Excerpts & links to reviews of Judgementall Hai Kya
Starring: Kangana Ranaut, Rajkummar Rao, Lalit Behl Director: Prakash Kovelamudi India release date: July 26, 2019 Genre: Comedy-drama-thriller Language: Hindi Duration: 1 hour, 57 mins
“Reflections of the star’s real-life run-ins with influential members of the industry and segments of the media are too obvious to be missed. Her character in the film exists on the fringes of the movie industry.”
“As Ranaut embodies a character so awfully sad and tragic, one almost wants to be a voice in her head and tell her that it’s going to be all right. The world isn’t out there to get you and that that your persecution complex is misplaced. Is it, though?”
“Glorious manifestation of the contentious star’s ‘I’ll go down but take everybody down with me’ attitude known to endear some and enrage others… An expedition into the unhinged, unstable, unreliable mind of a woman single-handedly refusing to be dictated by patriarchy. It’s also a provocative commentary on society’s tendency to label individuals refusing to subscribe to its established norms and decorum.”
“What if roles were reversed and instead of Raavan pursuing Sita in the Ramayan, she were to sense his intentions in advance and go after him? The question is at the core of director Prakash Kovelmudi’s Judgementall Hai Kya which places a story of domestic abuse, the effect of violence on a child’s psyche and mental illness against the backdrop of one of India’s favourite epics.”
“Ranaut’s willingness to inhabit different shades of instability has made her one of the most exciting Indian actors of the past decade… I felt I was watching Kangana imitating Kangana playing one of her characters.”
