Enters Amitabh Bachchan (Deepak Sehgal), the mysterious neighbor who offers to help the girls by representing them in court. He is a renowned lawyer who has retired from work due to his medical condition, but comes back to fight the girls’s case.
The story, screenplay and performances are so real and that’s what makes this film a classic. Every young urban women in the country can relate to them and empathize with the plight of the girls. The movie reflects a mirror on the society’s mindset and prejudices towards women. Taapsee Pannu emerges as the real star of the film. She is the bravest of the three girls and we see how the incident crumbles her determination and self resolve. We can imagine how it must feel for so many women in the country who are fighting molestation or rape cases. How women empowerment takes two steps back with every such incident.
The film takes a dig on various social prejudices present in the society and puts light on the issue of consent. The movie is a slap in face for everyone who says ‘she asked for it.’ It is an important film and if you are going to watch one movie this year, make it PINK!
