Rajjo Review

Story :

Rajjo is a Women centric drama film and happens to be a love story set against the backdrop of the decaying Kothas of Mumbai. Its a journey from a Mujra girl to a house wife. Rajjo is a story of a dance girl Rajjo (Kangna Ranaut) yet her pastoral upbringing has molded her into an altogether a different person quite anlike a Tawaif. who fell in love with 18 years old Brahaman boy Chandu (Paras Arora).

Chandu visited first time to the Kothas of Nagpada with his friends to celebrate his victory, where he meets Rajjo, she mesmerizes him with her powerful Mujra Dance. For Chandu, it is love at first sight. Chandu belongs to a family of Music lovers and Music is the common thread,as is the strong attraction that draws rajjo and chandu together and seals their love.

Begum (Mahesh Manjrekar),who is eunuch and runs the Kotha. He is a strict person but when he came to know about Rajjo’s love he gets them married.

Handa Bhau (Prakash Raj) is a corporator with powerful political connections, Who wants Rajjo at any cost. He tries to break the relationship in all the possible ways.

Other interesting facts remain that Vishwas Patil ,a well known writer and winner of prestigious Sahitya Akademi National Award is turning into Direction a very first time. Uttam Singh is also coming back with his magical music after GADAR “Ek prem katha” & “DIL TOH PAGAL HAI”.and legendery cinematographer Binod pradhan is a cinematographer in this film.

Analysis :


Taking the script into consideration, it has a rather simple plot. A charming young boy is disastrously stricken by a beautiful star nautch girl. The story follows his struggle to marry her and how they fight the mark of disgrace of her social background. There are too many subplots that it is advisable you don’t try to keep a track of them. On the other hand the screenplay seems to be scattered and lacking distinctness. It moves too briskly for my taste. Ending abruptly, there are too many loose-ends left untied at the end of the film. It is disturbing to watch this film as it challenges your intellect.

The dialogues are so out of the world that you feel that the script caters to the interests of aliens for sure. The story moves aimlessly towards the most complicated climax Bollywood has come up in the recent times. The most prevailing thought was why would someone make this film. It would have been more prominent had they titled the film WHY. The makers have no idea what cruelty it is and which level of torture have they inflicted on us.

Sample this dialogue, “Kothey pe 100 logon ki banne se, ghar pe ek mard ko rakhna zyada mushkil.” And in a scene Mahesh Manjrekar says, “Maine Lala ka auzaar kat diya.” It is a given that only Prakash Raj movies have such terrible dialogues, but this movie ousts his worst so far.

Performance :


Kangana Ranaut’s last performance as Kaya was a blessing compared to this. What remains constant is her bad dialogue delivery and over dramatic nautch girl act. Nevertheless she is confident, which isn’t a praise due to the fact that it isn’t appreciable that the girl is bad so confidently. On the other hand Paras Arora has the looks of an charming child which works in his favor. Its not to discourage anyone but the boy doesn’t act and assuming reasonably cannot act. Further crucial factors that made a difference to the though is how-come exceptional actor like Mahesh Manjrekar and Dalip Tahil agreed for the film at all. That’s because artists of their potential shouldn’t bow down beneath their level of achievement under any cost. At the same time Prakash Raj is extraordinary as the villain who makes us laugh accompanied by his continuous caricatures. How-come he's a common figure in all films these days is really a matter of doubt which undoubtedly needs to be transformed.

Final Word:After last Friday's experience of creative blunder Satya 2 , now comes another one in the same line of action yet manages to make it to the theaters this week. The film would amaze utterly to all for sure. It as well gives a clear picture that if not for all but some, art has become just a mode of earning money. I would like to go with 2 star rating for this one.
