There were several movies in India in the earlier days that will usually project the bad character who will claim that he cannot be killed physically because his life (soul) is inside a parrot that is hidden in a remote island.

This idea is derived from the belief that
an effect on one object can cause an analogous effect on another object, without an apparent causal link between the two objects. This is also a form Sympathetic Magic.
