Shivangi, a ten year-old girl, accompanies her parents Darshan and Priya to Darshan's native village in Punjab, to pay a visit to her grandmother who is ill. However, various cases of mysterious deaths keep plaguing the village, which seems to be the handiwork of a dark force that is somehow connected to past instances of female infanticide in the village. When her own family's life is in danger, can Shivangi rescue them?
The trailer suitably builds up the atmosphere and is full of jump scares. We see a wide-eyed Shivangi trying to make sense of the mayhem unleashed on the village, even as Darshan says he's not going to leave his family there under any circumstances.
Written and directed by Terrie Samundra, the film stars Riva Arora as Shivangi, with a stellar cast including Shabana Azmi, Leela Samson, Sanjeeda Sheikh, Satyadeep Misra and others.
Kaali Khuhi premieres on October 30, 2020 on Netflix.
