Review: Chicken Curry Law - Amateurish and Distasteful
Rating: 1/5

Story: Maya Johnson (Natalia Janoszek), a foreign national visits India with an aim to build a career. Everything goes as planned until one unfortunate day where she is raped by Makiya and Nana, two politically influential men. This leaves her scarred and keeping the intensity of the crime in mind, local social activist, Satya Deshmukh (Nivedita Bhattacharya) decides to help her. She rescues Maya upon finding her naked on the streets of Mumbai. She seeks lawyer Sitapati Shukla's (Ashutosh Rana) help to seek justice for Maya, and there begin the courtroom arguments between Shukla and Mutthu Swamy (Makrand Deshpande) about the case, crime and more.

Verdict: The only good aspect for the film is the intent and the message, which unfortunately is not explored well. Despite eminent names like Ashutosh Rana and Makrand Deshpande, the writer and director has presented a film in an extremely poor manner.

With a run time of 126 minutes, the film is entirely cringe worthy.What's disappointing in such a film is the actors trying to make a mark by overacting. While they are expected to carry the film on their shoulders, their work fails to impress. Let alone the script and the dialogues, their portrayal of lawyers is rather hilarious. In a script which in itself has too many 'over-the-top' aspects, both Ashutosh and Makrand deliver awful performances, leaving no scope of entertainment.

To sum it up, naïve writing, silly dialogues and amateurish filming makes Chicken Curry Law seem like a poorly made episode of Crime Patrol.Sigh. What a waste of resources!
