Farhan Akhtar wants to party with Kangana Ranaut

Farhan Akhtar wants to party with Kangana Ranaut

The story is inspired from the life of Sandeep Kaur, a Punjabi Indian woman who robbed banks in the USA to support her expensive lifestyle.

"In case she approaches us even now, we will certainly extend her help and extend protection whenever required", offered the Maharashtra Women Commission Chairperson. If you do not wish to watch the movie but still wish to know the reason, go watch the 2007 masterpiece, "Johnny Gaddaar", for the answer! Here she was robbing one bank after the other, sans any strategy and without doing much about her appearance and still managed to not get caught.

She becomes criminal after getting involved in gambling at a Las Vegas casino. Her parents want her married, but the money is her main concern. In Simran, the audience is expected to get and like Praful through what she says about herself and her dialogues on relationships, life and so on.

Kangana Ranaut is the hero, heroine and "villain" of Simran and not only does she shine in her role, this lone and "flawed" warrior has begun to feel majestic. Whether it is breaking down in the vehicle after her first robbery or just raising a toast to the world on a rooftop, she beautifully shows that Praful is an enigma, a young woman who thinks from her heart than her head. Her flawless performance covers up for the flaws in the story and her endearing antics makes up for the weakly sketched character that she plays. But in a ridiculous sequence, she willingly nearly sleeps with an American stranger for money, and then refuses at the last moment because he is not using protection!

In the mainstream Bollywood space, Simran treads where only a few films have before. Like emotions, Simran tackles quite a few issues: the xenophobia Indian immigrants to the United States face, gender issues within the traditional Indian framework, biased notions against minorities and the like. But it soon veers towards darker territories. The one place where Simran itself falters is in the motivation behind the protagonist's climactic decision on that highway - it is amusing, but it is not credible. Her performance as said earlier is the best part of SIMRAN.

First of all, Kangana has cleared all the doubt that an Indian lady cannot steal the show by carrying the whole film on her shoulder. Coming from an award winning director like Hansal Mehta, this movie gains more interest. But it suffers from the lack of a strong supporting cast. He tries hard but can not hold a frame with Kangana in it. The idea behind Hansal Mehta's Simran is clearly a more mature, self-assured one compared to Queen's abla naari-turned-independent woman concept. The songs don't make any impact otherwise. Not necessarily. When the Queen plays court, you pay attention. There is nothing that you want to do after Simran, save go back home. Watch "Simran" for a mind-blowing Kangana. She spreads her wings like the tiny butterflies in her stomach and flies, but Simran does not take off.
