The most multifarious flock trammeled tightly together to look and feel like one, Indian society but has traversed through several curves where it almost fell apart and it didn't. One such has been the recent and still prevailing Covid contagion. Set during the early onset in April 2020 when the whole world groped and dabbled to appraise how pernicious its footprint would be. Overwhelmed by ominously creeping fear of unbeknownst when instinct was the only defense, when the entire country was ordered to lock down for three weeks, thousands of daily wage earners from various cosmopolises embarked upon a walk back home from asphalt jungles on to asphalt beneath their blistering feet. It will be years before history deciphers if they had better options. In a fictitious suburb Tejpur in a fictitious state in India they hit a checkpoint set up under nationwide restrictions to travel as a preemptive measure to contain the spread of the most intractable virus known to mankind. The travelers were not prepared for this nor was the person in charge of the checkpoint. Surya Kumar Singh was on his first independent charge to manage this post. Suddenly this 100 meter long traffic jam turned in to a microcosm of the most disparate, unalike and the largest such society in the world. Surya Kumar at the helm representing the order must transcend across his own personal history of feeling inadequate to fit in must protect the sanctity of the society that India is. The people that looked like a 'BHEED' must feel like a society. India must win. Read More Read Less

Udita Jhunjhunwala Livemint Anubhav Sinha’s black-and-white film exposes social injustice with pieces arranged for a big bang, only to splutter and subside, but not before raising some uncomfortable questions. Jun 1, 2023 Full Review Namrata Joshi Screen International What Bheed might lack in depth and nuance, it makes up for with an underlying sense of urgency. Mar 24, 2023 Full Review Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express With the context missing, this well-intentioned film becomes less than its powerful moving parts. Rated: 2.5/5 Mar 24, 2023 Full Review Anuj Kumar The Hindu Powered by persuasive performances by Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Kapur, and Aditya Srivastava, the film addresses the spectre of caste and class divide in the times of COVID-19. Jan 2, 2024 Full Review Ishita Sengupta OTTplay Bheed (written by Sinha, Saumya Tiwari and Sonali Jain) never comes across as surface level representation. Part of the reason being the film is telling a story we are acquainted with if not conversant with the details. Jul 20, 2023 Full Review Rohan Naahar The Indian Express Furious but compassionate, bleak yet not entirely without hope, Bheed is a movie defined by duality — of its characters, its themes, and even its politics.

Flixster F 6.5/10 Considering my expectations, the film was relatively good! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/11/23 Full Review Murtaza J It's friction made out of truth.. the pandemic period of UP . Truth lies out there.. can't deny the sufferings of those era. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review Manas Jyoti B An intense masterpiece I would call it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/28/23 Full Review Mirza M 'Bheed' is a powerful lockdown tale that is intense, unrelenting and thought-provoking throughout. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Muhammad A The only thing i wanted after the movie finished in theatres was to hug Anubhav sinha for his grit. A true grit in true sense. The grey and cinematic experience created by this film is one of a kind. To consolidate as many crucial as well excruciating topics as it could was merely a good choice for the story to be a presentable one on the table. Other wise it was a short film tbh. I have been a cheerful admirer of anubhav since article 15. The technical aspects he carefully incorporates into his film makes it look like a big budget "drama". I bow down for his sheer dedication towards the craft that he understands goes into the film. The score by Dhakde was absolutely phenomenal. Haven't praised an indian original score in a long time. This is both, the kind of film India deserves and it needs right now. Merely 30 people in the theatre. Everyone at that moment surely developed a taste in films i really wanted them to im sure sinha also wants the same and believe me when i say i think they did. They clapped at the end. Waited for all the credits to roll out. See everyone who made this film possible. All this while still sitting on their seats. What an experience i had. Soumik's cinematography made me search his works immediately i reached home. Brilliant. Neat yet so strikingly dark. Sound design was so good. More than visual treat i would say the sound impressed me more. It was so good to see Aditya srivastava. I love his presence in any film. I have been seeing him anurag kashyap's movies and he is exhilarating in this as well just like everybody else. Anubhav sir, don't you be gone before i turn upto you and with you get to make films that challenge the acts of hatred and ignorance people in this country move ahead with these days. To make this country a better place live and and die in. Thanks for the film. My friend quoted after the film ended "If guts had a face it would be Anubhav. No wonder he made article 15". Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/29/23 Full Review Chaitanya M Although I wanted to love this film a lot, it falls short of impact. That's the thing I feel about Anubhav Sinha; he creates good cinema, but always leaves me wanting more and feeling that something was missing. Anywho, great cast and good message. Additionally, a beautiful song from 'Mumbai Me Ka Ba' fame, Dr. Sagar to take back with you. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
