It has been a while since I’ve watched a movie that made me forget to knit. I recently saw such a movie. Badla.
Badal is an Indian whodunit. Two murders occurred. The survivor is a suspect in a murder. She says she was framed. Enter Badla, a very expensive Indian lawyer who demands “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.” Now a game of cat-and-mouse begins because the accused doesn’t trust the lawyer, and the lawyer doesn’t trust his client.
The ‘reenactments’ of what was being told in the story added a lot of information, as well as made you question your choice of suspect in the movie. I actually changed my determination once with the evidence provided.
There is such a twist at the end! I was unprepared for it, but the information had been there the entire time. I love when this happens! It means good writing, good acting, and great story-telling!
Badla is a ‘serious’ movie so there aren’t any song-and-dance in the movie.
