Chicken Curry Law Movie Review:
A foreign national, Maya Johnson (Natalia Janoszek), comes to India to build a career but is raped by two politically influential men, Makiya and Nana. Local social activist, Satya Deshmukh (Nivedita Bhattacharya) finds Maya on the Mumbai streets naked and rescues her. Deshmukh contacts lawyer Sitapati Shukla (Ashutosh Rana ) to fight her case.
A lesson on how to let the Meta of your subject go fur in an uljulul (whatever) curry of Jolly LLB and Pink. Creative think think going sink sink.. Feeble script, establishment, scene development. The movie deals with the sensitive issue of rape and here to add to its global reach a foreigner is the victim. Writer Director Shekhar Sirrinn fails in giving his movie a meaning. Ashutosh Rana is the only saving grace, he is just terrific. Natalia Janoszek as Maya is okay. Nivedita Bhattacharya is fantastic. Zakir Hussain had nothing much to do, Makarand Deshpande gets trapped in his eagerness to get the Tamil perfection and the over indulgence harms the character and makes it look like a caricature at places. And did we see Aman Verma?
Chicken Curry Law is a cause of worry for the people involved but it’s a study as well for future filmmakers, it serves as a guide on things to avoid if you want to make a courtroom drama.
