Woh (English: It) is a Hindi language Indian television horror-thriller series which aired on Zee TV in 1998. The series starred Indian film director Ashutosh Gowarikar as the main protaginist.[1] The series is a loose adaptation of Stephen King's 1986 novel It, the second adaptation of the book following the 1990 ABC miniseries of the same name albeit with many changes made to the original story including having it all take place in modern-day India as opposed to both the 1950s and modern-day America, It being a vengeful ghost instead of an ancient cosmic evil that awakens every 27 years, and scrapping the concept of the Macroverse altogether.[2]

Premise[edit]

Seven teenagers Ashutosh, Raja, Julie, Shiva, Ronnie, Sanjeev and Rahul battle an evil force called Woh that kidnaps children, and rid the town of Panchgani of his menace. They promise that they'll return, if Woh ever returns. Fifteen years after they had part ways, Ashutosh starts seeing balloons, at the places where children are being kidnapped. He immediately recognizes that Woh has returned and calls his friends to return.

All the friends return except Sanjeev who gets killed by Woh. The day they realize it the police take the friends into custody and they narrate how they battled Woh with the help of Samidha 15 years ago. Police believe them and release them. They go and meet Samidha and she joins their group. They finish She with difficulty. The same day Ashutosh comes to know his wife is pregnant. Raja proposes to Samidha. All the friends return to their normal lives. Bad omens happen during the birth of Ashutosh's child Siddharth, his doctor and years later Ashutosh's wife's aunt is mysteriously killed. Ashutosh's friends arrive for Siddharth's 7th birthday, they realize Woh has returned in form of Siddharth. They go to the same caves and find out from the mother of Woh that he is her son who faced trouble from the society due to his short height. He committed suicide and became a vengeful ghost. The friends convince him to leave Siddharth's body and help him attain salvation. Siddharth is saved and the story ends on a good note.
