Director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury's Bollywood movie "Pink", starring Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang, has garnered positive reviews from the audience.
"Pink" is a courtroom drama and the court room scenes in the film are inspired from 1988 Hollywood film "The Accused." Ritesh Shah has written the story and screenplay for the movie, which is about Minal Arora (Taapsee Pannu), Falak Ali (Kirti Kulhari) and Andrea (Andrea Tariang) as working professionals staying together as tenants in a posh South Delhi locality.
One night, Rajveer (Angad Bedi) invites the three girls for dinner at a resort. He and his friends get drunk and try to molest the girls. Minal smashes a bottle on the eye of Rajveer, who files a wrong case against the girls, labelling them prostitutes. How lawyer Deepak Sehgall (Amitabh Bachchan), who is suffering from a bipolar disorder, fights the girls' case against these influential boys forms the crux of the story.
The audience say "Pink" has an interesting story and gripping screenplay. Aniruddha Roy successfully manages to hold the attention of the film goers, right from the beginning till the end of the movie. Ritesh Shah's brilliant script, which makes the film a thriller, is the main highlight of the movie.
Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang have delivered good performances, which are also highlights of "Pink." Supporting artistes Piyush Mishra, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Angad Bedi, Tushar Pandey, Raashul Tandon and Vijay Verma have done justice to their roles and that supports the storyline in a big way, say the audience.
Rashmi Sharma and Shoojit Sircar have bankrolled "Pink" under the banner of Rashmi Sharma Telefilms Limited and it has rich production values. Brilliant picturisation and amazing background score are the attractions on the technical front, say the viewers. We bring you some filmgoers' verdict shared on Twitter. Here is the live update of "Pink" movie review by audience:

Watched #Pink... Shocked. Stunned. Speechless... An OUTSTANDING movie in every respect... Taut writing and exemplary direction... #Pink is relevant... Raises pertinent questions... Exposes double standards... Mirrors harsh reality... Hits you like a ton of bricks... Take a bow, director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury... You are a master storyteller... Like to single out courtroom sequences, esp post-interval... #Pink is embellished with bravura performances: Taapsee, knockout act... Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang are superb... Angad Bedi excels... #Pink is yet another sparkling performance in Sr Bachchan's illustrious career... He is in terrific form... Final word: DON'T MISS IT!

#PINK - The film...just go watch it. You will not be the same person after watching it. Kind of speechless right now. I might be crying too Quite rarely does a film engrosses you so much that you don't want to talk to anyone because you want to absorb it. #PINK did that to me :-)
#Pink is intense, emotional, riveting & indisputably one of the finest film of the year. Critics are right & everyone is going to love Pink. Excellent performances only regret that BigB was never believable. But Dhritiman Chatterji as judge took court scenes to another level #Pink
Vikas Agarwal @VikasAgarwalll
Long story put short, #PINK is in an altogether different orbit and easily the best movie of this millenium.

.#Pink is not a film.It is a gripping story n as each page is flipped through,u get more n more engrossed in compelling emotional narrative. Director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury isn't keen on giving u xpected twists n turns or thrills. Even the interval is regular but v Poignant #Pink. A taut clever screenplay n masterly direction makes 4 compelling cinema n #Pink scores v highly over there.U'd always b interested. Always! Kirti Kulhari is brilliant.Her vulnerability n yet the ability 2 rise 2 d challenge will keep u gulping amazement. HATS OFF!! #Pink. Taapsee is a sharp bolt but not out of d blue. She's terrific as a wronged girl who can also b 'questionable' n that makes her so Real #Pink. If it's Amitabh Bachchan,rest assured u r always in 4 a surprise.He shocks u wid his vulnerability n stuns u wid ferocious cleverness #Pink. #Pink is v well written,high on technical efficiency, great performances,n masterfully executed n it makes 4 terrific cinema. DO NOT MISS!
