Promising topic treated poorly. Who doesn’t want to see a girl with integrity, mental courage and physical strength set things straight? There’s so much A.R.Murugadoss could have done right with a plot this novel in a film industry where women have little to do except dance around trees. However, he forced scene after scene into the screenplay in an endless recursive loop of “she’s gonna win” – “setback” – “she made it” – “setback”. Over the 2.5 hours you are trained to keep expecting bad stuff to happen making you go limp at the edge of your seat. Even the climax is anything but feel good. Someone with a sense of fairness like me felt cheated.
Sonakshi Sinha took a bold step by taking on this script but her acting needs more work. Konkona Sen Sharma was “handcuffed” by her limited role too. (4/10)
