Bhumi Pednekar is all set to star in the Hindi remake of Bhaagamathie, the Telugu film with Anushka Shetty as the lead role. During the promotions of the Hindi remake of Bhaagamathie, Bhumi recently addressed her perceived competition in social media. The actress said that her respect for Anushka’s fan base was unaffected by the negative comments she received on social media.
The film is a mixed bag: It has a strange storyline, an abysmal script, and uninspired editing. The final moments are particularly immoral. The film is a bizarre misfire of Laxmii proportions, and one can’t help but think of how much better it would have been if it had been made with more finesse and style. The film is, of course, a poor excuse for not achieving the high expectations it had originally.
The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Akshay Kumar, and Vikram Malhotra. Mahie Gill, Arshad Warsi, and Jishu Sengupta also star. Mahie Gill is a South movie heroine, but her character in the film is based on the real life story of Anushka Shetty. As the investigating officer, Mahie Gill tries to get Ishwar Prasad in trouble and expose him.
The subplot of the film involves the theft of Hindu temple idols. A saffron-stole-wearing character claims that the thefts are an attack on Hindutva, and that if the government had resorted to such a practice, it would have fallen at the feet of the minority community. In light of the ongoing farmers’ protests, “gareeb kisaan ka beta” (the poor farmer) character assumes an even greater significance. The story doesn’t go anywhere, though.
A key role in the film is played by an actor with hearing and speech disabilities. He spent two months learning sign language before filming. His character zeroes in on Bhumi Pednekar and a prisoner. In this way, she can become both an activist and a victim of the nanny state. Moreover, Bhumi Pednekar is an environmentalist who has a passion for protecting the environment.
The film is about a politician named Ishwar Prasad who vows to resign from his post if the government is unable to recover the stolen idols. Chanchal’s political rivals devise a plan to destroy Ishwar’s credibility by interrogating Chanchal Chauhan, the former fiance of Abhay. The movie follows her journey to freedom, which begins with her escape from jail and the slaying of her fiance’s brother.
