‘Badla’ Trailer Review: Is the Amitabh Bachchan and Tapsee Pannu Starrer Worth The Hype?
Amitabh Bachchan and Tapsee Pannu return to the screen as the victim-lawyer dynamic in this mystery thriller
Who doesn’t love a good mystery thriller? As long as it’s got enough intrigue and it’s shot well, the film is definitely worth your trip to the cinema. Add a stunning star cast to a well-constructed story and you’ve got a film like Badla on your hands. From the trailer, it looks like it’s going to be one helluva ride.
Shah Rukh Khan tweeted the trailer today as well, since it’s produced under his production house’s banner, Red Chillies.
Sach saabit karna aasaan nahi hota, par saabit kiye bina woh sach, sach nahi hota. Unveil the truth with Badal Gupta in the #BadlaTrailer https://t.co/u62f57ksY3@SrBachchan @Taapsee @sujoy_g @gaurikhan @SunirKheterpal @PuriAkshai @_GauravVerma @redchilliesent @iamazure— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) February 12, 2019
Badla is the story of a young woman who has been betrayed. Taapsee Pannu plays this young woman who has been having an extra-marital affair. She is trapped in a story of deception where someone has been blackmailing her over the affair. Enter lawyer Amitabh Bachchan who is fighting her case. Big B brings in his powerful presence and his Morgan Freeman voice quality makes amplifies everything about the trailer.
Any great trailer will not give away everything in the story and that’s what piques the curiosity for the viewer. Badla’s trailer’s strongest point is how it invites you into the story, shows you stunning visuals but doesn’t give away what’s really happening. Taapsee Pannu and Big B had the same zone in their earlier movie Pink, which worked really well for both of them.
So far so good. We definitely want to watch what Badla is all about. We really hope it doesn’t into one of those films that appear great in the trailer but flounder when it comes to the actual film.
