Hard hitting fare

A sellable star without much of an image , Varun is juxtaposed with screen gems like Nawaazuddin and Vinay Pathak. Huma Quershi, Radhika Apte and Yami Gautam lead the ladies brigade with consummate ease and luminescence bringing strength to their parts. While Varun finds it hard understandably to m...(more)

Brisk and absorbing, concluding differently than expected,Badlapur is an inspired film that dangerously attempts to change the landscape of the thriller genre in Bollywood.

The driving force here are the actors who evolve the story. Varun's measured acting and sincere eyes draw empathy. With each scene, the intense hues he brings to Raghu, unravel. Nawaz is superlative as Liak, bringing a sinful streak of twisted comedy, teaming it with unabashed swagger. The ladies de...(more)

BADLAPUR offers you cinematic excellence with a rider that there's violence and gore, which may not be everyone's cup of bitter coffee

Badlapur is not everyone�s regular coffee, it�s black coffee!

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.(more)

Badlapur might not be in the Ek Hasina Thi and Johnny Gaddar league, but it is a happy sign that Sriram Raghavan has left Agent Vinod behind.

Both Liak and Raghu treat these women like useless chattel, with the latter, who is supposed to be the righteous hero, reveling in forcing them to disrobe and do his bidding. It is his way of settling scores with the men that he wants to punish. The criminal's mother, too, is at the receiving end...(more)

Don't miss the beginning' because it's brilliant, the rest is missable.

Badlapur feels vaguely familiar because the aesthetic and storytelling are so heavily inspired by modern Korean noir, in which everyday people reveal themselves to be capable of extraordinary cruelty. What Badlapur lacks, however, is their tautness. By the time interval strikes, you realise you've s...(more)

Watch the best of Varun and Nawaz in Badlapur.

This film has some amazing moments and a lot of credit goes to the director and his actors. Raghvan gives them an open field to perform and show their best skills, the magic is obviously in the writing. The film also has its fair share of unnecessary scenes like the sex scene between Raghav and Jhim...(more)

Badlapur is a dark, unflinching, fantastic film

It is a film where an alert policeman spots something through an eye-hole but, a few inches below it, is another opening that could well be a glory-hole. It is a film that broods, and one that refuses to put a fun spin on things, Raghavan preferring instead to put the �dead� in �deadpan.� The last...(more)
