The gullible and cute Alia Bhatt getting into the character of Gangubai is really worth watching, she has beautifully portrayed Gangubai’s movements to her thinking, along with all the dialogues of Alia are tremendous.
Gangubai Kathiawadi Review:
Alia Bhatt did a great performance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film, every dialogues was applauded.
People watching the first show of Gangubai Kathiawadi are giving mixed response but the number of people who have liked the film is very high.
What I love about Sanjay Leela Bhansali is that he is a champion of flawed characters. His films are driven by extreme personalities who are plagued by suspicion, fear, lust and greed. Alauddin Khilji in Padmavat or Mastani in Bajirao Mastani or Michelle McNally in Black or Devdas Mukherjee in Devdas are prime examples.
These qualities of Sanjay Leela Bhansali have appeared in Alia Bhatt’s much awaited film Gangubai Kathiawadi. The film is based on the famous author Hussain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai.
A serious issue through prostitution has been kept in a simple manner in the film which is really commendable. Gangubai Kathiawadi’s story is about a teenager who left her lawyer father’s house with the dream of becoming a heroine, growing up to become the queen of Kamathipura, the largest area of prostitution in Mumbai.
The story of the film is quite interesting. All its characters are interesting. ‘Ganga Harjivan Das’ is the story of a promising young girl from ‘Kathiawad’, Gujarat, who fights her own battle for her rights from the society, who has not seen anything in her life, has not suffered anything… but now Didn’t give up.
At the beginning of the film, Gangubai says, “It is said that there is never a new moon night in Kamathipura, because there is Gangu! And Gangu was Chand and Chand will remain.” The audience will be forced to applaud every dialogue of Alia Bhatt in the film.
For Alia, there was a scope like Raazi in this film, which she has been able to use properly. She has left no stone unturned to live the character of Gangubai. It would not be wrong to say that after watching the film, if ever the mention of Gangubai Kathiawadi comes, then the picture of Alia Bhatt will definitely emerge in your mind.
Vijay Raj and Shantanu Maheshwari are also being praised in the film. Shantanu has got less screen space in Gangubai Kathiawadi but he has given life through his character in the film. Vijay Raaz plays the role of Razia in the film. As difficult as it is to play this role, he has presented it in front of the audience in an equally effortless way.
