Where To Watch Chhorii: Adapted from the critically acclaimed Marathi film Lapachhapi (Hide and Seek) Nushrratt Bharuccha’s Chhorii is touted to be a dark and unsettling horror film, and it is coming to OTT this week.
While Hindi films are gradually returning to the silver screen, Bharuccha’s next will have a direct-digital release, like the recent Kartik Aaryan starter Dhamaka and Meenakshi Sundareshwar featuring Sanya Malhotra and Abhimanyu Dassani. Here’s what we can tell you about the release plan of Chhorii.
What is Chhorii about
Going by trailer that was released on November 16, Chhorii seems to be about a heavily pregnant woman who must protect her unborn child from a ghost that lurks in a desolate Haryanavi village.
In the trailer, we see Sakshi, who is an expecting mother, on the run with her partner Hemant. The couple is seeking a place to lie low for some time. This leads them to an isolated house surrounded by large sugarcane fields. The house is inhabited by an old couple who seem to know more than they tell.
Unknown to Sakshi, who is eight months pregnant, there seem to be evil forces in the surrounding dense sugarcane fields who are after her and her unborn child. While the mother-to-be tries her best to save her baby and herself, it appears as if she is losing her sanity to haunting sights of three mysterious kids telling her that “chhoti mai” is calling and a charred monster, along with a frightening lullaby playing on an old transistor. Will Sakshi be able to get out of it safely? Will she be able to protect her unborn child?
The film has been directed by Vishal Furia, who also helmed the original Marathi film on which Chhorii is based. Apart from Bharuccha in the lead, the movie also features Mita Vasisht, Saurabh Goyal, Rajesh Jais, Pallavi Ajay and Yaaneea Bharadwaj.
