The trailer of Bhumi Pednekar’s most awaited film Durgamati The Myth released today which is the remake of the 2018 Telugu horror-thriller Bhaagamathie. Bhumi essays the role of an IPS officer who’s wronged in a prison. The plot revolves around Bhumi’s character Chanchal Chauhan aka Durgamati who’s made a part of a conspiracy against the bigshots of the country.

Chanchal gets interrogated in an old house which appears to be haunted where Chanchal transforms into Durgamati unveiling all the secret stories further which sets up the main element of the story. The trailer is 3 minutes long and also features Arshad Warsi as a politician who’s worshipped as a god by the people. The trailer is on top considering the intensity of a supernatural story.

Bhumi has earlier impressed everyone with her strong performances in Sonchiriya and Bala, in a similar way Durgamati seems to be one of those. The trailer cuts instances from stories spanning different periods which has made it look more exciting. But it remains to be seen how long it stands compared to its original version.

The film is produced by Akshay Kumar’s Cape Of Good Films and Bhushan Kumar. Apart from Bhumi and Arshad, Durgamati also stars Mahie Gill, Karan Kapadia, and Jisshu Sengupta in pivotal roles. The film releases on Amazon Prime Video on December 11.
