Chhapaak moves the human in you and Deepika Padukone creates a fine balance between performing on emotional level. Watch the film for Deepika Padukone’s performance and the film gives information about certain traditional laws that make no sense.

The film revolves around the life of an acid-attack survivor Malti (Deepika Padukone), the story paces to 13 years of her life. Right from the 12th grade when the incident happened to the hearing of her court case, we get to see the difficult phase of her life. Chhapaak starts with Malti lookout for a job and bumping into Amol (Vikrant Massey). Amol runs an NGO named Chaaya who helps the acid-attack survivors. Malti joins him in this cause and goes through the traces of her journey through the other survivors. She also gains courage to fight for the PIL (Publish Interest Litigation) helmed by her for banning the open sale of acid. The film is  all about what all she goes through with the fact that few drops of acid can’t take everything from her. Chhapaak is genuine film with chilling moments that makes one feel for the victim. An interviewer ignoring to have food in front of Malti, she was labeling as ‘disabled’ and more such moments that are disturbing the human in you.

Chhapaak star performance is good with the character of Malti and the prosthetics. Deepika Padukone is great and is able to make a point. Meghna works hard to bring out her smile to capture the audience and she’s successful at it. Deepika Padukone attains a massive task to maintain the balance between displaying the emotions and let her face do the talking.

Vikrant Massey gets a smaller role with half-baked character. He gives his best to fit in the story, he adds during the major chunk of his screen-space. Right from the supporting cast, Madhurjeet Sarghi who plays the lawyer is phenomenal in her role. Ipshita Chakraborty is impressive in her cameo.

Chhapaak offers sensitivity to the subject, with a few things missing. Meghna takes an unconventional route to build the climax. The movie has just two songs and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy could not impress with the romantic track, Nok Jhok. The title track by Arijit Singh is able to strike all the right chords and it’s totally soul-moving. Background score of the film goes unregistered and could have been better.

Chhapaak makes a bold statement exposing the lenient punishment for the heinous crime of acid-attack. The film  manages to display the pain and also pays time through the journey of recovery!

Chhapaak releases on 10th January, 2020.
