Bandaa Movie Review: Manoj Bajpayee starrer Bandaa Streaming Now On Zee5. We’ve just completed watching this movie, and there is a lot to tell about this social drama courtroom movie. First of all, we want to tell you that this movie is based on a true story, the Aasaram Bapu case.
Bandaa is based on a case that started in the year 2013 and ran for more than 5 years. The girl was sexually abused by a godman at an Aashram. When she tried to raise her voice, no one was there to help her out in this critical condition. PC Solanki, played by Manoj Bajpayee, came to fight her case.
The movie starts with a 16-year-old named NU Singh, played by Adrija Singh (known for playing Kriti Kulhar’s daughter in Criminal Justice Season 2). She was going to the police to lodge a complaint against that godman.
Under the POSCO Act of 2012, an FIR was lodged. POSCO stands for Protection of Children from Sexual Offences, which was created after the Delhi Nirbhaya case. Just after the complaint, the police went to the Aashram and arrested Baba in 15 days’ custody. Before PC Solanki, another lawyer was fighting their case in court, but Nu’s father came to know that the lawyer was corrupt.
He immediately went to PC Solanki and requested him to fight his case. The dialogue delivery of Manoj Bajpayee was on point during the whole movie. We can’t tell you the whole story. We recommend you watch this movie. There are so many references to Babaji’s son in real life. We know him as Narayan Baba (Aasaram’s son), who also got arrested under molestation charges.
This movie is the first directorial movie of Director Apoorva Singh Karki. Before this, he had created shows like College Romance and Aspirants. Manoj Bajpayee himself approached Apoorva Singh Karki to direct this movie. Manoj Bajpayee’s references to Ram and Raavan during the courtroom arguments looked so real that we can believe a real court case is going on. The characters made look so real. The makeup artists have done a fantastic job.
Cinematography looked very weird. The screenplay was sloppy, but if you look in detail, then only it can be noticed; otherwise, it can be ignored.
Recently, Manoj Bajpayee also came into Rajat Sharma’s Aap Ki Adalat. In that, Rajat Sharma introduced Manoj Bajpayee as OTT Ke Badshaah. And in Bandaa, Manoj proved that he’s a great actor. He can handle any role, whether it is an agent, comedian, or lawyer. He handles every role with so much versatility.
We strongly recommend this movie to watch. This is an eye-opening movie that passes a great social message that everyone should understand. The best courtroom drama movie of this year till now.
The whole cast of the movie, including Vipin Sharma, Abhijeet Lahiri, Vivek Tandon, and Balaji Lakshminarasimhan, played supporting characters. Jai Hind Kumar and Durga Sharma played the roles of Nu’s father and mother. Manoj Bajpayee, as always, nailed it in his character.
