The crime thriller is brilliantly written and every scene from the film has been well penned and executed. The film has a bunch of twists and the biggest challenge is revealing them out at the right time. Sujoy Ghosh is highly successful and narrates the entire film with utmost perfection. The first half of Badla is written and presented top notch.
The second half of Badla too continues to win the hearts of the audience. The film has enough flaws in the second half and some of the moments are predictable. Still, Badla stands tall and will end up as one of the best films in the recent times. The technical aspects have been well used and they will help the film reach to the next level. Though the film is adapted from the Spanish film The Invisible Guest.
Amitabh Bachchan adds one more feather to his cap with his flawless and outstanding performance in the film. He fits well in the role of Badal Gupta. Taapsee who has been surprising the audience with the choice of films wins the hearts of the audience once again with her stupendous performance as Naina. She looks natural in the assignment. Amrita Singh gets a meaty role and she has done her role well. Tony Luke and Manav Kaul have been supportive. All the other actors will not be remembered after the film.
Badla is adopted from the Spanish film The Invisible Guest. The screenplay and the dialogues have been penned suiting the Indian audience with a desi touch. Sujoy Ghosh proves that he is a master storyteller when it comes to mysteries. The cinematography work and the background takes the lead in the narration and the production values make the film look lavish and perfect enough.
Badla Final Word
Badla keeps you hooked right from the first to the last frame and should be a must watch. The performances and direction stand out.
