A female-powered film– If you enjoy films showcasing powerful female leads then you will thoroughly appreciate ‘Durgamati: The Myth’.

Genre breaking movie – With an awe-striking blend of unconventionality, horror and drama, this conspiracy thriller is indeed a genre breaking film. G.Ashok’s great direction coupled with power packed performances by Bhumi Pednekar, Arshad Warsi, Jisshu Sengupta and Mahie Gill makes it a must watch!

Seamlessly crafted storyline – Unpredictability in a horror-thriller movie is literally what makes or breaks a film, doesn’t it? Well, ‘Durgamati: The Myth’ is one such film where you’d find yourself biting your nails, wanting to know what’s next! The narrative slowly develops as the movie proceeds, making it an effortless yet visually engaging tale of the Hindu Queen, whose spirit takes possession of Bhumi in the film.

A horror film with the perfect comic timing?  – That is pretty surprising, isn’t it? The film is quite a visual feast of Horror, Comedy, and Mythology. It does a wonderful job at easing the audience in with its cleverly timed comical references. Not to forget, the way the film manages to add the perfect bit of comedy without deviating from the plot is Parfait! You surely do not need to order extra food because you are in for a platter with this one.
