After treating the audience with unforgettable performances in the award-winning social-thriller Pink, Taapsee Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan are back with Badla. Interestingly, Amitabh Bachchan will appear as a lawyer in this thriller-drama as well.
The plot of Badla revolves around a mysterious death and its implications. Taapsee Pannu appears as a young entrepreneur who finds herself locked in a hotel room along with the corpse of her lover. Desperate to solve the mystery, she turns to a veteran lawyer. As the duo attempts to find out the truth, shocking revelations give a new turn to the story.
What The Badla Trailer Reveals
The intense trailer manages to capture your attention right from the first scene. Apart from the surprising new details about Pannu’s character, the trailer also highlights the sharp instincts of Bachchan’s Badal Gupta. We also get a series of glimpses into the events that led to the mysterious death that is central to the story. In addition to that, a string of questions make us wonder if the protagonist knows more than she is letting on!
On one hand, there is the powerful interrogative stance of the lawyer and on the other, the protagonist’s unconvincing demeanor. While she keeps insisting that someone was blackmailing her for money, the crime scene tells a different story. Not only are her hands covered in blood, her bundles of cash are left sprawling on the floor. This stirs up more restlessness while making the trailer more intriguing at the same time.
The movie is a Sujoy Ghosh directorial and a joint collaboration between Red Chillies Entertainment and Azure Entertainment. In the past, Ghosh has given us gripping thrillers like Kahaani and the much appreciated short film Ahalya. Considering his expertise with the genre, we can look forward to a promising storytelling all over again.
