There is no doubt that the association of Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu was very much appreciated for Pink. And, again people have praised the duo in the recently released movie ‘Badla.’ The flick has impressed the audience as well as film critics and off to a good start at the box office with earnings of Rs 5.94 crore on its opening day.

The storyline of the movie begins as Taapsee Pannu playing a character of Naina is accused of the murder of Arjun (Tony Luke). And, Manav Kaul playing the character of her lawyer Jimmy hires Amitabh Bachchan playing the senior advocate Badal Gupta to help crack the case and defend Naina. However, their interrogation is timed for two hours which brings out the different shades of both of these characters and converts it into an engrossing thriller.

The film, produced by Red Chillies Entertainment in association with Azure Entertainment and helmed by director Sujoy Ghosh, is an official remake of the 2017 Spanish film The Invisible Guest.

Ghosh spoke about the equation between lead stars Taapsee and Amitabh in his interview with indianexpress.com earlier.

He said,

“They are very comfortable with each other. They have known each other for long, which is great but that doesn’t help because this is a new film. So, no matter how well they know each or how much they have worked, they still have to start from scratch in my film.”
About the role, Taapsee Pannu had earlier stated,
"It's a character I have never done before so wanted to have an interesting look put together. She is a sharp and intimidating woman who dresses up in an extremely prim n proper way. Kerry Washington's look was a perfect reference point for us and if I can achieve something even close to hers I think we will be good."
In review, popular movie critic Taran Adarsh tweeted,
“#OneWordReview… #Badla: CAPTIVATING! Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️½ An edge-of-the-seat thriller with incredible suspense... Well-knit screenplay keeps you hooked... Sujoy Ghosh crafts the whodunnit with expertise... Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee and Amrita Singh, all brilliant. #BadlaReview”

About box office collection Day 1 of the flick Badla, Taran tweeted,

“#Badla goes from strength to strength on Day 1... Picked up speed late afternoon onwards at metros, with appreciable growth in evening... Strong word of mouth has come into play... Should witness substantial growth on Day 2 and 3... Fri ₹ 5.04 cr. India biz. Gross: ₹ 5.94 cr.”

He further tweeted the comparison of Pink, 102 Not Out and Badla opening day collection. He wrote,

“#Pink versus #102NotOut versus #Badla... Opening Day biz: 2019: #Badla ₹ 5.04 cr 2016: #Pink ₹ 4.32 cr 2018: #102NotOut ₹ 3.52 cr India biz.”

Must say, the movie is recommended for the brilliance of Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, as well as Sujoy Ghosh.
