Bhediya Movie Storyline, Review and Plot

Bhaskar Sharma and his cousin Janardan “Jana” go to a small town in Arunachal Pradesh to work on a road construction project. They meet two local guides, Jomin and Panda, who tell them about the place. One night in the forest, Bhaskar is bitten from behind by a wolf. Dr. Anika, the town veterinarian, treats his wound.

The next day, Bhaskar notices strange changes: he can smell and hear much better and can even talk to animals. Meanwhile, the locals are upset about plans to cut down trees for the road. Two men working on the project are found dead with animal bite marks, indicating an animal attack. Panda believes a werewolf named Yapum is responsible.

It is later revealed that Bhaskar is the werewolf. Every night since the bite, he changes form and loses control. Jan and Jomin try to keep Bhaskar away from people. A local cop finds out and threatens to tell everyone, but the wolf that bit Bhaskar kills the cop. They go to an old doctor who says Bhaskar can be cured if the same wolf bites him again on a new moon night at the same spot.

Bhaskar, Jana, and Jomin go into the forest to find the wolf. Dr. Anika reveals that she is the werewolf who bit Bhaskar. She was bitten by a wolf a century ago and has been protecting the forest ever since, killing anyone who tries to destroy it. She bit Bhaskar with the intention of killing him but let him go because she saw kindness in him. She urges him to stop deforestation.

Dr. Anika is captured by the police, but Bhaskar, now a werewolf, saves her by killing the police. However, she is badly injured and falls off a cliff to her death. Bhaskar is heartbroken but takes up the role of protector of the forest. He decides to build roads around the forest while keeping the trees safe. Those who continue to plan the deforestation mysteriously die from animal attacks and the project comes to a halt.

In the mid-credits scene, Vicky and Bittu visit Jana, who is away from them to prepare for the UPSC exams. They need her help to find a ghost named Stree. Bhaskar as a werewolf appears and scares them away, indicating the possibility of more adventures in the future.
