Marathi Cinema is coming up with some great concepts this year. Ashwini Bhave, Sumedh Mudgalkar, and Rohit Phalke act in ‘Manjha’, a psychological thriller.

In the trailer, we see a beaten up man and a pregnant woman – possibly his wife – taking refuge in the house of a woman who’s known to them – possibly the man’s mother or grandmother. What starts out as a warm, family outing in a field quickly turns into a trailer full of jump scares and more information about a storyline that has definitely interested us. Vishal Furia directs ‘Lapachhapi’.
Pooja Sawant looks quite promising in her role. The trailer isn’t clear about whether she’s playing two roles or whether it’s the same person in two getups. However, in the little that we could see, Pooja has captured the mannerisms of an urban woman and a rural one quite well.

We loved the jump scares in the trailer. The production values for ‘Lapachhapi’ look pretty decent. Horror fans seem to be in for a good time! Watch the trailer here:
