The story of the film is set in Chanderi – a small town in Madhya Pradesh where locals believe that a bride’s wandering spirit moves around the streets of the town for four days during an annual pooja. As per their beliefs, this woman calls young, unsuspecting men – thrice and after they turn back, she considers it as their acceptance to be with her. The man then disappears from the town.
Villagers also believe that if they write a particular sentence on the walls of their houses, the spirit won’t harm them.
Last week, the film faced competition from Ayushmaan Khurrana’s ‘Andhadhun’, Aayush Sharma’s ‘LoveYatri’ and Tom Hardy’s ‘Venom’ but managed to do a decent business.
