Talvar: Movie Review

Talvar means Sword. A shinning sword has the capability to cut down enemy into pieces. Today I am not going to talk about "talvar" and its shapes and figures but about the movie "talvar" which is based on true story of the most controversial murder case in Indian history. The movie talks about “Talvar” of words, about how Indian police reacts to crime. A lot has been said and heard on television on Aarushi murder case and this movie talks about the bitter truth in more convincing way by just portraying facts and figures and letting you, the viewer, decide who is guilty and why?

The story is centred on double murder case which happened in city Noida. 14 year old Aarushi was found dead in her bedroom on March 15. Hemraj who was the servant was initially suspected guilty until he was found dead the other day. Suspicion fell on the parents Dr Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar who were suspected to do "Honour killing" of their daughter. In the movie Gulzar and Bhardwaj name changed remain close to the suspects of the case deny their guilt and investigators identify another equally suspect. Very important part of the movie is played by Actor Irrfan Khan who is detective from Central Bureau of Investigation department named Ashvin Kumar.  

Khan puts together the facts and figures to find the culprit. His zeal and desire to find the culprit will give you Goosebumps. You might be mildly shocked with the interrogation scenes where movie depicts "narco test" being done on the suspects. There is guest appearance of Tabu who plays role of Irrfan Khan’s wife which might be create distractions but plot of the movie is so powerful that it just keeps you alert all the time. You cannot afford to miss any scene.

All the characters in the movie have done justice to their character. Neeraj Kabi and Konkona Sen Sharma had played the role parents adding diverse drama to the mystery solving scenes. Irrfan Khan earns brownie points for the acting and as Ashvin to bring in gravity to investigation and suspicion to the suspects.

If you ask me why you should watch this movie by Meghna Gulzar? My answer is the movie is full of thrilling sequences and remarkable acting.
