Just the poster and first few looks of Begum Jaan gave us a hint that we need to expect more. Although we all knew the story line, the trailer of the movie gave a better vision of the life of Begum. Vidya is bound to leave you awestruck in the 3 minute trailer. She is fearless, she is fierce, she will leave you awestruck and you will be moved to tears!
Set against the backdrop of partition, Begum Jaan is asked to vacant her Kothi along with other women for the line of partition falls through her house. Begum Jaan leaves a smashing reply to the sarkaari people and then starts the rebel of these women to fight for their own house.
The dialogue delivered by the lead actress is commendable. She has these powerful messages hidden behind them. She abuses on the screen like it is no big deal for her and she steals the show with her powerful act. This is, hands down Vidya’s boldest performance till date!
Amongst various talents in the movie, one person who stood out was definitely Chunky Pandey who went out of his ‘Pasta’ avatar and gave a hitting performance as the character of Kabir.
The movie is a Hindi adaptation of ‘Rajkahini’ by the same director Srijit Mukerji. The movie also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Gauahar Khan, Pallavi Sharda, Ila Arun, Chunky Pandey and various others. The movie is set to release on 14th April.
