When you are desperately waiting for something to happen and suddenly a slightly slanted chance waits at the door, would you able to refuse the same? Weighing the negative consequences at such a borderline situation seems like an impossible task.
Vikram (Rajdeep Gupta) and Rimi (Arunima Ghosh) is a married couple blissfully loves each other. They are together and happy. Moments and glimpses of their love fill the film. But there arises a lot of problem when suddenly they shift to a North Kolkata house that Rimi inherits. Tiyasha (Rituparna Sengupta) comes over to their house to rent a portion. While we know that tenants can bring a baggage of problems with them, the characters in the films are bent to obey the otherwise. Thus the keys are handed over to Tiyasha and slowly and with creepy steps she begins to open every lock possible with the help of these keys.
Even though the plot can be credited to Sujoy Ghosh but except Rituparna Sengupta, the other actors fail to suture the film properly. Director Anindya Ghosh tries desperately to weave the suspense with an edge in Bharaate, but somehow the telefilm like screenplay at times bothers and you end up wishing to reach the revealer bit almost immediately. If we forget the boring tunes and the spoiler sequences Bharaate is bound to create a haunting effect on you and the idea of tenants will definitely keep you uncomfortable.
To conclude, the story of Bharaate could have been this simple and straight. But you will have to watch Bharaate to understand the layers and unfold the thrills within this simple one line storyline. Fortunately the storyline and the way it is depicted on screen successfully create suspense and will keep you glued till the end.
