Irada is a new Hindi thriller feature film that released on Feb 17th. Watched it yesterday. The main incentive as always having Naseeruddin in the lead. It also stars Arshad Warsi and I have also liked him in non-comic roles, especially his Sehar in 2005. It is interesting that he never got serious roles after that.
The movie was directed by Aparnaa Singh and produced by Falguni Patel and Prince Soni. Written by Aparnaa Singh and Anushka Rajan it also stars Divya Dutta, Sharad Kelkar and Sagarika Ghatge in important roles.
The movie is about eco-terrorism and the impacts of waste and contamination and the fight for the well being of people. A mysterious bomb blast in a factory prompts the state CM (played by Divya Dutta) to hire an NIA officer played by Arshad Warsi. He meets an ex-army man (played by Naseer) who is seeking revenge for his dead daughter and a journalist (Sagarika Ghatge) demanding justice for her slain boyfriend.
Neeraj Pandey’s Wednesday had created such an impact that when ever we see Naseer in a role that deals set in a political cop movie we are reminded of his role in Wednesday. It is unfair to the new movies as Wednesday stands at a special position for movie lovers.
Arshad Warsi I felt was doing a bit of over acting. May be it is tough to be realistic in front of Naseer. I think it is a decent movie, even though not a movie that you might remember for years.
