performance of actors

The way Ranveer Singh entered the character of Kapil Dev in the film 83, which came in the last month of last year, Alia has become a complete Gangubai in this film. Body language, style, manner of conversation is like Gangubai in every way. There is also a little overacting, but do not tolerate it, it is not so. The cast of the cute-looking Alia Bhatt in the character of Gangubai is a sight to behold. His dialogues are awesome. Alia is the life of this film and she is the topper. He is also heavy on the story. Seema Pahwa has been amazing in the character of Sheela Bai. Ajay Devgan has also done wonders in the role of Rahim Lala. Vijay Raj plays the role of a transgender Raziabai in this film and has impressed.

movie review

The story of this film is composed in an average manner but the filming is colourful. Utkarshini Vashisht, Prakash Kapadia could have made the story better and deeper. The speech that Alia gives in Azad Maidan has been superb. The film continues to impress in pieces during Ganga Ke Gangu and then Gangubai. Although there are many weak sides it cannot be denied. The art direction of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s films is impressive but it was the weakest in this film. The sets of his films are the best, he has shown this strong side in Bajirao Mastani and Padmavat but this time his Kamathipura felt fake. Beautiful and decorated prostitutes everywhere, rooms painted in the same bright colors, it seemed that all were painted the same color with a brush. From ‘Guzaarish’ to ‘Padmavat’, the music that kept winning hearts was faded this time. The most important drawback in the film is that Alia could not find a scene where she could show her solo performance.
