    ‘Bheed’ movie review: Anubhav Sinha’s cry for social justice needs to be heard

    While covering the mass migration of workers from cities to villages during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, one realised who we are cannot be separated from where we’re from.
    Set at a junction on the State border, it is an account of a caravan of migrants of different social hues who are stopped by a police officer who is dealing with another virus that is prevailing for centuries in society.
    It is the incisive dialogues that propel the story.
    If Article 15 was from the gaze of a high-caste police officer finding his feet in a difficult situation; the companion piece is from the point of view of a lower-rung officer, caught between his social identity and an unprecedented state of affairs.
    But Surya Kumar Singh (Rajkummar Rao), a young, upright police officer, isn’t sure of his power even when he is made the in-charge of the post by his well-meaning superior Yadav (Ashutosh Rana), because his lower caste identity comes in the way.
    Cast in a challenging role where there is no connection between the body language and what’s cooking inside the character, Rajkummar deftly brings out the relentless squirming inside Surya.
