Vidya Balan: No competition with Rituparna Sengupta
"She has wished me all the best and said that she would come to see the film". And here's the review for all our readers so that they could make a choice.
Begum Jaan Starring Vidya Balan has been released today in the big screens.
Things get worse when the partition was declared, and the brothel lies between the border of both India and East Pakistan(now Bangladesh).
Emphasising that "Begum Jaan" is the readaptation and not the remake of "Rajkahini", Vidya said, "I met Rituparna Sengupta during this visit and she wished me". He told IANS, "After the workshop when Vidya entered the set, I saw Begum Jaan who is a fierce, manipulative no-nonsense kind of woman, walking in". Blessed with an equally large cast and a budget which is over 4,800% higher, one expected a classic that would mark the new 24-karat standard on films on this subject, but it lets you down. The opening scene is set in Delhi, 2016 and it suggests that the dynamics of power between men and women have been the same since the time of Independence.
It is the attempt of Srijit Mukherji to attempt too much at one go, using narrative props that are not too original that makes Begum Jaan often a tedious watch. Begum Jaan was married in her childhood and window at an early age.

Begum Jaan is shrill, shouts at the viewer in every frame. What happens later forms the rest of the story.
The Jharkhand government last week had announced that the film Begum Jaan will become tax-free in the state.
But, there are indeed some good parts to the film. Ila Arun (who once called herself "the shagun ka nariyal" of any Benegal project) reprises a really strong role which leaves a mark as does Gauhar Khan who imbues her Rubina with a rawness that comes across more strongly than her Chand Baby in Ishaqzaade. Now with "Begum Jaan", he will be showered with the love of people of the entire country.
With the constant speculations about the sensitive relations between India and Pakistan yet another film that has faced the consequences is Mahesh Bhatt's Begum Jaan.
