Bulbbul, Anushka Sharma’s production for Netflix, is releasing on June 24. Anushka Sharma, as I have told you earlier, is this genre’s darling. Her project up next is Bulbbul releases next week. The trailer launched a day ago. I am not surprised if you don’t know that the series releases on 24th June. That’s because the trailer launched just a day ago – and a week before the launch of the series. The promotions of this series have been pretty lowkey.
The synopsis is pretty generous, though. Here goes:
A story set in the late 19th Century Bengal, Bulbbul traverses the journey of a young girl from innocence to strength, as the legend of a chudail casts a looming shadow over her world. Bulbbul is a supernatural thriller produced by actor/producer Anushka Sharma and Karnesh Ssharma (Clean Slate Filmz). Anvita Dutt directs. It’s the haunting tale of a young, innocent bride who grows up to be a strong, mysterious woman presiding over her household. She harbours a painful past as several murders of men plague her village.
Looking at the trailer, this could be the first time that someone explores the chudail concept in a mature, experienced manner. The only chudails we have seen until now are the screechy, garishly dressed ones that meet their end at the hands of a Baba or someone other ascetic. The cast includes Rahul Bose, Tripti Dimri and Avinash Tiwari. I would suggest, right off the bat that without waiting for a review, please start watching Bulbbul whenever you can. Anushka’s earlier two forays into horror fiction have been interesting, with Pari the horror movie Bollywood needed but didn’t want.
