Bulbbul Movie review

Covered with an ominous and dark genre the film tells a tale of feminism. The feminist narrative of the film condemns patriarchy and other social ills. It stands out as the story perspective from the Bulbbul’s eyes stays distinct. The movie surrounds the quest of a wide-eyed child bride. Her search for a kindred soul and kindness pulls her deep into peril.  

There can be seen many influences taken in the film by the writer. From Rabindranath Tagore’s classic Chokher Bali to Abrar Alvi’s iconic Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam, and much more that it’s hard to keep a track of. Regardless, the uncanny influences, the movie has a tale to tell of its own. 

Bulbbul Movie review

The film manages to grip the audience through its mix of classic pre-Renaissance Bengal and desi horror gothic. Bulbbul is fashioned as a sharply relevant fable. It is powerfully feminist, a revisionist tale of a woman wronged, and it is told with economy, precision, and feeling. 

BollywoodHush rates Bulbbul 4 stars from 5. Tell us in the comments your Bulbbul movie review. Stay tuned to BollywoodHush to get more reviews on the latest Bollywood films.
