1. Barot House is based on true events
Barot House is a ZEE5 Original film slated to release on the OTT platform on 7 August 2019. The movie, starring Amit Sadh and Manjari Fadnnis in the lead, has been directed by Bhargava ‘Bugs’ Krishna. Going by the trailer, the flick is scary, scarring and stimulating in equal parts. In case you haven’t made up your mind yet, here are seven reasons why you shouldn’t miss this mystery thriller revolving around the Barots.
To begin with, Barot House is based on true events. Yes, the story has drawn inspiration from real-life incidents. This ain’t a fictional drama involving a couple and their kids but reflects reality. Let’s see if you can guess which famous case the movie is based on!
2. Amit Sadh
Amit Sadh. ‘Nuff said. The powerhouse performer has big Bollywood blockbusters like Kai Po Che, Sultan, Gold and the recently released Super 30 to his credit, having essayed important roles in each of these and many more. After a successful stint in Breathe, Amit returns to recreate the magic in yet another suspense drama Barot House.
3. Manjari Fadnnis
Manjari Fadnnis may have selected filmography and appearances in her kitty, but they are all spectacular-only stints. Be it theatre, films, television, web, music videos – she has left a lasting impression in these mediums, across more than half a dozen languages. Her impressive repertoire is enough for you to bet on her performance, but for those wondering, Manjari stars in Barot House as a mother of four.

He is an advertising creative director, writer, ad filmmaker, and theatre personality. As Manjari told us in an exclusive interview (click here to read), having an actor as a director is an added bonus!

7. Explores family relationships
Besides all the horrifying elements, Barot House beautifully captures family bonding and relationships. In the promo video, we see the young boy loves his father as his mommy calls him a ‘Papa ka chamcha.’ Thus, one can expect to get a hint of the father-son bond while also exploring that of a mother with her daughters. However, happiness is short-lived in Barot House!
