Pink (2016) Review
Genre- Social, Thriller
Director- Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury
Starcast- Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tairang & Angad Bedi.
Association of megastar Amitabh Bachchan with any movie, raises the expectations of audience. Big B has once again proved his stellar skills in Shoojit Sircar’s social thriller Pink. Along with an intense story, Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s directorial Pink delivers brilliant performances and a strong social message to our society, that the lifestyle of a woman doesn’t define her character.
After Anurag Kashyap’s Udta Punjab, this is another worthy option in theaters for audience which is based on very serious issue of present time. But this has more impactful and kosher script without any commercial ingredient. Being social thriller, it doesn’t offer masala entertainment but still it holds you from beginning to an end. Because of gripping courtroom sequences, it keeps your head still in one direction.
Amitabh Bachchan is undoubtedly the soul of Pink, but other actors have also performed brilliantly. Taapsee Pannu (Minal), Kirti Kulhari (Falak) & Andrea Tairang (Andrea) who are playing as working women, have justified their characters very sincerely and perfectly. Angad Bedi (Rajveer) also played his character (of a guy from politically well-connected family) very well.
At technical aspects also Pink stands strong, its direction, screenplay, editing etc. all are above the satisfaction level. Music of the movie is an average and doesn’t strum the right string, but still it truly deserves your time. You can enjoy it with your friends and family.
