Durgamati is a horror-drama starring Bhumi Pednekar, Arshad Warsi, Mahie Gill, Karan Kapadia and supporting cast. Directed by Ashok G, Durgamati is 155 minutes long.

Giving a village feel, we see Ishwar Prasad (Arshad Warsi), Minister of Water Resources addressing the media over the issue of stolen antiques from the ancient temples. He pledges to quit politics if the government fails to track down the people behind this.

CBI Joint Director Satakshi Ganguly (Mahie Gill) is called in from the ruling part’s side to find ensure Ishwar goes down. Then enters Ishwar’s former personal secretary IAS Chanchal Chauhan (Bhumi Pednekar), who’s spending her time in prison for shooting her husband dead. Satakshi decides to take her to an abandoned ‘haveli’ to question her.

Durgamati – Bhumi Pednekar plays the spirit of the dead queen of that ‘haveli’ & just like any other horror flick, the spirit seems to be planning for some kind of revenge. The issues with the story of this film is that it exists fails to pull through and lasts 30 minutes. Totalling to 2 hours & 35 minutes, Ashok’s script drags and could not achieve even half of its time. The drastically stretched narrative has movie possesses. There’s a dialogue in the beginning which goes as, “we’re starting this on a wrong note”, little did they know that they’re starting the entire film on a disastrous note. Although the biggest takeaway is the dialogue which is: Guy A gets sh*t-scared from the ghost, Guy B says, “Tere angoor kyun kaanp rahe hai?” (Literal translation: Why your grapes are grooving?). Comedy of the film is filled with ‘WTF?’ moments. Arshad Warsi has been given an ordinary character. Mahie Gill overdid Bengali accent.

Ashok’s direction is average, it missed the mark. Ashok had Jakes Bejoy give the background score in this one. The BGM is controlled and surprisingly doesn’t exceed loud limits despite the over-the-top drama. Thankfully apart from a couple, there are no new songs to the already extended duration. Durgamati is a horror-drama. The story is missing!

Durgamati: The Myth released on 11 December , 2020.
