Plot: A fearless reporter, along with an honest cop and a psychiatrist, wages a war against rapists and gradually attacks the big fish.

Review: Not so long ago, an interview of one of the rapists in the Nirbhaya case had gone viral. The video, a part of the controversial Nirbhaya documentary, showed how the convict had no remorse despite having committed a heinous act. Yudh, takes a somewhat similar approach as the reporter Ragini (Pandit) and psychiatrist Sarangi (Redkar) go about interviewing rapists in jails and remand homes.

It all starts with Ragini's editor refusing to publish a report about a rape case as it involves a powerful and rich person from the city. Ragini quits and meets Inspector Guru Naik (Shringarpure), a principled cop who agrees to help her and also suggests that she meet Sarangi. Sarangi and Ragini interview the rapists and hear their disgusting stories before taking on the big fish, the rich businessman.

The film has its heart in place and seems to be an honest effort to take on a burning issue in the society. It mostly points towards an observation that a hurt male ego is the reason behind rapes and is bold in showing the narratives of the rapists. For most of the time the film is endurable and has some scenes that make you cringe at the mentality of the rapists but at the same time, there are ill-timed songs and an unnecessary love angle between Ragini and Guru.

Both the ladies are good actors and they deliver accordingly. Rajesh has the persona of playing a policeman and his actions sequences seem believable but the stone-face and monotonous dialogue delivery is something he needs to work upon. The supporting cast is filled with overacting characters that kill the impact of the scenes.

To sum it up, Yudh could've been a good film but just about manages to be an average one.
