Critic Reviews for Badlapur
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.
