Irada and Udta Punjab expose serious health problems in Punjab
4 May 2017 | by inforazaSee all my reviews

Irada is a crisp eco-thriller that deals with a real issue - the corrupt nexus between politicians and a factory which leads to ground water contamination causing cancer in people.

This is a real issue that is precisely what is happening in Punjab, with Bhatinda the worst-hit. This cancer can even lead to DNA mutations.

Note: Irada exposes the cancer problem while Udta Punjab exposes the drugs issue, both in Punjab.

Although Irada is a sincerely made film, it could've been handled and presented in a much better manner.


1 - The movie is presented in a "crispy" manner with little or no diversions.

2 - Great acting by the likes of Nasserudin Shah, Arshad Warsi and Divya Dutta.

3 - Background music and Cinematography is good. I really liked the opening sequence of the film with the thrilling music.


1 - A few things are shown as if the Director Arpaana Singh wants us to read her mind, instead of showing them clearly.

In two scenes, something written in letters are shown. But the scenes does not last long enough for us to read the contents. It'd have been smarter had the characters read out the important content for the audience to hear.

No mention of the content of the book released by Parabjeet Walia (Nasseruddin Shah).

There is some talk of a secret chemical formula which does not make sense.

2 - The interaction between Arshad (as the NIA officer) and Sagarika (the journalist) is very odd and irritating. It is as if they both know each other and Arshad talks and reacts in a casual and filmsy manner. In one scene he is playing with a table tennis ball while Sagarika is explaining something. Totally irritating! 3 - So why did Arshad Warsi enact the fake murder? For what purpose? It seems only the Director knows it.

4 - A boring love song between Maya (Sagarika Ghatge) & Anirudh (Nikhil Pandey) whom we do not known enough to care about. When the characters do not have any depth such songs make no sense.
