Malayalam actress Aishwarya Lekshmi’s horror film Kumari is all set to get its OTT release, less than a month after hitting theatres. The movie, which is directed by Ranam filmmaker Nirmal Sahadev, released in theatres on October 28 and had Shine Tom Chacko essaying its male lead.

The film, which is also co-produced by the film’s director as well as Aishwarya, is set in the 70s and 80s though its story spans 12 generations. Kumari is set against the backdrop of a village, which is also the site where demons are banished. A family that has been cursed for killing a child has been under the protection of one of the supernatural forces and has to make a sacrifice before the defence weakens. Aishwarya's character Kumari is married to a member of the family and how she plays a pivotal role in the clash of the two demonic forces form the plot of the film, which also has Tanvi Ram, Swasika, Rahul Madhav, Surabhi Lakshmi and Shivajith Nambiar as part of the cast.


While Kumari is produced by Fresh Lime Sodas, Prithviraj Productions had presented the movie in theatres. Prithviraj had also said that he was the one who had suggested Nirmal to go ahead and make the movie because it’s been a while since Malayalam has had a film in the genre and dealt with folktales and superstitions.

Kumari’s OTT rights have been bagged by Netflix and is set to begin streaming on the platform from November 18.

In a recent interview with OTTplay, Aishwarya said, “I think Kumari was one of the easiest films I have done as an actor. I didn’t do it for the scope of acting; I did it for the experience that the movie would provide for the audience, from my imagination. And I am proud to say that whenever I see the various versions of the film, it’s become so much bigger than I imagined.”
