      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express [The film] should have made for cracking drama. But Ankur Arora Murder Case never really gets there, suffering from banal script-and story-telling, and amateurish acting. Rated: 2/5 Mar 20, 2019 Full Review Anna M.M. Vetticad annavetticadgoes2themovies AAMC (...) seems to have compromised on a potentially hard-hitting story in the interests of what old-fashioned film folk describe as “commercial” demands. Rated: 2/5 Jan 15, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Great movie inspired by true events. Touching! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review flixster f If Spoiler Alert is needed, feel free to have it. No objection from my end. Director: Sohail Tatari Writer: Vikram Bhatt Stars: Tisca Chopra, Paoli Dam, Arjun Mathu From Wiki: "Ankur Arora Murder Case is a 2013 Bollywood medical thriller film directed by Suhail Tatari and written by Vikram Bhatt. The film takes up an urgent and disturbing issue of death during surgery and is based on a real-life incident where a boy dies on the operation table due to medical negligence. The shooting of the film started after nearly one year of research and similarities to real life are in this case, not coincidental." What's written below is void of law and, more specifically, order. Some of the critics have complained that the title reveals a bit too much. Given the way it's executed, I don't think so. Had it been in a way that facts get disclosed as the case proceeds, the title might have requited to be different. This movie, based on real events, shows how a renowned doctor's medical negligence was actually a murder. While the performance are okay, the story is executed a bit too conventionally. The love story of two interns, and then their break-up, an illegitimate relationship between the concerned lawyers, and eventually their break-up, finding the nurse and her changing the testimony, etc..... However, I was taken aback when they didn't show the intern and the damsel-in-distress becoming love-birds!!! I thought that the ending would be spared from it after another witness turns hostile too, but staying faithful to the conventional community, they simply couldn't help showing the good win v/s evil, regardless of how logically or otherwise it's done. As pointed out by a critic, IMO too, it's a wasted opportunity. At best, it could have fitted some reality crime show. Then again, I'm not sure whether or not, it's real. The disclaimer at the beginning of the movie surprised me as all along, it's promoted as being based on a real event. Not as in Fargo. The writer-producer says that it's based on a recent real case in the given nation. Being fictionalized is understandable, but I couldn't find any such real case from which it's claimed to be inspired. [Don't know whether it's my incompetency to find it or that it simply doesn't exist.] I can't recall the story of The Verdict, but it's said that it's rather inspired from it more or less (not much to speculate there since Vikram is significantly involved in the venture). Finally, while the movie focuses on medical negligence, if such were the events, how isn't it parental negligence too? Are hospital authorities to be blamed if the mother went out keeping the biscuits in the room, and no relative was present in the meanwhile? Whatever the case, I didn't find this murder entertaining or appealing. The case should have been dismissed and not brought before the audience. ADD-IT:- In retrospect, taking into account my own argument (on an unrelated matter), I must admit that just because I couldn't find it on the web doesn't mean that it isn't based on real events. All the same, had it been based on real events, shouldn't the disclaimer be that it's based on real events rather than it's entirely a work of fiction? Besides, while the ending is logical in the sense that the intern turns hostile on the stand, only to get the proof later from the doctor 's admission of the act, it could still have been done without her getting hostile, and making the doctor talk in some other way while the case was going on. The way it's done got my hopes up for a satisfactory ending, only to be crushed later. Last but not the least: blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah................................................. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Really great representation of the medical and judicial flaws in India. Kay Kay Menon is great as the corrupt doctor-an amazing performance. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews
