Mediocre- Fails to live up to the hype and ratings
At the outset the director must be commended for taking on such a bold subject. But it seems he bit more than he could chew. The movie is excellent in patches and absolutely mediocre in the rest.
Apart from the gaping holes in the story and its portrayal, the acting is okay. The movie tries to steamroll its flaws by using a Galaxy of movie stars. Most of the characters are under developed and do not have a backside story. Some characters have no logical explanation about why they do what they do. Ex- Master. Also it is strange to assume that India was filled with rapists through and through.
The movie also generalizes the society of the time and even then fails to capture the essence of it.
The movie as a whole fails to do justice to the subject and you only leave the hall with some scenes, not the entire movie on your mind.
