No One Killed Jessica, based on the much talked about Jessica Lall murder case stars Rani Mukherjee, Vidya Balan, new comer Myra Karn and a host of other actors in various supporting roles. Rajkumar Gupta’s latest brings back into the limelight, a case which captured the fancies of the media and the nation at large for a number of years.
Set in Delhi (reminded ad nauseum during the movie through an oft-repeated background score), the movie opens with the infamous event of bar tender Jessica Lall (Myra) getting shot by high profile politician’s son Manish Bharadwaj. Sabrina Lall (Vidya Balan) sets out to seek justice for her sister, only to be stalled in her efforts by powerful politicians, hostile witnesses and corrupt police officers. She is soon joined in her quest by hotshot, foul-mouth journalist Meera Gaity (Rani Mukherjee) and together they manage to arouse public outrage to the point where the administration gives in and justice is finally delivered.
