Saturday Stories: BADLA

It has been a while since I’ve watched a movie that made me forget to knit. I recently saw such a Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in Badla (2019)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.
