Judgementall Hai Kya traces the journey of Bobby (Kangana), a crazy, irreverent character, who is borderline obsessed with her next-door neighbour, Keshav (Rajkummar). 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.
In picture: Radhika Madan, who made her Bollywood debut with Pataakha, sported a black tee, paired with red cargo pants and black stilettos for the outing.
Producer Ekta Kapoor talking about Kangana in the movie said, "She's irreverent, radical and absolutely wild. As Bobby, Kangana has aced her character. Her oddity is what makes her stand out and that's what we attempt to celebrate."

Ekta Kapoor further continued: "Bobby works on her instincts and you're either with her, or you're questioning her, right till the end. Rajkummar as Keshav is exactly the opposite. He is the happy 'normal' guy and that makes his character more fishy. Both Bobby and Keshav compel you to wonder who the real culprit is."

In a media interaction, Ekta Kapoor also mentioned: "Kangana's character 'Bobby' in Judgementall Hai Kya stands for everything that isn't 'regular' or mainstream acceptable. With Bobby, the makers have opened doors to introducing characters who are wild, imperfect and politically incorrect but fully entertaining!"
In picture: Amyra Dastur, who plays the role of Keshav's (Rajkummar Rao) girlfriend, opted for a white body-hugging dress for the screening.
Ekta Kapoor concluded: "There ain't anything normal about Bobby while on the other hand there is everything 'too' normal about Rajkumar Rao's character 'Keshav'. He is the regular, happy, perfect guy which in Bobby's world makes her wary of him. He's always seen with a lens of suspicion by Kangana's character. The suspicion reaches new heights of obsession and that's when the danger sets in!"

In Judgementall Hai Kya, Kangana's character is obsessed with Rajkummar's character and is one of the suspects in this murder mystery. How she deals with this is at the same time creepy and arouses curiosity, while Rajkummar's character is just a guy who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
In picture: Jannat actress Sonal Chauhan opted for denim dungarees to attend the screening.
As the suspicion around them thickens, their stories start getting crazier. While Kangana is at ease being perfectly 'imperfect' and crazy, Rajkummar's character warns us against the 'crazy' stalker!'
In picture: Amrita Puri, who was last seen in Made In Heaven, also attended the special screening hosted at a popular multiplex in Juhu, Mumbai.
In an interview, the Newton star spoke in length about his character. Rajkummar Rao said, "When I said yes to the film, I knew that I was [signing up] for something unusual. [The treatment that has been employed in the movie] has never been done before. That's where the challenge lay. Also, this is the first time I'm doing a thriller."
In picture: Arjun Bijlani gave the paparazzi a thumbs up at the screening.
Given the quirky universe created by writer Kanika Dhillon, he reveals that it wasn't easy to slip into the part of Keshav, a seemingly-straitlaced guy with a mysterious past. "My character is edgy and layered. So I had to prepare accordingly, I had to understand the nuances and adopt a particular body language."

An intriguing thriller, Judgementall Hai Kya promises to encourage everyone to embrace and celebrate their individuality and distinctiveness. Judgementall Hai Kya, produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Telefilms and Shaailesh R Singh's Karma Media And Entertainment, releases on July 26.
In picture: Maniesh Paul also attended Judgementall Hai Kya screening.
Janhvi Kapoor, Radhika Madan, Swara Bhasker, Amyra Dastur, Amrita Puri, Abhimanyu Dassani, Kanika Dhillon, Maniesh Paul, Rhea Kapoor, Raja Kumari and Sonal Chauhan attended a special screening of Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut-starrer Judgmentall Hai Kya special screening hosted at a popular multiplex in Juhu, Mumbai.
