Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Amit Masurkar knows his craft really well and has proved again and again with Sulemani Keeda (2013) and Newton (2017). Now, Sherni is the new feather in the cap of the director. I must say thank you to the director for giving us much needed film. These are the films that Bollywood need to make and I am elated watching such a rooted film that shows nothing but reality. Now coming to Vidya Balan, I must praise her poignant performance. One thing we are sure that, neither she is happy in her marriage nor in her job. She is upset and frustrated from everything and that’s why she didn’t had a baby with her hasband. Her character portrayals are so good that she deserves an award for this too. Her conversations with Brijendra Kala, Vijay Raaz and Neeraj Kabi are treat to watch. Well, without a doubt we know there are two Sherni in the movie, one is T-12 tigress and Vidya Balan herself. Right from the cinematography, screenplay, locations, and casting, all are perfect. This is not a typical Bollywood masala film, it is more of a parallel cinema type film. What a pair of talented starcast, I absolutely loved it. The message of this film is serious and atleast people should understand it.
Sherni movie has been directed by Amit Masurkar. It has been produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Vikram Malhotra, and Amit Masurkar. The cinematography of this movie has been done by Rakesh Haridas and editing work handled by Dipika Karla.
Sherni movie budget hasn’t been revealed by the makers but it would reportedly be around 20 to 25 crores.
Altogether, Sherni movie is a big hit on OTT space. Though, it wouldn’t have been a commercial success if it had released in cinema theaters.
Last word: Watch it for Vidya Balan, Story and Direction.
Bollywood Crazies Ratings: Mindblowing (90 percent out of 100).
