Heartbreaking, heartbreaking and motivating, these are the first feelings you have when you see the progress of the Chhapaak of Meghna Gulzar. Starring Deepika Padukone as Malti, a survivor of an acid attack, Chhapaak takes him through the phases of shame, accusation and trial in the victim's court in the life of a girl. We see the callousness that a survivor has to face when asked about a heinous crime like this. They leave you empathic for Malti in the first seconds.
Continuing, we are introduced to Malti after her surgery and she is struggling to get used to her new appearance. Judgment, prejudice and fear, the trailer goes from a cry for help to a story of hope in just a minute. We see a strong Malti fighting against wind and tide. The film also stars Vikrant Massey, who plays the ray of hope in Malti's life and the chemistry of Deepika and Vikrant, although unconventional, it seems something we will surely enjoy
The Chhapaak trailer has only left us hoping for a brilliant movie next year.
