Rating: 3.5/5

Cast: Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey

Director: Meghna Gulzar

Story:

The movie opens with the protests which followed the gang rape of Nirbhaya in Delhi in 2012.  This sets the tone for Chhapaak.  The movie is based on the real life incident of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.  The movie depicts the journey of how Malti (Deepika Padukone,) an aspiring teenager, falls victim to an acid attack.  The rest of the movie focuses on how Malti overcomes the emotional damage done to her, attends her trial in the court of law, runs a non government organization (NGO) for acid attack victims and finds love.

Review:

Coming back to the silver screen after playing a proud Rajput queen in Padmaavat, Deepika Padukone underwent an incredible transformation in shedding the ego and portraying the character of Malti, an acid attack survivor.  As the director, Meghna Gulzar managed to portray Malti’s journey without any over the top dialogues or asking for sympathy. The message and the pain echo through the grounded narrative which lets the acting do the talking.

Deepika Padukone delivers a stellar performance in the movie with the makeup to look the part of an acid attack survivor.  In the scene which shows the aftermath of the acid attack on Malti, Malti’s scream of anguish when she looks at herself in the mirror to see a ravaged face tugs at the heart.  So does the scene where she struggles to put on an earring but cannot.  

Vikram Massey plays the role of a former journalist who is now an activist and runs an organisation for acid attack survivors and falls in love with Malti.  The chemistry between Massey and Deepika has something amiss, but Deepika Padukone’s acting stands out. Archana Bajaj, who plays Malti’s lawyer in the film, deserves a mention for her splendid performance.

Chhapaak is a movie which manages to portray the reality of acid attack survivors and makes you empathize with Malti.  The film makes for an engaging watch by making you shed tears as well as making you laugh with witty humour.

Kangana Ranaut’s Take On Indira Jaising Seeking Pardon For Nirbhaya Rapists

Kangana Ranaut Take On Indira Jaising Seeking Pardon,Kangana Ranaut Latest News 2020, Bollywood Celebrities News 2020,Mango Bollywood,Senior Lawyer Indira Jaising,Actress Kangana Ranaut About Nirbhaya Rapists,Kangana Lashed out at Indira Jaising,Kangana Ranaut Latest Comments about Nirbhaya Issue

Kangana Ranaut is an excellent actress as well as a very vocal critic on issues concerning nationalism and politics.  The actress is all set to star in the movie Panga, which is scheduled to be released on January 24th.  During a promotional event for the movie, Kangana Ranaut once again gave a piece of her mind and this time, about senior advocate Indira Jaising.

Indira Jaising was recently in the news when she urged Asha Devi, the mother of Nirbhaya, to pardon the rapists who were convicted in the Nirbhaya rape and murder case.  The convicts were handed out capital punishment and are scheduled to be hanged at Tihar Jail on February 1st. Indira Jaising, who is a noted human rights activist, took to Twitter to share her thoughts about the issue by citing the example of Nalini, who was a convicted assasin in Rajiv Gandhi’s murder and was forgiven by Sonia Gandhi, the wife of the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.  Indira Jaising’s tweet did not sit well with the public, given the nature and brutality of the horrific rape which shocked the collective consciousness of the entire Nation.

 

Kangana Ranaut lashed out at Indira Jaising and said she (Indira Jaising) should be locked up with the rapists for four days in jail because she is sympathetic towards them.  Kangana also went on to say women like Indira Jaising give birth to monsters like them (the rapists.)

 

These comments, however, did not sit well with co star Richa Chadha, to whom Indira Jaising is a role model.  Richa Chadha last appeared as a lawyer in the movie Section 375, which was about an alleged rape of a costume designer by a movie’s director.

Indira Jaising is yet to respond to Kangana Ranaut’s latest comments about the Nirbhaya issue and her tweet.
