Chhorii Movie Review: Nushrratt Bharuchha and Mita Vasisht Are Both Too Good in This Chilling Tale With Some Creepy Surprises! (LatestLY Exclusive)

Chhorii Movie Review: When Bollywood tries a horror movie, expecting something good is not the first expectation you have. Movies like Raat, Bhoot, Tumbbad or even Even they are a unique occurrence on a blue moon. Otherwise, what we get are South Korean or Hollywood horror movie knockoffs, or grueling extensions of franchises that sell more on cheap scares and squalor. ChhoriiFortunately, it belongs to the best variety. It’s creepy, it’s scary in places, has good acting, and conveys a message that doesn’t feel pushed down your throat. Chhorii: Nushrratt Bharuccha Talks About Her Role As A Pregnant Woman In Upcoming Amazon Prime Video Horror Movie.

It helps that director Vishal Fury just needs to remake his own acclaimed Hindi movie. Chhorii, for the uninitiated, is the official remake of the 2017 Marathi movie Lapachhapi. But just because a director is remaking his own movie doesn’t mean it has to be good. Look what happened to Dybbuk, the Hindi remake of EsdrasBoth share the same director, yet the remake turns out to be an inferior copy of the original.

So what did he do Chhorii do the right thing? For one thing, it did not compromise either the storytelling or the aesthetic compromised by the value of the stars, and it managed to create the same atmospheric feel as the original Marathi film. That said, I wish Vishal had fixed some of the writing flaws in the original to make the remake a little better. More on that later.

Chhorii revolves around Sakshi (Nushrratt Bharuchha … hoping she won’t add any more letters to her name in her next film), a teacher who is eight months pregnant. When her husband Hemant (Saurabh Goyal) becomes entangled with the debtors, they decide to stay in the village of their driver Kajla (Rajesh Jais).

Kajla’s house is in the middle of a huge sugar cane field with no other houses in the vicinity, except for the abandoned house of her deceased younger brother, where the couple are staying. Kajla’s wife, Banno (Mita Vasisht), takes care of Sakshi, although there are times when her behavior becomes strange. As Sakshi’s stay in this dwelling extends further, she begins to see and experience strange sights and sounds. We see ghostly children, a radio that sings a spooky lullaby, and Banno’s behavior grows weirder every day.

When Sakshi decides that enough is enough, she convinces Hemant to leave the place, but before they can do so, a greater evil prevents her from escaping.

Watch the trailer:

Horror movies are the creepiest when it comes to a pregnant female lead, either Rosemary’s baby or Within (Please don’t watch this if you want to lose sleep for the week.) Chhorii You get that added benefit, but it gets even creepier when the movie brings real-life horrors like social misogyny and infanticide into the mix. For the first hour or so, Chhorii takes a little time to organize the terrifying setup. It attracts you to think that you could have a scary quick scary movie, with some fake scary jumps.

There are a couple of scenes that stand out. Like that awkward opening scene, which I had to peek through my fingers. Or the chilling story involving a crow, a dead tree, and a snake that Banno tells Sakshi, which might end on an emotional note but predicts the viewer what to expect later.

ChhoriiHowever, it improves after Sakshi sees the first ghostly child. Still, the movie keeps you under false pretenses about how it will unfold. However, I was pleasantly surprised when the movie places Sakshi in a chilling maze that allows her to experience some terrifying hallucinations and witness some incidents that might make your nerves twitch. The BG score, visuals, and clever use of fantastic makeup and CGI, not to mention the use of sugarcane fields as a puzzling setting, amplify the cooldown factor. Events take some surprising twists here, and we find some unexpected pathos. The second hour of Chhorii it’s a real highlight of the movie.

However, there are two decisions about the making of the story that bothered me, even after the movie ended. One is when Banno tells Sakshi another story, which I don’t think the latter needed to hear. I think that story, inadvertently spoiling what it is, was intended for the audience as a kind of misleading exposition. Second is the twist in the climax on a certain character that is easy to guess, further helped by Banno’s story. Slightly disappointed in the ending that doesn’t exactly give the complete satisfaction you want from the ending. Dybbuk Movie Review: Emraan Hashmi and Nikita Dutta’s Horror-Thriller lack good ghosts.

The performances are pretty good. Nushhratt gives enough credibility as a perplexed lead but bold enough. The second half relies heavily on her act, and Nushhratt deftly pulls off those difficult scenes with enough self-assurance and a hint of vulnerability. Mita Vasisht is absolutely top-notch as the older woman, who certainly keeps some very dark secrets close to her chest. Rajesh Jais and Saurabh Goyal perform their parts well. Did you know that Shah Rukh Khan’s #SiwaySRK ad co-star Rajesh Jais made his Bollywood debut with a King Khan film?

Hurrah!

– The performances

– The second half

Now go ahead!

– Slow pace in the first half

– A couple of questionable storytelling twists

Final thoughts

Like a horror movie Chhorii it is a very pleasant surprise. When I say ‘nice’, I mean quite a creepy surprise. With a clever combination of minimal settings, chilling visuals, and effective performances, the movie keeps you engaged in the horror story until the very end. Chhorii airs on Amazon Prime Video.
