Good movie, cud hav been better with a black n white cinematography or with the avoidance of the over indulgence of colors.
Set during the colonial regime, men from a village who has history of female abuse turns up dead. An aristocratic man returns from London to the same village. One of his elder bro was also found dead like the rest of the men, his another elder bro moved outta the family's ancestral mansion.
People claim that the murders r done by a witch as inverted footprints r found near the crime scenes.
I liked the film as it has the same vibe of The Hound of the Baskervilles. It has a creepy forest filled with year round fog, a chariot, old ruins, big mansion, swamps, etc.
The climax is predictable but the story is thought provoking n very relevant. This ain't ur typical Bollywood film with the songs n unnecessary subplots.
The drawback is the red color n lack of suspicious characters.
Since it is a period film n a gothic horror story based on a folklore legend, the over indulgence of too much color ruined the feel of the movie.
Everything is colorful from the peacock feathers to the paan leaf.
They shud have aimed at the black n white cinematography for the atmosphere n tone.
Where exactly did the elder bro moved out n why the hell did he come back later n why sleep alone in that mansion.
