The much-anticipated movie release of the week on OTT is Bhakshak on Netflix. This film is based on the real-life incidents that took place in a shelter home for girls in Muzaffarpur, Bihar. Bhumi Pednekar takes on the role of a dedicated journalist determined to uncover the truth. After a brief hiatus, it’s great to see Bhumi Pednekar portraying a small-town character once again. The movie has been receiving rave reviews on social media. Directed by Pulkit and produced by Red Chilies Entertainment, Bhakshak is a film based on the horrific true story of the abuse suffered by the shelter home girls. It sheds light on the shocking Muzaffarpur Case, which shook the entire nation. After a medical examination, it was confirmed that around 34 girls had been sexually abused. The case resulted in Bihar MLA Brajesh Thakur being sentenced to life imprisonment. In the film, Aditya Srivastava of CID fame plays the role of Bansi Sahu, the owner of the shelter home.
Netizens have been praising the performances and direction of the film. They’ve particularly commended the talent of Bhumi Pednekar, Aditya Srivastava, and Sai Tamhankar. The narration of the film has also been receiving immense appreciation. Here are a few reactions from social media:
“What a terrifying and inspiring film #Bhakshak is. Takes you closest to the darkest corner of the most heinous crime one can commit. Amazing performances by #BhumiPednekar and #AdityaSrivastava” – ADITYA

“Got to watch #Bhakshak on @Netflix. Similar to ‘Noor’ in a sense but touches on a different social issue. Deals with how a small-time independent reporter exposes a racket involving local big shots at great personal risk. Also makes a few powerful statements through the movie” – Pavan Thimmavajjala
The initial reviews of Bhakshak are highly positive, and films with a strong social message have been greatly appreciated. It’s truly gratifying to see the talented Bhumi Pednekar receiving such immense praise.
