Mr. Khan is this movie's best weapon. Playing a familiar character type, the world-weary detective, he gives a performance, full of small, sly details, that doesn't seem familiar at all.
[Talvar] is bound to stir up controversy on its home turf with its dramatically potent depiction of police ineptitude, media excess, bureaucratic infighting and a possible miscarriage of justice.
Talvar makes for gripping, infuriating, and at times illuminating viewing
Guilty is an epic look at two gruesome killings, made worse by a series of wild miscarriages of justice.
For all its positives, Talvar fails to keep that distance, and therefore compromises its ability to be an impartial, unbiased chronicle of what is India's most sensational murder case.
This docudrama-style thriller hits a raw nerve with a taut script by Vishal Bhardwaj that even-handedly covers the various aspects of the investigation and offers many different versions of the truth.
The strength of Talvar lies in the meticulously measured script by Vishal Bhardwaj.
One of the bleakest whodunnits to grace our screens for some time, for all its wit and intermittent playfulness, this slice of Noida noir is full of compromised characters.
A tense, taut and thrilling piece of cinema.
The film has a Rashomon like narrative, putting different viewpoints and storylines in place and whetting your appetite with each reveal.
A tightly written narrative and mostly rational view of the investigations ensure Talvar is an edge-of-the-seat, engaging thriller that seeks to shock its audience.
What also works wonderfully is the film's sense of the place. Noida -- be it the residential colony, the flat or the cop station -- feels utterly real.
Had high expectations, but as it happens more often than not, left me disappointed. Maybe due to enough knowledge about the case (not that of the police staff involved or their family) from which the movie is inspired. While it's a fictionalized version of real crime, it doesn't manipulate the significant facts of the case as far as the evidence and proof are concerned. Well, more than less. Seems like Tabu's character was created to show the emotional side of Irrfan's character and maybe some light moments. But it doesn't help the cause and it'd have been better off without it. While the performances are commendable, the portrayal of the police personnel is quite typical (not to be mistaken for unreal).
One time watch if you don't know about the Noida double murder case details already. A seemingly open and shut case (more so if you aren't interested to go into the details of the case & pass judgments based on unscrupulous assumptions) that's a hard one to crack. Much, if not full credit goes to the police force that mishandled the case by not following the essential procedures in its initial stage. (Letting the crime scene to be compromised wasn't their only fault.) Beyond reasonable doubt for that matter.
