Maya is one of those horror movies that will scare you even if you watch it on mute. The story grips you and the thrills aren't ruined by over-the-top set pieces. The premise is set about a forest that housed a mental asylum. People admitted into the institution would serve as guinea pigs for drug testing. One day, it got shut down. Nobody knows why. These are the sort of vague, open-ended plot lines that kickstart the movie into a supernatural ride.
Maya was one of the patients admitted into the asylum, who one day decided to plummet off the roof of the building. She has been looking for her daughter ever since. She also wore a ring that would cost many fortunes. With this as incentive, explorers and grave robbers alike, try braving the forest in search of the ring. None return.
Where does Nayantara figure into this equation? It's not an obvious guess.
