'll be honest, there are only a few jumpscares thanks to the loud jumpscare music that helps. Once, the back story starts to unravel, the horror dissappears completely. However, the way the back story is revealed is something I really liked. That is what kept invested even after knowing what's coming .
The climax final revelations are shocking . However, the treatment is not up to the mark. You feel that impact missing solely because the last revelations are shown as mere montages and not fully fledged sequences. Had they shown a full sequence, the impact would have been much more hard hitting and emotional sadly that emotion is less , if not missing completely. Being promoted as a horror, there is not much of it.
Nushrat bharucha till date can't convince me that she is 35+. She looks so young in films and here, her role is kind of a challenging one and she's done a good job. Mita vashishth is a show stealer, from her accent to her way of talking impressed me . Rest everyone were good too.
Overall, a film that can definitely be watched its not at all a torture or any sort of thing like that . Watch it for the issue dealt with the film, watch it for performances, don't expect too much of horror or spine chilling moments and yeah, the director could have treated the climax much better.
