Gangubai Kathiawadi is directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali who has good and hit films to his name. There is a lot of curiosity among the audience about this film starring Alia Bhatt.
The story of the film revolves around Ganga (Alia Bhatt) who is born in Kathiawar to an affluent family. She wishes to act in films. At the age of 16, she falls in love with her father’s accountant, Ramnik Lal.
Ramnik Lal and Ganga escape to Mumbai and get married, but after marriage, Ganga’s life becomes hell. She is sold to a brothel in Kamathipura for Rs 500. She is forced to start prostitution.
Alia Bhatt played the role of Gangubai in the film. At the same time, Ajay Devgn has been seen in the role of Rahim Lala, who is Gangubai’s brother. However, Don Karim Lala‘s name has been changed to Rahim Lala in the film.
This film has been released in theaters today. If you are planning to watch this film of Alia to know Gangubai’s life more closely, then before that read this review, so that you can know whether you want to watch this film or not.
The story that is written about Gangubai in the books and found on the Internet speaks volumes in itself. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has failed to portray Gangubai’s painful and harrowing story on the big screen. Sanjay Leela Bhansali couldn’t show as much in this movie as the story based on the real character should be affected. Gangubai’s story has only been told, as much as Hussain Zaidi has written in his book. If a movie is made about a person who is a real character, then it is very important to do research on that person.
Watch or not – After a long time, a movie has arrived that keeps you completely hooked. You will not feel anywhere in the movie that you can skip the movie. If you are a fan of Alia Bhatt then you must not miss this movie and even if you are not her fan this movie will compel you to become her fan.
