Chhapaak released on 10th January, 2020. The movie received mixed reviews from critics. While some praised Deepika Padukone’s performance, some wrote that Meghana Gulzar couldn’t really convey the emotions, like she did in Raazi.
Ranveer Singh, husband of Deepika Padukone couldn’t control his emotion after watching the film and wrote a long note. It almost sounded like his review for the film.
Here you can read it fully,
“Meghna, your film gives the audience hope and courage. It shows you the best and worst of humanity in a kaleidoscopic cinematic spectrum. It elucidates a subject that we’ve only ever heard of but never really fully understood. It offers a definitive and insightful deep-dive into the horrific gamut of acid violence. The story shakes you to your core and then lifts you heroically until your emotions soar. Talvar, Raazi and now Chhapaak..may I say “Bravo!” And “Encore!”
“My baby. I’ve witnessed you toil relentlessly to create this special piece of work. You’ve been an engine behind the project, and are the soul of the film. This is the most important instalment in your body of work. You laboured with such honesty in intent and action. You dug deep and fought through your challenges, faced your fears, overcame your struggles and today you and your team stand triumphant as the creators of one of the films of our times. Your performance is way more than everything I thought it could and would be. It’s moved me, stirred me and stayed with me.
“You blended strength with vulnerability and lent dignity to an immensely complex portrayal in such a fine manner that I’m simply awestruck at your craft. Its staggering and astonishing what you’ve achieved with Malti. A glowing gem in your repertoire. I love you baby. I’ve never been more proud of you. @deepikapadukone #chhapaak”
Just for the gist of it, Ranveer was truly touched by Lakshmi’s story and he is happy that DP tried to make film that resounds with latest times. Movie is based on acid attack survivor Lakshmi’s real life story.
