So the trailer for Badla has dropped and it doesn’t look like we can wait till the 8th of March for the film to release. The premise looks intriguing and knowing who the cast and the director are, we have high hopes from Badla. The film has the famous Pink duo, who killed it the last time they were in court – Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu. Taapsee plays the accused and Amitabh Bachchan plays her lawyer. Badla has been helmed by Sujoy Ghosh, who has previously delivered masterpieces like Kahaani and Ahalya.
The trailer opens to Amitabh’s baritone voice coupled with sharp dialogues. We see that Taapsee’s character, married and with a child, has been in an extra-marital affair with Arjun and now someone is blackmailing her about it. The next few seconds show us Taapsee being subjected to a concussion and waking up to a guy dead in her bathroom. Taapsee’s character seems to be sinking in murder charges when Badal Gupta (apna Big B) comes in as her lawyer. Mr. Gupta, in a true blue lawyer style, tells her that whatever she tells him is his truth. And then the questions begin.
Badla doesn’t fool around as the intense trailer gives you a glimpse into a tight plot. We trust Sujoy Ghosh enough to expect a flawless film from him. Did we say we cannot wait? Because we cannot! Badla releases on the 8th of March so plan around it. Meanwhile, watch our interview with actress Taapsee Pannu here.
