Published

on

This is a Hindi language – Horror movie first aired and released on Netflix on 24 June 2020. Written and directed by Anvita Dutta, The movie is set in the backdrops of a small village in the British Bengal. The genre is based on horror. Produced by Anushka Sharma and Karnesh Sharma and the production house being Clean Slate Films. It’s running time is 94 minutes. The main protagonists are Tripti Dimri  (Bulbul), being the elder bride, Avinash Tiwary (Satya) plays the role of Bulbul’s brother-in-law, Parambrata Chattopadhyay (Dr. Sudip) plays the role of a doctor, Paoli Dam (binodini) being the younger bride. The movie takes it’s name from the reel name of Tripti Dimri in the movie. The main protagonist is an antihero, or the one who is a hero and a villain at the same time in the story. Ironically, bulbul is portrayed both as a witch or a demon as well as the Hindu god, Maa Kaali. 

People love stories that contain an antihero, which lacks heroic qualities but are still considered a hero. Same is with this, the main protagonist(Bulbul) is portrayed as an antihero. Bulbul is fashioned as a sharply relevant fable. It is a powerfully feminist, revenist tale of a woman wronged, and it is told with economy, precision and feeling. The mix of classic pre-Renaissance Bengal and desi-horror gothic making for gripping viewing. The chudail or the witch portrayed has been described as a human – demon with ‘ulta pair’ or inverted legs that lives on trees and hunts only at night. On it’s announcement, it was described as a periodic piece set in a vibrant atmosphere amidst old-age beliefs and superstitions.

As the movie is set in the backdrops of british Bengal under the Bengal presidency, it consists some Bengali words and also some Bengali folk songs. There are as such no usage of abusive language, though it consists small seconds of nudity. It’s a good movie and you can watch it with family.

What if the Money Heist characters were my friends in real life…?

Published

on

I love money heist and I don’t see why wouldn’t one? It’s fascinating, thrilling, perfectly depicted, and it just makes you fell in love with each character, I don’t know how they could do it, but they surely did. It happens rarely that I like something and don’t think about it, same with money heist. It’s lingered in my mind for months and I thought of it as ‘What if the money heist characters were my friends?’ What would be my life? How would they ease my problems and pains? Let’s think.
     First I’d be thinking of the supreme leader, mastermind, wise, meticulous, clairvoyant, and no non-sense person one and only our very own ‘Professor’. We know that Professor has immense, and nonpareil abilities to deal with difficulties and problems and that’s why he being my friend would make my life way simpler. He would help me to deal with my exams, studies, career problems, and legal problems also. His presence would assure my saftey incase someone hurts or threatens me. Moreover it’d be enlighting to talk, and debate with him plus learning different things and aspects of life from him is like learning from the best. The most important thing that’ll happen to me, if he were my friend is identifying myself and my purpose and that’s what matters the most.
     Let’s just imagine if professor would impact this much on my life then what would happen if Tokyo, Berlin, Nairobi, Lisbon, and Denver were my friends too. Berlin, a commamding, strange, savage yet romantic, lively, and completely team-man is someone whom you want by your side all the time. Because he’d inspire you to do something great and keep your back for always, and would teach you the essence of life and love through his poetic yet practical nature. Berlin who was terminally ill but never allowed it to impede him is a great man to have as a friend.
     If Professor and Berlin are all about teaching and supporting, Tokyo and Denver are all about the fun. Tokyo being a reckless, impulsive, brave, smart, and very hot woman is absolutely irresistible. If she were my friend it would put me in a different dimension where every boy wants to be my friend, and it would make me quite a popular, wouldn’t it? However it’d be naive to deny that her recklessness would put me in a danger situations, but who cares when you’ve Professor backing up. Whereas Denver is a party animal, totally extrovert but has a ridiculously weird laugh. His relationship with his father and Monica tells us that he’s a good hearted  and trustworthy person. Which means if it were possible then Denver would be my loyal friend with whom I can enjoy the life with whom I can eat, drink, and travel. Life would be adventurous if Denver were my friend.
     At last I need to talk about Nairobi and Lisbon. Nairobi, a cool, calm, and loving person would help to overcome stress and depression in life. Moreover she’s such a lovely person to spend time with and talk about dreams. On the other hand Lisbon is preoccupied and depressing yet a smart and brave woman. However why I want her to be my friend is because she’s an ex-cop and having such person behind is always lucrative.
     So this is how my life would be easier, interesting, and adventurous if money heist characters were my friends in real life.
