This brings us to the point of the emotional quotient of the film. A story like this ought to have drawn tears from even the eyes of the stone-hearted but, quite surprisingly, the film doesn’t move the audience to tears. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that many among the viewers would want to cry while watching the film but cannot, because the drama does not peak to the emotional high it ought to. For this, the script is as much to be blamed as the narration. The ending is tame and not just because it doesn’t make the viewer cry but also because the audience expects to see the court’s judgement being pronounced and, probably, Sabrina and Mira (yes, Mira too!) breaking down in court. But what the viewer gets is a mere voice over about the court ruling. An issue-based film with such strong emotional undertones ought to make the viewer cry – if it doesn’t, it’s a minus point.

No One Killed Jessica Review (No One Killed Jessica Movie Still)

It may be added here that the points raised in the last three paragraphs above may be of concern for the masses among the audience but these very points may actually prove to be plus points for the classes which may appreciate the absence of cliched scenes and melodrama in the film.

Another notable point: both the heroines of the film make lofty promises but fail to keep them. Sabrina announces that she had made herself and her late sister, Jessica, a promise that she wouldn’t shed a tear till she had got justice for her (Jessica). But yet, she starts to cry at the candle march. Surely, Sabrina couldn’t have known at the candle march that the case would soon be reopened. In any case, she was hardly responsible for the candle march in the first place, so it wasn’t even as if she had gotten justice (if the march can at all be called ‘getting justice’) for her sister. Mira tells her assistant, Aditi (), that she would make her famous for her farsightedness in the Jessica Lall murder case. But once the case is ‘reopened’ by Mira’s TV channel, she never lets the world know about Aditi’s farsightedness. In fact, it is always Mira who comes across as the hero. So, the discerning audience feels let down by the unkept promises of the two heroines who are the virtual heroes of the drama.

Both, the first and second halves of the film have scenes that seem stretched. Dialogues (by Raj Kumar Gupta) go with the mood of the film and are appealing.

  1. u gav d movi 2 stars n on d othr hand u say it is a definite watch…???
    cant under stand dis…
    rest al critics hav rated it 4 stars or 3 n half stars…

      • no komal, the confusion stays. I’ll explain:

        – if you want to give business rating do it separate from the regular critics rating. Perhaps, based on a movie’s meritocracy give it a higher critical rating but a lower business rating due to the economics surrounding a particular film.

        Food for thought?

        • Hey XYZ,

          It would have been great if you would have published your real name here. We really appreciate your suggestion. In fact @koimoi.com we have been toying with this idea for sometime. Only – Komal’s views are prominently trade based and two types of ratings shouldn’t create more confusion in people.

  2. definitely it’s a good movie….every1 must watch it…But one thing is clear that the film will be score only city based area….and i agree with komal nahta

  3. I liked the move “No one killed Jessica” because it of the 2 ladies :). They did a great job.

    In the “No one killed Jessica Movie review”, I feel it is more than stars, I read the review to understand the movie. At times even a low rated movie is a good time pass. It depends on my mood actually.
