The recent Covid-19 pandemic was like a nightmare come true for all of us. It caused chaos and resulted in unimaginable changes in our lives, with some losing their jobs, and even their freedom. While many of us were forced to isolate ourselves, there were those who lost their homes.

The pandemic has passed, but its effects are still being felt in society, with people still trying to get their lives back on track. Anubhav Sinha's ‘Bheed’ mirrors the miserable conditions in society, especially for immigrants who got the worst of this pandemic. The film has been released all over today.

Transports You To The Era Of Black And White Cinema

The movie is unique for being shot in black & white in an era of coloured motion graphics, bringing back the century-old cinematic charm. The reasons behind this will move you though! The makers created this movie in black and white to signify how dull society became during the pandemic, and how the effect of the virus and the isolation leeched the colour out of people’s life.

Power-Packed Actors Ki ‘Bheed’

‘Bheed’ features some of the supremely talented actors from the film fraternity whose performance on-screen is just as powerful as the subject of the movie. From experienced senior actors to more contemporary actors, the film has an electrifying star cast like Rajkummar Rao, Bhumi Pednekar, Dia Mirza, Pankaj Kapur, Ashutosh Rana and Kritika Kamra, that will leave you speechless with the power-packed portrayal of their strong characters.

The Actor’s Dedication Shines Through

As we’ve said, ‘Bheed’ has an ensemble of Bollywood’s best artists and they are well known for their dedication to giving life to their characters and the scenes. So much so that Rajkummar Rao requested Ashutosh Rana to slap him for real in one of the scenes to maintain the authenticity of that particular scene. Aren’t you curious to see how good of a performance the cast has put in this challenging drama?

Anubhav Sinha Sheds Light On Yet Another Dark Topic

Anubhav Sinha is a highly praised director who is known for creating films that are thought-provoking and illustrate society’s unspoken topics.

Is The Voice Of Migrants

During times of adversity, migrants face the highest number of challenges in society. During the pandemic, we witnessed the plight of these people who lost their homes and means of living in a matter of a few days. ‘Bheed’, through its narrative, is the voice of migrants not just in India but also around the world, who lived through many such tough times like pandemics and faced similar challenges.

Based On Unseen Yet True Events

‘Bheed’ depicts the hard-hitting reality of the darkest times during the lockdown but it also draws parallels between the Covid-19 pandemic-led lockdown in the country and the 1947 Partition. The movie is based on true events and showcases the story of the time when migrant workers from India were stranded without necessities, trying to find their way home in the middle of the nationwide lockdown.
