Editorial Reviews

On April 29, 1999 a shot was fired from a .22 bore pistol whose loud reverberations lasted over a decade. The shot that killed a vivacious, aspiring model Jessica Lall was fired in the presence of more than 100 socialites present at a party in New Delhi. Yet, accused Manu Sharma walked free in 2006 prompting a newspaper headline that read No One Killed Jessica. In the ensuing decade, Venod Sharma, father of the accused and a high profile congress leader, paid millions of rupees to silence witnesses. It was not until the Tehelka Magazine did a sting investigation and Star News aired the footage that justice was finally served.

In 1999, model Jessica Lall was shot in the head and killed at a party in New Delhi for refusing to serve a drink to Manu Sharma, a spoiled playboy and son of a powerful politician. Despite numerous eye-witnesses, Manu eventually was found not guilty. The reason? The politician father and his cronies conspired to manipulate evidence and witnesses. The verdict resulted in massive demonstrations ("Justice for Jessica!") and an eventual reconsideration of the case. Manu finally was sentenced to life imprisonment for this crime.

In No One Killed Jessica, this story is embellished and fleshed out. Some parts are certainly fictionalized. It's a 2 hour event, with Bollywood melodrama, extended background songs, and final victory. However, it is also a film with exceptional acting (particularly Vidya Balan and
Rani Mukerji), a real edge-of-the-seat plot, and true drama. Even though the story is incredibly sad, this was a very enjoyable film to watch.

Victory to the people! Justice for Jessica!

In Hindi and English, with subtitles as necessary. On the downside, I found the subtitles hard to read (size and contrast).

In a scene from this film, a policeman confesses to Sabrina Lall, played by Vidya Balan that he accepted a bribe for not beating up a suspect. As the camera pans, her face registers shock. The astounded policeman asks her `' Just what kind of world do you live in, everyone takes bribes'' This is one of the many remarkable scenes in `No one Killed Jessica' about a sensational murder but also about an ordinary family seeking justice while being run over by the entire law machinery and bureaucrats. No one Killed Jessica is about a real life incident that happened in India in 1999 when a aspiring model Jessica(Myra) was shot in the head for refusing to serve drinks to an inebriated son of a cabinet minister. Politicians and their kin routinely get away with such transgressions in India, however this was supposed to be an open and shut case as the execution took place a crowded party attended by hundreds of people. The court tried the case but as each of these witnesses turned hostile, the killers got away and a nation was shocked. A sting operation which revealed confessions finally nailed the killers after many years. Raj Kumar Gupta the director takes this familiar story and the adds the whodunit element to it. Under his skillful direction, the events remain fresh and he continues to show the promise that he displayed with Aamir. The script could have been a wee bit tighter but still a great film. Almost all the cast is comprised of fresh faces except the two main leads, Rani and Vidya, and they act well. Rani plays her most outrageous role in her career, she gets to swear, smoke and have sex but I thought this over the top act was at best okay. I thought Vidya Balan, turned in a great performance and deserves all the applause. Her role is understated and dignified, and full of incredible range. I loved the scene when she starts laughing uncontrollably in a court room scene. Four stars for this one. 2/14/11

A powerful politician's son literally gets away with murder until a determined reporter gets involved. No Bollywood song-and-dance here -- this is a gripping tale of outlandish corruption and determined human spirit, made even more compelling because it really happened. NOTE: this film requires at least a slight interest in India or foreign cultures in general. If you like your dramas with square-jawed Western heroes and in familiar surroundings, this may not be for you. But the acting and directing here are absolutely first-class and can be appreciated by anyone with a little curiosity.

Based on the real life incident of Jessica Lall's murder, NOKJ had already generated enough buzz and curiosity. The remaining kasar was completed by the OTT promotions, which also saw Rani Mukherjee and Vidya Balan kiss (literally) and make up! This is also Rani's comeback movie of sorts.

It's not an easy task making a film on a story that has been extensively covered and followed by the media; but director Rajkumar Gupta (of AAMIR fame) does that immaculately. He blends fact and fiction with precision, which results in an entertaining outcome.

The innovative title sequence involving newspaper headlines, along with Delhi's introduction sets the tempo right. Jessica's murder, deftly portrayed by Rajkumar Gupta, is disturbing. At the same time, it evokes fury for Manish. The film shows how people, when united and unwavering, can bring about change. The use of brazen language shown in the film is palpable and never gets offensive.
