Bulbbul is a relevant fable that deals with a wronged woman. It actually talks of a woman who is dangerous. The cast basically includes Tripti Dimri, Rahul Bose, Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Paoli Dam, Avinash Tiwary along with many more. The durevtor is Anvita Dutt. The movie involves a lot of supernatural elements and thebbesy thing about this movie is that it talks about a free spirit who was known gor climbing trees. She used to pluck raw mangoes in her ‘mykaa’ and then she was married to an old husband who happens to be Indranil. He used to live in a big mansion and had a mentally challenged twin. The other members of the family include Binodini and a younger brother named Satya.
There were a lot of other influences too in the film. It somewhat got the link to that of the classic of Rabindranath Tagore, “Chhokher Bali,” which some very relevant names as that of Mahendra and Binodini. Whatsoever, Bulbbul gives a feel of the classic pre-Renaissance Bengal. You would also get a vibe of the desi horror through the scenes. Some of the instances include that bloody signs that a deep crimson palette resembles! The resonance of the sound, the look and feel of the ‘haveli,’ ‘sindoor,’ and ‘bichhiyas.’
The movie is actually to the point and the characters played throughout the scenes one after the other, resemble very much to the mental blocks that people own. One such indgance was that of the twin roles of “Thakur mosai” who was mentally trapped. Certainly, Dimri was terrific in her performances and Dam also did exceptionally well in her character of the ‘choti bahu.’ The ‘alta’ – the thick liquid worn by women on their feet, the white attire of the widows, the crisp dhutis and the shawls of the men, are some of the most beautiful scenes resembling the-then period of Bengal as well as gives a twist and turn to the plots in the film.
Last but not the least, some other references include the ‘palki’ and the dialogues were also one of their kinds. The ‘chudail’ gave it a feel to the audience through its visual translation as if some mystery is always shrouding the figure, all the while. It is a perfect blend of mystery, and Dutt has undoubtedly upheld the culture of Bengal in the most amazing way!
