Pink Movie Review: This Amitabh Bachchan special movie is all about Minal (Taapsee Pannu), Falak (Kirti Kulhari) and Andrea (Andrea Tairang) who live together in Delhi and are trying hard to make their careers take off. It is a tough life, but they are willing to work hard and are actually enjoying the experience. It is a picture almost every young professional woman in India will identify with.

Because of the special efforts of all concerned, especially Amitabh Bachchan, this remains a tightly knit plot that enchants and captivates the audience in equal measure. (Image: IE)

Pink Movie Review: Amitabh Bachchan is back and he returns in an avatar where he gets the chance to put his baritone on display in the best possible way – via this court-room drama. The theme is contemporary, the actors fresh and young and puttting it all in perpspective is none other than Bachchan who essays another unforgettable role against a theme that involves a politician’s nephew who looks to sexually assault a girl and is thwarted. Revenge brings the entire episode to court, where Bachchan plays a stellar role in striking blow after blow for justice and women’s empowerment and in the process lays bare the double-standards Indian society has long allowed to germinate, which has caused so much harm to Indian womanhood.

No guesses allowed, Bachchan runs away with the accolades even as the girls themselves put in special efforts to ensure this movie becomes one of the highlights of the year. The message sent out is strong and the delivery by the actors is moving. The message Bachchan and co are sending is that in today’s day and age, young women are intelligent enough to decide what they want and when strangers run into them, they should no construe a smile as a licence to molest or worse. The world must leave them alone to chart their own path to their own fates.

The film is presented in a simple manner in a court-room where most of the action happens after the initial drama is over. The dialogues are not just powerful, they are also moving and the picturisation is sensitive.

It takes one night of madness to destroy all semblance of normality in their lives and turn them into a nightmare. They are at the Surajkund resort, and run into a boys gang led by Rajveer (Angad Bedi), a spoilt, politically well-connected brat, who turns their lives upside down. When all seems lost for the girls, who themselves stand accused of various criminal cases, riding to the rescue is none other than veteran defence lawyer Deepak Saigal (Bachchan), who keeps the flag of justice flying and in the process reminds everyone about women and where their position in the world is. And yes, that the male doominated order needs to be changed to ensure everything turns right in the world.
