Tisca Chopra's short film Chutney gave you the creeps last year. Adjudged as one of the best short films of the year, Chutney had Tisca playing a housewife with a dark past and how she wards off a woman interested in her husband by narrating a dark episode that took place in her house.
Chopra is back in Chhuri, as a screenplay writer and as one of the leads. Co-starring filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and Surveen Chawla, the film has Chopra playing a wife whose husband is cheating on her with a younger woman. Fed up with all the lying, she one day walks into her husband's mistress' house to discuss an arrangement which is convenient to all three of them.
While Chutney was dark, Chhuri is a very clever, witty take on fidelity and marriage. The 12-minute long video manages to make you smile and keep you hooked. The film has been directed by Mansi Jain who has co-written it with Chopra.
