One of the Original best since long.
12 October 2018 | by kinshuk-gaurSee all my reviews

TUMBAAD is a highly engrossing movie and a Visual treat.

Original Story amidst a backdrop of folklore makes Tumbbad a delight. Though watched it at its initial screening at the Venice festival but writing this review after re-watch again.

Story about greed that start from an ancient treasure hidden in a mansion. The process of reaching to that wealth and the desire to grab more of it and in the process going to any extent. I'll sum this movie in these couple of lines not giving the entire story and the plot.

It has some Excellent background score and gripping screenplay. Does have some minor flaws that can be ignored. Overall, original story and folklore make it a worthy watch with a superlative effort from the actor and producer Soham Shah. Enjoy almost two hours of adventure with a seasoning of Horror and you will not be disappointed. Did read some weird reviews from critics mentioning it " as an art film" not for everybody and some even mentioning " it has a lot of Marathi influence and Hindi speaking audience might not like it " very sad Indeed. My request please do watch it.
