Madaari (2016)

A must watch for every Indian, this film tells us a truth we all know. The way it is narrated makes us part of the injustice and connects it with our real life.

Director Nishikant Kamat takes on a difficult subject and handles it with a lot of courage, challenging everything that’s in power. Or the concept of power itself, which has been eating away slowly at our existence.

Irrfan has done many memorable roles and this will be counted as one of them. He is understated with sparks of immense angst that show from time to time. What caused that angst and his actions in general make up the film.

Jimmy Shergill plays the law who is cleverly trying to catch him. Child actor Vishesh Bansal plays an important role of a young boy that understands much more than you think it does, or should. We have a bunch of politicians which show us how agendas, loyalties and prejudices make such a big part of how our system is run.

The sad truth where we are left powerless on how to change it, but there it is.

3.5/5
