Why was Sairat such a massive hit? Probably because at the core of the status dynamics, politics and honour killing was a simple love story. Romance and light-hearted dramas could easily be ranked as the most popular genres across world cinema. But there are many cinema-goers who thoroughly enjoy horror movies like Bhoot, Kaun, Conjuring, etc. The Marathi film industry has also offered some good Marathi horror/thriller stories that have been much appreciated by critics and audiences.
