ZEE5 Original High Priestess marks the digital debut of Tollywood superstar Amala Akkineni. The series explores a number of concepts and elements related to the supernatural, spirits and the other-worldly. However, the issues in High Priestess are relatable since the series is set in contemporary times.

The series doesn’t wait for a build-up sequence to establish what it really is about. High Priestess gets into the vibe from the first frame itself. It starts off simple but strong. The first episode sets the ball rolling in full force. Just when you try to understand if someone is swimming in the pool, she is pulled down.

2. Navigating Through The Dark

Every time we see darkness on the screen followed by one person trying to navigate through the dark, our hearts start racing faster because it seems to be obvious. In High Priestess, however, the case isn’t that simple. Yes, Amala’s character Swathi Reddy wakes up in the middle of the night and tries to find her way through the darkness. Although scary, this scene is visually great and keeps your hopes high.

3. Random Person In The Room
