Bulbbul (2020)

The story starts in the nineteenth century in Bengal Presidency. Bulbbul is married off to Indranil, the Bado Thakur (Elder Lord), when she is barely five years old. She is close with Satya, Indranil’s youngest brother, who is closer to her age. Bulbbul and Satya grow up together, playing and telling each other stories of a demon woman (“chudail”). Indranil’s mentally challenged twin brother Mahender shows a strange appeal toward Bulbbul.

Twenty years later, Satya returns home from London. In that time, Mahender was killed in what is believed to be a chudail’s attack. His widow Binodini now lives in an outhouse. Indranil has left the village and Bulbbul has taken over his responsibilities. The village doctor, Sudip, regularly visits to check Bulbbul’s feet. Their closeness causes jealousy in Satya. While on a hunt, a man is killed, which is attributed to the chudail. Satya, however, suspects Sudip.
