  • Queen 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 07 Mar, 2014

    I think the last completely female-centric hindi movie I thoroughly enjoyed was Kahaani. And now thankfully, we have Queen. And we need some more. Kangana Ranaut totally reigns, rules and lords (excuse the puns) over this breezy, real and heartfelt finding-yourself flick with a highly nuanced, extremely believable and completely endearing portrayal of the quirky lovable Rani. She’s strongly aided by a fun supporting cast including a smoking hot Lisa Haydon, a pitch perfect jerk played by Rajkumar Rao and…

    One of three movies I was looking forward to in the second half of the year along with Dhoom 3 and The Lunch Box, Shuddh Desi Romance surely delivers! Beautifully filmed across Jaipur and generously sprinkled with some great lines, this ballsy film flows breezily through most of its two hour run-time and for a change, even the songs feel perfectly placed. Parineeti is terrific (as you’d expect) in her different-than-usual turn, Sushant Singh Rajput nails the confused doofus to…
