MOVIE REVIEW: Bhakshak is inspired by a true incident, this crime thriller grips you from the first scene, setting a tone that’s dark, disturbing, and distressing. While it’s not without flaws, the film’s earnest portrayal of hard-hitting issues and compelling narrative make it a noteworthy watch. The screenplay, though captivating, could have benefitted from a quicker pace, as the narrative occasionally feels crowded with unnecessary characters. Despite its flaws, the film succeeds in engaging the audience with its disturbing yet crucial narrative.

The story unfolds with Vaishali, portrayed convincingly by Bhumi Pednekar, embarking on a quest for truth amidst a backdrop of corruption. She captured the essence of her character’s struggles and resilience with depth and conviction. Her monologue stands out leaving a lasting impact on the audience. Aditya Srivastava shines as Bansi Sahu, embodying the epitome of power and arrogance. Sanjay Mishra and Sai Tamhankar also deliver commendable performances. Other supporting actors played their parts well.
