Starring two phenomenal actors, Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao, Judgementall Hai Kya had a great idea of talking about how people can go haywire owing to mental-health issues but failed to impress because of the poor direction & weak script. Read on…
Movie : JudgeMentall Hai Kya
Director : Prakash Kovelamudi
Rating : 2.5/5
Very seldom it happens that a film looks good from the outside, boasts of a cast which has the two best actors from the industry right now, even has a great idea to start with yet doesn’t create an impact when you actually watch this. The Prakash Kovelamudi directorial JudgeMentall Hai Kya faces the same issues. Starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao in the lead roles, JHK shows how a person who has gone through a lot lot in her or his childhood can grow up to face grave mental-health issues and operates solely because of the things which haunt him or her on a per daily basis. The issues around mental-health and the countless people who are suffering from mental-health issues has never been touched properly in B-Town except a few times like Sadma etc.
Plot : Following the story of two individuals, Bobby (Kangana) and Keshav (Rajkummar) whose lives pivot between reality and illusions, JHK starts with how Bobby’s childhood was scarred and she is all grown up but still lives with the demons she has within. She hears multiple voices inside her mind which sometimes help her to take action for a cause while at times, these same voices haunt her and compel her to stop listening to them. She meets Keshav who just moves in with his girlfriend Meera (Amyra) and starts stalking them like a true creep keeping a check on their day-to-day activities. She begins to imagine that Keshav is a serial killer and wants to kill his girlfriend and starts panicking. She even warns Meera but in vain. She thinks of solving the issue once and for all but as she reaches home one fine evening, she only finds Meera’s dead and burnt body while Keshav sobs away. She tries her best to put Keshav behind bars but the police concludes that she is mad and has gone cuckoo. What happens next is about how she sets herself free from her demons.
What We Liked : The performances by Kangana and Rajkummar are mind-blowing and the aspiring actors can take a lesson or two from their craft. While Kangana is back to what she does the best, ie, act each cell out of your body, Rajkummar was no less as he was gripping and intense in his act. One will surely empathize with Kangana’s character who might brings tears in your eyes as she moves you with the kind of stressful life she is living and what demons she is facing. She is stressed, disturbed, flawed but wins empathy. Even the idea of the film is great! Not to forget, the film which is a thriller is quite snappy.
What We Did Not Like : The poor direction and the ineffective execution of the whole idea why this film was made. The makers had a great idea in their hands to toy with but a weak script and poor direction must be blamed for making this film a dud watch. Also, it is downright predictable. It was easy to predict the climax and what might Kangana see when she will reach her sister’s house in London. Well, we guesses it right! Last but not the least, the climax of the film makes you cringe and is the final nail in the coffin.
Overall Rating : 2.5/5
