What is the story of Bhediya?

Amar Kaushik has a knack for blending social commentary between fantasy and comedy, with the messenger being an outcast. In  Stree, his debut feature, a witch inverted the gender dynamics of a village. A werewolf's dogged approach to saving the environment and preventing a pandemic is the lesson in Bhediya. Told in a popular idiom that extracts willful suspension of disbelief,  Bhediya has enough bite for those who believe in the power of parables.

bhediya movie story

Bhaskar (Varun Dhawan) is an upcoming building contractor hired by a big shark (Saurabh Shukla) to clear the forest of Arunachal Pradesh for the construction of a road. During a full moon night, Bhaskar gets bitten by a wolf and transforms into a shape-shifter. This leads to a riveting conundrum. As much as the animal in him wants to save the forest, as much as the man in him wants to turn Ziro into a profitable business.

Director: Amar Kaushik
Cast: Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon, Deepak Dobriyal, Abhishek Banerjee, Paalin Kabak
Storyline: In the forests of Arunachal Pradesh, a man gets bitten by a wolf and begins to transform into the shape-shifting creature... with a moral conundrum

Niren Bhatt explores the humour in fables and highlights the ironies of life in his story.  Under the frolic in the North East, there is a timely debate on who is the outsider and the idea of purity of language.

Before critics could point out the references, the characters themselves discuss the Bollywood legacy of shape-shifting creatures. There is a situational humour in the book that comes from the difficulties of being a werewolf. When a vegan discovers he is half-animal, what should he do? What should his friends say to him about his concerns? The jokes keep the narrative moving up the hill. 

Hindi films are still virgin territory in Arunachal Pradesh, so one can breathe fresh air. Amar and the technical crew also create a sense of dread and anxiety in scenes where Bhaskar transforms into a wolf. Twilight fans won't be disappointed by the special effects of wolves howling in front of picturesque backgrounds or leaping at you in 3D. The bloody trail is woven into an evocative musical tapestry by Sachin Jigar.

Varun plays self-seeking characters who lose moral fiber along the way. We develop a soft spot for Bhaskar, a flawed character who is charmingly silly, like many of Varun's characters. In contrast to the crumpled repartees between Bhaskar and his boys' group, the beard looks good on him.

Despite her new haircut, Kriti Sanon has been cast in a role that is not fully realized onscreen. Varun's comic chemistry with Abhishek Banerjee, who plays Bhaskar's friend Guddu, doesn't interfere with the narrative. Abhishek has some of the best punchlines and delivers them effortlessly with a poker face. The seasoned Deepak Dobriyal brings his expertise in turn of phrase to the table, and newcomer Paalin Kabak adds to the texture.

As the makers seem to struggle with what to do with the wolf in the room beyond milking the quirky situation, there are long passages of self-awareness. It is also a little charitable of the editor to allow some of the pivotal scenes to meander, but eventually, the idea comes through.
