It has loads of intrigue, it has the much-required edge of the seat drama and it reunites Pink stars Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu, well, I am talking about the trailer of Badla that has just hit the net.
The film is all about Badal Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan) who has not lost a single case in his career that spans over 40 years. Now he has his job cut out, which is to defend Naina (Taapsee Pannu), who is found in a locked room with a dead body, a lot of money and her hands covered with blood, both literally and figuratively.
Just like in the film Pink, Deepak Sehgal (Amitabh Bachchan) had successfully defended Minal Arora (Taapsee Pannu), will he manage to do it again. Well, we will have to wait and watch.
The thriller is said to be a remake of 2016 Spanish film, The Invisible Guest. It is the second feature thriller by director Oriol Paulo, following The Body, 2012. The Invisible Guest was released in Spain on January 06, 2017.
Badla marks the fourth collaboration of Mr. Bachchan and Sujoy Ghosh, after Aladin (2009), Kahaani (2012), in which Mr. Bachchan had sung Rabindranath Tagore’s Ekla Chalo Re, and TE3N (2016).
“I am very excited about this film. People wait to work with him and I got to work with him twice in two years. It gives me a lot of excitement and I hope the magic gets repeated. When people say, Bachchan Sir and I are a hit pair, it excites me,” Taapsee had stated about their collaboration in Badla.
All in all, the trailer keeps you guessing till the last minute. You cannot make out if Badal Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan) is playing the game or is he being played.
Badla marks the collaboration between producer Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, Gauri Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, Badla is being directed by Sujoy Ghosh. The film also reunites Pink actors Taapsee Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan.
Badla will release on March 08, 2019.
