Bollywood: Spectacular acting and gritty realism

Jan 13 2011 Harrow Observer

WHEN you talk about Raj Kumar Gupta, you recall a director who has demonstrated a talent for tackling subjects straight from real life and amassing with clarity a wealth of facts and complex detail.

Tackling this real-life subject straight from the headline makes him the ideal candidate to adapt Sabrina Lal's harrowing account of the murder of her sister Jessica Lal, an aspiring model and a part-time bar tender in his second release and 2011's first release, No One Killed Jessica.

The film starts with the narrative from Meera Gaity's (Rani Mukerjee) outlook on Delhi. Meera is a television journalist who works for NDTV and has just completed one of her most gruelling assignments as a reporter in the war zone. She is famous, she is fearless and she is determined. But her qualities never impress her to pursue the story of Jessica Lal's murder.

Jessica (Myrah) was brutally killed at a nightclub, where she served drinks. When she refused alcohol to one customer, Manish (Mohammed Ayub), he took out a gun and shot her.

Enter Sabrina (Vidya Balan), Jessica's elder sister. Heartbroken but firm, level-headed and calm, she leaves no stone unturned to bring Jessica's murderer to justice. But things don't go according to plan for Meera and Sabrina.

Witnesses turn hostile and Meera isn't interested in leading the story further. What follows is a complex, layered and methodical approach to two women's fight for righteousness and for survival.

One of the most difficult aspects of making a movie for a film-maker is when the story has an horrific ending, especially when it's true. Such is the case with No One Killed Jessica. Raj Kumar Gupta's approach to his second film is almost as close to reality as one can get. Filming in many of the actual locations, he captures the chaotic commotion of a

Delhi overwhelmed by people. He shoots almost exclusively in natural light, cameras handheld, capturing action in long, continuous takes.

It is as if we are there. As a director, he has made us believe that the most frightening horror stories come from the real world, every day.

He has given the best start to 2011 and we hope the others follow it up with equal gusto.

Performances are spectacular. Vidya Balan is at her career best in one of the most difficult roles for a female actress. She fills Sabrina with a wonderful mixture of power and hope tempered by reality and preparation for the worst.

Vidya also delivers one of the most horrific, gut-wrenching scenes I have witnessed on a film screen. Just after she goes to her sister Jessica's burial in the graveyard, she cries out loud after Meera hands her the letter signifying that justice is done.

It's one of those scenes that you can still hear just thinking about it some time later.

Rani Mukerjee delivers a gifted performance - a role so strong that you actually feel like pursuing a career in journalism. A woman hell bent on giving justice to Jessica and Sabrina, Rani Mukerjee proved with her role of Meera that it is not about comebacks in the film industry. It's just about doing a role with obsession.

The supporting cast is excellent, but special praise goes to Jessica's role played by newcomer Myrah. It shows that talent in the Indian film industry is in abundance. Equally to the role of the policeman, Jessica's killer and the prime witness, played by Rajesh Sharma, Mohammed Ayub and Neil Bhoopalam respectively.

No One Killed Jessica is a moving statement about facing the worst humanity can offer and refusing to give up. The film deserves a place alongside the best true of the stories that have been made, which seek to recreate a shattering time in our recent history.
