It is hard being a woman, more so in patriarchal society like India where men are always eager to pass character certificates to women all too quickly for the way they dress, behave, speak and do. Pink is a scathing indictment on our rising tendency to assume and cast aspersions on women who dare, who dream and who question.
Shoojit Sircar’s ‘PINK’ is essentially a simple story of three Delhi girls – Minal (Taapsee Pannu), Falak (Kirti Kulhari) and Andrea (Andrea Tariang) – are on the run after one of them escapes a molestation attempt by a pig-headed, powerful guy, Rajveer (Angad Bedi). Minal attacks Rajveer with a bottle injuring him grievously. This is just the beginning of their nightmare!
The film’s director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, who happens to be a big name in Bengali cinema makes his Bollywood debut with PINK as a master storyteller. With bravura performances, it is undoubtedly and undisputedly the towering Amitabh Bachchan who steals the show. Amitabh Bachchan has played the role of an advocate, has delivered an immensely memorable performance. Trailing an extreme close second is Taapsee Pannu, who manages to ‘earn her place under the sun’ with her sincere portrayal of Minal. Taapsee Pannu will surely be a serious contender for all the awards this year. Kirti Kulhari, whose last film was the forgettable JAL, delivers a rock solid performance in PINK. On the other hand, Andrea Tariang does a very good job too. While Angad Bedi is scarily convincing, Piyush Mishra and his ‘courtroom antics’ are exceptional. Dhritiman Chatterjee is extremely convincing in the role of the judge. The rest of the film’s characters help tremendously in the progress of the film.
PINK carries an important message and it is a must watch for every man & women. With powerful performances from the star cast, the film leaves you shocked, stunned and speechless. Go for it.
