Chhapaak Movie Review: Story
The film has Deepika Padukone playing the main character Malti, who was acid attacked on a sunny day at the street of Delhi by a family friend named Bashir Khan often called Babbu and his group. The film starts on a note where Malti is trying to move on from the horrifying attack and looking for a job. She has to go through a no of complicated surgeries. With an aspiration of becoming a singer, her dream was thrashed after the attack. Her life was struck in the middle of the surgeries, her work with an NGO who worked for the betterment of acid victims & the court cases. The film is far from a melodrama and showcases the story of the bravery of a woman who stands against all the odds with a smile on her face & an indomitable spirit for her justice.
Her journey was a hard one due to her brother’s illness & the unfortunate death of her father her family wasn’t able to support. It was Malti’s lawyer Archana (Madhurjeet Sarghi) who stood with her all the way in her journey. From Malti’s PIL to the banning of the sale of acids and to take strict action against this type of crime her team of lawyers took on the system in every legal way. Malti’s other support system was Amol (Vikrant Massey) who was her head at the NGO.
