The fight sequences were good too. Though there aren’t many strong dialogues that gets imprinted on your mind but the story line is a strong one. Kudos to Pradeep Sarkar for taking up such a sensitive issue for a movie and showing how women can defend themselves against odds. Every scene is quite important and has a meaning. You can so feel her pain, which she brings on with the right expressions-without going overboard and her introduction sequence too gives her full brownie points where she yells “keep the change”. A cop’s search for a missing teenage girl leads her to the depraved world of child trafficking.

Human trafficking is I believe worse than drug trafficking and when people combine it, it is like, how far you can go. I love a good comedy or action movie as much as I enjoy a serious one. Tahir Bhasin as walt is chilling and makes a fine addition to the psychopathic villains already hogging the limelight in Bollywood. Super-cop performance with minimal resources at disposal. So its been a rare treat to find Mardaani joining the club of few movies that shows true events. For instance the ages old formulas of using the ‘Tailor’s tag on the clothes’ or ‘the sound of train or Azaan’ spotted in the phone call of the kidnapper are fitted into the screenplay as if they wished to give a tribute to that gone era.

Pradeep Sarkar and his team made a masterful attempt to narrate one of them, Child trafficking. Typically unBollywoodish – will keep you glued to your seat for the mardaanl length of the movie – ends with a cracker from Sunidhi! Jishu Sengupta the Bengali actor is wasted in a brief role.

Its a recommended movie, and definitely a better watch than the Expendibles. Rani Mukerji with no make up, stern face maintains her strong demeanor. The casting is picture perfect, and the dialogs, not crispy, but suited well.

Rani Mukherji totally justified the role.

Tahir Bhasin, in his debut, did mmardaani impeccable job, as a next-door boy. Pradeep Sarkar’s Direction is simply superb.
