Chhapaak (2020)

Meghna Gulzar gives us a brilliant film which compels us to think. Deepika delivers one of her career bests as ‘Malti’, an acid attack victim survivor.

We get to examine what has enabled the crime, the plight of the survivors, the flaws in the legal system and the wonders of medical science.

Exceptional direction and acting makes this not a ‘poke in the eyes to make you cry’ but a ‘stab in the heart to make you think’. The haunting background score helps to further that cause.

It was an emotional and empowering viewing that makes you strongly want to burn away the prejudice.

4/5
