Plot

As said, the film is a courtroom drama thriller. It has three girls Minal Arora played by Taapsee Pannu, Falak Ali Played by Kriti Kulhari and Andrea played by Andrea Tairang. They are working women and stay at a posh society in South Delhi. On the fateful night, while returning from a rock concert they are invited by Rajveer and others in a resort based in Surajkund in Faridabad district. The boys are drunk and they molest the girls and touch them appropriately and soon Minal is seen lodging a complaint for molestation against these boys. However, Rajveer using his influence allege them ladies that the girls are prostitutes and prove the same using his powerful connections, while alleges Minal that she tried to kill him. Deepak Sehgall played by Amitabh Bachchan is a lawyer who suffers from bipolar ailments takes up his case and film then moves inside the courtroom. So what happens next is an interesting thing to explore.

Review

You can certainly call this film to be very much relevant to such cases rampant in our Indian society and this could be another case somewhere found in the metropolitan city of our nation. The film from Anirudha Roy Chowdhury rightly addresses the hatred and prejudices, which are latches over the self-earning, educated and independently put the women in the Indian society. Considering Delhi to be the heart of rape has been glorified a lot in this film, which is indeed the need of the hour as not much have been done on this regard. The film also poses the pertinent question as to how women from North East communal feelings in the National Capital apart from raising the question that modern women working outside are certainly not prostitutes.

Performance

The character of Minal Arora is played by Taapsee Pannu simply comes with great efforts. She has perfectly emoted in every sequence she has played in the film especially the ones she has given in the courtrooms, which makes us to say that she has great potential to take her long away ahead. Kirti Kulhari playing the character called Falak Ali too has done a great job don’t forget to catch the scene where she is seen breaking down in the courtroom. She with her performance has been very much natural and comfortable in her act. However, Andrea Taraing had a small role to play though she has done a great job in this. Last but not the least, Big B is indeed a powerhouse performer and has given one of the best performance ever while playing a lawyer with a bipolar ailment. And yes don’t forget to catch Piyush Mishra; he is simply awesome playing the prosecution lawyer. In the bad boy role, Angad Bedi has simply nailed with his incredible and arrogant stare.

Direction, Music, editing and others

The director Aniruddha Roy Chaudhary can somehow remind you filmmakers like Sujoy Ghosh from Kahaani and Shoojit Sirchar for their excellent and realistic filmmaking skills. He has tried to make the first half interesting building up the mystery. With his good filmmaking skills, he has tried to make certain scenes very much robust and interesting making them very much close to reality. However certain scenes like the ones like Big B walking in an overly polluted city of Delhi is certainly not justified as it appears very much creepy and fails to contribute in any fashion. The songs are smartly being used at the backdrop of a series of events happening. The other technical elements like editing, screenplay and other things appear to be very much relevant that ended up increasing the entertainment value of movie.

Pink – The Last Word

The film Pink happens to be very much powerful and poignantly provocative. It addresses all the issues pertaining to women that the Indian society has for the modern day Indian women. Hence in terms of story, content and performance, the film has a number of things that entertain the audience the best.

Rating – 4/5
