Begum Jaan audience review: Vidya Balan has delivered a courageous performance

Begum Jaan audience review: Vidya Balan has delivered a courageous performanceā€¯

The story line of Begum Jaan is set in the 1947 partition era, where along with India gaining freedom from the Brits, the rulers which descended from the medieval royal families are rapidly losing importance and the idea of a formal government is something that all the country men are getting used to.

Directed by the National award winning filmmaker Srijit Mukherji, Begum Jaan" sees Vidya in the lead role of a brothel's "madam' set in the backdrop of Indian Independence period of 1948.

On the whole BEGUM JAAN that faces stiff competition from the Hollywood release will have to rely on positive word of mouth to post good weekend figures.

Emphasising that "Begum Jaan" is the readaptation and not the remake of "Rajkahini", Vidya said, "I met Rituparna Sengupta during this visit and she wished me".

Tim Tebow hits second home run for Columbia Fireflies
He went 1-for-3 with two runs and a walk, and is now one shy of Michael Jordan's home run total with Double A-Birmingham in 1994. Tim Tebow is showing off some impressive power hitting in his early days as a minor league baseball player.

For all practical purposes then, it is Chunky's restrained performance that you are probably going to remember because Vidya Balan, after all, can not go wrong.

A key distributor of Indian films in Pakistan - Satish Anand, head honcho of Eveready Group of Companies - told IANS on social media: "Let's put it this way that this project in present day will not reach the screens".

The Central Board of film Censors in Pakistan has promptly banned the film even without watching it. Although a commercial film, the director gives it a touch of documentary movie that is refreshing.

April 2017 is moving with a bulk of entertaining films and will carry much more in upcoming weeks. The edit of the film also looks a little abrupt. Really?? What a creative blunder!

The teams have split the past two matchups, and the Buccaneers lead the all-time preseason series, 9-7. The Browns' last preseason Monday Night Football game was 2014 against the Redskins.

Although she is portrayed as a merciless woman, she is soft from inside. Notable among them are Vivek Mushran as Masterji - the social worker and Ashish Vidyarthi and Rajit Kapoor as politicians Harshwardan and Ilyas.

Ila Arun as the amiable Amma is remarkable, with the right amount of drama and restraint in her performance. The only time she opens her mouth is to scream when Vidya hits her hard. Misthi is just a prop in the film with literally no dialogues.

The film is watchable but only once.
