Nandana Sen would have certainly wanted to forget a misadventure
called Marigold: An Adventure in India but she would be
ending the year on a happier note with her performance in
Strangers coming for much appreciation.
She may have been making selective appearances over the years
(My Wife's Murder, Tango Charlie, Black) and not really
taken seriously by the big daddies of Bollywood but the sensual
actress has made much more than just her presence felt in
the complex part of a woman who is seeing her husband (Jimmy
Sheirgill) drifting away into a strange domain with no earnings or
emotional support to boast, Nandana gives a good account of herself
in this Aanand L Rai debut directorial venture.
Required to demonstrate various traits in her character while
using her Western accent to her advantage, Nandana comes up with a
convincing act in this film which has started finding its audience
at select multiplexes.
