Amitabh Bachchan's much-anticipated film Jhund has finally hit the silver screen. The movie is written and directed by Nagraj Manjule. Jhund is a biopic based on the life of Vijay Barse, a social worker and retired sports teacher from Nagpur, who founded NGO Slum Soccer, which works on the upliftment of underprivileged children through football.
Even in my dreams I could not have imagined the day that my story would reach millions, but this is more than my story it’s the story of every player who touched my life and what they overcame. #jhund will capture your hearts. @Nagrajmanjule @SrBachchan @slumsoccer pic.twitter.com/tgWatTb7Dc— Vijay Barse (@VijaySBarse) March 3, 2022
Amitabh Bachchan plays the role of Vijay Barse. In a country where caste is still a social reality, and a sensitive subject for mainstream cinema, the film focuses on bringing forth the issue of class and gender in sports in a sensitive manner.
Obviously, Twitter has a lot to say about the film. Let's take a look at some of them.
#Jhund is absolutely brilliant and there’s no two ways about it! Beautiful performances by the young cast led by the legend himself #AmitabhBachchan #NagrajManjule has a winner again, compelling us to acknowledge our biases and embrace one another as equals ❤️— ANMOL JAMWAL (@jammypants4) March 4, 2022

Would have rated it 4 if it wasn't 3 hours long.
We all know what Nagaraj Manjule is capable of and jhund just proved it more.
Big B is amazing as always
If you like sports drama you shouldn't miss it.

Here's to hoping that mainstream Bollywood cinema makes more such films on caste and does justice to them. Kudos to the team of Jhund.
