The Big Bull | A Critical Movie Review | Disney + Hotstar

Reviewed By: Suraqua Fahad

The Big Bull is a 2021 Indian Hindi-language crime drama film directed and co-written by Kookie Gulati and produced by Ajay Devgn, Anand Pandit, Vikrant Sharma and Kumar Mangat Pathak. This movie has very well projected the loopholes of the share market and its consequences on the economic system of the country. This movie is a well defined example for describing “the Life of the Dreamers” (i.e. common man) that completely depends on the physiological needs which is well described by Maslow’s Hierarchy need theory

The Big Bull movie is also trying to depict the involvement of the administrative structure in the scams and how the white collar criminals take the clean chit from the judicial authorities through manipulation of the laws.

Comment of the last dialog of the movie communicated by Meera (Journalist, played by Ileana D’Cruz) “this 2020 is changed and I am happy that country is in such an inspiring MBAs” is itself a scam for those dreamers who want to made changes in the country against monopolization, capitalization, bureau-democratic self-ideologist economic system and mafia of privatization in the economic system. On the basis of empirical evidences in contemporary scenario, proletariats are still struggling for their survival needs and bourgeois are taking all the expensive facilities, just because of the wide gap between the distribution of power and resources and this is not something fresh or new served on the table of power as already many examples are there like Harshad Mehta’s Scam, Vijay Maliya’s Scam etc.

This discriminative theory is still practiced in the 21st digitalized century because of monopolization of resources and biased use of political power for the self-profitable interest by the different politicians. Have you ever heard that politicians suffer due to hunger, poverty or any other basic need deficiency? Have you ever read that the politicians from the authoritative political party are in jail because of scam charges? You get yourself the right answer. So SCAM is nothing, it is just a synonym of ‘use of biased power’ and the culprits automatically are those who don’t have any power i.e. common people or we can say ‘Dreamers’ and they are the culprits because of putting their legs in other’s authoritative person’s shoe.
