When six girls go missing and their alleged killer (Manoj Bajpayee) arrested, his wife (Jacqueline Fernandez) is distraught. “Joy innocent hai. Main jaanti hoon kasoorvar kaun hai,” she says. To save him, she comes up with an ingenious plan – commit a copycat murder while he’s locked up so the police think they’ve got the wrong guy.
But is her decision as calculated and clinical as it appears to be initially? Shots of her intended victim in a garishly lit room full of saline drips and surgical instruments with her looming ominously above the girl suggest that she might be losing her sanity. “Torture abhi tu ne dekha hi kahaan? Woh toh tu ab dekhegi,” she tells her.
Directed by Shirish Kunder, Mrs. Serial Killer releases on Netflix on May 1.
