The story revolves around an unwavering woman’s quest to seek justice and her perseverance in bringing a heinous crime to light. A glimpse of Vaishali’s battle for justice for the young girls can be seen in the trailer. In her conflict with actor Aditya Srivastava’s portrayal of Bansi Sahu, she is supported by Sanjay Mishra.
The story takes place in Bihar, as evidenced by Bhumi’s authentic attempt at portraying Vaishali. The authors have made an effort to bring up the subject of why some choose to remain silent in the face of horrific crimes against women occurring nearby. Towards the end, Bhumi’s Vaishali asks, “Have you forgotten to feel the pain of others? Do you still call yourself a human or feel you are a ‘Bhakshak’ (predator)?”
Bhakshak is a “clutter-breaking film,” according to Bhumi Pednekar. Experiencing a profound moment as a part of the film, she expressed her gratitude for characters like Vaishali Singh and scripts like “Bhakshak” that dare to tell these powerful stories. I firmly think stories can transform people, and I’m dedicated to taking on parts that challenge preconceptions and push boundaries while sparking meaningful dialogue and change. She described Bhakshak as “an important film.”
This story is deeply personal to me, and shaping the journey of an investigative journalist in her pursuit of justice and truth has been an incredibly enriching experience as a director,Pulkit, Movie director
