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.

The 134-minute long Begum Jaan has Vidya Balan in good form, but it lacks cohesiveness as a complete story. It shies away from delving deep into the theme, but you may appreciate its documentary-like feel.
