Critic Reviews for Begum Jaan
Having the 11 women in one frame becomes nothing but a screech-fest. Having Vidya in a film is an asset though. She is an audacious actor, who merits an extra half star for her ability to shoulder a film.
While the movie does get a lot of things right, it just lacks a little conviction in presenting its powerful ideas.
Mukherji doesn't seem to be able to tie together the twin themes of partition and the exploitation of women.
It sounds like a wonderful and welcome alternative to mansplaining - but perhaps it might have been more effective if the movie had opted for subtlety rather than crudeness and the women had been flesh-and-blood rather than paper-thin.
