Grips you from start to finish
17 September 2016 | by sendmemarketingSee all my reviews

When I read the reviews I thought this movie would be interesting like a typical whodunit- crosses-courtroom drama. When the credits rolled I walked away impressed.

Pink is a tour de force. It's a simmering mixture of morality, drama, mystery and debate whose intensity never slips. I can't recall one Bollywood movie in recent memory which has such taut seriousness that never flags. Pink has no light moments. And it is utterly brilliant.

Part of its brilliance lie in Pink's on-the-money portrayal of biases and confusion surrounding independent, headstrong women in modern Indian society. Shoojit Sarkar brings to light darker biases that most modern Indians - men and women - carry but won't admit to.

The narrative is his secret sauce in ensuring that none of the morality or gravitas ever slip into preachy frivolosity. It's an impactful movie on a serious issue that deserves praise for not trivializing the issues it tackles.

Amitabh Bacchhan is brilliant as always and so are the girls and all supporting actors in the way they bring believability and emotion to their non stereotypical roles.

A great watch - you'd definitely not end disappointed.
