Anushka Sharma’s Netflix release ‘Bulbbul’ draws inspiration from ‘Kadambari’, the main characters of the story, which has been given the appearance of a supernatural thriller, and its similarity to ‘Kadambari’. It also ends. Incidentally, the main characters in ‘Kadambari’ were played by Parambrata Chatterjee and Konkona Sen Sharma. Parambrata also appears in an important role in ‘Bulbbul’. Bulbbul is a film with a strong message, with absolutely no dose of thrills as felt by watching its trailer.
Bulbbul Review: Story
Bulbbul Review: In the backdrop of the story of ‘Bulbbul’ is the Bengali society of the late 19th century and all the evils of that era, which many great social reformers had started the movement to end it. For example, child marriage, malevolent thinking, and because of this, the woman’s compulsion to take atrocities on women and accept those atrocities as her own. ‘Bulbbul’ is the culmination of anger in a girl struggling with all these social evils.
‘Bulbbul’ has a child marriage to a landlord, Mahendra, many years older than him. Mahendra’s younger brother Satya is almost the same as Bulbbul. She grows up playing with her. The fickleness and attachment of childhood turn into an attraction in youth. Nightingale starts loving the mind.
Mahendra realizes this through Binodini, the wife of his twin retarded brother. Zamindari boils in blood and he sends Mahendra and Satya to London. Separating from the truth is no less than torture for Bulbbul. One night after Satya’s departure, Mahendra beat Bulbul in a state of intoxication and become half dead. His feet are badly injured. After this, Mahendra leaves home. One night, Mahendra’s retarded twin sexually molests a wounded Bulbbul. A doctor from the village treats Sudeep Bulbbul.
After Mahendra’s departure, Bulbbul starts taking care of the house as a daughter-in-law. Sathya returns from London. Bulbbul is happy, but something has changed inside him. There is now a layer of mystery in his words and smile. On the other hand, in the village, the men start being gruesomely murdered. There is a discussion in the village that there is a witch in the forest, who is killing men.
London Returns Satya finds all this nonsense and sets out on a campaign to find out the truth with the local police. Meanwhile, Satya is jealous of seeing Bulbbul mingling with Sudeep, then the zamindari arrogance awakens and he decides to send Bulbbul to her maternal home. During the investigation of Satya, such incidents happen that the story takes a turn again and many secrets are revealed. Witch’s reverse legs too.
Slow Paced Film
Bulbbul, a supernatural thriller, is a slow-paced film. There are few scenes in a large part of the film that produces horror or thunder. Twenty minutes to the end the story picks up the pace and some impressive scenes emerge. The film is weak at the level of writing. The screenplay initially seems dull. Yes, dialogues leave their mark in some places. Especially, the scene when Binodini reveals his grief through taunts on the Havelis and landlords, explaining the aftermath of the bullying on Bulbbul.
The film is directed by Anvita Dutt, who has also written the film. He has taken over the director’s responsibility for the first time in Bulbbul. Prior to this, he has written many successful songs. Trupti Dimri managed to highlight the layers of Bulbbul’s character.
Avinash Tiwari in the role of Satya, Rahul Bose in the role of Mahendra and twin brother impress. Paoli Dam in the role of Binodini and Parambrata Chatterjee in the role of Doctor Sudeep leaves an impact. Anushka Sharma’s Bulbbul depicts women’s empowerment staunchly but fails to produce thrills. One can also say that Bulbul has more scary male characters than a witch.
