We last saw the lovely Sanya Malhotra in Dangal, playing this robust female, wanting to win Gold for our country. Here, In Pataakha, she’s robust and raging, but her aim is not to win Gold, but to make sure that she gets rid of her sister, played by Radhika Madan.
With Pataakha, director Vishal Bharadwaj seems to weave a tale of these two young girls who are bound to remain with one another no matter how much hatred they may have for the other. And in this process, he highlights the power of women and the cult and revolution they can and will be, if and when brought together.
Both Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan, who play sisters, seem to deliver their cent percent and you can almost see the sweat and blood they’ve put into the making of this film.
