Direct: Pradeep Sarkar
Cast: Rani Mukherjee and Tahir Bhasin
Writing review after many months. Have watched quite a movies, mostly on small screen and very few on big. Never wrote in more than 4 lines comment about a movie. But this particular movie “Mardaani” made me to write a short review and share my views so that people could not know about it, at least whoever reads this.
Movie is about crime branch inspector Shivani Roy (Rani Mukerji). She is in pursuit of an adopted girl. The early signs showed a simple kidnapping but further investigation reveals abduction by a drug and human trafficking syndicate, comprising of various politicians and gang leaders, the most fierce being Karan or Walt played by Tahir Bhasin.
Without going further about story I want to pass my judgment, that this movie is the most engaging movie I would have watched in last year or two. Most engaging because of a zero dull moment in the movie. Not a single song to boost of the music or the lyrics. Not a long initial credentials or credits at the start. Literary it makes you hook towards the screen right from the initial minute of its start.
Pradeep Sarkar deserves a loud applause for believing that a female actor can carry a movie and carry it to such a height and for marshalling resources so very well. Gopi Puthran an unknown write too needs to be cheered for this wonderful writing and of course thanks to Aditya for producing this movie.
Rani Mukerji as Shivan is her “best” till date. A police officers performance have been done and dusted for N number of times in Indian film industry. But still Rani has created her own niche with her stellar performance. She was indeed Mardaani. The villain Tahir Bhasin was the most impactful negative character to come across recently. Other support cast are near perfect too.
Forget Queen, all hail Rani and Mardaani.
