Badlapur - Preview

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

A well-made, well-performed revenge drama that makes you question your definitions of right and wrong, even if the story is unconvincing.

For every Johnny Gaddar a director can be forgive at least a couple of Agent Vinods. And Badlapur leans more toward the former than the latter, which is worth looking forward to in itself. And there is always Ek Hasina Thi to keep the balance tipping on the right side.

Moreover, whenever newer talent gets a chance to break the mould and try different genres it makes the film even more intriguing. Varun Dhawan is looking good in an intense and even borderline quirky avatar. It is always a pleasure to watch Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Huma Qureshi on screen. Yami Gautam has her own charm too. We'll be seeing Vinay Pathak after a long time too.

The one thing that makes me a little skeptical is the revenge theme. It has been done to death and is very difficult to narrate in a way that we haven't seen before. The gore and shock factor seem to have been taken care of though. I love it when films that you look forward to have something on the flip side too.

Either way, a thriller a week is always welcome. Exciting times ahead!
