Badlapur is a revenge saga revolving around Raghu (Varun Dhawan) who waits 15 years to avenge the murder of his wife (Yami Gautam) and child. The tagline a�?Dona��t miss the beginninga�� rings true literally, as the first few minutes of the film are critical and terrifically portrayed. Coming from a master storyteller, it has amazing performances by the actors and excellent cinematography. Solid moments and a gripping storyline make it something you cannot miss. a��TI

Cast: Reese Witherspoon,
Based on the 2012 book Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, Cheryl Strayed (Witherspoon) heads out on a gruelling 1,100-mile hike. To shake off her troubles which include a divorce and death of her mother (Dern), she plans to trek from the border of Mexico right up to the Canadian border to clear her mind. Witherspoona��s portrayal of the lost yet determined lady lives up to her Oscar nomination. But the plot, though powerful, loses a bit of steam
as the end draws to a close.
