Bhagwan Bharose Movie Review:-
The ‘Bhagwan Bharose’ film’s opening scene reveals how deep (or shallow) Bhola’s (Satendra Soni) and Shambhu’s (Sparsh Suman) comprehension of Hindu mythology is, as the former believes Naga-Lok is just approximately 40 kilometers beneath the Earth’s surface. Throughout the film, it is clear how sensitive brains acquire views depending on what they learn from those who influence them. The couple is continually confronted with opposing views, calling into question their faith and knowledge of their own and other religions. As they navigate life, the changing sociopolitical landscape motivates their adventure.
Shiladitya Bora and Sudhakar Nilmani’ Eklavya’ set the story in an unnamed village in North India in 1989, when one would tweak the television antennae using sticks to get the picture to transmit on the screen. The rustic existence also introduces us to people like Panditji (Shrikant Verma), the village priest and teacher, who labels everyone who disagrees with dogmatic ideas as asur (devil). This group comprises an atheist (Manu Rishi Chaddha) and members of another religion from a nearby village. Bhola’s training causes him to accept the elders’ ethos as gospel truth, and the story culminates in an occurrence that results in the loss of innocence and childhood.
From Ab to Sab Bhagwan Bharose makes a strong statement about how bias and intolerance are instilled in young minds and how manipulative people can distort the narrative to their advantage. Bora and photographer Surjodeep Ghosh weave a complex rural tapestry that appears gorgeous, charming, and calm on the surface, yet the undercurrents of turmoil quickly become obvious. The background soundtrack and music in Indian Ocean are dramatic and match the scenario beautifully.
In terms of performances, the film also delivers. Satendra Soni impresses as the befuddled and duped young man. When his faith is called into question, he shows off his acting skills. Sparsh Suman plays his pal, and Vinay Pathak plays his loving grandfather Nanababu. Masumeh Makhija as Bhola’s mother, Radha, is a pleasant surprise. While Shrikant Verma plays the prejudiced priest brilliantly, Manu Rishi Chaddha is the voice of reason, especially when he eloquently explains about the asur within us who wreaks havoc when it becomes insecure.
The film provokes thought without being preachy. What genuinely distinguishes the film is the strong message it conveys while maintaining the fascinating story and narrative. This one is worth seeing for the immersive experience.
