Talvar-movie review 


Talvar -The most controversial case reopenes . The story that sent shock waves across the country in March 2008 ,when Arushi Talwar a teenager was killed in her house with her parents sleeping in the room next door The case became the talk of the town after the discovery of the servant being killed too.But still the case was messed with the police ,with no proper investigation in the case ,the CBI ego wars also messed up the case further .This is the bitter truth of the country where nothing can be done the right way .The story was filmed and shown with neutral perspective and the star cast couldn’t get better with irfan khan & kokana Sen being part as the familiar faces .The 122 minutes story was directed very well by Megha Gulzar , produced by Vishal Bhardwaj .The movie also tell us how the country still hasn’t changed much in handling cases like these ,the recent example being Indrani Mukherji’s case .The story remained true while portraying the complete incident .
