Without resorting to any technical wizardry nor any
melodrama, It's Breaking News says it all in the most
simplistic course and is an engrossing story.
Vidya (Koel Purie) is a young, dynamic, self-motivated
news correspondent with a TV Channel, who has just
finished a course in journalism and is all charged to take
up confrontations of this profession. She then is forced
to quit entertainment and cover crime. Gradually, she gets
the hang and feel of it.
she is now addicted to the thrill and ecstasy of the job
and once, she even tries to fool around with the so
called ethics and codes of journalism by creating
situations to get a story for her channel.
Our reporter had promised the victim that the entire
episode of 'live rape' footage would not be telecast but
will be kept aside for defense of the victim in the court.
Despite Vidya's caution to the
editor of her TV channel, it is shown all over the town.
Vidya herself is disturbed to see the telecast of the
whole footage 'as it is' in her news channel.
Bugged with the whole system,
she leaves for her uncle's place (Virendra Saxena), who
had been insisting her to visit his press. After the
debacle, she is a matured scribe and realizes the genuine
power and nuance of journalism and gets the spur to fight
back the system. With close friend Bala (Abhimanyu Singh),
a crime correspondent in a rival channel, she decides to
get the victim justice.
The film showcases the behind-the-scenes drama involved or
"developed" before a scandal is unleashed to the viewers.
The sting operations are compellingly executed.
Director Vishal Inamdar has brilliantly portrayed this
depiction behind the reality thankfully with just one song
in the film. Koel Purie is attractive and good at her job.
