The trailer appears quite intriguing as it is instantly clear that the family has entered dangerous territory soon after they reach their village. Shabana Azmi’s grandmother looks like she knows more than she is letting on. As far as the female infanticide bit is concerned, the film appears to be making a strong statement on the social evil, but it is yet to be seen if it will as effective as it appears in the trailer.

As 10-year-old Shivangi witnesses her entire family fall deeper into the secrets of the black well, she’s put to the ultimate test. Interweaving elements of drama, suspense and grounded horror, the film is an exciting watch for discerning Netflix audiences.”
