The trailer of Black Widows displays a thriller with many twists and turns.
Directed by Birsa Dasgupta, the web series will also feature Sharad Kelkar, Raima Sen, Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Aamir Ali and Sabyasachi Chakraborty.
The trailer shows the story of three women with the worst kinds of husbands.
One’s husband threatens to kill their daughter while another’s beating her behind closed doors.
The third treats his wife like a commodity, sharing her with his friends.
The women, tired of living a life of abuse and fear, decide to take matters into their own hands and murder their husbands.
With the abusers out of their lives, new doors open up.
They start meeting new men, living a life of freedom but the fun ends soon when an investigation is launched into the death of their husbands.
But things don’t end here.
While they enjoy their life without their abusive husbands, a cop investigating the case makes it difficult for them to live a life of freedom.
Mona Singh who plays the lead in Black Widows said:
“I am extremely passionate about Black Widows, it has romance, fun, quirkiness and lots of thrill.
“ZEE5 has created this adaptation that puts three women in the centre stage, something that is rarely seen in an OTT space.
“Adding to this, the show has a thriller aspect to it when one of the husbands returns from the dead which will challenge the narrative.”
Shamita took to Instagram to share the trailer of her show posting:
“BLACK WIDOWS TRAILER Every king meets his fate, with a Queen’s checkmate! Trailer out now !! #blackwidows premieres 18th December! #womenontop.”
Black Widows is among a few web series with women as lead actors. Going by the trailer, it is going to be an interesting watch.
