She was killed and buried by angry villagers for sacrificing young nubile girls to satisfy her greed for immortality, but her fear lived on. Years later villagers spoke of Kaalo’s sightings yet again. They claimed she was even more angry and dangerous.. And she was back to finish what she left incomplete. Kulbhata was vacated overnight by scared villagers. The film releases today.
