Actually the film’s failing is it’s amateur writing and execution. You can see that the maker is crushed under the weight of the material chosen. The treatment also yo-yos. On the one hand, you feel anguish when Naseer loses his daughter and when the “cancer train’’ is brought on board to convey the enormity of the crisis looming over us. But on the other hand, the film leaves you stone-cold because of the consistencies in the character sketches and screenplay. While Naseeruddin and Arshad are perfect, the villain Paddy F Sharma (Sharad Kelkar) and his partner-in-crime, CM, Ramandeep Braitch(Divya Dutta) are absolute caricatures.
There is also a sub-plot of a journalist (Sagarika Ghatge) seeking revenge for her dead boyfriend. Even this track is really weak. If intention is everything, you may feel kindly towards Irada. Unfortunately when it comes to a celluloid experience, story-telling is prime. Here, the film falters.

There has been very little good news coming out of Punjab, films wise. And Irada is no exception, but rather than drugs, it deals with the cancerous contamination of Punjab’s groundwater and fields.That is a film crying to be made, but instead of the characters, Irada gives us caricatures

Its head-on take on the overuse of natural resources should be considered an alarm bell. The epidemic can spread to other places even before we realise and if it is in our hands to restrict the menace, we should better act.

Also, it’s the age of theme-driven films and Irada has a strong one.

In the course of a mobile phone conversation, Warsi’s sleuth advises his son not to watch films like Singham for “it takes you away from reality”. But when push comes to shove, he accepts that it is time to “become Singham“.
Mercifully, he does not resort to extreme methods a la Singham – a spy camera and a single slap is all he deploys in the climax – but Irada ends on a pat, preachy note, invoking Che Guevara, no less.
Be that as it may, Irada is a film that we must all watch. It scores because its intentions are commendable and its message hits home.

Irada, then, is a film that could have been a superb take on how the political-industrial-corporate (in no particular order) nexus is destroying and poisoning the world’s food chain systemically even as it ruins young lives and shatters the dreams of their loved ones.
