Sujoy Ghosh’s Badla has already created quite a buzz with the audience.

With a Badla Unplugged series featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, Khan’s speculated cameo in the film, and the successful pairing of Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu, again after Pink, has held the excitement around the film.

However, what is a lesser discussed fact is that the film is an adaptation of a Spanish film, The Invisible Guest (Contratiempo, 2016), written and directed by Oirol Paulo.

The Spanish hit, a crime thriller, revolves around a married businessman Adrián Doria, who is out on bail after being arrested for the murder of his lover, Laura Vidal.

The trailer of Badla shows a similar charge against the protagonist. The difference is that in the film, Taapsee is accused of the crime, while the original film had a man as the accused. While Amitabh Bachchan plays the defence attorney in Badla, a woman, Ana Wagener, plays the part in the Spanish film.

While this switch from the original is evident, we will have to wait to see if Badla sticks to the broader story line otherwise.

Will the film follow the original plot, or something different is planned altogether for Badla?

The Invisible Guest was full of twists and surprises. Let’s see how twisted will Badla be.
