Simran


Films like ‘Queen’ and ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ are best suited for Kangana Ranaut. Audience loved to see lively Kangana taking the world into her own hands and lives life on her own terms without caring who says what about her. Director Hansal Mehta has taken those factors of Kangana into account and made ‘Simran’ a film about a girl who is lively, spirited divorcee.

In ‘Simran’, Kangana Ranaut plays a 30-year-old divorcee named Praful Patel, who lived in Atlanta in United States. In US, she works as a house-keeper in a five-star hotel in Atlanta and unwillingly to live with her middle-aged parents in the suburbs. Living with her parents was a big headache for Praful, who constantly nagged by her parents to get married. But Praful has a different wish in her mind. She wishes to own a house and live life on her own terms. Owing to minority status, Praful gets house with a good bargain. She struggles to get a loan to buy her own house.

But things took a twist when Praful Patel visited Los Angeles with her cousin who is getting married. In Las Vegas, she visited a casino and like the usual tendency of a gambler, she wins initially and after winning a good amount she puts more money on it and starts losing. She finally lost all the money that she has saved to buy her own dream house and she took to illegal ways to pay back. 32,000 dollars she got for loan. Praful starts robbing banks and doing things that lands Praful and her family in trouble.

The film runs on Kangana’s shoulder and she performs her part effortlessly. Kangana has acquired excellence in enacting such happy-go-lucky kind of girl role but audience craves variety from her. Sohum Shah's (Sameer) is okay. Hiten Kumar is good. Kishori Shahane is fantastic. 

Hansal Mehta’s director was undoubtedly good but he needs to deal with few instances in a more clear way.

On the technical front, Anuj Rakesh Dhawan's cinematography is eye-catching. Production design by Tiya Tejpal was fine. Antara Lahiri's editing is okay. Production values are splendid. Sachin-Jigar's music is passable. 

In the nutshell, ‘Simran’ is an interesting watch. You can’t take the memory of ‘Simran’ back home with you. Just enjoy the movie and it brushes off from your memory.
