At its first glance, a Bulbbul review must speak highly of the Netflix film. However, there is more to it than meets the eye, even though not so much when it comes to the film. Backed by Anushka Sharma and her brother, it features Tripti Dimri, Avinash Tiwary and Rahul Bose in the lead roles.
After Gulabo Sitabo, Bulbbul is the second movie to have witnessed an online released and well, there is at least something to go gaga over it. For starters, the movie narrates the story of Bulbbul (Tripti), is married to Indranil (Rahul), but she happens to have a liking towards Satya (Avinash) given their similar ages. In a rather typical turn of events, she relegates Binodini (Paoli) to Choti bahu and well, that sure creates room for a strong dislike from her.
However, Binodini is married to the mentally challenged twin brother, Mahendra, and that plays spoilsport for her. In a rather predictable turn of events, things take a turn when Binodini’s husband is killed and 20 years later, we see Mahendra gone while Satya returns from London.
Well, that’s the gist of how it all starts and if I reveal anymore, this Bulbbul review will turn into a spoiler alert. Now, moving on to how does the film fare. For starters, the movie does catch your eye with the cinematography and it is a star point for sure. However, the predictability factor does make the writing weak, but due credits to Anvita Dutta.

Moving on to the performances, we cannot praise Tripti enough for her portrayal of Bulbbul. While we have seen her just one more time earlier, she is a promising actor. It is only a matter of time that you fall in love with her character, and everything she stands for. However, it is the way things amount to in the end, that leads to a weak point for the movie.
None the less, this Bulbbul review will remain incomplete if I don’t praise Rahul Bose for his screen presence. The actor is an absolute treat to watch and never disappoints. On the other hand, we also have Avinash, who does a great job of keeping things edgy. So to say, everyone has given the finest of performances.
A topic that the movie tries to portray is about the feminist approach and the age-old believes of a chudail. However, in an attempt to try to do some unveiling and deep digging, the movie reinstates certain ideas. While I can’t be more clear, these are ideas that it should stand up against. None the less, that does not take away from the film, the finesse that it offers.
All in all, if I were to put the entire Bulbbul review into a few words, I’d say it isn’t the best, but most definitely better, and for so many reasons. Hence, this could and should be the perfect watch for it is more than just another thriller!
