Grade-A: <em>Wah! Kya Film Hai ☺ ☺

A decade ago, the cold blooded murder of an aspiring model Jessica Lall, in the view of more than 300 people, and the accused walking away Scot free, shook the very foundations of the justice system of our nation. The memory of this scintillating murder faded away with time, but has now been refreshed by director Raj Kumar Gupta, through the flick ‘No One Killed Jessica’.

April 29, 1999 a bullet fired from a shotgun at point blank range, killed Jessica on the spot, leaving the on-lookers stunned. The accused Manu Sharma, the pampered son of a leading Politician, brought doom on himself when he considered a human life cheaper than his drink. Money exchanged hands and the evidence was made to disappear at a crucial time. The witnesses when contacted, opted for a safe route, reeling out orchestrated statements..“I’m not too sure” or “I left at 12“. This left Jessica’s 22 year old sister Sabrina (Vidya Balan) thirsting more for justice. Manu was set free in 2006, inspiring a newspaper headline that read ‘No One Killed Jessica’. This sentence lead to the re opening of the case.

Awakened at dawn by a telephone call, the bespectacled, unglamorous Sabrina was in for a rude shock- HER SISTER’S GRUESOME MURDER. Sabrina runs from pillar to post seeking justice for her sister, not knowing the ways of money and power. She completely dominates the first half of the movie fighting for justice and taking care of her heart broken parents.

Introducing Rani Mukherjee as Mira, a head strong and catty reporter, who initially lacked interest in the murder, thinking it to be an open and shut case. She later takes complete charge of it as she felt justice had been denied and she couldn’t live with it.

The death of Sabrina’s mom and her dad being hospitalized led to Sabrina giving up hope. On the other hand, Mira was hell bent upon bringing the buried case to light. Through the media she evoked the entire nation and after a prolonged battle of eleven years, on 19 April 2010, the Supreme Court of India approved the life sentence for the guilty.

No one killed jessica takes on different aspects of reality, not excluding the F word and the desi G word. Rani Mukherjee was shown puffing on smokes. There was a touch of humor with the murder’s mother’s constantly whining “mere Monu ko kucch nahin hona chahiye” and Rani mouthing profanity. The flick was crisp and to the point. The movie is a spot on winner with Rani and Vidya doing complete justice to their respective roles. Amit Trivedi’s music, particularly the ‘Dilli Dilli’ number, stands out from the rest.

Gupta’s film portrays the fragile justice system of the nation, the power of the media and the influence of money, out-weighing problems. No One Killed Jessica is a film that everyone but kids below 18 must watch.

  1. Actually I think you will find salmaan and Vivek both broke up with long term partners to get with aish!!

    And my fangs are not long as I would like them to be but Nisha darling jodhaa Akbar was released in 2008 – a long time ago and since then all her movies have flopped except robot – which if you read things properly I did mention above!!!

    And Coz I disagree with stuff you all say it’s only a matter of time before neharika blocks me even though she never blocks all the people that use foul language and disgusting language on this site

    1. Like “Zizi” the grandmama of the trolls (along with the Bestyle and RN characters) went anywhere. Your latest generation of hatchlings are really taking a beating, huh? Is that why you came out of your pit? To “friend” them, and defend them? How sad.

    2. really Zaara/Zizi There is a whole difference between marriage and boyfriend/girlfriend thing, either way I never heard about Salman having any long term partner before Aishwarya?Was it some guy?lol!either way fly back to the toy chest!This character’s 15 mins of fame were up a long time ago ,it was a dud than and it still is!

  2. The bollywood celebden site has become a site for childish games which is indeed sad for the web master. If we are going to debate who is better Aishwarya or Rani ? Here are the facts Aishwarya is the more beautiful one, the Rani fans will not even debate this. Now for the box office Aishwarya has two movies Dhoom 2 & Jodha Abkbar that are among the Top 30 highest grossing movies of all time. Rani does not have any movies that are included. There is no way you can compare Rani to the goddess &diva Aishwarya. If anyone needs more facts just ask me.

    1. im sorry you definately dont know anything about these two women… Dhoom 2 and Jodha was not a hit due to Aishwarya rai… maybe you didn’t read the trade reports… the credit has purely gone to Hrithik for Jodha and Hrithik and Abhi for Dhoom… I do agree… I think she’s absolutely beautiful… however acting wise… I thnk she’s the worst… did you watch Action Reply?
      And rani had four flops in a four year span…. Aishwarya rai had four flops in one year. She’s 38 years old. I think she should stick with endorsements because shes good in that industry… acting wise not really. And rani mmukherjee may not have had the highest box office hits… however… each and every of her movie has made an impact on the audience… whether it be her second film Mehndi to Hum Tum, to Black to Laaga and now the most awesome movie NOKJ.
      Aishwarya rai hasn’t made such an impact except in Hum Dil De.. what else? All her movies have been forgettable.

      1. Of course to the Celebden troll, HDDCS was the only worthwhile Aishwarya movie. You are so transparent.

        And Aishwarya isn’t 38, a fact that you know very well. Aishwarya had the BIGGEST hit of 2010, how many did Rani Mukherji have?

        1. IM SORRY WHATT?!!?!??!
          SHE ACTUALLY HAD A HIT IN 2010 out of those movies?? GIVE ME a reference to believe what you just said.. and please dont waste your time telling me Robot was a hit cause of her… and it’s better to not have a movie come out than to have a flop….

          http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0706787/
          born in 1973… do the math.

          1. Troll, why are you wasting your time pretending that Endhiran was not the biggest hit? And why are you wasting your time trying to imagine that she’s not in the movie when she is the heroine? If you can think of a Rajnikanth movie WITH A DIFFERENT HEROINE that did better at the box office, enlighten us all.

            And troll, why are you wasting your time pretending not to know that Aishwarya celebrated her 37th birthday just a few months ago? Of course you were busy trolling Celebden on that day so you should remember it clearly…

        2. IM SORRY WHATT?!!?!??!
          SHE ACTUALLY HAD A HIT IN 2010 out of those movies?? GIVE ME a reference to believe what you just said.. and please dont waste your time telling me Robot was a hit cause of her… and it’s better to not have a movie come out than to have a flop….

    AN A+ MOVIE.

  4. i m a fuckin bangladeshi whore i want 2 fuck SHINE Neal Patel Mystic river subh n singh is king bruno my fat pussy is aching 4 a big juicy cock. remember bitch i used to go by Bolly Fan. i want usman’s fat penis

  5. No One Killed Jessica ROCKS ….:) …….everything is ok with dis movie .. .. Great performance from rani and Vidya …as expected……they r really saving grace for bollywood in between soo many beautiful but talentless actress…

    1. Ha, ha, ha … have you watch it? Boring is the last thing this film is. Dear Nishaji go and watch the movie before giving youe expert comment.

      1. Ha ha not everyone is a nut job like “Kareena ” who has alot free time on their hands to go watch flop movies, why don’t you take all your flop puppet characters with you to watch the movie, all of them might be happy to get fresh air, now trot along before the sunrises because I heard vampires should stay out of the sun!

      2.

  6. Let’s face it you might label her short, ugly, even she is branded a slut by drongos on this sight – but she has pulling power and her movies are hits!

    Yes most actors have flops – even the mighty Akshay and SRK have films that do not do well

    But she released no movies in 2010 and the favourite of this site aishwariya released 5 (including the ravaan Tamil version) out of which only robot did well (that too because of rajnikant pulling power)

    So my guessing is rani did not have a good year in 2009 but then again Aishwariyas pink panther came and went without anyone noticing either!!! So they are on a par with each other

    As for the slut comments aishwariya has done her share of messing around – salmaan, then Vivek and then baby b – as has rani with govinda and the aditya chopra!

    Whether she marries chopra or not if you are calling her names then you would have to say the same to actresses like nargis, hema, Sridevi etc these have all fallen for married men and married them – rani has not married him yet but i expect she will just like a million others before her!!

    But at the moment movie hit hogayi!!!!!!!

    1. oh this “Zizi” character came out of the woodwork to bash Ash, again,your comments are lame!Salman, Vivek and Abhishek were all unmarried,Govinda and Aditya Chopra are not,guess none of the single guys want that old aunty Rani, As for flops Singh is King is right Rani has been giving all flops, but Aishwarya’s Robot and Jodha Akbar have been hits of the last couple of years, the writing is on the wall Rani stinks and Ash rules so fly back to your toy chest because this Zizi character is a FLOP, your fangs are sure growing because people think Rani stinks.

      1. yo motherfucker . any man with a fuckin penis can tell u tht aishwarya is a babe. while tht bitch rani does nthing 4 me.

    2. Well, what can I add after this … very well said dear Zizi. 100% agree with you.
      The FACT is the movie is REALLY good. Hit for Rani and Vidya. Must watch!

      1. What a pathetic excuse for an answer, troll. Your Rani is a homewrecker, pointing fingers at Aishwarya will not change facts.

    3. wht the fuck is u r problem u ugly as> bitch??? tht fuckin fat as> tramp rani is shit. u wnt to talk shit abt aishwarya. everyone knws ugly chics like ugly chics tht look like them .so u mst be some fuckin ugly as> hood rat go get ur self laid fat as>.

    4. dude you’re amaaazing zizi!! you deserve a standing ovation! no one could have said it better than you! i think if we knew each other… we would be best friends :D

    5. bitch will u lick my torn pussy. i will eat you out.u n me can eat rani out than. i want u to cum in my face. i wanna lick your vagina

  9. Hello Mr. Adesai!!!!! first of all i just hate your name ADESAI, and now it’s even more disgusting after i read your comment. I read both Indiafm’s review & Yahoo India’s review and i don find any similarity….. If you don understand what you are reading… you better keep your mouth shut.

    Neharika you rocks… keep it up…..

    1. and you think I would like to comment on you BRUNO JEFFERSON? I think that says enough about you. go do your research… im from the US you loser. I bet i can read better than you for sure. get a life.

      1. yo motherfucker i knw we gt into it a few mnths ago. fucker no one gives a shit abt ur dumb as> comments. go fuck urself.

        1. I’m Neal Patel the Uncle Toad!
          I am too big. Too big by far. Pity me.
          My eyes bulge and hurt.
          I leap from 1 pond 2 another looking for Ash’s “poo”. When I can’t find it I squat in a quiet corner. I squat and squat until I shit my own “poo”. Then I eat my poo coz I’m so big and forever hungry. Pity me. Pity me.

          1. Hey Neal Patel I can’t believe it that u r a toad! Wowwwwwwwww! Oh I’m also a nice beautiful female toad. But I’m a fatso! Will u lend me your long-legged underwear?? I wanna go swimming yaar but my underwear got burst by Lizzy. Her panties were torn so she borrowed my “toadie” underwear. But woe me, that lizzy is another fatty fatty. She’s the plumpiest lizard I’ve ever seen and and and…her huge huge bottom ripped my under-wear apart. Hey Neal Patel let me borrow uor under- pliz. Don’t worry I’ll lick it clean after using it.

          2. using my name again”Bestyled” ?like I said before , you can use my name but you will still never me, I know you wish you could be and your obsessed with me , but sorry you got accept your you, be proud and own it regardless of however unattractive and haggard you are!

          3. you say your Neal but when I clicked your profile box, it says “Bipasha” ,hmmmm isn’t that the same ding dong character that said “she looks better than Ash” on the Aishwarya makes a comeback on stage post and Kitty replied back by saying”sounds like something Bestyled said before” busted again!what a loser!

  10. hey i read both d reviews bt cud not find ne similarities. as for the review on this site i gues it was a fair depictn of the movie.

    1. You are right Lizzy, you are absolutely so right. You say she is ugly right but still her movie is a hit. She is a proven actor in acting even though she is ugly people go watch her movies. She should make more flops, kind a like someone someone we all know and you love. Wah Kya Baat Hai Tumhari! You always say just the right things. Wah Wah!

      1. Zaara/Zizi don’t do your devious comments on Ash ok, your getting itchy again? what hits does Rani have in the last 3 years? Like I said before why was Rani not in the Filmfare most powerful actress list? All the beautiful and popular actresses like Ash, Kareena, Priyanka, Deepika and Katrina were there , but Rani was NOT!

    2. Lizzy the Lazy Lizard without her tail…..OLD STRUDEL,CHANGING DIAPER,POISON APPLES ,GRANDPA , GRANDMA ,KITTY FLYING….TROLLS……..why the same dish everyday….? serve us something newwwwww….plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

      1. oppss…..sorry its nt kity flying…my mistake….and Troll is copyrighted by Kitty not by lizzy the lazy lizard ….sorry again…. ;)

      2. hey Mystic_River why are you always picking on Lizzy and Kitty?what you don’t like apples or Trolls? lol, now lizzy is a lizard? hmmm wasn’t that copyrighted by the “Basher”! you obviously do like some trolls though a.ka Rani, eewwwww , don’t tell me you think she is pretty!

      3. Thanx a lot! Well said! Dis long Loony lizard Lizzy is alwaz prowling on dis site. She’s ill-literate u know dat’s why she alwaz uses da same vocabs! Mayb she doesn’t have enough time to learn new words coz shez alwaz buzy mopping the floor on her fours with her lizardy tongue wiping da “poo” dat Ash drops every other second wherever she takes her smelly arse!

      4. dude fuck me hard . I m a bangladeshi whore. i sell my body 2 the highest bidder. fuck me in my torn up worn out pussy
