I am still confused. Should I give a positive review or a negative review.
What was it about this movie that gave it the 4 star rating in various reviews. I just don’t understand why the story felt so complicated but without any closure. The script writer builds up many a climaxes but fails to deliver them. The directions feels pretty good, but then it must have been quite a task to get thing together.
The silver lining in the cloud is Nawazuddin Siddiquie.
And now I understand what’s bothering me. The Protagonist for this movie may mistakenly be considered as Varun Dhawan. Nay not so. For me, its Nawazuddin. The story revolves around him, or should have actually been that way but is potrayed otherwise.
Then there is a sad waste of Vinay Pathak, who really wasn’t offered any role at all. The director would as well have asked him to appear without speaking. A waste of talent.
Huma Qureshi plays her role they way she should. There’s nothing much for Yami Gautam though.
But its Nawazuddin that shines. It reminds me of the film Talaash. The character is ditto and played to perfection. Such roles are custom made for him it seems.
Varun needs to learn how to speak convincingly on screen. He’s just not there yet. That’s why he appears last in this review
And also to remind. If you live in Badlapur, don’t get your hopes up to create a connection between the film and your town. There is none.
And then there’s this police officer who keeps on appearing without being important. What a shamble. It feels like the story was a rough draft, finalised in haste under the fear of plagiarism.
Full marks to Nawaz.
My Rating 3/5. All go to Nawaz
