review by
Mike Haberfelner

Vaidehi (Ulka Simone Mohanty) is freshly married to Amar (Ahmed Lucan), but it seems since the wedding Amar has changed for the worse, he has hardly time for her, reacts irritated most of the time, and starts arguments where there should be none. Furthermore he gives her every reason to believe he has an affair with his business partner Neelima (Reem Kadem). Also, Amar's mother Chand (Shruti Tewari) makes no secret of despising Vaidehi, who has come from a poor family, and Chand thinks she has only married Amar for the money. Then though Vaidehi learns that she's pregnant, and she expects this will change everything for the better - but not so, as Amar, under the influence of both Neelima and Chand, treats Vaidehi's pregnancy as if it was her ego-trip, pretty much leaving her alone with everything that concerns it ... and then she learns that the unborn wouldn't survive the birth, and an abortion would be the most sensible thing to do. As she's unable to get comfort from her husband, Vaidehi talks to her therapist friend Rishi (Bahram Khosraviani), who though sees what she tells him as an excuse to get it on with her - and when she rejects him he just calls Amar and tells him she tried to cheat on him. As a consequence, Amar beats Vaidehi black and blue in front of his mother and sister (Sonam Arvind Dhage), upon which Vaidehi tries to be the perfect submissive wife to Amar, out of fear that he'll hit her again ... until she listens in on a conversation between Amar and Neelima where Amar tells her he has actually blackmailed Vaidehi's doctor, Arun (Rahul Nath), into telling her she needs the abortion for medical reasons while the pregnancy in fact went great as can be. This is when something snaps in Vaidehi and she finally takes things into her own hands, first taking care of Amar, then inviting everyone who has wronged her - mother- and sister-in-law, Neelima, Rishi and Arun - to a very special dinner ...

 

This is quite a film, actually. Ok, it might start out as a somewhat exaggerated drama about a woman abused by pretty much everybody at every turn, but is kept believable and relatable by downplaying this on both the directorial and the acting side of things, and then the third act is a really welcome (if bloody violent) pay-off for everything that has happened before, also because Vaidehi's revenge scheme is only revealed by the by, in a(n only seemingly) casual fashion, which really only helps to bring the ultimate punchline to even fuller effect without going explicite or gross - and the ending will creep you out for sure, making this one a very entertaining if often dark ride.
