Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Amrita Singh, Tony Luke, Manav Kaul
Run Time: 118 minutes
Badla revolves around the life of Naina – a married entrepreneur – who finds herself as the accused in the murder of her lover. Stating that she is innocent, she hires ace lawyer Badal Gupta to fight her case. But is everything as it seems? Well, you need to watch the film to know.
The official adaptation of the 2017 Spanish movie Contratiempo, the film will keep you wondering what will happen next. Amitabh Bachchan as advocate Gupta and Taapsee Pannu as the accused make you believe they are really their characters. Sujoy Ghosh’s direction is on point.
Amrita Singh has an impactful role and could have been given more time on screen. Manav Kaul has a very small role. The narrative is good but at times you may miss out when the scene or situation changes. The film’s cinematography could have been better.
Badla may not be everyone’s cup of tea as the storytelling method is very different from what cinema-goers are used to.
We give Badla 2 stars with a kink.
