Gulaab Gang movie is based on Gulabi Gang, a group of Indian women vigilantes and activists dressed in pink saris, fighting against the social injustice and operating in the Bundelkhand region of central India.
Gulaab Gang is a social, action, drama movie focussing on the struggle of women in the country.
The film tells the story of a gang of Indian women dressed in pink coloured saris, fighting against social injustice, operating in Bundelkhand Uttar and Madhya Pradesh (central India).
Initially, it was reported that the movie was based on Sampat Pal Devi's life to evolute "Gulabi Gang", but the director refused on this respect that he obliged her work but the movie is not based on her life.
To compare Gulaab Gang with a gritty and very realistic film like Bandit Queen would be a grave sin. Soumik Sen as a director does not reflect any maturity, instead he is the pretending pseudo intellectual face of Bollywood.
GULAAB GANG raises a strong voice against years of patriarchal pain and suffering -- one might assume it tilts towards arthouse cinema -- the fact of the matter is, Soumik presents the classic conflict between good and evil like any other masala fi..
Madhuri is hero of the film and Juhi the anti hero! They
both do justice to their parts. But the script writer and
the director (same person?) are just about average in their
departments. So if you are a Madhuri and Juhi fan you will
come out wondering weather to appreciate the 40 plus
actresses for their performances or critise them for their
choice of director? If you compare the two actresses Madhuri
is the silent, sharp and simple crusader while Juhi is loud,
vocal and dialogue baaz politician . It will be unfair to
compare the two performances . But on and all Juhi may score
more points only because she is being compared to Madhuri
Dixit . MD plays her role with lots of restraint and
conviction and her all round talent is quite unmatchable! On
the whole 'Gulab Gang' is watchable , once ; for all the
hard work the women have put in it. Men must watch it and
watch out !
