Amitabh Bachchan plays a lawyer opposite Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang, who play flatmates. The three women file a sexual assault complaint against three men and in turn are accused by them of extortion and attempted murder.
The gritty film, and particularly Andrea's performance, has already received a massive vote of confidence from actress Kangana Ranaut. Earlier this week, Andrea received this message from Kangana: "I wish I wasn't so emotionally fragile and could say this in person but I loved your work - so honest and so natural. Congratulations and I feel this will be a big success, so be ready for it." Kangana watched the film last weekend.
On Twitter, celebrities like Preity Zinta, Dia Mirza, Juhi Chawla, Richa Chadha, Abhishek Bachchan, Rana Daggubati, Kriti Sanon and Ayushmann Khurrana had only good things to say about the 'gem' of a movie.
Big B recently enjoyed a screening himself. He tweeted on Thursday:
