Gangubai Kathiawadi Review
Not even for a single second Alia let her identity overpowers the character. She served everything that her role demands, that fierce look, emotions of young and naive ganga and how she struggled to became undisputed mafia queen. Alia carries forward all these with powerful dialogues and supreme confidence.
She has shut everyone’s mouth who thought Alia can do only soft and glamorous roles. Javed Akhtar, Neetu Kapoor, Maliaka Arora, Vicky Kaushal and other celebrities have also praised Alia for her stupendous performance.
SLB once again showed his narrative skills that can fuel life to any story and with Alia and Ajay on his side, the story did magic on screen. Ajay as usual showed how well he fits to any role whether a police officer or gangster.
Apart from these two actors, others were also good and did enough to support and uplift the main character. The only disappointing part is that filmmakers fail to show enough struggle of Gangu when she was new to this brothel life.
That could have connected and brought more emotion in the audience, rest is absolutely impressive. The movie is worth watching so go and get your tickets now. The film is released in cinemas on 25th February 2022.
