Judgementall Hai Kya will take you through an intriguing, colorful and intense ride of emotions where a murder keeps the audience on the edge. Kangana Ranaut is Bobby whose parents had died when she had been a child, and the tragic loss leaves her with a mental disorder. Bobby is known as someone who has acute psychosis and everyone, from her relatives, police and friends, call her crazy.   

Rajkummar Rao plays Keshav. When Bobby and Keshav meet, the chase to nab the murderer begins that ends with a twist. But, is everything in between dubious?  
It's a very different screenplay. The writer Kanika Dhillon seems to have taken inspiration or picked up the plot from a similar Korean or French film, as the screenplay, editing and shooting style reflect the cinema there. It's not a normal Hindi film screenplay. 
The dialogues are okay.  
There is no music. The one song that is on the top chart currently 'The Wakhra song' appears at the end of the film.  
There is no action 
The locations are a treat for the eyes. Partly shot in London, the film has beautiful glimpses from the country and the rest of the locations, shot in India, are equally beautiful.  
The editing is superb. It gives the feel of a French or Korean style movie. 
The writer-director are husband and wife seem to have picked up a storyline from some other film, however, director Prakash Kovelamudi has done commendable direction that is unlike normal Hindi cinema. 
Rajkummar Rao's looks and acting are both beyond the cliche. He pulls off his character with great ease and looks suave. Kangana has acted superbly in this film. And, she has worked to look as natural as possible and has turned out to be quite a stunner.
Judgementall Hai Kya is not for those people who have liked films like Article 15, Super 30 or Kabir Singh. This film is for an elite audience who can comprehend the English or French art film style.
