In Hindi and Sanskrit language ‘SAMANANTAR’ means the parallel, and that’s what this film is all about, how does the unknown force of the parallel realm start manifesting once humans breach all the limits through their evil actions. A philosophical-cum-horror ‘anthology’ of four hard-hitting stories entangled together with common philosophies of life and ‘Karma’.
