Let me brief you a bit about pearl formation. Pearls are formed when an inflammation, let’s say a parasite, enters & embodies a sea animal like oysters, and generates a defense mechanism, a fluid that coats the parasite. Layer upon layer of this coating, called ‘nacre’, is deposited until a lustrous pearl is formed. Now replace inflammation – parasite with women, oyster with a man. Now it’s just the ocean called the world, which flaunts the waves called patriarchy and buries the pearls called feminism.
The film begins with a girl child, who befriends a kid, brother of a young man with whom she gets married to, during 1881, at the Bengal Presidency of India. She shall be taken to a village which is haunted by a bloodthirsty witch, where she waits for a princess to succumb. After 20 years, the children are grown up, wives are widowed, but still, women are abused. With the arrival of the grown-up kid, now a man, mysterious murders take place all around the village, and everyone believes it the work of the witch. Let me not kill the fun of your watch.

Now that I look at all the ghost stories that were told in the villages, it seems like defense for women. The fear instilled in men that the ghost is a woman and harming a woman might trigger the ghost and shall kill him, refrains him from abuse. What a great pity, how a man was controlled & taught to behave from a fear of getting killed by a lady ghost. How low where we before and how much did we sink further today.
