Netflix Bulbbul Review:
A dark, blood-soaked, free-floating feminist fable. It is a powerfully feminist, revisionist tale of a woman wronged. The movie is easily foreseeable from the very beginning although it will get you hooked within the initial few minutes. Tripti Dimri is brilliant, her act is the one to look out for. Paoli Dam is Wonderful as Binodini. Avinash Tiwari is Another Revelation in this Film..Rahul Bose is also great. Parambrata Chattopadhyay is Phenomenal. Anvita Dutt’s writing and Direction are spots on. The background music and visual details are very haunting. Bulbbul isn’t the sort of spine-chilling film that will spook you out of your mind but it is engaging enough not to ever let you off the hook.
The movie is easily foreseeable from the very beginning although it will get you hooked within the initial few minutes. Personally I felt like wanting more out of it during the end. Cheers for the lead actress who retained the enigmatic presence with her amusing act. But they have ruined a decent plot with unnecessary and excessive dragging. Horrors are being reshaped brilliantly by Anushka. Instead of jump scares, this movie rather makes you feel the vengeance of the soul. The gore is placed in the right places and Rahul Bose is at his best. Casting with real Bengali actors was the best decision ever.
In a nutshell, Anushka knows where to invest it. Brilliantly portrayed the almost predictable story. Tripti will be a blessing to your eyes. Her acting in two different phases shows how talented she is. I hope she gets more roles in mainstream cinema. It’s sad when in spite of Tripti’s commendable performance in Laila Majnu, Ananya Pandey was awarded Filmfare Debutant.
The only question that will come in mind is, What is the real horror — a witch who swings from trees and has misshapen feet or the unimaginable torture that so many women and girls go through at the hands of men?
