The Murder of a college girl morphed into a suicide takes Dr. Shiv on a journey to dig the truth out of his daughter’s murder.Halahal 2020 full Movie Download.
Yusuf, brusque and violent and greedy, represents its new cannibalistic version. Which makes sense, because the scam at the centre of this story — of “management” seats in medical colleges, involving politicians, cops, coaching institutes, professors — emerges from the very insatiable hunger of the Indian middle-class, which can pay any price for their kids’ success. Some costs, however, are more unaffordable than others.
The film tells a dark, unsettling story — replete with murders and misdirection and betrayals — but the screenplay (by Gibran Noorani) is quite level-headed. Even amid tense plot turns, it springs scenes of absurd humour, illuminating the social milieu, revealing character and power dynamics.
It never loses sight of a significant aside, imbuing the film with notable pathos: of a father battling the loss of his daughter. Khedekar turns in an impressive performance — his demeanour marked by haunting desperation and relentless pleas, looking for a clue that’ll open a door, offer some answer, anything, something. Shiv, of course, wants to nail the perpetrators, but this investigation also gives him something else, the most potent weapon against grief: a sense of purpose.
The makers do not depict Yusuf as a simplistic, corrupt cop, either. As he and Shiv become familiar, we get Yusuf’s backstory; it’s neither elaborate nor dramatic but provides enough context to see him as a complex person — someone waking up to the true extent of state corruption and the realisation that he may have been an unwitting accomplice all along. The best segment of the story, even though short-lived, centres on their joint investigative effort, where they bring their professional experiences to assemble the missing pieces. Khedekar and Sobti’s chemistry — a blend of old and new, a doctor and a cop — is marked by distinct novelty and charm, a bond that adds dimensions to this thriller, turning it tender, subverting our expectations.
