Bhediya (2022) Public Review

November 25, 2022

Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon's Bhediya brings to mainstream Indian cinema a concept which has largely been regaled to small-budget ventures or oblique representations. The film carves a path in lycan (werewolf) lore in India and also effectively incorporates the lens through which the rest of the country is looking at Northeast.

Neither funny nor scary !

Varun Dhawan’s Bhediya takes the audience to the forests of Arunachal Pradesh, where Bhaskar Sharma (Varun), a budding contractor, has been tasked with carving a highway, right through the middle of the forest – which incidentally has social, religious and cultural significance for the locals. Despite warnings from the residents, Bhaskar, who has in tow with him, his cousin Guddu (Abhishek Banerjee) and friend Joe (Paalin Kabak), carries on with his plans, only to be bitten by a wolf on a full moon night.
