The first look of Bhumi Pednekar in the movie, Son Chiriya has been released. Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, and also stars Sushant Singh Rajput, Manoj Bajpayee, Aushotosh Rana, Ranvir Shorey, and Manoj Bajpayee, the film is about dacoits of chambal. Sushant’s look for the movie was released a few months ago, and he was praised for being convincing and for his deglamourized look. It now looks like Bhumi is equally dedicated for her role, and her role is being described as bold and gritty. From the photograph, we can glean that she’s playing a fierce character, and it will be good for the audiences to see a different kind of female protagonist for the movie.
Bhumi has steadily become one of the most acclaimed new generation actress’ since her debut in Dam Lagake Haisha, she has shown that she is able to take complex roles that don’t rely on glamour but are more inclined toward the intricacy of a character. This role could be another wonderful addition in her filmography which is already looking very impressive.
Abhishek Chaubey previously directed Udta Punjab, which was another gritty drama, but based on the drug problem that mires Punjab. The movie was controversial for its content and had a tussle with the censor board itself, but finally came out victorious, with the leading actors, Alia Bhatt, Shahid Kapoor and Kareen Kapoor earning immense praise for their performances. It seems like Abhishek has chosen another difficult topic for Son Chiriya, but if his filmography is any indication, this is going to be very good for all the actors involved.
