Bold, satirical, hitting you hard on the perception of a women in our society making people judge her character on how she is dressed, where she goes, how she talks, when she comes back home etc etc etc.
PINK A Film that has got a strong message , stunning acting , courtroom satire , thought steering on how the society behaves towards women, from a chauvinist male to a police officer, to neighbors judging their character on how they talk, behave, dress up.but when it comes to their own women behavior they have a different definition.
The movie revolves around three independent , modern day working women Meenal (Taapsee Pannu ) – Is a dancer and lives away from parents who stay in karolbagh , Andrea (Tariang ) – works with event management company & Falak Ali ( Kirti Khullar ) – A corporate executive who had a relationship with a college professor. The story starts with the women trying to flea away from a place after an incident where a guy has got hurt and is profusely bleeding. They have met at a Rock concert and Meenal’s common friend introduces them to Rajveer and gang and then they went for dinner at a resort in Surajkund after drinks Rajveer tries to molest Meenal and that leads to this incident.
Rajveer comes from a well connected family and thus lodges an FIR (7days after the incident ) with his political influence done on backdate and thus the trio lands up in court.
Courtroom trials have the most interesting conversations where erstwhile Lawyer Deepak Sehgal(Amitabh Bachaan ) very intensely fights for Meenal and women as a whole creating his thoughtful rules for girls that are followed by the society on dos and donts of a women. Piyush playing the Opposition lawyer had done commendable acting defending his client Rajveer and bringing all the facts to light.every character of the movie has done full justice to the movie and shows how strong the direction of the movie is. Mr Sehgal draws very strong statement how our feudal society follows different yardsticks to judge a man and a woman. Sehgal questioning Meenal on her virginity to drinking habits makes up for intense courtroom trials. And from a women “No ” means N O – no even if it comes from your wife or any women be it a sex worker.
A story that is very well scripted with very strong punches that really hit you hard, dialogues which steer the state of our society and show the judgemental nature of people for women especially the working women, courtroom satire that lightens up the intense subject throughout the movie and gives you enough giggles or may be laughter for few like me , all in all its a must watch movie for all.
Though there are of things that end abruptly like Lawyer Deepak sehgal’s wife dies during the trial and there is only one scene displaying that , Deepak is a bipolar but that doesnt come out much in the film, also the girls have lodged a complain much before Rajveer’s FIR but that does not make up as an evidence to the court, the doctor after attending to rajveer insists for reporting of the incident but the boys denied, landlord being threatened by Rajveer’s gang to throw the girls out of the house, the girls were not “FARAAR” as quoted by the SHO .Probably more than the emotional quotient of the girls if focus was more on evidences from there side, would have made it more intense.But all said and done its a great watch movie for sure.
