Despite some lack of focus (there is a lot going on) and occasional oversold dramatics (the exception is Brick Lane's Tannishtha Chatterjee as activist Nargis), these Goddesses are crowd pleasers ...
It works, partly because the Indian cinema, accustomed to epics encompassing musical, comedy and tragedy, has a sprawling sensibility and partly because the script, for all its sunshine and sentiment, has actually built to its startling conclusion.
[Nalin has] made an Issue movie -- or rather, an Every Issue movie, and so overloads his jaunty wagon with weighty of-the-moment topics that it splinters into dozens of pieces.
An emphasis on the women's reactions to a variety of discriminatory situations starts to resemble a checklist approach, ticking off situations that cover career challenges, marriage dilemmas and personal relationships.
Pavleen Gujral is a revelation and Sarah-Jane Dias shows admirable poise.
As vital and memorable as it is emotionally stirring and entertaining.
Alas, the story is never supported by a solid screenplay. The film's pace is a problem and though things gear up in the second half, it ends as a loopy mess.
Angry Indian Goddesses is a great film in which women are shown to be people. I only long for the day when such an endeavor is no longer revolutionary.
The leading ladies acted beautifully, and the bonhomie between them seems genuine. For what is being touted as "India's first female buddy film", that is a huge saving grace.
A film that lives up to its title and delivers something rarely seen in Indian cinema.
Ultimately, Angry Indian Goddesses is a decent watch as long as the fun lasts but tumbles downhill with gathering pace as the 'anger' kicks in.
After painstakingly building his premise, [Nalin] runs out of ideas.
