Kaali Khuhi Movie Review – A netflix Original Indian Horror Movie starring Shabana Aazmi
The title denotes a “Black well” which hides secrets in its depth. The movie Directed and written by Terrie Samundra and co-written by David Walter Lech and Rupinder Indrajit received a cold response from the OTT audience.
It brings up female infanticide, and to the contrary, it depicts powerful characters of the females in the movie.
It’s a horror movie delivering a strong social message. The sound effects, picturization and cinematography of the movie are good, but the writing’s execution is not very well done.
The story revolves around a 10-year-old girl, “Shivangi” played by Riva Arora, who visits her father’s village in Punjab with her father and mother as her grandmother is ill. The little girl makes an effort to save her family’s village from ghosts.
Shabana aazmi, leading the cast of an old lady, narrating traditional stories of village’s bad spirits.
The well, shown in the movie, is where several female babies were thrown in the ritual name, Which was isolated and closed for years, but a villager opens it, which results in spirits entering the village.
Shivangi meets a girl of her age played by Rose Rathod and another scary girl spirit wearing a red dress which seems to be present in her home. Satya Masi played by Shabana Aazmi knows the secret behind the spirits and guides Shivangi to stop the spirits as she is the new generation. The movie all fails to achieve a great response with a slow and dull plot.
