Pink Movie Review: A Film That Everyone Needs to Watch
Pink movie review.

After the absolutely charming Piku, Shoojit Sircar once again teams up with Amitabh Bachchan but this time for a completely different kind of film. Pink has Sircar as producer and Bachchan playing a lawyer defending three young girls who have been accused of murder. But what's the actual reality? Are the girls the perpetrators or the victims? A gritty thriller Pink attempts to answer questions pertinent to the society.

Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, the film features Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Angad Bedi and Andrea Tariang. Pink addresses some grave issues like women safety in the capital city and that how Power overules court judgements.

Right from the trailer, the film has been generating a lot of curiosity. Will it be able to put across its strong message to the society? Shomini Sen of News18.com is inside the theater to find out.

9:25 AM:#Pink tweet review in a bit. Stay tuned.

9:37 AM: Directed by Aniruddha Roy Choudhury #Pink is set in New Delhi

9:47 AM: The first scene itself sets the grim tone of the film. #Pink

9:53 AM: So good to see Vinod Nagpal in a film after ages. #Pink #HumLog #YouRemember

10:06 AM: 'Kal ko baat badegi to badnaami toh tum ladkiyon ki hi hogi' how we need to change this mindset. #Pink

10:24 AM: The screenplay is so hard hitting that will shake you up at times. #Pink

10:34 AM: Sharp screenplay, edgy narrative makes first half of #Pink flawless.

10:35 AM: There is a certain eeriness in the premise of the story. Keeps one on the edge. #Pink

10:49 AM: The courtroom scene seems lack of melodrama. It's very to the point. #Pink

10:53 AM: No one ever highlights the problems women from North East states face in Delhi. But #Pink does. Subtly gets the point across.

11:03 AM: 'Humare yahaan ghari ki sui insaan ka character decide karti hai' So true, no? #Pink

11:27 AM: No is never an yes. A 'No' is ALWAYS a 'No' . #Pink

11:44 AM: 'Achhe ghar ki ladkiyaan sharab nahi peeti' Hahaha! Hum sab kharab hai by that logic ;) #Pink

11:53 AM: Only if our courts were this quick at delivering justice like our movies do, our country would have been a better place to live in. #Pink

11:57 AM: #Pink will make you angry. It will rattle your conscience. Because we all are responsible for making our society insensitive towards women

11:58 AM: We all have at some point of time labeled a woman for not confirming to set standards . And that's why #Pink is relevant.

12:00 PM: The three actresses @taapsee , @KirtiKulhari and Andrea - take a bow. You shine in #Pink despite seasoned actors like Big B and Piyush Mishra

12:01 PM: It takes courage to do a tell a story like #Pink within the commercial realms of cinema. Kudos #AniruddhaRoyChoudhury and @ShoojitSircar

12:04 PM: #Pink holds a mirror to pur society where power and influence can intimidate judgements. Where we are quick to label people

12:04 PM: Everyone needs to watch #Pink. There are no two ways to this. It is that relevant a film.

12:05 PM: Thanks for staying with us throughout the tweet review of #Pink. #RaazReboot coming up next.
