It’s not often that one gets to see viewers exiting cinema halls in pin-drop silence. This is the reaction we saw on the faces of spectators who exited a multiplex after watching the first show of Pink. The movie left them thinking and almost everyone left with a heavy heart with lots of questions swirling in their minds.
And the man of the moment for everyone was Amitabh Bachchan. The megastar in his role as a lawyer left one and all stunned. Said a viewer, “Bachchan saab like always was excellent in his role. It is so commendable to see him doing such different roles in every film that he takes on.”
Said another viewer, “Through this movie Bachchan saab has said what he always believed in. The movie is an eye-opener and it makes us think and the kind of male gaze that women are subjected to in daily lives.”
The sensitive treatment of the subject also came for special praise from audience and so did the performances of the three female leads in the movie. “Taapsee and Kirti were brilliant in their roles and so was Andrea,” opined another viewer.

On the unfortunate side was the slim attendance for the morning show with just a dozen of people attending the first show. But on the positive side was that each and everyone who attended looked moved after watching Pink.
It remains to be seen how well the movie will pick up both among multiplex and single screen viewers.
