Vakeel Saab movie Download- How do you repurpose a powerful and gripping story about women into an over-the-top star vehicle in which the hero towers over everything else? Vakeel Saab provides a masterclass. The film is a remake of the 2016 starter Pink, in which three single working women in New Delhi find themselves terrorised by educated but entitled goons, cops and lawyers. That film was an indictment of patriarchy and the shackling of women in archaic stereotypes.
Through the character of the retired lawyer Deepak Sehgal, played with bruised majesty by Amitabh Bachchan, director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, creative producer Shoojit Sircar and writer Ritesh Shah delivered a potent message about sexual consent – that no matter the circumstances, no means no.
Vakeel Saab also gets to this crucial point. But the focus isn’t on the three girls whose lives are shattered after a night out, which ends with one of them breaking a bottle on the head of a man who is trying to sexually assault her. In this telling, the girls are merely the instigation for the titular Vakeel Saab to roar back into action in the way that the murder of the two young boys in Master propelled J.D. to straighten his act, quit alcohol and go into avenging-angel mode. vakeel Saab movie download
Interestingly, Vakeel Saab is also a drinker. In fact, he carries a hip flask, which is marked ‘Medicine’. We’re told that intoxication is the only way to keep him in control. This concept of the high-functioning alcoholic seems to be a male preserve – I can’t recall a single woman onscreen knocking back drinks but also coming up aces.
We’re told that Vakeel Saab has a manufacturing defect – that he cannot abide injustice and he always stands up for the weak. His name, in case you still haven’t figured out his moral compass, is Satya. And he is played by Power Star Pawan Kalyan in full showboating, over-the-top glory. vakeel Saab movie download
Pink was also remade in Tamil as Nerkonda Paarvai. In that film, superstar Ajith played the lawyer. I haven’t seen it so I don’t know how much the casting altered the story but here it completely throws the film off-balance. Director Venu Sriram, who has also adapted the script, flattens out the more complex ideas of Pink into the palatable masala, which serves the larger-than-life image of Pawan Kalyan. Unlike the original, the girls don’t meet the boys at a rock concert, which perhaps suggests a more uninhibited setting. Here they are stranded on a deserted road.
