Taapsee Pannu’s Blurr Hindi Movie Review & Ratings | Hit or Flop?

Blurr Movie Review: It’s no secret that Taapsee Pannu is one of the most popular actors in Bollywood right now, and she’s set to star in a number of exciting films. In 2022, she had a string of unsuccessful films out in several languages, including “Mishan Impossible,” “Looop Lapeta,” “Shabaash Mithu,” “Dobaara,” and “Tadka.” The new thriller drama she’s created is called “Blurr,” and it premieres on the Zee5 OTT service today. If we want to know if this film will be successful for her this year, we should read a critical analysis of it.


Blurr Movie Review

Both of them look exactly alike; they’re twins. Since Gayatri now resides with her boyfriend Neel, her blind sister Gautami is on her own. Because she is convinced that someone is lurking in her home unseen, Gautami makes several suicide attempts. She makes the conscious decision not to hang herself, but tragically passes away anyway. In their investigation, police conclude that Gautami committed suicide. To find out what happened to her sister, Gayatri disagrees with this assessment and decides to investigate the case independently. Gayatri’s eyes start to worsen around the same time.

Movie Verdict

Based on the Spanish film “Julia’s Eyes,” Blurr is a remake. Certain aspects of the original film made sense to Spanish audiences, but these were not addressed in Blurr. Despite the fact that the movie’s plot, storytelling style, and other components are easily translated into any language, some viewers may find offensive material. There are some thrilling sequences in Blurr, but the film as a whole is tedious and full of predictable scenes. There isn’t going to be much happening in the movie’s second act to keep us engaged.

There is no change in Taapsee Pannu’s performance throughout the film. She did a good job in some scenes but appeared very unnatural in others. She’s been popping up in a tonne of films recently, and her acting seems to be consistent across roles, down to the expressions on her face. Because of this, she comes off as dull on screen. She may need to pick parts that give her more freedom to act and allow her to play a wider range of characters. Gulshan Devaiah’s performance is greatly elevated by the few opportunities he is given in the film. Everyone else played their parts perfectly.

Regarding its visual quality, Blurr succeeds. The music composed by Rishi Dutta and Shivangi Bhayana works beautifully with the scenes. Some scenes get the excitement they need, while others gain intensity. Cinematographer Sudhir K. Chaudhary did a good job overall, but he reused several popular shots and frames. Manish Pradhan’s editing of the book left much to be desired. The film’s production values are high because of the team’s collective efforts.

Ajay Bahl, the film’s director, made an effort to maintain continuity with the source material by making few alterations to the scenes. Unfortunately, this turned out to be a major flaw of the film, as there are only a handful of non-Indian cultural scenes. He’s been on a roll lately, with two solid performances in “Section 375” and “BA Pass” before this one.

Though it’s a good thriller overall, not all Indian audiences will be comfortable with Blurr due to its narrative style and explicit content. You can catch it on Zee5, an online video service, if you have some free time this weekend.

Plus Points:

  • Climax
  • Twists

Minus Points:

  • Predictable scenes
  • Over the top performances by few actors

Rating: 2.5/5
