Terrie Samundra’s first feature film, Kaali Khuhi (2020), is set in a Punjabi village where a 10-year-old girl (Riva Arora) takes on the challenging task of saving her family from a powerful curse. The edge-of-the-seat suspense-thriller also stars veteran actress Shabana Azmi as well as Satyadeep Mishra, and Sanjeeda Sheikh.
Azmi, who is starring in her first Netflix original film, said, "Kaali Khuhi is a story about fear, love, hope and perseverance, and how, when the odds are stacked against us, we find strength from unlikely places. It's been quite the journey and I'm looking forward to people watching it on Netflix."
The trailer of the drama shows a menacing spirit who preys on Shivangi (Arora) and wants payback for the village’s past sins.
Samundra stated in a press release, “Kaali Khuhi explores the dark history of a family haunted by its gruesome past and entangled in a web of unnatural occurrences. As 10-year-old Shivangi witnesses her entire family fall deeper into the secrets of the black well, she’s put to the ultimate test.”
Kaali Khuhi is produced by Anku Pande and Ramon Chibb. Pande said the young girl's burden of saving her family and an entire village is what makes the film a compelling watch. "The team at Manomay, Ramon and I are excited about it releasing on Netflix, as we feel it will reach horror fans who will truly enjoy the nuances of this film,” said the producer.
The feature is due to be released on Netflix on 30 October.
