Rani Mukerji in all new avatar for Mardaani

Published on by sumit

Rani Mukherji’s new avatar released for the movie, Mardaani, has been receiving rave reviews. She is seen dressed in Black Tunic without make up. Her toughened persona of a Cop who is out to bust the child trafficking has been drawing positive feedback from hoi polloi. Rani plays the role of a strong-willed cop who is set to release an adolescent girl from the clutches of flesh trade. Child trafficking is one the issues dealt in many Bollywood films.

The censor board has, however, tried to scrape a few scenes of the film that contained some expletives and a rape scene, they thought was unsuitable for family viewing. This is Rani Mukerji’s first film post her marriage to the Yash Raj Film’s scion, Aditya Chopra. Unlike her other films, this movie will portray Rani as a bold cop who won’t leave no stone unturned, to imprison the racket responsible for child trafficking.

This is one of the most atrocious crimes against the young girls. This movie could be an eye opener against such a crime. Rani Mukerji’s new look is unglamorous yet resolute. This year is going to see many women oriented movies, with a female actor in the main lead. Bollywood is marching on a different beat with movies such as these that have a strong protagonist in the female lead. Directors like Mira Nair and Tanuja Chandra have always made movies with strong female themes and stories inspired from real life. Yash Raj Films is also diversifying in a similar direction.

It is refreshing to watch a movie with a realistic theme that makes the audience ponder over these issues. Mardaani is a serious, crime, action film and Rani Mukherji is not playing it safe post her marriage at all. Rani Mukherji as a cop will be mouthing a series of expletives and probably will be seen doing some hard hitting action scenes and dialogues.

We can expect some real drama and purposeful cinematic tones in this film. Rani Mukerji will mostly be sporting solid colour tunic, formal cop uniform, and unisex shirts and trousers. Nothing fancy about her look in this film. She plays the role of a wife and a cop. Though her character has many shades in different role she plays as a toughened, relentless cop and an ideal wife, her look will still be understated in both the roles.

Rani Mukerji seems indefatigable post marriage. She has embarked a new journey and is excited to do a different role that is in complete contrast with most of the previous roles she has done in Bollywood films. This movie is slated to be released in August this year. Except for Rani Mukerji, this movie does not have an ensemble cast, which is usually a typical of Yash Raj Films.

Yash Raj Films has steered in a different direction with this film, by making an attempt to make women centric film, which is supposedly based on a true story of a female cop who has busted many rackets of child trafficking.
