Bhumi's Investigative Stint: 'Bhakshak' Unveils Gripping Tale

Scheduled to premiere on February 9, “Bhakshak,” an upcoming crime drama from Netflix India, is based on true events. Produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and helmed by director Pulkit, the film is backed by Gauri Khan and Gaurav Verma. Featuring a talented cast including Bhumi Pednekar, Sanjay Mishra, Aditya Srivastava, and Sai Tamhankar in pivotal roles, the makers offered a glimpse into the film’s atmosphere with the release of its teaser on Thursday.

Delving into the narrative of an unyielding woman’s pursuit for justice, “Bhakshak” unfolds the story of Vaishali Singh, portrayed by Bhumi Pednekar. In the role of an investigative journalist, Vaishali is determined to expose a heinous crime, shedding light on the harsh reality of crimes against women. The recently released teaser, while keeping much under wraps, reintroduces Bhumi in a de-glamorized avatar, a departure from her urban comedy “Thank You For Coming” the previous year.

The teaser concludes with Bhumi delivering a powerful line to a girl, stating, “Bachchon ke adhikar ke liye lad rahe hain hum, samajh rahi ho? (We’re fighting for the rights of children, do you understand?)” Director Pulkit echoed these sentiments in a statement, expressing the film’s intention to bring attention to the stark realities of society and initiate conversations that pave the way for significant change. He eagerly anticipates more individuals engaging in this essential dialogue.

In a statement, Gaurav Verma, a producer at Red Chillies Entertainment, expressed, “Our dedication lies in crafting stories that go beyond mere entertainment and serve as sources of enlightenment. This film stands as a testament to our unwavering commitment to narratives that not only captivate audiences but also stimulate thoughtful reflections on societal issues.”

Ruchikaa Kapoor Sheikh, Director of Original Films at Netflix India, commented, “Bhakshak is a compelling narrative, drawing inspiration from true events. It revolves around a tenacious journalist’s pursuit of justice against formidable odds. Boasting outstanding performances from Bhumi Pednekar, Sanjay Mishra, and an exceptional ensemble cast, the film represents our endeavor to present captivating stories in collaboration with remarkable creators. Helmed by Pulkit and produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, this investigative drama underscores our commitment to initiating meaningful conversations and making a lasting impact through our feature films.”

Mark your calendars for the premiere of ‘Bhakshak’ on February 9, exclusively on Netflix.
