Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has praised producer Sohum Shah's dark fantasy Tumbbad and called it an "extremely well-crafted film".

Directed by Rahi Anil Barve and Adesh Prasad, Tumbbad tells the tale of 19th-century colonial India, where a scheming man named Vinayak becomes obsessed with finding the mythical treasure of his ancestors.
