Madhuri DixitNew York Times praises Madhuri Dixit

Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit , who has made a comeback to the silver screen after five years with Aaja Nachle , has won praise from the New York Times.

Reviewing 'Aaja Nachle', The New York Times has acknowledged Madhuri's considerable sex appeal and dancing skills even after five years away from Bollywood, the time she has spent leading a "Clark Ken-type life", raising a family in the American city of Denver in Colorado.




"Ms. Dixit reminds us that whatever 'it' is, she's still got it. Now stories will have to be found that can show it off," the Times said in its review on Saturday.

The Times' reviewer writes that Anil Mehta , the director of "Aaja Nachle", produced by Yashraj Films , doesn't quite know what to do with Dixit, who plays Dia, a choreographer living in New York, who returns to her hometown in India and tries to save a theatre that developers want to replace with a mall by putting on a show.

The reviewer says that for "Aaja..." to be a true comeback vehicle for the 40-year-old Dixit, Hindi cinema will have to figure out what kind of heroine a middle-aged woman can be.

The reviewer disapproves the film's story denying Dia, who is divorced with a daughter, a love life, adding: "All her passion goes into the show she's staging and into playing cheerleader to a budding romance between its leads (played by Konkona Sen Sharma and Kunal Kapoor )."

(The picture shows Madhuri in a still from 'Aaja Nachle').
