Mardaani - Preview

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

A slick even if not taut thriller more than a film that keeps the social issue it is about in your mind after you walk out.

It is always exciting to see a film take on a social cause. It is difficult to make a good movie out of it, because we expect solutions from the movie and more often than not, the movie offers simplified solutions which can hardly every be taken seriously in real life. Even so, it is better than watching a theme that has been beaten down to death by repetition. In that sense, I am looking forward to Mardaani.

Only to be reminded the disaster that Laaga Chunari Mein Daag was - same director, same actor, same production house. Yet, I like Rani Mukherjee take on different topics.

Also, from the trailer, there seems to have been some work done in developing characters rather than just taking on an issue that has potential to titillate. The villain seems to be a compelling threat, which is a rare find in Hindi cinema. Rani Mukherjee's character seems to be taking this on as a challenge. A refreshing duel of equals, at least that's what it looks like.

One of those films that you can walk into with pretty much neutral expectations. Always good.
