Star Cast: Varun Dhawan, Huma Qureshi, Yami Gautam, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vinay Pathak
Director: Sriram Raghavan
What’s Good: Badlapur is a complete performance driven film. It is one of the best neo-noir representation in Indian cinema. The film has the right amount of gore and will leave its bitter taste on your tongues.
What’s Bad: After being glued to your seats for the first half, the film loses its grip in the second half to a dragged ending. Also the vengeful story lacks a little luster in terms of a complete revenge climax.
Loo break: None required!
Watch or Not?: Badlapur is not everyone’s Cup of Tea, it’s black coffee! This film deals with dark humor and so if your taste buds can enjoy bloody revenges, you will savor this as a delicacy.[wp-review]
