Finally, the dull box-office from past one month will get some colour through PINK.
The story of the movie revolves around three Delhi girls Minal (Taapsee ), Falak ( Kirti ), Andrea ( Andrea ). Suddenly an incident takes place in their life, Rajveer ( Angad ) tries to molest Minal and in order to escape she hits him hard with a bottle. This incident changes their life-like a frightening nightmare.
This movie is a mirror of our society, it raises the various problems faced by women in our country. It tells us how the society has been modernising only through their clothes, but that old and cheap mindset still persists everywhere.
Talking about the movie, Minal, Falak and Andrea are working women, living in Delhi. They know they have to be tough to chop up the problems, in this male dominating society. One night the girls meet a guy Rajveer Singh. They accept the dinner invitation by him and his friends at a resort. But the night takes an ugly phase when Rajveer forces himself upon Minal. In order to escape, she hits him hard with a bottle. They come back home, hoping that everything would be fine by the morning. But the incident turns out to be a nightmare for them as Rajveer happens to be the nephew of a politician.
They start threatening the girls and lodge a FIR against them, labelling them prostitutes. They got arrested and a war between genders starts. Girls appoint a defence lawyer Deepak Sehgal ( Amitabh ) for themselves and the courtroom drama begins.
Everything in the movie has been kept so simple and honest. The best thing about this movie is it tends to bound the audience. Everyone will be able to relate this movie, as the issues raised in the movie are the issues of our societies too. Where a girl’s character is judged by the length of her skirt.
Everyone has given their best from the trio of Taapsee, Kirti and Andrea to Bachchan. Everything is so raw that getting teary becomes quite obvious.
