The Wife, a ZEE5 Original horror flick, starring Gurmeet Chaudhary and Sayani Datta, has been getting praises from critics and netizens, for its performances, direction, and music.

The Wife, a horror film starring Gurmeet Chaudhary and Sayani Datta in the lead roles, premiered on ZEE5 on 19 March. It has been garnering good reviews from the audiences and the critics. Everyone has highly praised Gurmeet Chaudhary and Sayani Datta’s performances. Some of the critics have also hailed the film’s sound design and the overall direction. Take a look at some of the reviews of The Wife.

The review on the Republic website rates the film 4/5. Praising the performances of the lead actors, the review mentions, “Gurmeet Choudhary has done an exceptional job at portraying someone who does not believe in the paranormal – he makes you want to support his character because he makes Varun relatable. Sayani Datta does a good job of supporting him as his wife Arya and continues to make the unfolding drama realistic.”

The Binged website praised the direction and the background score of The Wife. Their review reads, “The Wife is a well-made horror film — subtle and sombre in execution, unlike the shrill and screechy rendering that is the bane of the Indian horror genre. Though Samrad Khan unleashes jump scares on the viewer, even those are done with fine restraint. Sound Designer Shantanu Yennemadi must be commended for the subtle and refined sound work of The Wife. Shailesh S Suvarna and Hyacinth DSouza background score is pleasing, at the same time delicately haunting – quite unlike the cacophonous background music of Indian horror films.”

The Let’s OTT website also praised the sound design and the performances of Gurmeet Chaudhary and Sayani Datta in The Wife. The review says, “Gurmeet Choudhary has a knack of playing characters who always have a thing or two to hide, and the actor is dependable as Varun, using his eyes to convey Varun’s shiftiness very well. Shantanu Yennemadi’s sound design will send shivers down your spine.”

The Times Of India website also praised the lead actors’ performances in their The Wife review. Their review mentions, “Gurmeet looks promising as Varun and debutante Sayani Datta is convincing, too. The chemistry between the pair is so natural that they look comfortable in every frame. From expressions to their dialogue delivery, especially when they encounter supernatural activities, perfectly conveys the emotions of their characters.”
