Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Chhorii movie story is completely different from a normal Bollywood horror film. This film has depth in their characters and it has been set in a realistic way. I mean, there is no set to make something up. What is happening is actually shot in the real locations. The director has a good hold on his craft and made a strong horror film which wasn’t expected. The cinematography and story are the strong point. Those who were searching horror element in the first half will be abit upset but it is a too slow burner film that lits up in the end. The characters of Mita Vashisht and Nushrratt were aptly used. Finally some logical horror film in Bollywood, 5 times much better than Dybbuk (2021). The production value of this film is good and overall it’s a good horror film for the masses. The visuals speaks more than dialogues which is so rare in horror genre in Bollywood. The screenplay of this film is slow which is the only drawback of this film.bo
This film has been written and directed by Vishal Furia. This film has been co-written by Vishal Kapoor. This film have been produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Vikram Malhotra, Jack Davis, Shikhaa Sharma, Shiv Chanana.
