Simran - Preview

wogma rating: The keen must watch on screen; else DVD (?)
quick review:

Simran has a perfectly flawed lead character, played almost to perfection by Kangna Ranaut, the film has a close-to-perfect climax too. If only, the plot didn't accelerate to being outland-ish mid-way.

At the outset, a vibrant, open-minded lead lady from middle-class India who is sure of herself – sounds like it has been done to death in recent films. It doesn't help that this lady seems to be struggling with mental health issues and is played by Kangna Ranaut. But, the trailer still makes you want to watch it.

It is the details that add the layers – she is single because she is a divorcée – that is fairly new for a Hindi film. She confesses to being a kleptomaniac, gambler to add the nuance to the mental health angle. But, the topping is the honesty in dialogue.

Also there is a catch, but we don't know what it is. This one I am certainly looking forward to! Simran releases on 15 September, 2017
