Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s Pink is an eye opener of sorts in today’s society where many preconceived notions about how women are looked upon as, exist.

The film primarily evolves around three characters, Minal, Falak and Andrea played by Taapse Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang, respectively.

The movie tracks the journey of the trio and a dirty situation which culminates in them being victimised by power and politics. The movie is perhaps a reflection of the society and the upbringing of a huge population who still look down at women with preconceived notions.

The story is set in Delhi where Minal, Falak and Andrea happily stay together in a rented apartment. They lead a normal life until one day a party they attend goes horribly wrong and turns out to be the biggest mistake of their life.

But worry not as Deepak Sehgal, a lawyer by profession played by Amitabh Bachchan assures them of rightful justice. But first let’s get this very clear. If you thought you have seen it all from Amitabh Bachchan, think again.

He pumps in so much life into the film that it is his performance that steals the show. His screen presence, his personality, the way he projects his character, his facial expressions are top notch. Turning your eye anywhere else is a crime when he is on screen.

Not undermining the efforts of other talent who make the film, as a whole, a very gratifying watch. Taapsee has graduated to an extraordinary actress managing to hold the viewer’s attention despite having Mr Bachchan in the same frame. Ditto for Falak and Andrea who deliver a power packed performance in crucial scenes of the film.

The real drama unfolds in the second half which mainly unveils in the court room. Piyush Mishra, who plays a lawyer, defending Rajveer ( Angad Bedi) and his group of friends, looked like he was just out of his role of the story teller from Tamasha.

His performance wasn’t a let down but his mannerism was distracting. Dhritiman Chatterjee as a judge is very convincing and plays his part to perfection. Of the rest of the cast, the female Haryanvi cop in particular, was excellent. Kudos to writer Ritesh Shah for maintaining such sensitivity while writing the screenplay of the film.

Watching this film should definitely be on your to-do list for the weekend.
