Kannada film director Girideva Raaj’s psychological horror thriller, ‘The Y’, will hit the screens on January 6. It happens to be the third most anticipated Hindi film of 2023, as per IMDb. With Leonilla and Yuvan Hariharan as the lead actors, Kamal Ghimiray plays a key role in the Hindi movie.
The director has previously worked in the Kannada film industry and made a name for himself with the 2016 film, Zero Made in India. The film was a family drama that went down well with the audience.
The trailer of The Y shows a young woman who begins to experience paranormal activity after the arrival of a mysterious gift. The film focuses on the nightmarish events that unfold after the arrival of this gift. Her husband takes it upon himself to solve this riddle.
Girideva Raaj has explained why he decided to name his film, The Y. He says it does not refer to the alphabet Y, nor does it denote a question. It is merely a symbol in the movie, one that invokes fear in the protagonist. The trailer keeps us riveted and the film will no doubt be different from the usual rom-coms or action films that are popular today.
The film marks the debut of Leonilla Shwetha D’Souza who plays the lead role of Deeksha Dee. Yuvan Hariharan is cast opposite her as her husband. Kamal Ghimiray, who has worked with director Girideva in Zero Made in India also plays an important role in the film.
