Haseena Parkar (2017) Review
Apoorva Lakhia's courtroom drama lacks substance and is poorly executed. What could have been an engrossing take on one of the controversial women from the Mumbai underbelly, is simply reduced to a tool that tries to manipulate you to sympathize with Haseena for all the injustice that she had to face by the virtue of being Dawood Ibrahim's sister!
Shraddha Kapoor may have given her honest shot, but sorry girl, you are a miscast here! For the mature version of Haseena, she seems to be hiding roshgullas under her cheeks as she slurs while mouthing her lines. The poker face doesn't help either.
There's a scene where Shraddha's Haseena says, 'Aapa yaad reh gaya na... naam yaad rakhne ki zaroorat nahi.' Unfortunately, there's nothing worth remembering in this snooze-fest. Skipping this one won't do much harm!
