With the help of locals Jobin and Panda Ji (Deepak Dobriyal), Bhaskar tries to convince the locals to let them cut down the forest. But as they say, if you play with nature, it plays with you.That happens when Bhaskar is bitten by a wolf aka “Bhediya” aka Vishanoo. To quote Rahul Roy, Bhaskar also turns into a wolf on a full moon day and tries to destroy his project. how is he treated? Will he be able to fight the ‘Vediyah’ inside him and finish the project for which he is responsible?
Bediya Movie Review: Script Analysis
Before we get into the technicalities, a message to all fans who think 3 stars is a “bad” rating. 3 means it’s flawed, but the movie was watchable despite being the same. and is largely ignored on the grounds that it is not “good enough” according to the “standard”. 3 is still a fully watchable movie. End of rant.
Okay, hot take: Director Amar Kaushik has two great films before this Streets & Roses. Now, when they return to the genre they’ve nailed before, they’re expected to return with the same team. Amar says he’ll be back with Bala’s lighter (Niren Bhatt), but the manufacturer had to keep Raj-DK (Stree’s writer).
Niren Bhatt writes the story, script and dialogue all by herself. To say nothing of him at all, he did a crappy job, but he’s unbalanced across the various departments. He’s great in his one-liners, but at the same time, the story is inconsistent from start to finish, with some bumpers in between. It’s an interesting sight to see, but the motive for the “why” he turns into Bediyah is kind of half-baked throughout. Niren balances his shortcomings with what has forever been his USP.
Jishnu Bhatacharjee came straight out of movies like Ajji, Pari and Mardaani 2, so he was the right choice to direct the photography for this film. His work experience in Paris definitely helps him create this mystical world around the jungle of Shiloh. loose in it. His VFX for MPC is *Chef’s Kiss* and this may be the most neglected thing when discussing this film. From Varun’s epic transformation scene into Vediya to the beautification of the jungle’s beautiful landscape, nothing comes close to a lifelike creature (reminiscent of RRR) that looks artificial. Sanyukta Kaza’s editing is crisp in places and lackluster in others.
Bediya Movie Review: Star Performance
Varun Dhawan transforming into Bedhya scene > Varun Dhawan throughout the movie. He’s one of those charming actors, everyone knows that, and what he’s doing as Bhasker is in a charming way. His character represents a notion that disagrees with the “awakened” opinion, but Varun is consistent throughout his act, making you think he’ll follow anything. Basker says.
Abhishek Banerjee is the true hero of this film to me. Yes, Varun is the brand this movie is marketed for, but he is Abhishek who actually sells this movie to you. This is mainly because his character mostly enjoys all the good things the story has to offer. There is none.
Paalin Kabaak is a great member of Varun and Abhishek’s leading duo. Appearing as the voice of Northeast, Perlin does a great job in both comedy and drama. His outburst scene about the inclusivity of the Northeast is a good mix of awakening and humor and works equally well. Even the man’s consistency is second to none: Kriti Sanon performs well in limited screen time, but falls prey to poor character sketches. She has seen her ability to shock everyone in Mimi & this leaves a bit of a bitter aftertaste.Saurabh Shukla is just as good as she is without being in a movie.
Bediya Movie Review: Directing, Music
If this was Amar Kaushik’s first film, I would have praised him a little more than I did above, but he gave us two of his most memorable films, so this one deserves a little more than those. It doesn’t look appealing. But as an independent film, Amar has once again directed The Entertainer. The second half is not boring and leaves a sweet message at the end.
Golmaal, a Sachin-Jigar fan since his Shor In The City days, but like any music composer, lacked the proper consistency of taste that Pritam/Rahman might have. However, Bhediya’s songs, though limited, return to their original flavor. Baaki Sab Theek is the most perfect road song and most people don’t realize they need it until they hear it. If you can convince Sukhwinder Singh and Vishal Dadlani to make a song together, you know it will be a hit, and Jungle Mein Kaand proves the same. An unreleased rap of Lata Mangeshkar’s classic ‘Aayega Aayega’ His remix hits the right bars and chords and a request to Sachin-Jigar: please release this soon.
Bediya Movie Review: The Last Word
Anyway, Bhediya delivers what it promised – hilarious one-liners, classy VFX, some jump scares and good performances, but looking beyond those promises, there’s a substantial amount to add. can’t find anything.
