All those associated with the making of ‘Pink’, please take a deep bow : finally, a powerful, brave Hindi mainstream film which focuses on real young women who live real lives and deal with thorny day-to-day issues, which young women the world over will identify and relate with.

Pink, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles, addresses the issue of patriarchal, condescending attitude towards independent women and stigmatising them in 21st century India.

The story revolves around Minal (Taapsee Pannu), Falak (Kirti Kulhari) and Andrea (Andrea Tariang) – three young working women based in Delhi. A bad twist of events involving a few young men with powerful political ties has them caught in a web of social stigma, law-and-order problem leading to an arrest and finally a showdown in the courtroom.

Pink, like Madaari, also written by Ritesh Shah, is a film that has the trappings of a thriller to keep the audience guessing about the outcome every minute, while simultaneously engaging them in a conversation about contemporary society. Pink is about the patriarchal mindset which looks at independent women capable of making the same choices as independent, enfranchised men, as ‘loose’ or ‘characterless’.

When you have a great script along with actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Piyush Mishra, Dhritiman Chatterjee plus competent young performers like Taapsee and Kirti, you already have a winner in your hands. As such, Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, whose Bengali films had a rather sombre, poetic, deliberate aesthetic, does not get to show much directorial flourish in Pink.

A very interesting thing about Pink is how the film holds back the details of the aforementioned ‘bad twist of events’ up until the beginning of the second half, which is essentially the courtroom part, where everything falls into place. Therefore, the audience is put in the same position as that of the judge, who has no prior information on the plaintiff or the defendant to form an opinion.

As for the performances, Mr Sehgal’s role is a cakewalk for Amitabh Bachchan. Piyush Mishra’s acting has become very predictable and his turn as the slimy lawyer here too delivers no surprises. Taapsee Pannu is excellent, but more so is Kirti Kulhari. It is refreshing to see her in a strong, demanding role after a promising performance in 2011’s Shaitaan. And last but not the least, Angad Bedi. Bedi, as the spoiled son of a politician, rages and froths with hyper-virile masculinity and institutional entitlement. He is a treat to watch.
