WATCH: Indian Horror Film KRIYA Trailer is Stunning as it is Haunting

Inspired by Indian funeral traditions, "Kriya" is a film about a curse that crosses generations. The film stars Noble Luke and Navjot Randhawa and is directed by New Delhi filmmaker Sidharth Srinivan. In the film, DJ Neel encounters the ravishing Sitara while working a club and is transfixed by her beauty. They return to Sitara’s place where Neel is horrified to see the gagged and shackled body of her dying father – Sitara’s grieving family keeping vigil around it. In India, patriarchal custom dictates that only a son can perform a parent’s last rites, but no such person exists in Sitara’s family. So when her father actually dies during the course of the night, Sitara coerces Neel to officiate the rituals of death. Thrust into a world of magic and transgression, Neel finally attempts to flee his waking nightmare. But as dawn breaks, it becomes evident that Sitara’s family is afflicted by an ancient curse. One that Neel is now very much a part of. Catch the official poster and trailer for the film below:


This is Sidharth Srinivasan’s first horror work, "Kriya" promises to have a seductive allure with a very unique deadly bite. It is going to be an aesthetically beautiful film, mystically atmospheric and imbued with a creeping unease. The 95 minute long film will have its world premiere on the upcoming Fantasia International Film Festival on August 20 to September 2, 2020.
