What’s Good: It shows you where we, as a country, are going wrong and you want to know more about it! Ayushmann Khurrana continues his habit of delivering spellbinding performances, a chimerical supporting cast
What’s Bad: The average things come with something good with them (the dark undertones set the mood of the film), so no major complaints. In the minor ones – the pace stumbles at places!
Loo Break: If your bladder allows you to leave this film in between, please follow it!
Watch or Not?: Did you like Sinha’s Mulk? Your answer lies there!
set in a fictional city named as Lal Gaon in Uttar Pradesh (which originally set in Madhya Pradesh), the movie stays true to its name. Exploring the section of Constitution of India which says the state shall not discriminate against any citizen on grounds only of religion, race, caste, sex, place of birth or any of them. IPS officer Ayan Ranjan explores the wrongdoings as he gets transferred to Lal Gaon. Two of the local girls are found hanging on a tree, while another girl goes missing.
Ayan takes it to himself to find the third girl and solve the mystery behind the death of the first two. He’s supported by the local police officers, but soon he understands how fu*ked up the situation he’s. Unravelling multiple dark sides to the story, Ayan tries to maintain his sanity till the end. It’s not just about finding out the final verdict, but also how our country is burdened by the taboos we don’t even know yet.
