Badla is Sujoy Ghosh‘s official remake of The Invisible Guest, with genders swapped of the protagonists from the original film. The trailer is intriguing, and given the name and the tagline of the film, it appears that it will be treated more as a thriller than a suspense drama, with the ‘twist’ revealed early and the rest of the film playing out on a more psychological mode to expose human complexities.
Amitabh Bachhan owns the trailer and looks in excellent form after long. I am not sure if the trailer was cut a certain way but Taapsee Pannu seemed to be somewhat low on energy. Amrita Singh‘s quick look is impressive. Overall, we will have to wait to see how Sujoy Ghosh pulls this up, for now the overall trailer is lukewarm.
Badla releases on March 8th, 2019.
