About Kaali Khuhi Netflix
Kaali Khuhi is a Punjabi movie set to release on Netflix soon. It can be described as a social drama. Drama is a very broad term housing many sub genres under it. Kaali Khuhi is a social drama as it questions and pokes at the normalcy of societal injustice. In the movie, directed by debutant director Terrie Samundra, the plot revolves around a ten year old girl’s journey of trying to eradicate female infanticide in the state on Punjab. Female Infanticide is used as a social backdrop in the movie to bring awareness and highlight the need of banning this primitive ill practice.
Punjab is a state in India where social issues like drug addiction, child marriage, female infanticide, domestic violence, rape, murders and other horrors created by human kind are always on top. Kaali Khuhi is a movie trying to question this heinous practice of killing female infants over preference and a totally false sense of honour. It brings upon the fact that no human life is inferior or superior to other lives. I am pretty sure that the audiences are going to question this blatant discrimination between genders and I hope this practice will soon become history in our so called independent country.
Kaali Khuhi Netflix is a story that needs to be told in our country. The masses need to know the reason behind Punjab’s declining sex ratio. The public need to know the truth that it is the educated urban bred people who are at the forefront of this insanity.
Cast of Kaali Khuhi Netflix:
The cast of Kaali Khuhi is well planned and brilliant. The child actor Riva Arora, widely known for her remarkable performance in the Vicky Kaushal starrer movie Uri: The Surgical Strike, Salman Khan starrer Bharat and the critically acclaimed Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, plays the role of Shivangi. Shabana Azmi, the veteran actress known for her National Award winning roles in Ankur, Arth, Khandar, Paar and Godmother, plays the role of her aunt, Satya Maasi. Satyadeep Mishra plays the role of Darshan and Sanjeeda Sheikh, a brilliant TV actress, plays the character of Priya.
The director of the movie, Terrie Samunder, is a Sundance Institute Alumna. She is a screenwriter and has directed international award winning short films.
The film is produced by Manomay Motion Pictures.
The writers of this feature film are Terrie Samunder collaborating with David Walter Lelch who have worked together before for BETAMAX, Western Interior Seaway and The Ballad of Pooja and The Blood Below.
A truly well rounded and commendable cast with what seems to be a compelling story; Kaali Khuhi is going to be an instant hit.
Kaali Khuhi Web Series Review
On the surface, Kaali Khuhi seems to be a compelling story with the protagonist being a ten year old girl, Shivangi, fighting against society evil. Punjab being the geographical backdrop is inevitably going to show its magic like it did in the multi cast movies, Udta Punjab. The social issue of female security and safety seems to be the main focus but what I can read between the lines is that the movie has the potential to touch the sensitive topic of male insecurity and ego issue. This feature film will widely bring into focus the inability of humans to see moral right and wrong and the stubborn streak of being close minded.
Men are responsible for this cultural conditioning and stigma that a girl child is bad for the family but women also play some part in this. Counting on the strong acting abilities of Shabana Azmi and Satyadeep Mishra, let’s see what the debutant director Terrie Samunder brings to the table.
Kaali Khuhi IMDB Reviews
Imdb reviews are not yet out but I bet the reviews will be outstanding owing to the brilliant cast, experienced screenwriter duo and a very popular OTT platform like Netflix endorsing this feature film.
Kaali Khuhi Release Date
The release date of the Netflix feature film Kaali Khuhi has not yet been disclosed. It had been scheduled for a release in the year 2020 but with the Corona Virus pandemic raging all over the world, a soon release for this film is looking blurry. With such uncertainty, I am sure that even the filmmakers are unable to decide on a date.
Female infanticide is a pressing issue as it concerns the safety of female children. More movies and feature films like Kaali Khuhi are needed in the world to create awareness about this issue. Such genres are needed to be explored by more people and we need to create a cinema culture dedicated to spreading more information about crimes being done around the country without any fear of action being taken against the culprits. These films can be treated as an eye opener for those people who consider ignorance as bliss. Waiting eagerly for this film which I am sure will give me goose bumps.
