There are also some scenes that showcase the darkest side of people even during such deadly condition of others. Movie has many scenes that are based on some real incidents with some cinematic liberties added to them and it is something new to watch whole film in monochrome.

While it comes to performances, Rajkummar Rao is one such actor who can easily portray any kind of role and make it believable and he does the same once again with his effortless performance that will make us believe the emotions of his character. Pankaj Kapoor and Ashutosh Rana were brilliant as always. Bhumi Pednekar, Dia Mirza, Kritika Kamra, Kumud Mishra and all other actors did their part well as required for their characters.

Technically, Bheed movie looks good. Background music composed by Anurag Saikia is apt for the situations on screen.

Director Anubhav Sinha once again came up with a story that has deep emotions that can connect with Indian audience and tried to insert the role of politics, religion and caste in such deadly situations. Bheed is an impressive comeback for the director after the failure of Anek.
