It’s truly hard being a fan of horror genre in India because Bollywood hardly ever makes good horror films. But it’s 2 on 2 for Bollywood, because after the massive success of Rajkummar Rao’s Stree, Tumbbad is also getting a wide critical acclaim. Although, it doesn’t feature any famous actors, but it’s a slow burn psychological horror with a gripping story-line, which is rare for a Bollywood film.
Watch the trailer for Tumbbad here
Box office numbers aren’t encouraging enough but it’s getting magnificent reviews from audience and critics. The word of mouth is definitely going to increase the box office collection. If you’re a horror fan, it’s definitely worth checking out.
Here’s what people are saying about it on Twitter.
#tumbbad just saw this masterpiece of a horror film: fast paced, gripping; ever twisting, epic! Straddling eras: gorgeous cinematography.

The word ‘visionary’ gets thrown around too often in film journalism but what the makers of #Tumbbad have achieved is truly visionary. Astounding cinema on every level. Doubt there’ll be something like this for a long, long time. #LFF

#Tumbbad First Half Review.
Exceptional camera work, novel story and a witty screenplay powered with a set of good perfomances makes it a good horror watch. The commercial value of the content now totally depends on second half.
Business will be limited to metros.

#Tumbad belongs to the same breed of modern horror as The VVitch, Hereditary and Babadook – in ambition, craft and inviting you to read beyond what's present. This is Indian horror maturing. @s0humshah @sohumshahfilms @MumbaiFilmFest @colouryellowltd

#Tumbbad plays like a surreal drama — the principal sensation is dread, a coiled unease that you feel in the innards. The comparison you reach for isn’t The Conjuring, but something like Don’t Look Now or Lost Highway.
