In the bank robbery scene you can notice Lagaan movie poster besides bank shutter. Lagaan released on 15 June 2001. So, the bank robbery takes place around that period. See more »
Just before interval, when Harman is shown entering a hotel, the receptionist tells him, "Good Morning sir, it's on third floor". He enters the lift when Raghav also joins him. Ideally, Harman should go to third floor, but since the background is visible from the lift, it can easily be seen that he exits the lift much above the 3rd floor. See more »

I've loved Sriram Raghavan's films. They're a bit different from the rest that Bolloywood turns out year on year. And he knows how to make a good thriller and keep his fans like me edge of their seats.
Badlapur is the story of Raghu (Varun Dhawan) who is simmering in revenge after his wife and son are killed in a bank robbery all gone wrong. Of the two robbers, Liak (Nawazuddin) is caught and arrested and sentenced for 20 years. He claims that he did not kill the women and child, it was his partner who did. Raghu waits for the next 20 years to get is revenge.
On the face, Badlapur is a revenge story. But see inside and its a tale of two lonely men trying to seek comfort and solace. And in the 15 years, they become desperate. One has time while the other hasn't.
As the movie progressed, it did manage to pop up a few questions - about the concept of revenge, redemption and right or wrong?
And these questions came thanks to the brilliant performance of Nawauddin. Nawaz is at the moment India's best actor and he just leaves his mark. U feel anger and pity while also laugh at his stupidity.
Varun is good and uses his eyes well but no where close to Nawaz. The rest of the cast is very good in their small roles especially Huma Qureshi, Prathima Qazmi and Radhika Apte.
The movie does have a few pits and you might question the roles played by the women.
However, this is a brilliant psychological thriller and a must watch for all thriller fans.
