Pan Nalin’s female buddy film ‘Angry Indian Goddesses’ takes Bollywood by storm (during a special screening), gets praised by Bollywood biggies.
Several Bollywood films on male buddy friends have been made in the past, and most of them have been successful too (for example, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Rock On, Dil Chata Hai). But this is probably the first female buddy film that is generating so much buzz in Bollywood.
The movie ‘Angry Indian Goddesses’ is an emotional roller coaster ride of a bachelorette party which unfolds characters amidst fun, chaos and a series of complications that follow.
The movie hasn’t released yet, but several Bollywood biggies praised the film after watching it during a special screening. Here are some of the comments.
Javed Akhtar: “You don’t see these things in Hindi cinema! The theme is very powerful and the end is very dramatic. It’s a very good film.
R Balki: “The finest film I have seen in years. It’s an outstanding film. It’s possibly the best film, if not the best, one of the best films to come out…I hope everyone sees it. I hope the censor board does not touch this film. The title is stunning…The film is brilliant. I just wish we all thought like this. I am a huge fan of the film”.
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra: “I think it’s a very important film, for our times, for our cinema. It’s progressive, very progressive. Very entertaining. It manages to do the most difficult thing.. Makes you laugh and cry…When I left the theatre, you could see a dry tear on my cheek and a smile on my face….and it’s been made beautifully, acted beautifully..The music is amazing. It’s definitely a story well-told. Very important story and very relevant for our times, for our contemporary times”.
Arshad Warsi: “The performances are great…I haven’t seen such good performances and such natural scenes. Everything’s fresh as hell!For me, it’s progressive, evolving…I have seen it in Hollywood cinema, because I haven’t seen anyone ‘act’ in foreign films. I see Indians acting in our films, and that’s a sad case. Fortunately, in this film, I don’t see anyone acting, which is wonderful.”
Well, sometime back, Alia Bhatt had mentioned that she along with Shraddha Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra should be doing a sequel to Dil Chahta Hai (2001) as three friends. With the success of this film, I’m sure they will be seriously pursuing this idea.
