The film stars Tripti Dimri, Avinash Tiwary, Rahul Bose, Paoli Dam and Parambrata Chattopadhyay
Netflix's Bulbbul received critical acclaim and appreciation from all over the country post its release, a year ago. Tripti Dimri played the titular character in the horror-thriller film that presented feminism in a new light.
Written and directed by Anvita Dutt, the film released exactly a year ago today (June 24). Netflix celebrated '1 year of Bulbbul' with an Instagram post that read, “It’s been one year since we first met Bulbbul, and she hasn’t left our minds since. Everything about this film- the direction, the performances, the cinematography, the art- it was all breathtaking. Beyond the stunning aesthetics of 19th century Bengal, the peacock-feather fans and antique jewels is a powerful story of heartbreak, helplessness, and blinding rage. A year later we're still thinking about the first time we met Bulbbul and all the questions she left us with. #1YearOfBulbbul”

Paoli Dam who played Binodini in the film talked about her character and told ETimes, “I was confused about how to approach her initially because, on paper, she came across as straight. Then I realized she is a tragic character in the film. As a child, she believed in what she was asked to believe without questioning and she never crossed the line. She has always played by the rule because she realized that she did not have any power to change as she was not the Badi Bahu. That's what made the character so sad. The small Binodini never grew up or got the chance to bloom.”
“She is the victim of the society that existed at that time. Before Bulbbul, I had mostly played women who are strong and they take charge. I was attempting a victim for the first time. She is a lot like the women that we see around. They can't do what they want and succumb to the patriarchy of our society. I wanted to be the medium of her journey through cinema,” the Hate Story actress added.
Bulbbul, which also features Avinash Tiwary, Rahul Bose and Parambrata Chattopadhyay in significant roles, can be streamed on Netflix.
