This is no mindless gore-fest, as the director and actors do a good job of drawing you into their heads - no matter how warped or twisted.
Badlapur is among the finest Indian thrillers I've seen over the last year, and Raghavan's best film in many years.
Raghavan takes one of the most worn-in genres in Bollywood and makes it fresh. Raghavan questions the nature of revenge, he questions whether the revenge justifies the crime, and whether our ideas of good and evil might need a rehaul.
Raghu is as solid as Siddiqui's Laiq is fluid. Laiq is the movie's gem in the rough, an optimist and a survivor whose final act of defiance against his unending quest to escape poverty is a masterstroke of writing and performance.
Badlapur will leave viewers feeling all charged up and perhaps even deeply conflicted about the characters they just encountered on the screen.
Revenge is a dish best served cold, they say. Badlapur, however, is anything but cold -- with powerful performances from both leading men, who set the screen ablaze.
Nawaz singlehandedly is responsible for making this film fresh, funny, quirky and sublime.
Badlapur, maverick Sriram Raghavan's fourth desi-noir addition to his filmography, is a timely reminder that there is magic left in our movies. The magic can be dark, gloomy and subversive, but the spell can't be ignored.
What works best here is the film's unpredictability.
Whether it is crying over the sudden deaths or romancing invisible Yami or the cold-blooded murders, [Varun Dhawan's] expressions never fail to scare the audience.
Not twisted enough.
