'Simran' Movie Review: Despite Strong Characterisation Film Fails To Impress

'Simran' Movie Review: Despite Strong Characterisation Film Fails To Impress

Kangana plays Praful Patel, a 30-year-old divorcee who lives with her parents in Atlanta.

Kangana Ranaut's most-awaited Bollywood drama movie titled "Simran" has finally released today and here is our review. Kangana mostly does a fine job of bringing the character to life but at times goes overboard while portraying the antics of Praful. Kangana certainly has set up a precedent which her colleagues and juniors would certainly relish and try to imitate at other times. Her flawless performance covers up for the flaws in the story and her endearing antics makes up for the weakly sketched character that she plays. Back in the day she was typecast as the problem child, who has a dark past, now she's trapped playing the bohemian wild child with an unpredictable personality.

Some critics are also of the opinion that Simran is an extension of Kangana Ranaut's super hit blockbuster, Queen, that changed her career graph completely. If you're a fan, you can forgive the film for its flaws if only to see "Simran" running to catch a metaphorical train.not for a happy ending with a man, but for a beginning for herself. But when you watch the film, you will find yourself warming up to her occasionally, because she's all you've got. It is not that our screens are getting affected because of them or vice versa. But in a ridiculous sequence, she willingly nearly sleeps with an American stranger for money, and then refuses at the last moment because he is not using protection! She then goes to the terrace with her glass and cherishes the moment. "Simran's parents and her fiancee, Sameer (Sohum) and other actors-foreign and desi-don't quite add up".

In response to that, Kangana said: "No, I am not a man-hater for sure".

Like the yesteryear Simran, Praful too is an NRI. Hansal Mehta's Simran works best when breezing along with a light touch, when Ranaut effervescently befriends bartenders and cheerily refuses to take no for an answer.

The actress who is Akshay Kumar's wife got into legal trouble during Lakme Fashion Week when she unbuttoned her husband's jeans. Marked by a sparkling performance by its lead, the film is definitely charming in parts.But can it, like its tagline says, break free and fly?

Raja Sen reviewed the film for NDTV and awarding it 2.5 stars, wrote, "Ranaut and a few clever lines keep the film watchable, until the third act where the script sadistically starts piling misfortune on the character to ratchet up the dramatic tension". But the point is, who are you tell me what my business is? "The last half hour has cringeworthy pacing and feels more mean-spirited than the rest of the film for no good reason". Her antics - even if ridiculous - make you smile because Ranaut is a skilled actor. It is such a relief to see a Hindi film set in a Western country that is not packed with bad foreign extras - each actor here has been chosen with care.
