After the press screening, reviews of the movie have left us to watch it on the first day! The movie Pink starring Amitabh Bachchan,Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang is somehow the most awaited feminist film we are waiting for, we guess! Pink is all set to hit theaters on 16th September 2016.
The story is all about three girls living in Delhi whose lifestyle is a metaphor for the society, and running down to a politician (Angad Bedi) lends them to be the target of a false legal case. And then comes Amitabh Bachchan who steps in to help the girls in this fix!
No doubt the story seems to be interesting. The trailer of the movie directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury (directorial debut) and produced by Soojit Sircar has kept us at the edge of our seats. Soojit Sircar has given super hit films like
Sources say that it’s probably the first film to bring the concept of “consent” into public and highlighting it in the most beautiful and sensitive way.
These reviews from well-known people will make an urge in you to watch the first show of the movie:
Kunal Guha, in Mumbai Mirror, gave the film four stars, and wrote:
“Being a single woman in Delhi makes for fragile existence. Constantly scoped by the prying eyes of neighbors who deduce her character based on when she returns home and the guests she entertains, it is an unsettling world. This is the backdrop of Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s Pink, which effectively transfers the fears and frustrations of its characters onto the audience. The most pertinent point this film underlines is the feudal mindset of the milieu, amplified by the sense of male entitlement that eliminates consent.
Mayank Shekhar, in Mid-Day, offers four-stars, and says:
“…more significantly, the film, up until the closing credits, does not even visually describe the said incident. It grips you still with a gently piercing background score, moments of silence and dialogue, building up the tension, while the audience wonders what really could have happened one unfortunate night when three girls found themselves in a Surajkund resort with three guys. And one of the boys got seriously injured thereafter.”
BollywoodLife’s Anusha Iyengar also gave four-star rating:
“The courtroom scenes are cut-to-cut without any unnecessary scenes about interrogations and finding proof, or any songs for that matter. There is not one soul in the movie that disappoints(s) with their acting. The dialogues are to the point and witty… (But) Amitabh Bachchan steals the show in the second half.”
The film has already earned a lot of praise and has left the audience to crave for more. Check out the trailer if you missed it!
