Recently, we saw as Squid Game smashed through all of Netflix’s records to reach the top-viewed spot in many countries. More recently, however, another show, much grislier, called House Of Secrets: The Burari Deaths has been taking South Asia by storm.

In the summer of 2018, the mass murder-suicide of an entire Delhi based family left people shaken then confused. The patchy nature of information and the lack of a final conclusion led to the making of House of Secrets: The Burari Deaths.

On October 8, a three-part documentary series came out on Netflix, that breaks down the events leading up to the ultimate fate of the 11 members of the Bhatia family. Most members of the family were found hanging and gagged, some tied at the hands and the feet. The sole exception was the eldest woman of the house, who appeared to the strangled. The sole survivor in that house that night was the family dog, who was found tied on the terrace.

Directed by Leena Yadav, this tale of a seemingly, normal, well-functioning family and their gruesome demise in the by lanes of Delhi has received a mixed bag of reviews.

Some are just horrified after watching the bone-chilling series.

Others commend the work the creators have done; the way they have brought attention to both the deaths and the mental health issues that seem to prelude them.


However, some do not think the show lives up to the inflated expectations.

Have you seen House Of Secrets: The Burari Deaths, yet? What did you think?
