Shoojit Sircar and Amitabh Bachchan team up once again after Piku, this time for a social thriller titled Pink. Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, the film also stars Tapsee Pannu and Piyush Mishra in prominent roles. The theme seems to be the discrimination women face when they’re on trial, even when they’re the ones victimised. The intimate details required by them on a public platform are a little too much for them to let go of, and even their families offer little support in such sensitive times.
Amitabh Bachchan in his masked avatar reminds us of Shahenshah, and even though the themes are entirely different, the fact that both these films have Amitabh and courtroom in common has got us excited enough. Piyush Mishra simply sizzles onscreen as the defending lawyer.
The trailer doesn’t give away too much of the plot, but promises a lot of good stuff.
The film releases in theaters 16th September, 2016.
