No one Killed Jessica

‘No One Killed Jessica’ is a movie based on the backdrop of the high profile Jessica Lala case which shook the nation a few years ago. Jessica Lal, a young Delhi based model, was shot in cold blood at a high profile party in Delhi by an inebriated young man with rich and powerful connections. How witnesses started turning hostile, how the rich and powerful tried to subvert the case and how the media turned around a verdict setting the accused free for lack of evidence and how Jessica’s sister Sabrina Lal fought an almost lone battle to keep the case alive, are well known. This captivating and real story sets the backdrop for a promising young director Rajkumar Gupta who made the highly acclaimed and bold film ‘Aamir’ a few years ago.

Produced by UTV Spotboy the film ‘No One Killed Jessica’ stars Rani Mukherjee as an investigative television journalist, Meera Gaity, and a deglamorised Vidya Balan playing the powerful role of Sabrina Lal. They are backed by a strong supporting cast. The music of the film is composed by National award-winning composer Amit Trivedi who also composed for ‘Aamir’, while lyrics are written by Amitabh Bhattacharya.

‘No one killed Jessica’ promises to be a bold attempt as it showcases the lacunae in the system on the big screen. The title itself speaks of the hypocrisy of the system when a person who killed another in front of several people almost gets away because the witnesses have either compromised or backed out, save for a few, leaving a murder witnessed by many but there is no murderer. The movie is set to release on January 7, 2011 and must be watched by everyone in solidarity of the cause, just as much for the freshness and boldness that Rakhumar Gupta brings with his films and much awaited performances of talented actresses such as Rani Mukherjee and Vidya Balan in powerful roles.
