Badla is about Naina – a married entrepreneur – who is accused of the murder of her lover. How she and her lawyer try to prove she is innocent is what the film is about.
The film stars Taapsee Pannu as Naina and Amitabh Bachchan as advocate Badal Gupta. The actors are at the top of their game and will make you believe everything they say. Sujoy Ghosh’s direction is on point.
Amrita Singh has an impactful role but not enough screen time. Manav Kaul too suffers the same. The narrative is fast-paced and you may miss out in details when scenes change. Cinematography could be better.
We give Badla 2 buzzing bees.
