Bheed, a film starring Bhumi Pednekar, Rajkummar Rao, and Pankaj Kapur, explores the global pandemic lockdown that impacted the whole country and caused chaos.
Do We Still Have Freedom Of Expression Left ?
Recently the trailer was taken down from YouTube and people are reacting to this in a strong way, the question is being asked that is India still a democratic country where you can raise questions to your government and also criticize the government policies and decisions?
Why in the present day India of 2023 it is becoming so hard for the government to take any criticism whatsoever and why is it so intolerant and authoritarian that it has to take down anything and everything that is against its policies?
The trailer for Anubhav Sinha’s upcoming film Bheed has recently gone viral. Millions of people have watched the trailer on YouTube, but it has since been taken down and made private. This is reportedly due to the trailer’s severe backlash over the way the makers depicted the lockdown.
About The Film
Rajkummar Rao and Pankaj Kapur’s film Bheed, which also stars Bhumi Pednekar, shed light on the pandemic-induced lockdown that has ravaged the entire country.
The trailer can still be viewed on Rajkumar Rao’s official Instagram page. The trailer was posted by the actor two days ago with the caption, “I’m thrilled and amazed by the outpouring of support for the #Bheed trailer! Thanks for your support!”
Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha, who has entertained audiences with films such as ‘Ra.One,’ ‘Tum Bin,’ ‘Dus,’ and ‘Thappad,’ is coming up with his next intriguing project, ‘Bheed,’ which will portray the difficulties faced by ordinary people during the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown.
When asked why the movie was shot in black and white, he explained: “‘Bheed’ is a story about the most perilous times in human history, when everything changed. The main reason for shooting the film in black and white was to show how the visuals of social disparity during India’s lockdown were strikingly similar to what people experienced during the 1947 Partition.”
The director went on to say that he plans to share real stories of people losing their jobs and family members’ lives as a result of the pandemic and lockdown in the film.
This story is about people whose lives were abruptly changed, and the colors from their lives were lost when the border was drawn within the nation, he continued.
Following the release of the trailer, many people labeled the film as anti-national and had strong feelings about it. The trailer has been removed by the creators, but it is unclear why.
While many praised the teaser and the trailer, some compared it to India’s partition in 1947. Many people are upset that the trailer is no longer available and are wondering if this is democracy.
“Undeclared emergency, media under control,” one user wrote. Another user added: “It’s unfortunate that there needs to be another way to connect with people.” “Kissa Kursi ka,” one person wrote.
T-Series and Anubhav Sinha’s Benaras Media work together on the film’s production. Virendra Saxena, Aditya Shrivastav, Kritika Kamra, and Karan Pandit also appear in the movie. March 24 will mark the movie’s theatrical debut.
