“Badlapur” is a story of a family man who sets  out to take revenge after being wronged. Raghu (Varun Dhawan)is a happy content man who has a beautiful wife Mishti (Yami Gautam), his college girlfriend and a son Robin. Their  fairytale life is devastated when both his wife and son are killed in a bank robbery.

After one of the robbery, Layak(Nawazuddin Siddiqui), mastermind of the two robbers is nabbed  by the police. Raghu tries to avenge his family loss by forcefully sleeping with Layak’s prostitute girlfriend Jhumli (Huma Qureshi), but attains nothing. Even as 15 years pass by, Raghu is unable to forgive. Layak, broken and despaired from many failed attempts to escape jail, is now ill. Due to his medical condition, Layak gets bail and comes out of the jail 15 years later. Here begins a slow, elaborate, visually shocking yet tantalizing way to seek revenge which is taken by Raghu.

“Badlapur”  is not everyone’s cup of coffee. If  your interest is some bloody action movie, then it’s your type. Sriram Raghavan’s “Badlapur” is simple yet engaging. The film does rely on scaring you with bloody images, but the straight forward dialogues and rant image of Raghu’s character will be a glue factor till the end of the movie. Sriram Raghavan has  truly captured the dark nature of this film.

Certain scenes seemed unnecessary, such as brief conversation between Huma and Varun  towards the end is a drag. Sriram’s this movie does not go to the level of “EK Hasina Thi”, which was the true definition of a revenge story. “Badlapur” is mediocre.

Performance :

Varun is seen in a complete different avatar. His astonishing transformation from a lover boy in Student of the Year to a revenge thirsty man in “Badlapur” has shocked one and all. With this look, “Badlapur” is expected to be a game changer for the young lad.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the greatest discovery of the Bollywood. Inspite of being the villain, he will make you laugh in this film. Yami Gautam and Huma Qureshi have limited roles in the film. Both of them do a average job and leave nothing remarkable in the film.

Final Word

Badlapur is a ticket worth movie. If you are the kind who enjoys watching twisted, psychologically testing experiment, then this is a must watch. The film’s best element Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui own this film right from the start.

  • Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Movie Review
    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Movie Review

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha starts on a slow note as it takes enough time to reveal about the behavior of the characters. The first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been packed with hilarious entertainment which come along with the plot. Some of the songs have been forcefully injected into the plot however some of them have been shot well. On the whole, the first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha looks decent with packed entertainment. The second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha too has been interesting and reveals a strong social message. Some of the episodes have been dragged too much and the songs are huge barriers for the film. The film has many interesting episodes which strike hard about the problems faced by women across many villages of the country. On the whole the second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been ok which has been balanced with good and bad episodes throughout.


  • Jab Harry Met Sejal Movie Review
    Jab Harry Met Sejal Movie Review

    Jab Harry Met Sejal has many layers and some of them have been well narrated. The entire first half has been passable but it is the slow plot and some unwanted episodes that kill the film’s flavour completely. The songs look decent and they have been shot well. The quirky comedy and the narration makes the first half of Jab Harry Met Sejal passable. The second half of the movie looks dragged and some of the episodes have been hurried which are quite crucial. Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma have been extremely impressive in their roles. The locations and the cinematography are the major highlights of the second half. The climax has been shot well and impresses the audience. On the whole, the second half of Jab Harry Met Sejal disappoints.


  • Mubarakan Movie Review
    Mubarakan Movie Review

    Mubarakan is completely based on comedy and is a hilarious laugh riot right from the first frame. The story has been framed well and the songs have been placed and shot well. Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor carried the film well and they are the major highlights of the movie. Their comic timing has been simply superb and the entire first half has been filled with loads of entertainment.The second half of Mubarakan too has been laced with enough entertainment however the film dips down at times. Some of the episodes look dragged and some of them have been hurried. The entire second half looks predictable and the climax has been simple, rushed. On the whole the entire second half has been ok.


  • Indu Sarkar Movie Review
    Indu Sarkar Movie Review

    Indu Sarkar has many interesting and realistic episodes and the film showcases the struggle of a woman. Each and every character has been well written and well presented. With an interesting twist, the first half convinces the audience and Madhur Bhandarkar works hard not to miss his mark. The dialouges are the major assets of the film. The second half of Indu Sarkar has been completely focussed on the struggle and Indu Sarkar may not appeal to all the sections of audience. However the gripping narration and the power packed performances lead the film completely. The pre-climax episodes heat up the film and the climax has been well presented. On the whole, Indu Sarkar has been decent but it may not appeal to all the sections of audience.


  • Munna Michael Movie Review
    Munna Michael Movie Review

    Munna Micheal starts on an interesting note however the film loses the grip. Most of the episodes look fake and the characters have not been written well. The songs and the performances by the lead actors have been impressive and lot of time has been wasted for the major plot to be unveiled. There is no strong purpose, but Munna shifts his base to Delhi suddenly. On the whole the first half of Munna Micheal has been below the average line and makes no impact.The second half of Munna Micheal has been completely half baked and it makes no sense. The performances by the lead actors has been completely impressive but the rest of the movie is a huge misfire. The songs have been shot well and Niddhi has been presented in a glamorous way. The second half looks confused and clumsy. The climax looks like everyone in the film along with the audience have been lost. On the whole, Munna Micheal is a complete misfire in all the available ways.
