‘Pink’ movie review: Amitabh Bachchan shines all the way as always

Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang, Angad Bedi

Director: Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury

‘Pink’ is a contemporary youth-centric film it brings forth the message that when a woman says no, she means no. The movie deals with the twisted man’s world that every woman deals with in present times. It is about parents, brother’s and husbands who are worried about their loved one’s safety.

The Aniruddha Roy Choudhury directorial is a story about three working women, Minal (Taapsee Pannu), Falak (Kirti Kulhari) and Andrea (Andrea Tairang) are flatmates in Delhi and good friends. An untoward incident one night at a resort in Surajkund, involving some boys, among whom is Rajveer (Angad Bedi), who comes from a politically well-connected family, proves to be life changing for the trio.

Soon the movie enters the court with some hard hitting scenes where ace lawyer Deepak Sehgall(Amitabh Bachchan) represents them in a bid to get them justice.

It is an Amitabh Bachchan film all the way. The actor has taken a dig at society in the film with potent dialogues. Amitabh Bachchan as Deepak Sehgall, the aged defence lawyer has given a restrained but powerful performance. All the actors have given outstanding performances, if Taapsee Pannu has performed outstandingly, her anxiety, frustrations and angst, against society and the system and its hypocrisy, are all palpable. Big B drives home his point with such force that his complete dominance silences everyone. Kirti Kulhari as Falak Ali, is equally a powerhouse as a performer.

What makes the movie so good is that everyone sitting in the audience can associate themselves with at least one of the characters of the movie. ‘Pink’ keeps us gripped as the intricacies of the case unfold like a thriller.

A must watch this weekend we say.
