Badla Movie Review : A Great Thriller.

March 08, 2019

Director Sujoy Ghosh’s Badla movie starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu got released today. This murder mystery is getting an amazing response from the audiences. Since the launch of the trailer, people were excited to watch Badla because the trailer was amazing and it made hype among the audiences for the movie. The film is a remake of hit The Invisible Guest (2016) Spanish thriller. No doubt the movie has come out exceptionally well and this spectacular thriller is getting thumbs up from the audiences.

Naina (Taapsee Pannu) is accused for the murder of Arjun (Tony Luke). Her lawyer Jimmy (Manav Kaul) hires the senior advocate Badal Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan) to help crack the case and defend Naina. But Naina’s confessions to Badal add a lot of twists and turns to the murder mystery.
The Jodi of Pink will definitely see another success with Badla. Both Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu has played their role to perfection. Even the performance of Amrita Singh and Manav Kaul are very impressive. Director Sujoy Ghosh comes up another excellent masterpiece after Kahaani. The cinematography is very good and the editing is sharp. Background score does complete justice with the story of the movie. Badla will make you wait till the end to get the mystery solved. Badla is an engaging movie which will tie you from the beginning to the end. Overall, the movie is must watch for all the thriller loving audiences.

A revenge story with a murder mystery at its core, the film follows a three-hour conversation between Badal Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan), the lawyer entrusted with defending murder accused Naina Sethi (Taapsee Pannu).

Sethi is a successful and astute businesswoman who is under house arrest pending the court case. Gupta comes with the reputation of having a hundred percent success rate with his cases. He’s sharp and unflappable, just like his client, who is adamant about her innocence.
The film runs at a crisp 120 minutes during which Naina recounts the events that lead up to the murder of her lover, Arjun (Tony Luke), in a hotel room. As the only other occupant of the room, Naina is the prime suspect.

As much as the conversation plays out like a poker game, it’s also a battle of wits and a test of reliability between Badal and Naina. Clinton Cerejo’s score, Avik Mukhopadhyay’s cinematography, Monisha Baldawa’s editing and Scottish locations coalesce as the guessing game unfolds. Will Naina beat the odds? Will Badal find a loophole? If not Naina, then who killed Arjun? Eventually it comes down to this – did you spot the sleight of hand?

Ghosh, who achieved success with a similar genre in Kahaani (2012), maintains control of the twists and turns. With the assistance of dialogue writer Raj Vasant, they work in a few Mahabharata references to present notions of revenge and forgiveness.

Bachchan is commanding as always but Pannu earns neither sympathy nor surprise, whereas Amrita Singh achieves both in her decisive role. If revenge is a dish best served cold, this one isn’t icy enough.

Peppered with moments of high tension and suspense, Badla is a must-watch even for people who are not very fond of the genre. The film features top-notch performances from Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu with pinpoint direction from director Sujoy Ghosh. Doing full justice to its genre, Badla keeps you on the edge of your seat from the outset. I am going with 3.5 stars.
