Prior to the film’s release, Kangana Ranaut had held a special screening of this film, Judgementall Hai Kya. Present at the special screening of this film were celebs like Madhur Bhandarkar, Aanand L Rai, Mukesh Chhabra, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Fatima Sana Sheikh, Shaailesh R Singh, Prakash Kovelamudi and Kanika Dhillon to name a few. The event was also graced by Asha Ranaut (Kangana’s mother) and Rangoli Chandel (sister). After exiting the theatres, there was an air of excitement as everyone was appreciating Rao’s and Ranaut’s acting skills.
Judgementall Hai Kya is a story about Bobby, played by Kangana, who suffers from acute psychosis and is borderline obsessed with her tenant, Rajkummar Rao (Keshav). Unlike Bobby, Keshav is overtly ‘normal’. Their lives take an unexpected turn when they become prime suspects in a murder. Though Bobby and Keshav engage in oneupmanship with their own versions of the truth, the audience is thrown into a quandary over whom to trust.
