- Movie Name:Badla
- Critics Rating: 3 / 5
- Release Date: March 8, 2019
- Director: Sujoy Ghosh
- Genre: Thriller
Officially adapted by Spanish film Contratiempo (The Invisible Guest), Badla is a murder mystery hailed by filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh who is known to direct Indian thrillers like Kahani and Kahani 2 with perfection. This two-hour cinematic feature stars fan-favourite Bollywood actors Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in significant roles. The film moves at a good pace in the first half building the plot gradually. The second half unfolds the layers. Badla is an enthralling experience. The dialogue-driven scripts generate curiosity and Badla is a perfect example of it. Here's my take on Badla:
Badla | Storyline
A young married businesswoman, played by Taapsee Pannu finds herself in a locked hotel room next to the body of her dead lover. Hoping to find answers, she hires a prestigious lawyer to help her solve the mystery of what really happened.
Badla | Star Performances
Versatile actors including Taapsee Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan tried their best to recreate their magic with Badla after Pink. Taapsee is reduced to a handful of expressions. However, Amitabh tries hard to keep the boat sailing with his gravitas. Also, actress Amrita Singh is surely Sujoy's surprise package in Badla.
Badla | Aesthetics
Dialogues: Dialogues for the film have been written by Sujoy Ghosh and Raj Vasant. Badla kind of thrillers which puts light on the conversations between a suspect and a lawyer should be heavy on dialogues to engage an audience. The film surely bags an award for excellence in dialogues.
Direction: Going by the nature of the film, Sujoy Ghosh did paramountcy job. Sujoy who has done films like Kahani, Kahani 2, Teen, and Jhankar Beats added another supreme feather in his hat with Badla.
Badla | Verdict
The film serves you with a cherry on the top in its climactic scene. Badla will certainly entertain all the cinephiles who eagerly wait for whodunnit kind of thrillers. Go and watch the film with your friends and family to watch another jaw-dropping performance by Amitabh Bachchan!
