What happens when a universal concept is treated in a Hollywood manner by Indian filmmakers? A film like SACRED EVIL - A TRUE STORY is born!
Since decades the world of supernatural has intrigued the common man. Does it exist? Or is it a myth? Is there a force out there that is different from GOD? Can a human being's life be ruled by something that is unseen...unheard...unaccepted?
Based on a book by writer Ipsita Roy Chakraverti, who herself is a Wiccan, 'Sacred Evil' is a supernatural thriller that has been instantly noticed due to its Hollywood horror/thriller/drama look and feel. And credit for that must go to the director duo of Abiyaan Rajhan and Abhigyan Jha who have tried to create mystery of a different kind on the screen. The film boasts of Indian and International starcast comprising of Lynsey Pow, Frederic Andrau, Sarika and Soumitra Chatterjee.
Based on a true story, Sacred Evil revolves around the characters of 3 women:
Martha - A nun
Claudia - A girl
Ispita - A Wiccan
And then there is a secret that has been kept for 20 long years! What is that?
What happens when Mother Superior invites Ispita [Sarika] to heal the soul of Martha? An expert, Ispita doesn't know that it would be a complex journey from hereon. Blessed with great powers, she begins the process only to realize later that it would be a mysterious journey for her from hereon as facts about Martha start becoming clearer. As she starts hearing more Martha's story, she gets to know about the one who haunts her!
In parallel runs a story about a young Anglo-Indian girl Claudia who is in search for her mother Maureen. Her childhood has been disturbed since she has been unaware about her mother all this while. 20 long years have passed by and Claudia's frustration continues to build up.
Is there any connection between Martha's disturbed soul and Claudia's past?
Soon it's time for the lives of Martha and Claudia to cross each other's path and along with the two of them Ispita takes it upon her to unravel the mystery by attempting to bring past and the present.
But would she be successful? Or destiny/supernatural powers/GOD have a hand in everything that she observes?
Because soon she arrives at a junction where things get so tangled that there seem to be no hopes in sight for Claudia, Martha or herself. While Claudia's burden becomes Martha's troubles, Ipsita herself feels that her attempts have failed. Not to loose hopes, she continues to work hard on her efforts and is soon rewarded when she comes across a fact that she had never fathomed!
What is the truth?
How does this impact the lives of Claudia, Martha and Ispita?
How does it bring SACRED and EVIL face to face with each other? What is stronger out of the two?
A film that is one of its own kinds, 'Sacred Evil - A True Story', which releases on May 19, is being presented by Sahara One.
