Heeramandi: An Over Thought Out Review

Gulaab Gang - Movie Review

I just have one word for the entire experience – Unsatisfactory! With all the hype and with a star cast of Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla I expected a much better experience. I honestly feel that a biopic on Sampat Pal would have had a better influence and a better impact than this frictional character which we know has its roots in Sampat Pal.
 The story goes for a toss after the first half hour of the movie. The screen play doesn’t do much to hold the audience’s attention.
 The songs are another irritating part of the movie… aren’t we over the phase where songs were a “Must Have” in a movie? All the songs in the movie are unasked for and ruin the remaining seriousness or the logical link that the movie has.
 I was waiting for at least one scene that would make me go WOW! But unfortunately that didn’t happen.
 I honestly think Juhi Chawla did a better job than Madhuri Dixit here, she was able to do justice to her character.

Even as I write this I can only think of things I can criticize so ill just keep it short and say go watch Queen instead of Gulaab Gang. (I haven’t seen Queen but Internet is all praises about it)


  1. Glad to read your post :). It is very informative!

  2. I appreciate your blog post, beautifully expressed and well written.

  3. Very value able post, I read the whole story when I start reading it.

  4. Aah! That bad, eh!? We had to choose between this one and Queen, last week, thank God we opted for Queen!! :)

  5. Oh yes Queen is definitely worth a dekho.
    The success of Queen is due to a few facts which other movie makers ignore:
    1) less make up (observe Kangana's face)
    2) shooting at the exact location and not in studios (streets of Delhi, Amsterdam, Paris)
    3) The perfect casting for each role.
    4) No melodrama (in fact all have underplayed their role)
    Following you.
