Varun Dhawan, Yami Gautam, Huma Qureshi, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Radhika Apte
and Divya Dutta
Raghav alias Raghu (Varun Dhawan) witnesses his wife (Yami
Gautam) and son being killed by goons during a robbery. He is a man
of past and 15 years later, Raghu gets to know who pulled the
trigger to kill his family. The journey of revenge and blood bath
The random African proverb “the axe forgets, the tree remembers”
flashes on the screen and that pretty much sums up the essence
'The axe' in the film is a pair of seemingly amateur bank
robbers Laik (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) and Harman (Vinay Pathak); and
the tree is Varun Dhawan.
The speed in which they kill Misha (Yami) and her son makes
audience wonder, Laik gets caught and is sentence to 20 years in
prison. However, he never gives away the identity of his partner,
who manages to escape from the cops.
The wounded Raghu, who’s trapped in his thirst for vendetta
begins his revenge saga. All he dreams about is how to trap the
villains. Raghu’s transformation from a carefree personality to a
sinister widower is portrayed very well.
Will you sympathise with the manipulative Raghu or the petty
orphaned criminal Laik? Please watch the movie in theatres and get
to know the feeling!
Badlapur Cast Performances:
Varun Dhawan is seen in a totally different and serious avatar
for the first time. He has come out of his chocolate boy image and
romance genre movies like his earlier Student of the Year,
Humpty Shama ki Dulhania and Mein Tera Hero.
Badlapur revolves totally around Varun Dhawan. He
has shouldered the responsibility
which has been given really well. Move over Ranveer
Singh, Arjun Kapoor and other big actors, this guy is here to
Yami Gautam who plays Varun's wife, although has not got too
much of screen time, has performed her character
well. On-screen chemistry between Varun and Yami have worked
Huma Qureshi as a prostitute in the film has done a good job.
She is shining in her character as well.
The lip-lock scene between Divya Dutta and Varun Dhawan which
was hyped a lot has not been added for the sake. Divya Dutta and
Radhika Apte have done justice to their roles which play
really important in the film.
Nawzuddin Siddiqui, the anatagonist, has showed his villainous
streak one notch higher in Badlapur. He brings out
that feeling of hatred in the audience with the
way he has acted.
Badlapur, revenge saga, has been directed well by
Sriram Raghavan with right amount of love, music and
drama. Overall the performances by all actors is like they
have surrendered to their characters.
Badlapur Movie Technicalities:
Pooja Ladha Surti’s editing is very crisp. Screenplay by
director’s younger brother Shridar Raghavan is just astounding.
Soundtrack of the film is composed entirely by Sachin-Jigar, while
the lyrics are penned by Dinesh Vijan and Priya Saraiya. Music is
already a huge hit and it stays fresh in the minds too.
Badlapur Movie Verdict:
Badlapur is a revenge drama full of blood bath which
marks the new beginning for Varun Dhawan in Bollywood industry.

Sriram Raghavan stays true to its genre. The dark goings-on may
make you uncomfortable, while the tension keeps you on tenterhooks
#Badlapur... Varun Dhawan portrays a troubled man with gusto,
shedding the 'Student' tag and donning the robe of a mature,
accomplished actor. #Badlapur
