Safed Movie Review: Hard Hitting Subject But Average Performances

Safed Movie Review in detail

“Safed” attempts to shed light on the struggles faced by marginalized communities, particularly transgenders and widows. Director Sandeep Singh aims to humanize these groups while portraying the harsh realities they endure.

The film delves into the poverty-filled lives of transgenders, forced into degrading situations for survival. The plight of widows, especially young women who lose societal support after their husband’s death, is also highlighted.

The visual narrative is impactful, showcasing the atrocities faced by transgenders, from derogatory terms to disturbing encounters. Rishi Virmani and Sandeep Singh’s raw and sometimes repulsive dialogues contribute to the film’s stark portrayal.

Abhay Verma, in his debut, delivers an honest performance as Chaand/Chaandi, though his portrayal falters in capturing authentic body language and occasionally overacts in emotional scenes. However, the chemistry between Abhay Verma and Barkha Bisht shines in their shared scenes.

Director Sandeep Singh’s outspoken nature reflects in the film, making audiences aware of the social oppression faced by trans people, especially the underprivileged. Despite the film’s honest intent, shortcomings in performances and a less polished screenplay hinder its impact.

While the climax undermines Meera’s efforts, she manages to deliver some standout moments. Singh’s openness about wanting to remake the film suggests potential for improvement in future endeavors. “Safed” serves as a reminder of the pressing issues but falls short of achieving its full potential due to execution challenges.
