Inkaar Movie Review-In Short
An advertising agency turns into a battlefield of corporate politics when a high-ranking executive accuses her mentor of sexual harassment
Inkaar Movie Review-Verdict
Though the film is quite visually appealing and forces you to think, we feel it should have been crisper
Inkaar Movie Review-Story Plot
Maya Luthra (Chitrangda Singh
) is a talented copywriter at an advertising agency, who climbs up the corporate ladder in minimal time due to the help and guidance of her mentor Rahul Verma (Arjun Rampal
However, all is not what it seems and the murky world of gender politics in a corporate environment is soon laid bare when Maya accuses Rahul of sexual harassment. To further complicate things, Rahul accuses her of indulging in manipulation to reach the top and finally, an enquiry is set up under Mrs. Kamdar (Deepti Naval
), an independent social worker-judge.
Who is guilty? Who is innocent? Nothing is ever simple…to find out the rest, watch the movie.
Inkaar Movie Review-Performance
Both Chitrangda and Arjun look great on screen and manage to hold their own wonderfully. Arjun gives a restrained performance as the ad agency honcho, whereas Chitrangda oozes sensuality in every scene. The rest of the cast, comprising Deepti Naval, Vipin Sharma
and others, are decent enough too. Special mention must be made of Vipin Sharma, whose witty one-liners will have you chuckling merrily.
Inkaar Movie Review-Direction
At the outset, it must be mentioned that the film is quite visually appealing and is beautifully shot. Another area where Sudhir Mishra deserves kudos is the way he keeps the entire issue quite ambiguous. Unlike other films like Aitraaz
, where the issue of sexual harassment seemed quite open and shut, Inkaar
forces you to think everything twice. For example- the scene where Rahul demands to know the difference between casual flirting and sexual harassment. The film is shown from the point of views of both Rahul and Maya and it is difficult to side with any one character…for both seem to justify their stands quite effectively. However, on the flip side, the film should sure have been crisper than what it is and the climax scene will leave you confused about what exactly happened.
Inkaar Movie Review-Final Word
If you don't mind a film that seems to move at a slow pace to make a point, do go watch it. For fans of Arjun and Chitrangda, it's a visual treat for sure!
