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.

Plot Summary

A cop takes on child-traffickers.

What Worked

  • The scene in which the girls are being assessed by their body. Creepy.
  • The dialogue between the villain and the cop, Shivani Shivaji Roy (Rani Mukherjee).
  • The scene in which the girls are auctioned. Humiliating.
  • Shivani's mute yet empowering husband.
  • The undisturbed villain having a breakdown.
  • "Ye India hai" scene. Irony and sarcasm at its best.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Singham is Bajirao Shivaji and Shivani is Shivaji Roy. Why?
  • When they made the effort of Rani Mukherjee wearing minimal make-up, why did she have to get up from deep sleep, be rushed to some place and be seen wearing fresh pink lipstick?
  • Shivani's monologue - when she explains what happened.
  • Shivani's monologue - the preachy one.
