Badla Movie Review

Badla: Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Sujoy Gosh would leave you stunned

Badla is inspired by a 2016 Spanish movie “The Invisible Guest” but director Sujoy Ghosh has cleverly saved the film from becoming a remake. For example, the gender of the main character is changed. Here Taapsee Pannu plays the lead role.


Naina Sethi (Taapsee Pannu) is found locked inside a room with the body of her slain lover. It is a murder and since Naina Sethi is caught with the dead, she becomes the prime suspect. But she pleads not guilty of the crime and hires the best criminal lawyer Badal Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan) to defend her case in the court. But all the evidences collected by the police are indicating Nain’s involvement in the murder.

Badla First Look & Poster

The poster has the lead actors – Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu. Also, there is a caption “Maaf Kar Dena Har Baar Sahi Naheen Hota”. Amitabh looks decent in silver hair and gray beard but Taapsee Pannu looks suspicious with only her half face appearing on the poster.

Why watch the movie?

The movie has Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu repeating the lawyer-client relation started in Pink. But here Amitabh Bachchan doesn’t seem to be favoring Taapsee Pannu. Also, it is a murder mystery for those that like content based movies.
