The cinema is a great place to unwind and take a break from  real life, but sometimes a good movie is actually based on a real story.Selected bloggers were invited to attend the special screening of the movie “Talvar”. I was thrilled to view the movie knowing it’s  controversial story. Since the day one, I was following this case through media but I was eager to know the unfolding of the double murder case.

Talvar is a film loosely based on the 2008’s Noida Double Murder case, which is probably the most controversial case in India. The case got many twists and turns in between and received heavy media coverage.In fact, many circumstantial pieces of evidence tampered and officers were replaced in between. The double murder case aroused public interest due to extensive coverage by media.  Watching reality, a movie is so different than what we see in media.Talvar stars powerful actors like Irrfan Khan, Konkana Sen Sharma and Neeraj Kabi backed by names like Meghna Gulzar  and Vishal Bhardwaj.Irrfan Khan gives a power packed performance and takes the story ahead, the rest of the supporting cast did a splendid job. Meghna Gulzar  has done a good job by keeping the story line crisp and to the point.

Talvar opened to an overwhelming response with packed houses at the 40th Toronto International Film Festival.

The movie created so much anticipation among the audience that the tickets were sold out in few hours. Watch Talvar thisFriday unravels the murder mystery.Irrfan Khan’s stellar performance after global success in “Jurassic World”, he is back to the domestic turf and you won’t be disappointed. Konkana Sen  looks  natural and did justice to her role. Vishal Bhardwaj is the music composer, writer and producer of the movie. The background score is good and keep the story moving at a slow pace since it  is based on real life events. A must watch for those who love content driven movies.
