Vidya Balan is in the lead role. Vijay Raaz, Brijendra Kala, Sharat Saxena and Neeraj Kabi are also there. Each and everyone is talented. The movie plot highlights many social issues of Modern India. It tells about conservation of animals and nature, it portraits male domination, corrupt bureaucrats, yellow journalism etc.
The story is about a tigress, which attacks the cattles and the people of the nearby villages of the forest. The forest department tries to find the tigress and transfer it to a national park. And then the complexities come in. Local politicians made this issue political and tried to create vote banks for themselves. The corrupt bureaucrats are only concerned about their promotions.
Most probably, the film is shot in the forests of Madhya Pradesh. Cinematography is amazing. Most of the shots were taken in natural light. There's a breathtaking 360 degree aerial shot. Direction and screenplay are brilliant. Vidya Balan's performance is marvelous. Though each and everyone performed really well. If I'm not wrong, the last shots were taken at Salar Jung Museum in Hyderabad. You'll feel the pain if you look carefully at the eyes of those animals.
Why we have to always disturb the balance between animals and nature for economical development? Is the term "man-eaters" really necessary for predators? Aren't they just hungry? Isn't it normal for them? If we keep constructing mining facilities, if we keep making highways in between forests and national parks then where would the animals go? Are the officials taking sufficient necessary actions against poachers? Who are the real animals here? Yes! "Sherni" is questioning about these all.
Honestly speaking, I was in doubt because nobody tries to make any film on this issues before "Sherni". This concept is totally untouched in Bollywood. But this film will not disappoint you. If you're a nature lover or not, you should not miss this movie.
According to me, "Sherni" is a must watch movie.
Do watch "Sherni" and have a happy weekend!
