The film’s catchphrase, “Girl Gone Badass,” encapsulates the essence of the narrative, providing a welcome break from the stereotypical narratives prevalent in the industry.
The soul-stirring music of “Hey Kameeni- Girl Gone Badass” promises to be a highlight of the film. Debutant music composer Rinki Sharma’s hauntingly beautiful track, “Tu hai Kahan,” is bound to linger in the hearts of the audience and find its way into playlists. The soulful sound of “Dice” by debutant Japanese music composer and singer, Ken Goma, introduces a fresh perspective, making him a composer to watch out for.

A cast of talented newcomers among actors and music composers sets the tone completely in variance with the recent deliberations on nepotism in Bollywood.
The writers Anjali Joshi and Mani Shankar have ensured the pace and intrigue never stops. The suspense endures till the very end.
Director Mani Shankar says “Making a film about a girl going Badass has been a long-time obsession. As a writer, it fascinated me. As a director it challenged me. We did a lot of workshops to get the subtext right. You are in the domain of unexpressed feelings. It has to come out just right”
