New Queen of Bollywood

I know till now most of you had already watched the movie and also thinking that oh again another one going gaga over it. And yes, you are right, I was bowled over by the sheer simplicity of the story and the way characters are weaved. Right from the start where Kangana is voicing her innermost feelings to the end when she finally gave back her engagement ring, it is all so simple yet so meaningful. Queen is the story of every other Indian girl who has little little expectations of her marriage and life partner. A simple girl who obeys every wish of the people she love and gives a backseat to her own dreams.

Rani is someone whom you can relate to, she has small wishes yet big dreams, she is trying to be confident yet scared. A girl who has never been outside Delhi wants to go Amsterdam, explore Paris. Then suddenly all dreams shatter, leaving her shocked to death. But the way she comes out of her sorrow is something remarkable

 Then she starts off with the most beautiful yet most difficult journey of her life. A journey which gives her self-confidence, freedom, friends, and happiness. This is the journey where she discovers herself as well as the world around her. She makes friends, drink, dance, have fun and in the midst of all this finds the most important answers of her life.

At last when she come back to India, she is a confident girl who can take decisions of her life without any advice and help.

What I liked most about the movie was that the whole movie and characters are so relatable and real. I have never been a big fan of Kangana Ranaut but after seeing her as Rani I would only say that this role is tailor made for her and she brings life to the character. Rani's dreams, her hesitation before her marriage, her shock when marriage breaks and the way she comes out of it, everything is so aptly done by Kangana. Every character is so up to the mark and songs doesn't look forced.

Another thing that is really remarkable about this movie is the way audience accepted this story. I mean if the movie had been released five years back either it would either be a flop or the end would have been different(they would have showed Rani going back to her good for nothing fiance ). but the way audience accepted this movie shows that time has come that our film industry should grow up and stop showing women as a showpiece. Time has come to show us some ground reality and not those big villas, oh so beautiful locations.
                Right folks!!!
