When it comes to Bollywood, genres like rom-coms, sports dramas, action films, biopics, masala entertainers, and sci-fi usually come to mind. However, folklore can be a fascinating genre that not only captivates filmmakers but also audiences. It takes you to a new, authentic world while finding relevance in the heartland of the country.

Films like Stree and Bhediya have been well-received by audiences. Now, Munjya, part of the Supernatural Universe like its predecessors, has hit screens today. The trailer has generated immense excitement, but does the film live up to expectations? Let’s find out…

The story starts in 1952 in Konkan’s Chetukwadi (Maharashtra), where a young boy named Gotya, between 7 to 10 years old, is punished by his mother for being in love with a girl named Munni, who is 7 years older. Gotya even attempts to harm Munni’s husband during their wedding but fails. This sets in motion a series of supernatural events that haunt the village for years to come.

Years later, Gotya’s younger sister, now an elderly woman, lives in Pune with her daughter-in-law and grandson, Bittu. Bittu, a simple guy, is in love with his childhood friend Bela. When family circumstances lead them back to Chetukwadi, they encounter the ancient curse that has plagued the village.

As the mystery of Munjya unfolds, Bittu must confront the supernatural forces that threaten his loved ones. Director Aditya Sarpotdar weaves a tale of folklore and legend, transporting viewers to the mystical world of Konkan.

With impressive technical aspects, including VFX and camera work, and strong performances from the cast, Munjya delivers a unique and authentic theatrical experience. The VFX character of Munjya stands out as a highlight of the film.

Munjya is a must-watch for its engaging storytelling and captivating visuals.
