What it is About?

Review


  • The plot is loosely based on the urban legend of “Nale Ba” that went viral in Karnataka in the 1990s.he myth goes “a witch roams the streets in the night and knocks the door. The witch apparently speaks in voices of your kin so you would be deceived to open the door. If you open it then you will die.” So the residents came up with a smart idea of writing “Naale Baa” meaning “come tomorrow”outside the doors and the walls of their house. So when the ghost reads it and it goes back to come again the next day and the cycle repeats.
  • I loved the comical spin on this folk legend honestly! I am yet to find a Bollywood horror movie that gives me goosebumps like the Hollywood ones. So, I wasn’t really expecting much but it does have a feminist message to deliver which is rather plausible
  • The movie is high on laughs and pretty entertaining although the ending let me down.

Overall, just a one time watch!
