Pradeep SarkarÔÇÖs Mardaani┬á re-enforces his calibre as a film maker. Potraying cops could be the next best formula to enter the 100 crore club in bollywood, but Mardaani is of a different league. Rani Mukherjee gets undivided and well deserved attention throughout the film, and she impresses the cine goers by all means. Shivani Shivaji Roy, doesnÔÇÖt sing, dance and cry; rather she is fierce and adorned with the skilful tactics of prompt self defence and crisp intelligence. A Mumbai Police Crime Branch inspector, Shivani (Mukherjee) sets out on a search of a trafficked girl, Pyaari and in the process unearths the filthy nexus of the child trafficking market in Delhi.
The hard hitting scenes come well endowed with crisp edit and sound dialogues. A particular scene where Shivani is seen teaching legal sections while hitting a goon is definitely one of a kind.
Tahir Bhasin as the badie decks up the screen well and doesnÔÇÖt go unnoticed even though shivani blows him hard. The research put into Mardaani is a first timer for any bollywood film that aims to cash on the cop tactic.
The narrative is crisp and uncompromising and the flow seamless. ┬áA film devoid of melodrama and uncalled for song sequences is a breather. Mardaani comes with a taut climax that leaves the audience hooked inherently. The fight sequence towards the end puts forth the kind of effort the team has put in as the smacks and kicks are sure shot rigorous.
All in all Mardaani is a Rani Mukherjee flick, which in the coming years would be recalled with euphoria.
