But, the tree is the house of a ghost, named Shashi, who has been residing in it since 100 years. As Kanan married the tree, Shashi claims Kanan as her husband. Shashi couldn’t travel to the other world as she is engaged in this world, now. What happens next? Will Shashi leave Kanan or stay along with him? Watch the film in theaters!

Star Performance

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration when we say that Anushka has lived as the character. She has done it quite naturally and impressed each and everyone, who watches the film.


Anshai Lal, the director has picked a good script from Anvita Dutt. This is a new genre in the Indian cinema and thanks to the director and scriptwriter. However, the film has its own goodies and flaws too.

What’s There?

  • Anushka’s natural performance is the biggest plus in the film
  • The present and the past are shown simultaneously; thanks to the editor
  • Although Diljit doesn’t have a lengthy role, he has done justice to it

What’s Not There?

  • Diljit and Anushka’s part would have been made better
  • The run time of the film is irritating
  • Mehreen Pirzada has no significant role


Phillauri could be watched this weekend if you want to watch a film with different genre and to enjoy Anushka’s natural performance. It is a one-time watch movie!
