Before I start, I have two questions:
.1. Why ‘Simran’? It could easily be Priya, Aisha, Garima, Bhavya, Megha or Ishana. What is the significance of the name ‘Simran’ towards the story?
.2. Is the money made on this film going towards repaying the money that the real Simran (or Sandeep Kaur as she is known in real life) stole who is still lying in jail? If not, what is the use of making her famous? Stupid idea I think, to make a film on that part of her life. What was so dramatic about its story that deserved a movie to be made on it? Or is it just a case of film producers running out of stories to be told and are NOW taking real life incidents and making them into movies.
The posters and the trailers did look impressive. Expected more. ‘Simran-the-movie’ failed to deliver and I’m sure I am not the only one who thinks this way.
Stupid Stupid film!
That said, take nothing away from Kangana Ranaut’s acting prowess, she is one very versatile and very talented actress. She pulled off the character of Simran very well. She did justice to the role given to her. She’s a Natural. I thought the film, or at least the way it was picturized was absolute crap! Go watch the film for Simran-the-character more than Simran-the-film, which feels more like a body with no soul.
Thanks to piracy, I downloaded the movie on torrents and watched it, 3rd day since its release on the 15th September in theaters all over the country.
A 2.5 star rating from me
A ONE TIME watch
