 A few days later, the girls are threatened by phone calls, and their house owner is given threats to have the girls thrown out. Minal goes to the police and reports the incident which happened that night and an FIR is filed. But to her shock, she is arrested on the charges of prostitution and murder attempt. Deepak Sehgal (Amitabh Bachchan) who is a neighbor of these three girls, once a famous elderly lawyer who has quit practice, Sehgal offers to defend the girls in a case that almost appears to be a lost cause as the girls are subjected to humiliation and are portrayed as criminals.

Amitabh Bachchan was brilliant as always, the acting by the three girls was real and believable and all supporting actors are playing their role very well.

When a girl says NO, it means a NO, she should be anyone, your girlfriend, your date, your wife, or even a sex worker. This is exactly the point that PINK drives to the audience.
