Mahatma Gandhi had said that there are enough resources on earth for man's need, not for his greed. This is the core of Tumbbad, the latest offering from producers Anand L. Rai and Soham Shah. The temptation to get more often makes a human being a devil. Tumbbad takes you on such mysterious, thrilling and scary journey in gestures.
The film begins in 1918 in Tumbbad, a village in Maharashtra. A widow (Jyoti Malashe) is engaged in the service of an old man in a dilapidated mansion of this village, which is drenched by torrential rains. According to the prevailing story in the village, it is the temple of Hastar, the greedy son carrying the gold of the dilapidated Haveli Devi, in which the treasure is hidden. The widow, who lives in her broken hut in the wilderness with two young children, not only serves the old man in this desire to sleep, but also arranges for his monster wife to be fed in chains with life on her palm. Does.
Despite this, his hand seems to be nothing but a gold coin, on the contrary his younger son also has to lose. Therefore, she leaves the village of Tumbbad forever with her elder son Vinayak and comes to Pune and promises him that he will never return to Tumbbad. Vinayak makes a promise to his mother, but does not forget the treasures of his forefathers and grows up and returns to Tumbbad only in search of her. Now, to see the extent to which he reaches the greed to collect these gold coins, the audience shrieks.
The story, which lasts for three generations, is a mixture of genres such as historical, period, fantasy, horror, which is based on the Marathi novel Tumbbadche Khot by Sripad Narayan Pendse. Director Rahi Anil Barve has entered his first film with a new and comprehensive approach. He has got the full support of creative director Anand Gandhi in empowering the film. Tumbbad breaks the worn-out body of Hindustani horror films and then drives them away with tantra-mantra, chandeliers.
Great visual effects and Pankaj Kumar's cinematography create an atmosphere of panic right from the beginning. Many scenes make the eyes wrench in fear. In the second half, some scenes are repetitive, which sometimes reduces the interest, but climaxes the story. Soham Shah, who received praise for his natural acting in the film 'Simran', has climbed up a notch in the role of Vinayak. Jyoti Malashe in his mother's role and child artist Mohammad Samad in his son's role have also done a great job. The music of Ajay-Atul and Jesper Keid is in line with the film.
