Anubhav Sinha brings in a perspective that makes us pause for a moment & think how fast we have moved from the ground reality and why it is important to pause for a moment again and be grateful to the lives we are living in. We still haven’t overcome pandemic yet people have shut their eyes to everything and are basking glory on their big little achievements. Bheed forces you to look beyond yourself putting you into a discomfort making it an incredible cinema.

Bheed shouldn’t be seen as a film for entertainment, it should be seen to raise the bar of consciousness, to raise the bar of being humble, observant, helpful, empathetic, to raise the bar of being an Indian surpassing caste, religion that only divides us further. Anubhav Sinha continues to make the cinema that matters.


Rajkumar Rao as Surya  and Bhumi Pednekar as Vidhi, are the thoughtful names of the characters they are christened to in the film. Surya he is the light at the end of the tunnel with the opportunity to showcase his power as police inspector in-charge weighs low under his own pressure, Vidhi the Goddess of Destiny is exactly where Corona left us, to our destinies some planned and some unplanned. Bhumi Pednekar as Vidhi yet again gives a performance to remember. Pankaj Kapoor never disappoints he brings in the soul to his character Trivedi with his sheer performance showcasing the pain, helplessness and courage.

His dialogue ‘Ghar se nikal kar gaye the, ghar se hi aa rahe hain aur ghar hi jaa rahe hain’ stays with you for long and not just this the film has lot many lines that moves your soul forcing you to think raising your consciousness on how one shall see life beyond their comforts. The banter between the photographer and tv journalist will put many intellectuals to shame, Kritika Kamra as a journalist reckons. If you have seen the film, you would know from where the review tag line is coming from.

Ashutosh Rana, Aditya Srivastav and Dia Mirza are good in their limited roles.

The background score by Mangesh Dhaka’s Anurag Saikia’s rendition of the song Herail Ba succeeds to generate compassion and empathy. Showcasing the film with no colours and keeping it Black & White, the makers are trying to convey that not much has changed from the mass migration of 1947 to the mass migration of 2020. Makers succeed to demonstrate their statement with their writing, giving dialogues like ‘Hamara nyaay hamari aukaat se bohot bahar hai’. The justice is govern by the rich. While the poor is left on the roads in the hopes that government is doing something, and matter of fact is conveyed in the film, that the borders are closed by the government with hardly any contingency plans.

Thanks to the actor Sonu Sood for understanding the situation and taking the ownership of leading a path, ensuring people not only reach home but find their livelihood too. Film has nothing to do with him, yet looking at the plea of migrants one name who did magic was Sonu Sood and that’s the light at the end of the tunnel.

Bollywood too has True Super Heroes.

Go Witness the discomfort in the comforts of celluloid. Watch Bheed in the cinemas near you. Can’t say have fun as the subject itself is the Dark Spot in the human history. Go to raise the bar of consciousness and see how Anubhav Sinha succeeds to bring some light at the end of the cinematic tunnel.
