The movie is a quirky narrative of life and mind of Bobby (Kangana Ranaut). Bobby is not your regular girl with a regular job. She’s the most intriguing character of the film and holds to herself multiple layers, each completely different from the last. She works as a voice-over artist which seems quite normal, right? But here’s a thing. She was diagnosed early with acute psychosis following trauma in childhood. The condition shows up day to day when she gets lost in her characters she dubs. In her head, she is each and every character she’s ever lent her voice to. With this so much mess already in her head, there comes another twist. Soon a young married couple Rima and Keshav (Amyra Dastur and Rajkummar Rao) become her tenants. Bobby both admires and suspects their too-good-to-be-true love story. To top that, one day someone gets murdered and Bobby suspects Keshav. With as twisted mind as of Bobby, things surely take one interesting turn after another.
This one would surely keep you glued to your seats throughout. The constant whodunit and the quirky narrative are something which will absorb you in right from the start. And over that, the performances are other factors that will keep you hooked. Kangana has performed exceptionally well, portraying the nuances of her complex character way too well. Rajkummar Rao, on the other hand, plays his edgy character effortlessly. Jimmy Sheirgill, playing Kangana’s super-tolerant boyfriend, has done a commendable job bringing hilarity here and there. Some scenes would seem like a stretch and screenplay would seem to have a few holes at points but overall the movie meshes in well.
Judgementall Hai Kya is totally worth a watch. Through this movie, the producers have treaded some untested waters and doing so have earned extra brownie points, just for the amazing innovativeness.
