Critic Review
Pink (2016) Shoojit Sircar's PINK is essentially a simple story about the complex problems issues like inequities and hypocrisies the women in India face everyday. The film starts off with a 'tensed up' introduction of Meenal Arora (Taapsee Pannu), Falak Ali (Kirti Kulhari) and Andrea (Andrea Tariang), alongside the 'silent' introduction of retired advocate Deepak Sehgal (Amitabh Bachchan). Meenal, Falak and Andrea live together as paying guests in Delhi, earning their respective livelihoods. These girls lose their smiles and peace of mind because of a terrible incident that threatens their lives. The incident takes place when Rajveer (Angad Bedi) forces himself upon Meenal and she hits him hard with a glass bottle injuring him seriously. After this incident, the girls come under attack from all sides as Rajveer happens to be a polticians nephew. Soon his friends start threatening the girls. When the incident gets registered with the police, it leads to an array of investigations, interrogations and character assasination of the three girls. With no lawyer ready to represent their case, the girls find their sole ray of hope in advocate Deepak Saigal, who volunteers to fight their case, despite having given up his law practice. How will the girls prove their innocence against such a powerful opposition and does advocate Deepak Saigal help the girls win the case and clear their names, is what forms the rest of the film..

Pink is poignant and powerfully provocative. It is a must-watch for everyone with a blurred vision for modern day women.

Many argue that Delhi is wrongly dubbed the 'rape capital of the country', as supposedly more cases are reported there than anywhere else. But poor safety for women isn't the only issue our rajdhani is dented by. This film makes one think of the benefits .

On the whole, PINK is a compelling film which exposes hypocrisies and double standards against women in our society. With powerful performances from the starcast, the film leaves you shocked, stunned and speechless. At the Box Office, it will be patronise.

Some stray bits don't work as well. I'm not sure what the gas masks that Deepak wears or his dying wife add to the character. But i'm nit-picking here..

Every single actor has upped the ante in this 136-minute riveting drama. If Taapsee excels in initial courtroom scenes, Kirti takes it to a whole new level in the finale. The girls have shown a tremendous range and Pink belongs to them. Nobody has oversha.

personality than Amitabh Bachchan in Hindi cinema today, regardless of how many 'women-centric' films Kangana Ranaut has done? Pink is a giant leap, sure, but it can only leap so far. Keeping Pink as a starting point, future writer-directors should build .

If that entire courtroom drama feels too good to be true, that's because, soberingly enough, it is. Amitabh Bachchan isn't around to stand by our women. We should be..

The performances are pitch-perfect with Bachchan leading the way. Creative producer, Shoojit Sircar, who directed (Vicky Donor, Madras Cafe, Piku) makes another valuable addition to his repetoire. Colour Me Pink India!.

'Pink' is a colorful rendering of various emotions and power packed screenplay. The masses might find a bit hard to digest this movie, but for all others it's a must watch.

The movie conveys a hard hitting message for Indian women and how rich still holds justice in this nation.The only negative aspect is Bachchan's Bipolar disorder which means he has mood swings. He also chews out dialogue at times. Rest is just perfect. Th.
