Finally, Blockbuster of the era, “Judgementall Hai Kya,” is in theatres today. Helmed by Prakash Kovelamudi and written by Kanika Dhillon, this is a movie one of its kind. Yes, you might have never seen such a dark seriocomic thriller and murder mystery with touches of horror bound by stylized edges, for sure not in Bollywood.
Ranaut plays Bobby Grewal Batliwala, a half-Punjabi half-Parsi girl, in the flick, who grew up with the trauma of her parent's death. It has been that since childhood, she started folding paper boats and birds out of bad news, or, more specifically, the grisliest newspaper reports which are about domestic violence.
Not only that, but she’s also played as an impassioned dubbing artist in the movie who gets pictures taken imagining herself in roles she’s only voiced for local markets. She doesn’t like her medication as it can be seen how “comfortable” she is volunteering to spend months in a psychiatric facility.
Moreover, this girl plays carrom with her medicines. But soon the audience learns that she faced a scarring childhood and later given a gradual awareness of her mental fragility, or else we would conveniently have called her ‘quirky.’
On the other hand, Keshav, (Rajkumar Rao) as you may have assumed, is quite a character. Further, you can see how a theatre director, ignorant of all her past and labels, marvels at her pluck: to him, she’s simply a pixie, manic dream girl. In the mid of the movie, you will start thinking, if Bobby needed to be freer of our judgment, or, conversely, whether most manic-pixie heroines need medication.
The reason why the flick Judgementall Hai Kya works is not only its racy script but also its star cast. Undoubtedly it can be said that nobody apart from Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao could have been better cast in the dark roles portrayed. And, also the climax of this suspense thriller will surely leave you stunned.
Even after the movie title changed and further controversies occurred before the movie release, the movie kept the element of suspense intact all the way, up to the end. With a social message weaved in which can’t be ignored, the film pushes the envelope as a dark, psychological whodunit.
Apart from all, the film walks into a zone where Bollywood has rarely been. And for that, it deserves a big applause.
So as from the article, now you know that both the actors’ acting is extraordinary. Do watch the movie at least once to find out that who, the quirky Kangana or innocent-looking Rajkummar, is the murderer?
