Meghan Gulzar directed and Deepika’s debut in production. Chhapaak has performances of Bollywood stars: Deepika Padukone, Vikrant Massey, Rohit Sukhwani, Ankit Bisht & Delzad Hiwale.
- A biopic based on the life of real-life acid attack crusader Laxmi Agarwal, a crucial part of this Meghna Gulzar directed release, majorly revolves around the aftermath of this brutal hate crime. Meghna has handled this topic sensitively on the box office whilst underlining the trauma of acid-attack survivors. Meghna chose to make this film a journey about grit & hope instead of just reducing it to a sob story.
Talking about Deepika’s performance in the film as Malti. She makes you feel her every emotion as your own. Whether it is the scene where her character is attacked with acid in broad daylight or when she sees her disfigured face in the mirror for the very 1st time, Deepika catches the pulse of each and every sequence and then effectively conveys it on the silver screen.
Chhapaak title track voiced by Arijit Singh adds that much-needed emotion to the narrative. Nok-Jhok is a sweet & sour glimpse into Malti (Deepika Padukone) & Amol’s (Vikrant Massey) budding romance.
One can say that true love feeds on evergreen inner beauty and not on beauty that ages with time.
When it comes to our view about the flick, the movie is set to debut at your theatres this Friday and box office collection will tell the truth. But for now one can say that Deepika Padukone has done a pretty good job.
These are her words from one of the scenes in Chhapaak, Deepika Padukone’s Malti quips, “Unhone meri surat badli hai, mera mann nahi” & it makes you realize the importance of standing confident & undeterred even in those darkest phases of your life.
Stand Strong with that unshakeable determination and even failures will give you the path.
