Bastar review

The Hindustan Times review of the film read, “Bastar serves as a stark reminder of the complexities inherent in the battle against Naxalism, yet falls short of fully exploring the nuances of its subject matter. While its patriotic fervour and commitment to highlighting the sacrifices of those caught in the crossfire are commendable, the film's reluctance to confront the shades of grey within its narrative leaves it feeling somewhat incomplete.”

What director and producer had said about Bastar

Recently, Sudipto called the film a "human document". “We are focusing on the people who are facing violence on an everyday basis... It is more about gun violence which we have concentrated on in the film,” the director had said, as quoted by news agency PTI.

Vipul, had said, “We didn't want to get into politics. We want to explore human tragedy. All politics is on one side and real sufferers are the common people. When will their pain come out in front of people? We usually swear at politicians and leave the issue but this real human tragedy needs to come forward.”
