The Gulaab Gang Movie Review

'Gulaab Gang' salutes women power with clichés
By Priyanka Kapoor
Rating: 2.5/5

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Gulaab Gang. The women in the world of director Soumik Sen’s Gulaab Gang aren’t all the docile lot. They’re spunky, they brandish lathis, they breath fire, they spout curses, they dance, sing, they slap menfolk around, they pounce upon rapists, and they are even evil. You read that right. Both the hero and the villain of this movie (pardon the masculine terms) are women. One who dishes out vigilante justice, another who’s blinded in her pursuit of power.

Rajjo (Madhuri Dixit) is the leader of a vigilante group called Gulaab Gang. She’s suffered hardships from early on in life but tided over all obstacles to be a woman of might and the right. She is respected and revered by all in the fictional town of Madhavpur. She’s the guiding light and conscience keeper for her gang. She’s also a feisty fighter when it comes to teaching the bad guys a lesson the way they understand.

On the other end is Sumitra Devi (Juhi Chawla), a widow politician and a master puppeteer pulling every string to pursue her political ambition. Winning the coming election is her singular focus and it looks like she, with cops and bureaucrats in her pocket, would romp home to victory until Rajjo stand in her way.

The leader of the Gulaab Gang decides to set the system right by joining it, that’s by fighting the elections. The battle lines are drawn. Sparks fly, followed by fireworks.

'Gulaab Gang' trailer: Madhuri Dixit’s wrath versus Juhi Chawla’s shrewdness!

Gulaab Gang could have been a moving tale of women empowerment but it merely ends up as a good-versus-bad tale burdened with Bollywood clichés. The women of the 'Gulaab Gang' inexplicably break into song and dance just when one begins to take them seriously. And all the dialoguebaazi the ladies indulge in robs the film of gravitas.

The fault lies with Soumik Sen’s writing and direction which is hobbled by Bollywood compulsions. Thankfully, the leading ladies rise above the shoddy script to make the film work for the most part. Madhuri Dixit excels in a few scenes, particularly the ones that have her doing the stunts. Juhi Chawla impresses with her pure performance. She is an image of shrewdness and unbridled lust for power. Kudos to both the ladies. On the sidelines, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Divya Jagdale and Priyanka Bose chip in powerful performances.

If only the ladies had the material good enough for their talent, Gulaab Gang might have been a powerful tale. Such as it is, the film is strictly one-time watch.

Rating: **1/2
