Critic Reviews for Tumbbad
The story is far more interesting in concept than execution; you can understand why this has been such a long gestating passion project for the director, it's just hard to fathom how the final product feels so formulaic.
For film lovers, the genre-bending is gratifying. It has been a while since a horror film spoke so eloquently about something as primal as greed and remained true to its Indian (Marathi) setting.
The true star here is Barve, who takes what could have been a regular horror film and elevates it to another level.
Debutant director Rahi Anil Barve has given Indian horror a new direction with Tumbbad.
The trick maybe is to digest Tumbbad as a dark bedtime story narrated by an orthodox Brahmin father to his kids every night. The morality and broadness of this universe is his, but the wild texture and density of details aren't.
