Begum Jaan Review:
It’s an awesome story one must see in theatre. It’s a story running 70 years back after partition. It’s a movie which has all the Masala, struggle and action. Its Story of Begum Jaan, how she struggled and fought for her right as a strong women. Similar film has been made earlier in Bengali Rajkahini in 2015. It’s how she was sold to a brothel and widowed in her child hood. How she suffered and struggled. It’s a true story.
Coming back, all the kings, administrators and commoners are all hooked by the girls so Begum Jaan managed to rule them .Until Radcliffe draws Lakshman – Rekha.
Vidya Balan also invests fully in Begum Jaan and all her Dialogue baazi will also get ceetis. However, the writer and directors interest level in everything else differs. All the sex workers seems to have a sense of one see the prostitutes staring at the celling entertaining their customers in the film. Sex Workers also have children so they are quite sentimental over a child as all of them seems to be mother first and whores later. And for sure these women needed to be fleshed out.
Begum Jaan seems to resemble a Bengal tigress. She is defending her body or boundaries. She seems to be too indulgent and is trying to retell her virtues through various avatars in animation. Even the conversations between officials of the INC and Muslim League or other cutouts are imaginary. The complete cinematographer effort to capture the Indo – Pak divide with close ups in half frames.
The songs in the movie are too good with good visual effects. One feels proud to have Vidya Balan as an actress in the film. She is a talented actress with good acting skills since years now and has won various awards.
