As mentioned before, Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu are playing the main leads. The movie also stars Amrita Singh, Manav Kaul and Tony Luke.
Badla is based on the Spanish film, The Invisible Guest, that is directed by Oriol Paulo. Taapsee Pannu's character, a married woman, is accused of killing her lover in a hotel. She tells her new lawyer, played by Amitabh Bachchan, that someone else was present in the room who attacked her and then killed her lover. The lawyer tries to figure out whether she is really telling the truth, as more and more skeletons stumble out of the closet.
Here's the trailer of Badla:
Badla is reportedly made a budget of Rs 30 crore, though there is no official confirmation on this.
Box Office Prediction
According to trade pundits, the film will do well once the positive word of mouth comes into play. Unlike Total Dhamaal, Badla doesn't have a very wide audience target. It's a multiplex movie that will attract the urban, young audience who are akin to watching well-made thrillers. So expecting a big opening wouldn't be fair. Reportedly, trade experts have said that Badla will rake in between Rs 3-4 crore on its first day.
Watch this space for the complete review of the film, Badla. It will be updated soon enough.
