Production Insights

Folklore and Inspiration

In an interview with Mid-Day, Bhatt discussed the four traditional stages of life in Hinduism: Brahmacharya (student life), Gṛhastha (householder life), Vanaprastha (retirement), and Sannyasa (renunciation). He elaborated on the Upanayan ceremony, called Munjya in Marathi, which signifies the start of the student phase, and the Sod Munja ceremony, marking the transition to householder life. If a man dies before marriage after his Munjya ceremony but before his Sod Munja, he becomes a Munjya spirit. These spirits are believed to haunt peepal trees or wells. The fear of encountering Munjya spirits, especially after dark, is heightened by the fact that peepal trees emit high levels of carbon dioxide at night. Munjya spirits are depicted as childlike yet monstrous, causing mischief such as throwing stones and fulfilling their unfulfilled desires, particularly related to marriage.

Development and Research

The tale of Munjya was brought to Maddock Films by Yogesh Chandekar. Bhatt and Kaushik dedicated three years to developing the storyline, conducting thorough research in the Dapoli and Ganpatipule regions, where legends of Munjya spirits are prevalent. The film marks a milestone as the first CGI film in the Maddock Supernatural Universe featuring an animated character. Directed by Aditya Sarpotdar, Munjya explores this captivating folklore. The teaser was released on 21 May 2024, followed by the trailer on 24 May 2024.
