Ratings:.3/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand  Site: News18

The film’s zig-zag plotting is its biggest strength although it’s not especially hard to figure out the ending. Yet Ghosh keeps the suspense at boiling point and the viewer invested in the outcome. Badla is handsomely mounted, unfolding for the most part in atmospheric, gloomy, wintertime Glasgow. The film doesn’t pack the wallop that Kahaani delivered, but it’s a respectable enough thriller that seldom loses grip of its pace or your attention.I’m going with three out of five.

An edge-of-the-seat thriller with incredible suspense… Well-knit screenplay keeps you hooked… Sujoy Ghosh crafts the whodunnit with expertise… Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee and Amrita Singh, all brilliant.

Badla is an official adaptation of the 2016 Spanish movie The Invisible Guest. I purposely didn’t watch that film because I didn’t want to taint my experience of this one. Despite that, about halfway through Badla, I predicted the end. Which isn’t a sign of how smart I am. It’s more an indication that this film isn’t as clever as it thinks it is.Badla remains watchable until the end but it doesn’t become essential viewing. I’m going with two and a half stars.

Director Sujoy Ghosh has made a habit of pulling off complex thrillers like Kahaani and Kahaani 2 with ease, and with the multi-layered narrative of Badla, he seems right at home. The cinematography by Avik Mukhopadhyay, the editing by Monisha R Baldawa and the background score by Clinton Cerejo compliment Ghosh’s edge-of-the-seat storytelling. The predictability of the screenplay dampens the thrills occasionally, also the climactic twist requires a healthy dose of suspense of disbelief. But, even the seasoned genre faithfuls will agree that Badla offers a creative and thrilling end to a captivating mystery.

Dead men quell no tales. You cannot defame the dead, and they aren’t around to disagree. Sujoy Ghosh’s Badla features a slick, relentlessly twisty cat-and-mouse game played with both cat and mouse sitting in the same room, strategising across a table. A woman has been accused of murdering her lover, and a lawyer wants to get to her truth in order to defend her. Neither believes in the other, and both will do anything to uncover the truth of the other — even lie.

Ratings:.3/5 Review By: Saibal   Site: NDTV

Badla is a crime thriller that lifts itself out of the limitations of the form by spotlighting questions of guilt and retribution without diluting its edgy quality. The film’s multiple twists and turns will work best if you haven’t seen Contratiempo. But even if you have, the quality of the acting and the technical finesse on show – Avik Mukhopadhyay’s unobtrusive yet effective camerawork is especially noteworthy – make Badla an unmissable film.

Two dead bodies. Two locations: one in the open, in a forest; the other a closed-room, made popular by Agatha Christie’s novels. Are the two connected? Who is the killer? The one who is arrested? Or someone else? Badla, an official remake of a Spanish murder mystery, pulls off a mostly gripping whodunit, something Bollywood rarely manages.

As different versions of the same truth play out over the next two hours, Ghosh gives you a peek into the real truth v/s falsehood, and arrogance v/s ignorance. As the filmmaker cleverly seeks to unravel the layers within the layers in people, he also very cleverly unearths the truth. And in doing so, he takes the viewer on a thrilling ride solving both the mystery and fallible human nature. To give away anything of the plot is a crime

All said and done, Badla does not just keep you hooked till the end but it destroys your delusion of ‘I’ve predicted the climax’. Outstandingly performed mind-numbing drama that is on a slow burner and in those last couple of minutes, it explodes like a good dream.

Badla is cleverly scripted and executed with a brilliant cast. It is both engaging and enjoyable. It is also probably a rare Bollywood film that you have to love because it manages to outsmart you!
