Movie Review: This Naseeruddin Shah-Arshad Warsi Starrer Is All About Good 'Irada' But Poor Execution!
Star Cast: Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi, Sharad Kelkar, Divya Dutta and Sagarika Ghatge

Director: Aparnaa Singh

Producer: Falguni Patel and Prince Soni

Claps For: Performances and Concept

Slaps For: Direction, Screenplay and Songs

What’s New: An ecological thriller is not something we get to see everyday in Bollywood!

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Plot: After a blast in a Bhatinda tycoon’s factory, the corrupt CM orders a fake investigation to bury the matter. Enter NIA cop Arjun Mishra who takes on the charge to follow the orders of the CM for his own benefit.

Things take a turn when he meets a father who lost his daughter to cancer and a woman whose fiance was murdered by the tycoon himself. Soon, he decided to change his ‘Irada’ and bring justice to the people who have been suffering due this imbalance in nature.

Performances: ‘Irada’ belongs to both Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi. While Warsi brings in his own jovial charm to the otherwise serious role of officer Arjun Mishra, it’s heartbreaking to watch him give his 100 percent in yet another half-baked movie!

On the other hand, there’s Naseeruddin Shah who never fails to disappoint. Watching him recite Nawaz Deobandi and Dushyant Kumar’s work with vengeance will leave you with goosebumps.

And yes, the pairing up Shah and Warsi yet again does wonders for the film. However, it is also the only factor that works for the movie and makes it worth the watch.

Divya Dutta is at her usual best, while Sharad Kelkar’s character Paddy Sharma comes across as a replica of any other Bollywood villain we’ve seen in recent times.

Reduced to a whimpering mess, Sagarika Ghatge seems to have accepted that she cannot move out of the “Chak De India girl” tag!

About The Movie: Despite beginning the film on a promising note, director Aparnaa Singh fails to keep the audiences engrossed till the every end and make her ‘Irada’ a hard-hitting flick. It rather ends up coming across as a half-baked attempt which gets even more messier during the second half.

The concept is fantastic and something we don’t get to see in Hindi Cinema; and the director and her team needs to be credited for the amount of hardwork and research done to get the story on the big screens.

What works for ‘Irada’ is that it never deviates from its topic and sticks to the point. However, the lazy screenplay and writing is a big turn off. Add to it the songs that have zero recall value.

Despite a unique concept, ‘Irada’ ends up being just another of one of those half-baked thriller movies lacking originality.

Combo-On-Offer: Drama + Ecological Thriller

Verdict: Even though the film does have good intentions, it fails to be a thrilling ride and ends up wasting the talent of both Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi. Hence, we give ‘Irada’ SLAPS!
