What’s the film about?
Netrikann is about a blind woman named Durga, who reaches out to police after she witnesses a hit-and-run. According to Durga, she was riding in a cab when the driver hit a person, packed the body in the boot of his car, alleged that it was a dog and drove away. While police initially has hard time believing a blind woman’s credibility as a witness, Durga proves that while she can’t see, she is a keen observer.
When things don’t go as planned, the woman sets out to hunt the driver herself. However this ends up in a cat and mouse chase, between her and a serial killer, who eventually sets out to kill Durga herself. Will Durga be able to survive using her survival skills, or will the killer get the best of her? Viewers will find out when they watch Netrikann.
