Kehri Singh (Pankaj Tripathy) is a poor farmer who buries his new born girl child alive. The birth of two sons later doesn’t change his fortunes for the better. Desperate, he turns to a travelling godman who tells him that the only way out for him is to adopt a girl child. A baby girl is brought home, whom he names Preet (Ragini Khanna) and assuredly, Kehri Singh’s fortunes turn. From being a nobody, he becomes the feared face of modern Gurgaon. Preet is a very complexed and disturbed girl who has a lot of mental upheavals within her. Because she has been adopted and raised by Pankaj Tripathy and her foster brother Nikki played by Akshay Oberoi always insults her leading to many more insecurities within her. Professionally she is an architect and then one big assignment turns her life into a horror. The film is well directed by DOP turned director Shankar Raman. Ragini Khanna is an excellent performer and gives her all in a top notch performance in this one. Pankaj Tripathy is a trained actor and it shows in his performance. Akshay Oberoi plays his meanie role with panache. Anna Ardor is good. Vivek Shah’s lensing is a mellow and sublime dance of light and shadows is stylish but far-from-cozy interiors. Naren Chandavarkar and Benedict Taylor’s thoughtful score comprises mostly ambient music, interspersed with songs composed and sung with heart-rending pathos by Cyli Kharre. A film not meant for the faint hearted but for those who like noir and horror films, head to the nearest theater to catch this rather differently made film.
