Recently some good films are seen which are based on True events happened in our country and that is provoking Bollywood to have some more content oriented stuff. Another film based on real incident i.e Batla House Encounter has made a way into Bollywood’s Mainstream Film industry. Slightly away from Entertaining Mainstream Film-making, Batla House has done Justice to it’s Honest and Patriotic Theme.
The film begins with activities happened on a day of Encounter and ends after 10 years of incident. In between, Investigation, controversies, torture, mental Conditions, Public Reactions, Political Theories, terrorism and court room Drama takes over the screenplay. Acting of John Abraham is commendable because he has came out of his Massy Zone yet delivered a Confident Performance. Mrunal Thakur got to play his Wife for a little time and she looks cute in every appearance. Nora Fateh Ali looks Hot in Item Number While supporting cast is brilliantly supportive. Music of the film doesn’t work and it was never meant to. However, the Background Music is notable in chase sequences. In those 145 minutes screenplay doesn’t look attractive for 120 minutes or so but then last 20 minutes raises the bar and saves the overall narrative. Dialogues, Cinematography, Production Design all sounds Decent. Some loop holes might feel disturbing while watching the film but like i said before, the Climax force you forgive them. Nikhil Advani takes a Risky and Gutsy script to direct and he justifies his selection. As the Overall impact is Good, it would have looked better if the first half had not been boring and clueless.
Coming on the Perfect date of Independence Day, Batla House totally suits the theme and supplies a satisfying Content. It takes time but you will surely clap for the final results at the end. John Abraham adds another good patriotic drama in his filmography and this one is different for so many reasons. As a Whole, Batla House is certainly a Good Film and if you wanna clear all your doubts regarding Batla House controversies then head towards the theatres.
