in competition: Pihu
Category: Feature Films | Duration: 88 min | Language: Hindi with English ST
A nerve-jangling thriller of the very special kind: one day during the early hours the two-year-old Pihu tries to wake her mother, to which she doesn’t respond, so Pihu starts to explore the spacious apartment. It’s a total mess from the birthday party that took place the night before.
Driven by hunger, the little girl goes down the stairs searching for food. She searches the fridge, uses the microwave, plays around the stove and gets distracted by her father's phone calls, struggling to reach his wife whilst out of town.
The tension continues to rise as the audience must helplessly watch the sink overflowing, the flames of the stove, the risk of falling - and the mother won’t wake up.
This is a movie that will leave you gasping for air for sheer horror and leave you on the edge of your seat, all whilst being mesmerised by the phenomenal Pihu.
