Pink starring Amitabh Bachchan,Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang has been getting rave reviews from the people within the industry. But does the film live onto the pre-release noise? Find out:
The story of Pink is essentially how an ageing lawyer takes up a case to fight for the rights of three independent girls in Delhi. The film is essentially about the feudal mentality of men in India. Via Pink, the entire team tries to destruct several stereotypes that exist in our society.
The film is based on a subject that is relevant and the narration is rather hard-hitting. As the end credit roles, the film manages to evoke various thoughts in our mind. The background score goes down well with the narration and the one and only song is placed well.
The only flaw with the film is the run-time. The film could have been around 15 minutes shorter as the director takes a little too long to establish the entire premise. The dialogues as well as cinematography are real and just adds on to the ambience created by the director.
Amitabh Bachchan underplays himself in the first half however once he explodes in the court sequences, there is no stopping him. Taapsee Pannu slips into the character with ease and delivers what can be called her best till date. Kirti Kulhari is stellar through-out the film however one sequence which stands out is her emotional out-burst in the second half. Andrea Tariang makes a promising debut and her character too breaks several stereotypes about the perception towards people from North-East.
To Sum Up, Pink is much more than a film and gives out a message that each and every person should execute in real life. The film rides on commendable performances and hard-hitting as well as gripping story-line.
