Tumbbad Hindi Movie Review

Tumbbad is a psychological drama which based on three generation of a Brahmin family and set in unfreedom India in 1920 in Pune. The fantasy plot around the consequences when humans build a temple for Devi’s first-born inhuman monster Hastra. Tumbbad is a village in the coastal area of  Maharastra.

Genre: Fantasy/Horror
Director: Rahi Anil Barve, Anand Gandhi

Tumbbad is not only about monsters, it always consists of human characters who are more selfies than the Inhumans. Even the kids are very selfish like the adults. The special effects of Tumbbad are really very non-tacky and you can easily compare to any foreign movie. The monster Hastra is really very well captured in the silver screen.

Tumbbad is visually stunning drama which not only tells about a fantasy folklore it also about intriguing corruption. Sohum Shah in the role of Vinayak has put his soul in the character, he himself produced the movie from the initial point. And his believed in the script reflects his performance. The other actor’s performance and they looks bold as the film and constant hunger of gold make you believe still being a periodic drama which might feel irrelevant of because of time.

You will definitely feel the Maharashtrian vibe of the film even the dialogues are in Hindi. And that’s a compliment for the film’s production value and music done by Ajay-Atul. After a very long time, Indian movie consists such level of practical effects.

Screenplay Writer: Mitesh Shah, Adesh Prasad, Rahi Anil Barve, Anand Gandhi
Music Director: Ajay-Atul, Jesper Kyd
Cinematographer: Pankaj Kumar
Editor: Sanyukta Kaza
Production Company: Eros International, Sohum Shah Films, Colour Yellow Productions

Tumbbad is not a film that tries to makes you scared like Vishes Films and Ramsey Brothers. The hardcore cinematography will make you edge on the seat if not the story, really commendable work of Pankaj Kumar. Tummad might be an art film but it doesn’t mean it is not for the mass audience, Tumbbad is a film not to be missed from all matured movie buffs.
