Sherni Review

Sherni reminds of Avni’s case in Maharashtra. The tigress was accused of being a man-eater and killed around 13 people. She was shot dead in Yavatmal in 2018 by a civilian hunter-led search by some forest department officials. Many social activists and animal lovers called it a cold-blooded murder. The case is going on in the Supreme court, and officials are trying to find whether Avni was a man-eater or not. Vidya Balan, who is known for some scintillating performances in the past, is back with another formidable gripping tale. Sharat Saxena, Vijay Raaz performed their role brilliantly.

Director Amit Masurkar does brilliant work with Sherni. The movie asks the question of whether we have occupied animal’s territory or they have occupied ours. Aastha Tiku’s story and screenplay take you on a jungle ride. The background score and sounds are kept as real as possible. The message is also clear that no one is always the prey or the predator. When confronted with humans, sometimes animals attack, and sometimes they just disappear silently. If you love the jungle, you will love Sherni. We give the movie 3.5 stars out of 5.
