Good movie in a time where Bollywood movies are like a blinking Tubelight
8 July 2017 | by amit1717See all my reviews

A very stimulating movie which includes an used plot and borrows certain elements from older and more recent movies like 'Pink' and 'Jazbaa', but still manages to make an impact.

Another movie which focuses on how the women in our country are really unsafe, and the state of law in the country where people can really get away with such serious crimes. Though the movie tends to focus more on the revenge than the trial, unlike 'Pink' whose chief focus was on the trial. The first half is moving and can even be slightly disturbing, but the second half loses grip and becomes slightly obvious.

In terms of performance, all the actors are pretty impressive. Sridevi and Nawazuddin make an impact. Sajal ali, as the daughter and the rape victim, was believable. Akshaye khanna, as the cop, was gritty and maybe he should have received more screen time. Adnan siddiqui as the dad wasn't up to the mark and perhaps the writers didn't do enough justice to his character.

The downside of the movie is that there are no twists and turns and the plot is pretty straightforward, and sometimes becomes a bit too predictable, which does not do justice to its 'thriller' tag.

Overall rating : 7/10.
