Well this is an amazing story line however I am not happy the way it is being presented. After making movies like Ek Haseena Thi and Johnny Gaddar, Sriram Raghavan is known to make a movie which keeps you interested through out and at the edge of your seat till the end, however Badlapur is a bit dull and dragged you wish the movvie to end quickly. The casting were amazing especially Nawazuddin and Huma Qureshi however Varun Dhawan was far from convincing as per his character, I think people are appreciating him only because of craps he done in past or he is surrounded by superb talents like Nawazuddin, Huma, Vinay and Divya. Nawazuddin was great delight and only reason I am giving three star to this movie. It's an average movie which could have been really made much better.
