No One Killed Jessica Hindi Film Review

This film is based on Jessica Lal murder case.Vidya Balan plays the role of Sabrina Lal, sister of Jessica Lal.Manish the accused is let off by court due to lack of evidence since prime witnesses turned hostile which was enabled by bribe paid by his politician father.A reputed journalist comes across the acquittal and takes up this case and through sting operations expose the foul play behind acquittals.The film looks at how this journalist was able to drum up public support which forces the court to reexamine the case and bring the accused to trial again.

Vidya Balan as Sabrina Lal is perfectly cast.She is able to bring the helplessness of a middle class girl wronged by the justice system to the forefront well.Rani is a disappointment in the role of a journalist.Director wanted to portray her as a tough nut,so he forces her to utter some F words frequently,but it sounds superficial.The trial scene also looked fake and some attempt to generate humor also come unstuck.In spite of these flaws it is a good attempt for a cinematic version of a contemporary incident.The actors who played Sabrina's dad and police inspector have done well

My rating : AVERAGE.
