Ghosh builds a solid case against the assumption of innocence that we often grant women accused of heinous crimes. If only Badla lived up to its intent.
Nothing is what it seems and there are many turns, but the film isn't as clever as it thinks it is.
Badla, an official remake of a Spanish murder mystery, pulls off a mostly-gripping whodunit, something Bollywood rarely manages.
Badla is a mystery thriller that is being sold as a tense watch, but in all honesty, the suspense is tepid.
The gender swap allows for a meaty role for Amrita Singh, who deftly plays a key character, and her presence, along with that of Tony Luke, work strongly in the movie's favour and helps it along its pretzel-shaped journey.
While the climax doesn't knock you off your feet, you will still enjoy the blow-by-blow account of how things escalated to a murder and a cover-up.
Badla remains forcibly consistent to this oeuvre of maternal rage. Only, it focuses on the other side of the kahaani, which is why you can see the strings and the puppeteers running the show.
In short, Badla is a true-blue mystery thriller.
Amitabh Bachchan has been in the movies for fifty years now, and whatever he says, we're listening.
The big reveal gets painfully crummy, its central contrivance utterly implausible. In fact, the entire chain of events is hard to believe in and leaves you asking questions aplenty.
Even the seasoned genre faithfuls will agree that Badla offers a creative and thrilling end to a captivating mystery.
