'Queen' - Movie Review by
-- Parvez Chowdhary
Makers of this film might not have planned this film's release date to match with Women's Day but it is rare co-incidence and perfect flick on that precious occasion. Normally in our Male Chauvinistic Society we hardly have many heroin oriented successful films but this film once again re-iterated that if you make a film with good entertainment values then nothing can stop at box office irrespective of the star hero n usual commercial script.
Kangana Ranaut almost threw a tough challenge to all reigning superstars of Bollywood contemporaries with her brilliant performance. It is undoubtedly author backed dream role which rarely comes in ages but justifying it with your exceptional skills is equally essential too. Her innocent looks, her comedy timing and her perfect body language provide exemplary pitch to the subject. Her amazing performance will haunt you for a long time. Amit Trivedi's music accelerates every emotion which enormoulsy helps through out the film.
Director Vikas Bahl who also wrote the story has better understanding of a girl's mind and soul which reflects in every scene. The real point we have to appreciate him while dealing with this kind of subjects most of directors will preach us more than sufficient dosage but Vikas never did this through out the film. It is your own wisdom which insists you to ponder about it. The beautiful locations he chose in Paris and Amsterdam were truly visual treat and excellent cinematography by Siddharth and Bobby will make this flick more colourful.
If we discuss about the story and main plot of the film, it is simple. Rani (Kangana Ranaut), an young Punjabi girl from very conservative family in Delhi who are running a sweet shop and Rani has fine cookery skills which she loves to do with lot of enthusiasm. Like all middle class girls she has same stereo typed dreams and fantasies but one unique is to go to Paris for her honeymoon along with her loveble hubby. Her family friend's son Vijay (RajKumar Rao) an engineering student woos her and family too have approval in this arranged love marriage.
Things change dramatically when Vijay feels she is not his type girl after returning from London(usual stuff in opportunistic middle class families). Shattered Rani goes to Paris to fulfill her long dream to enjoy her honeymoon to Paris but alone. Here she meets hotel staff Vijaya Lakshmi(Lisa Haydon) who happens to be carefree single mother and enjoys every bit of her life with men and drinks. She helps Rani to understand the world and provides sufficient courage.
Rani shares a room with 3 foreigners, handsome white, funny short Japanese and a tall black. How these guys will change Rani's life is rest of story.
I personally appreciate director while showing the bonding between e foreigners and Rani the scenes he wrote were so natural and instant. Thank god director is not influenced by routine Bollywood jingoism of "hindustani ka dil, sab firangi bekar type".
I sincerely recommend this film. It is sure bold, sensitive yet very entertaining. Enjoy it.
Verdict : ***1/2
