Director Meghna Gulzar's Bollywood movie "Talvar", which released in theatres around the world on Gandhi Jayanthi (2 October), has received extremely positive reviews from the audiences.
"Talvar" is a murder mystery thriller film, which has been written by Vishal Bhardwaj and directed by Meghna Gulzar. The film is based on the 2008 Noida double murder case, in which a teenage girl and her family servant were found murdered and her parents were convicted for the murders. The movie deals with three contradictory accounts of the case, which variously portray the parents as guilty or innocent.
Produced by Junglee Pictures, "Talvar" stars Irrfan Khan, Konkona Sen Sharma, Neeraj Kabi and Sohum Shah in the lead roles. Tabu has made a guest appearance in it. All the actors have delivered wonderful performance, but Irrfan steals the show, say the audience, who have watched the movie.
After watching "Talvar", many film goers took to their Twitter pages to share their verdict on the movie. All of them say that the movie has an interesting story and engrossing screenplay, which is the first hero of the film. It is an edge of the seat thriller and it is a must-watch flick, say the viewers.
Here is the live update of 'Talvar' movie review by audience:

A story based on assumption or a true story, #Talvar is an excellent creation with minor faults. But I enjoyed every bit of it. #Talvar made me remember DB's Shanghai. Few parts were so heavy that I was glued. @irrfan_k like always carried all the way. Brilliant cast
#Talvar is a well-made, well acted, intriguing, smart procedural flick. And a timely reminder of the chilling reality it portrays.

Jus back from #Talvar Movie s well presented in all angles.Its all about the assumption we make which makes us decide who did the murder
Sajan Gupta @sharewithsajan
#Talvar is well rounded,well performed & a very well made film.loved it for the simplicity wth which it provokes thought & discomfort.

Saw #Talvar months back but its chilling portrait of our Kafkaesque system has haunted me since. No horror film can be scarier. Brilliant. Can't say this about many films but #Talvar could save lives of a couple of innocents. Hope it provokes outrage, forces change. Go watch.
@meghnagulzar Truly appreciate the spirit behind #Talvar. Very hard to digest d fact that v hav an absolutely rotten police/judiciary system
Nitesh Kamath @nk_amath
Surreal to live in jal Vayu Vihar Noida, cross the house in Sector 25 and go to see Talvar @JungleePictures @konkonas @bharadwajvishal eerie @raogajraj You were brilliant in #Talvar . I can say that cause I've gone to Sec 20 police stn many times and you played the part.

#Talvar ko dekha aur iski dhaar ko bhi. Last 13 mins alone worth d ticket. Irrfan ki tareef nahi karenge. @NotSoSnob fullhouse ki badhai ;) Curse of the second half toh kayi baar hota hai par gift of the second half aaj bade din baad dikha. #Talvar

It's such a satisfaction to watch a well researched, well written and very well made film. Congrats @NotSoSnob @vishesh @HoneyTrehan #Talvar
#Talvar a double edged sword which leans towards the accused but raises imp questions @irrfan_k steals the scene @meghnagulzar well done
#Talvar has a great cast for a decent docu-drama, which doesn't dig much into the original case. And has few issues. In comparison, I think #Rahasya (inspired from the same case) was way better than the #Talvar. Do check that out first. #YKW

#Talvar-Meghna Gulzar's best film so far,this one takes a hard hitting but rational approach towards looking @ the Aarushi Talwar. #Talvar-Do watch,its surely gonna impact you some way or the other !
Saw #Talvar last night,it's pretty slow, 135 minutes, gives ringside view of all possibilities from every suspects angle & police wrongs
