Revenge is the purest form of emotion !!
27 August 2020 | by madhukar30See all my reviews

The story of Ajji is an average classic revenge drama, but with some brilliant & authentic elements of film making within it. The movie touches on the delicate subject of child rape and that too from a under privileged family. What makes Ajji to work in its favour is its ability to transfer the pain and suffering of the protagonist into the minds of the audiences. Though the entire premise is heavily cliched, and utterly unbelievable at times, its ability to arose certain curiosity in audiences mind drives the awe factor in Ajji.

Aided with some brilliant camerawork, which sets a dark tone to the movie, Ajji transcends us to a place, where only a few of us would venture. Director Devashish Makhija work is top class to get the horrors of the story into our head, his portrayal of the aftermath of the child rape and the police visit to the victim's home is exceptionally accurate. Screenplay could have been a little better and more believable. Top class acting by Abishek Banerjee as the antagonist will sent shivers down our spine. Yes such people do exist. Ably supported by Smitha Tambe, most of the supporting cast's acting is good. Editing could have been a little better considering the 105 minute length of the movie.

I completely agree that, Ajji has its set of flaws, especially the revenge part and the protagonist's ability to pull of such a thing. Taking law onto ourselves maybe right for people like you and me but what about the poor and the helpless? Can they afford such privileges? When they can hardly afford 3 square meals. This movie is made for audiences who don't have those luxuries in the corrupt world of ours. Though disturbing in many places, Ajji is a must watch for movie buffs to understand certain emotions & reactions in acting.
