KRIYA

Sidharth Srinivasan’s KRIYA is one of the hottest and most anticipated premieres of Fantasia 2020. Check out the first thrilling poster and trailer down below!

KRIYA

From writer/director Sidharth Srinivasan of Reel Illusion Films (Soul of Sand), and producers Tejash Shah of Accord Equips Pvt. Ltd. (Headhunter) and B. S. Narayanaswamy (Court). Co-Produced by Andy Starke (In Fabric) and Pete Tombs (Free Fire), with an unforgettable score by Jim Williams (Possessor, Raw).

Synopsis and Details for KRIYA 

DJ Neel encounters the ravishing Sitara while working a club set one night and is transfixed by her. They return to Sitara’s place where Neel is horrified to see the gagged and shackled body of her dying father – Sitara’s grieving family keeping vigil around it. Caught completely unawares, Neel’s compassion is nevertheless aroused and he stays on. In India, patriarchal custom dictates that only a son can perform a parent’s last rites, but no such person exists in Sitara’s family. So when her father actually dies during the course of the night, Sitara coerces Neel to officiate the rituals of death. Thrust into a world of magic and transgression, Neel finally attempts to flee his waking nightmare. But as dawn breaks, it becomes evident that Sitara’s family is afflicted by an ancient curse. One that Neel is now very much a part of.

KRIYA comes at the viewer with seductive allure and a uniquely venomous bite. It’s an aesthetically beautiful film, mystically atmospheric and imbued with a creeping unease that casts an uncommon spell. It’s also startlingly transgressive. While the film is vibrant with stark imagery and an amusingly dark sense of humour, it is very much a work of confrontational art. One that subverts Hindu ritual traditions and shrieks against its debasement of women in clever and compelling ways.

KRIYA

This film looks dark, magical, and deliciously seductive. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into it. It is sure to be a killer hit at Fantasia 2020 among many of the other amazing titles.
