‘Chhorii’ trailer for Vishal Furia’s horror drama is finally out giving us all the anticipatory spooks! Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Vikram Malhotra, Jack Davis, Shikhaa Sharma and Shiv Chanana, the upcoming Hindi horror film is the remake of the 2017 Marathi film ‘Lapachhapi’. Sounds similar to what producers Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar did for Emraan Hashmi’s ‘Dybbuk’? Well, we can bet our take on how Bollywood has developed the urge to recreate films that have gained some significant recognition at the regional level.
‘Chhorii’ stars actress Nushrratt Bharuccha in the lead role, who rose to be appreciated for her part in the 2015 comedy ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2’ and was recently seen alongside Rajkumar Rao in the 2020 film ‘Chhalaang’. It is notable that prior to this the actress has primarily been a choice for romantic comedy films. So what Nushrratt offers us as a terrified and confused heroine in the new ‘Chhorii’ trailer is similar to the trope that most Hindi horror films follow but, still stands out on her acting graph.
The premise tells the story of an eight-month pregnant Sakshi (played by Nushrratt Bharuccha) who seeks refuge in an isolated house amidst the sugarcane fields with her husband Hemant. As Sakshi counts her days in the house inhabited by an old, mysterious couple, she soon starts to realize how her surroundings are riddled with dark, untold secrets.

The haunting tale is reminiscent of Netflix’s ‘Kaali Khuki’ and gives us a rather feminist perspective to the horrific premise. The cast for the film also includes Mita Vashisht, Rajesh Jais and Saurabh Goyal in pivotal roles.
The film will release on Amazon Prime Video on 26th November 2021.Instagram & Facebook to keep yourself updated with the latest news and reviews.
