Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, Pink portrays a very relevant issue that every independent woman must have been through in one or the other form in her life. It revolves around the ridiculousness of feudal system and patriarchal mindset that decides what is "right" for the women and what is "wrong" for the women.

Three working women Meenal (Tapsee Pannu), Falak (Kriti Kulhari) and Andrea (Andrea Tariang) live independently in South Delhi. One day, the trio happen to go for a rock concert but a casual dinner plan with Rajvir (Angad Singh Bedi) and his group puts them in a gamut of incidents that run out of their control. Forced, molested by Rajvir under the pretext of dinner, Meenal saves her herself by hitting Rajvir. Out of nothing but his unreasonable chauvinism Rajvir seeks vengeance and that results into a messy political cartel which tries its best to destroy the lives of Meenal, Falak, and Andrea.

However, a famous yet bipolar lawyer, Deepak Sehgal (Amitabh Bachchan) who has always kept an eye on these girls and even frightened them through his vigilance at some point, undergoes a conscience call to help the damsels in distress. Though they are abused and insulted by Rajvir and his lawyer (Piyush Mishra), the girls keep a strong face and fight for their dignity, justice. Piyush Mishra totally disappoints with his performance as it is easily overtaken by Dhritiman Chatterjee through his finesse. While Tapsee Pannu carries the first half on her shoulders. The second half shall make you witness some substantial moments by Kriti and Bachchan.

The treatment and the pace of its script are balanced. Coupled with the thrill and noir of the first half, the second half tosses the raw reality of typecasting independent women in India on your face! The story of Pink connects through time and space. And, probably, it is for the first time that a mainstream Hindi flick deals with a relevant social issue without losing its context. While a woman's 'NO' is easily overruled and not taken on face value, Pink through its candid script establishes the otherwise without making any woman feel sorry for her choice.

4 Shors out of 5!
