Gulaab Gang - Preview

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Something that could have had so much meat and punch, becomes just another common (wo)man vs. system film.

Madhur Dixit and Juhi Chawla - How exciting! Madhuri Dixit Vs. Juhi Chawla - intriguing and exciting. Madhuri Dixit Vs. Juhi Chawla in powerful women-oriented roles around a women empowerment theme - I am sold. At least to watch the film, even if not to like the film.

Especially since they immediately deflated the charm by going all dramatic on us. The overdose of dialogue being said forcefully for effect is annoying in the trailer itself. The hope is that there are times in the film when the ladies speak normally too.

Other than that, Gulaab Gang seems to be like the umpteen good vs evil, strong protagonist vs system film - only that it is with women in charge. Thankfully they are women we can look forward to watching at least once. The hope is that it will bring out the real work done by Gulabi Gang of Bundelkhand.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to catch the documentary, Gulabi Gang that came out last week, but we do have a review. Here's hoping Gulaab Gang does justice to the issue handled by Sampat Pal Devi and Co.
