Hoichoi launches ‘Paranoia’ – a spine-chilling thriller series

Kolkata, Oct 6 (UNI) Paranoia, a compilation of short-format thrillers, is now live on Hoichoi,

Paranoia series.
Lift is about a renowned journalist called Nandita, who has recently moved to her new
apartment on the 25th floor of a city high-rise. Newly built and almost unoccupied, Nandita
feels uneasy about staying there. Wracked by paranoia, Nandita feels unsafe, with the liftman
Kartik staring at her, his gaze unblinking, every time she uses the Lift.
Her dislike of him intensifies when the elevator gets stuck one night between two floors and
the light goes out with Nandita and Kartik inside.
The second story Shoshibhushon revolves around a disciplined man Shoshi Babu. His life
falls apart one day when everything goes out of control for him and things do not work according
to his plan. Renowned director Kamaleshwar Mukherjee has donned the hat of an actor here
playing the protagonist.
