The movie, directed by Sujoy Ghosh, reunites the PINK stars Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu as the lead protagonists here. Interestingly, Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment is one of the producers of the movie, though there is no confirmation yet if he is going to make an appearance in Badla. The trailer is all sorts of intrigue with Amitabh Bachchan playing a smart lawyer and Taapsee Pannu his new, mysterious client.

ICYMI, Here's the Trailer of Badla:
Badla is reportedly a remake of the Spanish thriller Contratiempo, which is internationally known as The Invisible Guest. The movie had come out in 2016 and was directed by Oriol Paulo. Interestingly, one of his other movies, The Body, is also being remade in Bollywood with Emraan Hashmi and Rishi Kapoor in the lead. The Body!

Talking more about The Invisible Guest, the movie stars Mario Casas and Blanca Martínez in the lead. When it comes to Badla, there is a gender reversal in who is playing the lead roles. Mario Casas plays Adrian, who is accused of killing his married lover in a cabin, a role that Taapsee is playing in Badla. Blanca Martínez plays Virginia, the lawyer that is sent to represent Adrian and hear out his version, which is what Big B is playing in the remake.

Here's the trailer of The Invisible Guest:
The Invisible Guest, unlike the more acclaimed The Body, was met with mixed reviews. However, the movie performed well enough at the box office and the aura was sufficient for Sujoy Ghosh, who gave us the scintillating Kahaani, to notice and go for a remake. Badla, meanwhile, will release on March 8, when we will find out if Sujoy has gone for a frame to frame adaptation or added some mystery of his own.
