Claps for: The entertainment quotient, the dark comedy and the quirky characters, Kangana's exciting performance.
Slaps for: The film loses its intensity as the story progresses, the sluggish editing.
Popcorn refill: A few.
The story: Set in the interiors of Madhya Pradesh, this is an unconventional story of Alka Singh (Kangana Ranaut), a dacoit/politician who rules with her gun. Having lost her political seat to the Tomar family, she tries to regain her power with the help of her Mama (Piyush Mishra). Simultaneously, Alka's boy toy Rohan (Vir Das) wants to use her to further his Bollywood aspirations. In turn, Rohan gets sucked into the political game and what follows is a twisted tale of power and love.
Performances: Kangana Ranaut's performance is the USP of the film. She is exciting, aggressive as well as emotional and plays a complex character with pizzazz. Piyush Mishra is effortless. Vir Das's performance seems unconvincing. His potentially interesting character is wasted with a half-baked performance.
On a musical note: The title track is appealing. The music and the background score are perfectly in keeping with the flavor of the film.
Combo on offer: The concept of the film is interesting and it starts on an entertaining note. The dark humor blends perfectly with the plot. The character sketches are well drawn and the director has successfully held on to the rustic essence with precise detailing. Unfortunately, the promising plot loses impact as the story progresses. As the film alternates between the love story and the political power play, the audience starts to lose interest. The editing should have been much tighter for the film to retain excitement till the end.
