Directed by Pradeep Sarkar, the movie Mardaani starring Rani Mukerji as Mumbai Crime Branch Officer Shivani Shivaji Rao deals with the issue of human trafficking.
To talk about the plot of Mardaani, Rani takes up a case of a missing girl which later comes out to be an act of a human trafficking racket. Somehow in the course of time, Rani digs out a well establised nexus of human trafficking running in the city and the fearless cop takes up the challenge to nab the racket's big boss.
Whether Rani succeeds in her mission or she quits before the powerful gang, is the tale of Mardaani.
While, the director presented the crucial issue of human trafficking in a potent manner, versatile Rani proved her mettle yet again with her never-seen-before avatar.
Rani not only offered a power-pact performance with her strong acting skills, but the Bengali beauty exhibited some high-flying action stunts too.
Although, there has been quite a few films where actresses play such 'dabang' roles, not all of them offer a realistic presentation; however, thanks to Pradeep and Rani, Mardaani seems as real as any other male actor playing the role.
On the other side, Tahir Bhasin who donned the role of the racket's king-pin was impressive. Antagonists in Bollywood have been more or less cruel but without brains; however, Tahir's character in Mardaani broke the stereotype and he looked as smart as the protagonist Rani.
Rani's husband in the film as Bikram Roy played by Jisshu Sengupta and two girls, one who was kidnapped named Pyari in the film and the other girl who played Rani's niece Meera also did justice to their roles.
Director of Mardaani, Pradeep Sarkar presented a realistic view of the merciless world of human trafficking which may disturb the minds to some extent but will attach a level of emotion with the characters too. Although, the climax scene where Rani throws her gun and challenges Tahir for a one-on-one fight has a typical Bollywood mint, the movie all through kept a good pace which will surely make you stick to the seats.
The movie Mardaani offers quite a number of twists and surprises which will keep the viewers' eyeballs excited and some catchy dialogues will do the same with the ears.
In a nutshell, Rani Mukerji as Shivani Sivaji Roy in Mardaani seems capable enough to shy away several other 'Mard' cops in Bollywood.
