Horror fiction entailing on reality.
A take on the femlae infacticides that takes place in North-western cities of the country has been highlighted in the movie. It has been portrayed in a way that it makes people aware of the crime. Starts with the usual paranormal synopsis, Kaali Khuhi inclines to portray a supernatural factors played a pivotal in the entire movie. The story mainly revolves around the small girl Shivangi, played by Riva Arora.
The dark themed movie talks about the revenge that the entity of a small girl seeks to take from her family members. As per the rituals, the girl children used to get killed by being thrown into the well, which was named with the title of the movie, Kaali Khuhi or the black well.
With a quiet confusing drops, the movie has shown four generations fighting their own battle. First is the grand ma, who was the light bearer of the ritual from the family. Aparently her daughter who was killed later became the bawling spirit who went on a siege by killing people. This old lady keeps on harrassing her daughter-in-law for not taking the pills, which was supposed to bring her a male-child. The second generation played by Satya, played by Shabana Azmi, who had a turmoil faced while her daughter was taken to be killed. She gets the memories of her daughter which is a made-up hallucination , probably created by the entity, or her own guilt.
The third generation is being portrayed Sanjeeda Shaikh, who played the role of Shivangi's mother, Priya. She has a little to contribute in the story, other than her protest of not letting Shivangi to suffer for being a girl child. The fourth and last generation has been played by Shivangi, who got struck in this strange politics and paranormal activities. But as the story proceeds towards the end, she proved to be the one, who solved the apparent issue.
Although a various folds are yet to be covered, the story over-all captures a story-line, that gets a few sudden flashbacks which make its impossible enough to realise the difference between the story-based fiction and the reality, it is trying to show. Not a very horrific, in terms of the horror genre, but is a good one to follow.
