The #MeToo Wave that began in India in 2018 unearthed several unpleasant incidences from behind closed doors. Netflix’s new offering Guilty starring Kiara Advani and Akansha Ranjan Kapoor in main roles is based around the #MeToo movement.
We have all heard these phrases- Why did it take so long for her to speak up? She seems to be an attention seeker who’s just trying to frame him wrongly. Was it consensual sex or rape?
Lots of these questions are answered in Guilty wherein amidst the backdrop of a college in Delhi, a girl from a small town accuses the college heartthrob of sexual assault.
How they approach this subject with sensitivity is what forms the main crux of the story.
In terms of the Beep Meter, the level of nudity and usage of expletives isn’t over-the-top, but the topic is a bit on the dark side plus the fact that they have depicted the drug culture in college, so Netflix has rated the film as suitable for an 18+ audience.
If we speak about the story, it isn’t as interesting as the topic that they’ve chosen. The suspense and the acting performances of all actors are decent. What didn’t really strike a chord with us is the fact that the rape victim’s POV didn’t come across as strongly.
Kiara had a good chance to prove herself with her role, but more emphasis was laid on her character’s styling and look.
Overall, Guilty is just about okay for a one-time watch and our final verdict is Blahworthy!
