Badla Movie review by Bombay Talkies

By Bombay Talkies 01 09, 2020 | 06:55 PM
Badla

BADLA is an official remake of THE INVISIBLE GUEST,  a critically acclaimed Spanish film released in 2017.

The film depicts defence attorney Badal Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan) who hasn't lost a criminal case on his career spanning 40 years meeting  a new client Naina Sethi (Taapsee Pannu), who is accused of killing her lover, Tony Luke. He begins asking her pertinent questions, exposing a web of lies and half-truths. It isn't clear what the actual truth is, each new revelation making the tale more dark and complex. Whether Naina will get justice and whether Badal will be able to rescue truth from the quicksand of deceit forms the crux of the film. Set in the exotic locales of Glasgow, Scotland, it's woods, lakes become a minor character in the film and are instrumental in taking the story forward. Cinematographer Avik Mukhopadhyay has brought alive the beauty of the place with his deft camera work. A large portion is shot in an apartment as well and the inside shots too are well executed. The film's story takes place almost in real time, what with Amitabh Bachchan grilling Taapsee for close to three hours.

Performancewise, Amitabh Bachchan is simply outstanding. Taapsee Pannu is also too good. Editing by Monisha R Baldawa is crisp.

Amrita Singh is the surprise packet and her performance is watch a watch after a brief hiatus.

The film was one of the sleeper hits of 2019.
