Even though #Bulbbul is a Netflix's original film, I will watch it just because @AnushkaSharma produced it. Recently, she produced #PaatalLok and it's an amazing content. Expecting #Bulbbul to be like that. Let's see how it'll be.— Vamsi (@VBY199) June 24, 2020
#BulbbulReview: #Bulbbul tends to get a bit predictable, which is the only shortcoming of this @NetflixIndia film. But just when you start to relax and flow with the emotions, along comes a scary twist that jolts you back to the edge of your seat. #Bulbbul is smartly crafted.— Somesh Sinha (@SinhaSomesh) June 24, 2020
#Bulbbul on Netflix. An extremely well-shot folklore tale that delves into themes such as child marriage, abusive men & more. @tripti_dimri23 is terrific here with @ItsAmitTrivedi's music being nothing short of haunting. Absorbing film on women power that works despite the flaws. pic.twitter.com/3R0lI3VehH— Siddarth Srinivas (@sidhuwrites) June 24, 2020
#Bulbbul is a lovely story told with great precision and beauty. And such a unique tale on the whole chudail legend.— bedika (@rbedika) June 24, 2020
#Bulbbul - folklore of a chudail, who rises from the dead after an unnatural death. A strong feminist tale, predictable with regular climax, but with spectacular VFX visuals & super fine acts from the industry outsiders Avinash & Tripti. Kudos to Anushka! 3.5/5👍 [Very Watchable] pic.twitter.com/uWquMZJBsi— N J (@Nilzrav) June 24, 2020
