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.
