Synopsis Anushka Sharma and Parambrata Chatterjee are all set to spook us with their latest offering: PARI – NOT A FAIRYTALE. Mysterious title, scary teasers (nay, screamers) and a promising cast urge us to believe that Anushka’s experiment with horror is going to be rather interesting. The movie is produced under the actress’s banner Clean Slate Films along with Prerna Arora’s KriArj Entertainment. It is directed by the first time director Prosit Roy who also assisted on the sets of PHILLAURI. We have not seen a really good horror movie since long and so will PARI fit the bracket with its perfectly scary, sleek appeal? Let’s find out.

The makers were extremely careful so as to not let any plot details out before the release and hence went easy with their promotions. There is an element of mystery in the story which is NOT let out by its teasers. The film set in Kolkata, is about Rukhsana (Anushka Sharma) who is an orphaned woman. The story builds on the mystery about Rukhsana and we are left perturbed thinking if she is the ghost, or it’s victim? Arnab (Parambrata Chatterjee), a loner, provides shelter to her given that she is distressed and has no one to look out for her. Despite many warnings and family opposition, he develops a liking for her but little does he know that she has an evil, supernatural power. As the story movies forward, we are introduced to more characters. Rajat Kapoor is the spooky, blood thirsty professor in the film, who torments the thoughts of the lead character constantly. He belongs to a controversial exorcists’ group and is hunting down Rukhsana. Arnab is filled with speculation but is enamoured by the wild and vulnerable Rukhsana. As the movie progresses, Arnab goes through a tumult of emotions and is sucked into this mess. The movie then answers the most vital question: Is Anushka the tormented or the tormentor? And also explains us the title in the process.
