Badlapur is an unswerving thriller!
20 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

After giving a lavished flick with dollops of visual sophistication and a meandering screenplay (refer to: Agent Vinod), Sriram Raghavan has made a grand comeback with Badlapur. Sriram Raghavan's finesse in handling noir drama is unmatchable in Bollywood. Be it Ek Hasina Thi or Johnny Gaddaar, Raghavan has always proved his mettle in this genre.

His movies unfold with a stark alacrity which keeps the audience glued to the screen. Badlapur is a gritty, realistic and gripping drama. This thriller develops at a taut pace, starting as a light- hearted love story and later gradually growing in suspense with its shocking proceedings. The director knows his job well and lets the audience simmer in anticipation as he slowly cooks a meaty plot.

Varun Dhawan is very impressive in a completely different role. This is one of his most restrained acts, and his serious character comes as a pleasant surprise after all the comic, lighthearted and womanising characters he has played before. He is phenomenal in this role, getting everything about his character absolutely spot on, whether it's his expressions, his body language or his emotional outbursts.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui - you can't take your eyes off him. This man is simply too good an actor. Sly and manipulative, his persona exudes pure evil, without even the stereotype evil laugh. His eyes strike a fear that resonates deep in your soul even hours after the movie is over, Siddiqui is the character you keep thinking of.

Yami Gautam doesn't get enough scope to perform. Ashiwini Kalsekar is adequate in a not so meaty role. Divya Dutta does her job well. Radhika Apte is superb and sensational as a wife.

Out of the female lot it is Huma Qureshi who stands out as a call- girl in a brief role. I think she bought a touching sensitivity to the character. There was a lot of depth in her performance. The moment when she ignores eye-contact with a customer she doesn't like while dancing for him is mind-boggling. Her eyes have so much to say to the audience. She exudes an inimitable charisma on the screen leaving all and sundry spellbound. Kudos!

The film has a taut and succinct screenplay. The editing is crisp but after the thrilling first half the second half looks a bit drag specially towards the end. The direction by Sriram Raghavan is impeccable. The movie is technically brilliant. The cinematography is brilliant and the camera effects at places really make a sound impact. Music is soothing to the ears with melodious songs like Jee Karda and Jeena Jeena.

You would want to stand up and applaud when the end credits roll, for this will be easily one of the finest films you have seen in recent times. Looking at the kind of cinema that's being churned out these days, you'll have to wait probably really long to watch a film of this stature. So, don't wait. Don't miss this one. For this really deserves to be applauded.
