Kangana and Rajkummar starter, Judgemental Hai Kya is out now and you cannot miss the madness of the movie. Hallucinogenic, edgy and idiosyncratic, Prakash Kovelamudi’s Judgementall Hai Kya is quite a break from the intonation canvas Article 15 and Super 30 painted in brown the last few Fridays.
Bobby Garewal (Kangana Ranaut) is a personality the world will effortlessly term as ‘crazy’ — and why not? After all, she chooses being sent to a mental asylum as punishment over a fine. But when you scratch the surface, you find a discomforting desire in Bobby for regularity and the comforts of familiarity.
In the movie we see Keshav (Rajkummar Rao) and his wife Rima (Amrya Dastur) change all that for her. Their perfect life and love story intensely affects her, for she knows something all of us fail to accept — koi itna normal kaise ho sakta hai? And that’s where Prakash Kovelamudi’s Judgementall Hai makes its point — loudly, clearly, beautifully.
In terms of performances, Kangana steals the show. Kangana is in every scene, she does justice to the character, but you also sense that it is not always a fair frolicking field. Rajkummar, on the other hand, gets a role that is polished, macho even — unlike anything he’s essayed before — but with little room to really spread his wings. Kangana is taking up most of it.
The film lives up to the message it wants to deliver — that perfection is an illusion. The movie is a great thriller and a must watch.
