Immediate reaction when the end credit rolls
An astounding surprise that first shocks and then makes you ponder for a while.

The Story of BAROT HOUSE
Said to be inspired by true events, BAROT HOUSE revolves around the loving Barot family whose happiness is short-lived after their daughter is found brutally murdered in the house, under mysterious circumstances.


Major Highlights
Actor Bugs Bhargava (teacher Sen Sir in Aamir Khan’s Taare Zameen Par) graduates as a helmer and takes a challenging subject. Revealing much will make me labeled as a spoiler but this is an unusual unnerving shocker that transcends beyond the known tried, tested and trusted elements of a thriller/horror.

Clicking a rare debate on nature of a human and its effects on nurture of his children, BAROT HOUSE displays strange power in its weak and flawed characters. Sanjeev K Jha’s story is a searing domestic horror that has no easy answers and the blame is not restricted to a certain character, everybody contributes to the eeriness.

The lead cast Amit Sadh is outstanding as a father who is fighting his own demons inside and struggling to find a solution to the shocking deaths of his daughters. Amit remarkably balances the aggression and the subtle compassion towards his family with ease. Manjari Fadnnis as the loyal dutiful mother and wife is brilliant.


The actress displays the shades of love, compassion, pain and madness in equal proportion. Aaryan Menghji is a revelation, displaying a rare vulnerable innocence; the young actor makes a solid impression. Deep Metkar’s camerawork, Rohit Chatterjee and Rohit Kulkarni’s work on the background music creates the desired impact.

A slow burner that takes its own sweet time. More detailing and insight of Malhar was required. The pre climax is hurried. Somewhere during the end, the writer and the director start believing that the audiences are also thinking in the way they are. People will question the need for such unsettling domestic horrors.

Final words
BAROT HOUSE is a rare, unsettling domestic horror, a confrontation between nature and nurture that takes pride in its astoundingly complex scenario that is powered by outstanding performances.
