THE INDRANI MUKERJEA STORY: BURIED TRUTH on Netflix is a documentary series in four parts about an ongoing case. Once again, wild media coverage and police “investigation” in India are at the center. Read our full The Indrani Mukerjea Story: Buried Truth docuseries review here!

THE INDRANI MUKERJEA STORY: BURIED TRUTH is a new Netflix documentary series from India. The four episodes of this docuseries were slated for release on February 23, 2024, but a last-minute effort to stop it meant the High Court had to view the documentary first. The trial hasn’t ended yet, so there was reason to want to stop its release.

Now the High Court watched it and decided nothing in this documentary should sway anyway. I tend to agree as pretty much everyone comes across as dubious, at best, and downright corrupt or sinister, if we take a darker approach. English is spoken throughout this documentary with very few exceptions, which I know will please many.

You could not make this up!

Officially, this docuseries investigates the disappearance of 25-year-old Sheena Bora. However, you’ll notice that it isn’t called “The Sheena Bora Story”, which should already tell you quite a lot. The documentary focuses on Indrani Mukerjea as one of the people suspected of having murdered Sheena Bora.

Of course, there is the very intriguing detail that before Sheena Bora disappeared, everyone believed Sheena was the sister of Indrani. Once Indrani Mukerjea was accused of having murdered Sheena, it was revealed that she was, in fact, the mother of Sheena.

While being accused of killing your sister is one thing, being a mother and killing your child is quite another. It’s pretty much stated that killing your sibling isn’t that uncommon, but a mother killing her child makes her a monster. I’m not saying I disagree, but the change in media coverage is swift and people do not hold back. At all.

When episode one of The Indrani Mukerjea Story: Buried Truth ends, we see Indrani Mukerjea sit down to be interviewed. A great way to ensure you’ll want to let Netflix continue on to episode 2 after that wild first episode.

Which is worse: The media or the police?

Even though Indrani Mukerjea was arrested for the murder of Sheena Bora, the police don’t have the strongest case. Also, it should be noted that ultimately, Indrani is one of four people arrested in this case.

The obvious problem with the case against Indrani Mukerjea was that Sheena Bora’s body had not been found. Nor was there any evidence of any kind. Instead, there is a driver (Indrani Mukerjea’s servant), who three years after Sheena Bora’s disappearance, suddenly wanted to tell the police everything.

Well, “suddenly” is a strong word for what happened. He was arrested with a gun on him (which has nothing to do with the supposed murder of Sheena) and after several hours of interrogation, he “revealed” everything.

Funny how this always happens in cases all over the world. Despite no physical evidence or reason to confess to something, people suddenly want to unburden their hearts when the police have “talked” to them for a few hours. And the media is quick to serve up everything the police states as facts.

Both are equally disgusting, but where the media might be the court of the public, the police deal with the law. Or at least they should be. It doesn’t seem to be the case.

The Indrani Mukerjea Story: Buried Truth isn’t a great docuseries, but it is a very entertaining one. As we’ve seen with documentaries from India before, they may be in the “true crime” subgenre but the focus is much more on the wild media coverage. The result is often a soap opera-esque documentary style.

Supposedly, The Indrani Mukerjea Story: Buried Truth reveals the shocking aftermath of the case. However, as I am not in India, I have not been subjected to this case before. For me, it’s all new, so I can’t tell you where the “old stuff” ends and this new “shocking aftermath” begins. It’s all shocking to me!

Especially the fact that most people are desperately unlikable. Yes, very much including Indrani Mukerjea who is so self-centered that she clearly believes she’s the only real victim in this case.

And don’t even get me started on her son, Mikhail Bora. As indicated by his last name, he is the brother of Sheena Bora, who is at the center of all of this. In the fourth and final episode of this docuseries, Mikhail Bora really doesn’t come across well. At all!

The Indrani Mukerjea Story: Buried Truth was finally released on Netflix on February 29, 2024. It was originally scheduled for Netflix release on February 23, 2024,


Featuring new revelations and unprecedented access, this docuseries digs into the disappearance of 25-year-old Sheena Bora and the shocking aftermath.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
