Are you a fan of horror films? Then get set for a chilly and thrilling ride with Dollywood Play and OTTplay Premium's new release of the week: Darr Bhaag Jaayega. 

The Hindi film is the dubbed version of the 2017 Mexican dark fantasy film that was directed by Issa López. Starring Paola Lara, Juan Ramón López, and Nery Arredondo in important roles, the film is a powerful social commentary that delves into the harsh realities that are faced by children in Mexico.

What is Darr Bhaag Jaayega about?
The film is about a 10-year-old girl named Estrella who has three wishes and how they come true in a spooky manner. For instance, when Estrella asks for her missing mother to come back, her mother returns, but she is dead and follows Estrella everywhere she goes. An understandably terrified Estrella tries to escape from her mother's ghost. But what will happen when she joins a gang of children who are orphaned by the violence?

Reasons to watch Darr Bhaag Jaayega
Everyone is aware of the thriving organised crime in Mexico. All the crime and drug cartel violence negatively impact many children in the country. Darr Bhaag Jaayega cleverly throws light on the plight of the children who are unable to escape violence through a tale of horror, which is a reflection of the real-life horror faced by the children.

Through the children, the film also highlights the themes of loss, survival, and resilience. This is done in the face of adversity, which makes it a moving tale that will evoke empathy from viewers. 

The manner in which a serious and disturbing subject is dealt with sensitively and the unique portrayal of loss and desolation through the horror genre make this film stand out and a must-watch.
