“With a gripping story and Irrfan’s brilliant acting, Talvar is surely worth watching.”
The twin murder case has been the most talked about case in the recent times amongst the public as well the media. After Avirook Sen's book, "Aarushi", now we have Meghna Gulzar's Talvar which will make you sit on the edge of your seat right till the end of the movie.
The details about Aarushi and Hemraj's killing are known to everyone but Meghna Gulzar managed to grab our attention to the possibilities which were never thought of before. She points out those facts in the movie which were very conveniently ignored by our system.
Gulzar, who returned to direction after 8 years has done her bit of research and has gone about methodically in developing the police procedure without making any judgements.
Talvar has an amazing lineup of actors - Irfan Khan, Konkana Sen Sharma and Neeraj Kabi who interestingly looked like Rajesh Talwar. Irfan Khan plays the role of CDI officer, Ashwin Kumar and undoubtedly, he manages to hold you with him till the very end of the movie. The film gives us different versions of how the murder took place. One side shows where the parents are blamed whereas the other shows that the servants are the culprits.
Talvar is a brave film and uses the "Rashomon effect" which shows how subjective human perceptions can be. The main aim was to show that whatever we know are different perceptions and not actual facts which in turn can mean that Talwars might have been wrongly convicted.
All in all, it is a gripping thriller with brilliant performances and some witty dialogues. It is a must watch and yes, you will come out with a different perception after this.
