Shambhunath Mishra (Sanjay Mishra), a retired educator from Gwalior, borrows money from a loan shark named Prajapati Pandey (Saurabh Sachdeva) to support his son’s education and relocation overseas. Shambhunath and his wife are harassed every month by the blackmailer since their child does not provide them with financial support. After an incident, the excellent teacher snaps and kills the harasser. Will Shambhunath escape punishment or be apprehended?

The plot changes when the ominous thug Prajapati Pandey passes by their house one night. These scenes are terrifying as the defenseless couple is forced to watch in silence as they are humiliated in their place.


An old Gwalior couple, played by Sanjay Mishra and Neena Gupta, struggle to find the nerve to seek their ungrateful NRI son Guddu for financial assistance when they should be relishing their retirement. Shambhunath Mishra once accepted a big, exorbitant loan to send his son to the US for further studies.

The couple is doing their best right now, but it is obvious that they are having difficulty. The movie focuses on how the couple fits into this complex tale of blackmail and threats. Vadh, a film co-directed by Jaspal Singh Sandhu and Rajeev Barnwal, examines how Shambhunath and his wife Manju think as they struggle to cope with this unexpected occurrence. As characters debate right and wrong, the movie explores the respectable, almost justifiable killing that the title alludes to.

Saurabh is a perfect fit for the role of the immoral lousy guy as the lecherous Prajapati. Manav Vij portrays Inspector Shakti Singh, who develops a suspicion of Shambhunath and comes to his findings. But Sanjay and Neena give more nuanced performances and have a more significant impact. The rest of the characters, outside the leading pair, follow the script’s hackneyed cliches, especially the unappreciative Guddu, who plays a rather one-note character throughout the film.

Rating – Three out of five stars.

Three stars for a After a certain point, the first half drags, and Prajapati should have cut down on his harassment of the couple. The second half, however, is inspiring. Even though the conclusion appears a little too tidy, it serves the movie’s more prominent theme by justifying killing when done for the right reasons: Sanjay and Neena’s poised performances save Vadh.

You won’t need to watch any graphic scenes because of the skilful use of sound in the setting where Shambhunath discards the body. Due to the factors above, the movie gets this rating.

Jaspal Singh Sandhu and Rajeev Barnwal are in charge of directing the picture. Neeraj Ruhil, Ankur Garg, and Luv Ranjan are the producers. Sanjay Mishra, Neena Gupta, Manav Vij, and Saurabh Sachdeva are among the actors who appear in it. On December 9, 2022, it was released in theaters. Netflix is now offering the movie for streaming.
