Anuja (Kashmirira Irani) starts a new job at a school and is about to get married soon. However his fiancee wants him to leave it because ‘Mother does not like‘. Yes, typical mumbo-jumbo.

One spot on the list is that of Kodala which Neha decided to avoid because there is only one house but Anuja will not be there. They thus arrive in this single house with suspicious people.

At night, Anuja sees something in the backyard that gives her a scare and she makes a run for her life with Neha. All hell breaks loose from there.

What makes you aware of this spine chilling thriller is its description. It begins as a regular story of a girl who is confused about marrying her fiance who does not like her. It then evolves into a horror film, with high BG and subtle jump cuts. If you haven’t seen the trailer of the film, you might not even know what to expect from a ghost or serial killer. But slowly things start to unravel and you drown in the story so fast that no one escapes. Director Pushkar Sunil Mahabal, who is also the editor, has ensured that the pace never drops and you are not distracted. There are scenes that make you restless to know what happens next. For example, where a sledgeball Bhola waits like an animal, he shapes his prey while Anuja tries to get him to start a scooter. By the time the scooter starts your heart racing again!
The story of Ankita Narang is no place for unnecessary drama or screams or screams. It is a story about child sexual abuse and survival that is very poignantly written by Narang and is one of the best films of this year. Remember the time when you wanted to slap the hero for being too brave and trying to deal with only one situation so that they could get trapped? welcome home It gives you the same feeling and does so strongly but what comes out gives you the reason that Anuja was fully confident about what she saw and what not.
In the end the statistics show that the story is about what really happened. The family lived in that house for 20 years and did all kinds of horrific things till Neha and Anuja did not get any thing in their hands. Some scenes are extremely painful, so it is advisable to be cautious, but for those who have to follow up, fix the mood. The story you anticipate cutting the peak, prompts you to hit the forward button. Not because it is boring but because the suspense is getting better in you. What the height of the film is after all of this really happened.
As for the flaws, you might be a little surprised if you are watching a regional film in Marathi too much in a few minutes. Fortunately, subtitled is a huge hit in the world of OTT, but even now, there are people who are not opposed to that practice. This can limit the audience. Also, Anuja’s back story doesn’t really make any sense to the plot and can be avoided. There is a scene where Anuja tells Neha that her mother is dead but later in the film, when Neha asks her who he would ask her to mess with, Anuja says that her mother. So is she dead or not?
The performance of the course deserves a special mention. As I’ve said in many reviews before, OTT has done a tremendous job of sticking to talent rather than star quotient. Due to which they have benefited greatly Kashmira Irani’s sadness, fear, fear and determination to fight back can all be felt as she does an outstanding job. Shard Thigley as Neha is brilliant. But it is Bolarum Das as rebel sledball who deserves much praise. Such naive sight is common for women and slaves never lose their grip on the character.
- Tut thriller
- Superb performance
- Great direction
- Unnecessary backstory
- Very much marathi
final thoughts: welcome home A good psycho-thriller is a must watch for everyone who invests you to the end. It is also essential for all those who want to know why child sexual abuse needs to be tackled vigorously and should not be eliminated as mere statistics.
