Begum Jaan Review

Srijit Mukherji, the man behind the National Award winning Rajkahini ventures into Bollywood with its Hindi adaptation. He weaves a tale which mainly focusses on the impact of the Radcliffe Line on the lives of eleven women situated in a brothel during the partition period.

Right from the unibrow to the crude abuses, Vidya Balan wears Begum Jaan like a second skin. She plays the koel-eyed, hookah puffing madame who means strict business and doesn't care a damn about independence and wordly political affairs.

Begum Jaan isn't an easy watch. It makes you squirm at the double standards prevailing in the society. At the same time, it comforts you with a hope that 'woh subah kabhi toh aayegi'. Watch it for Vidya Balan whose piercing eyes and firebrand dialogues gives you ample of goosebump-inducing moments!
