Gangubai Kathiawadi Movie Review

Reviewed By: Shyamala Nawab


“Izzat se jeene ka, kisi se darne ka nahi”



Gangubai all the way while Lala’s presence is only to balance the man’s world of the 60s. Shantanu Maheshwari brings a freshness and Jim Sarbh is endearingly enthu.

Initially its sad to see the violence against sex workers on the big parda but all’s never rosy in the Kamatipura world.

You hate Seema Pahwa as SheelaBai and Vijay Raaz as RaziaBai proving they get a 💯 each.

Indira Tiwari as Kamli, the epitome of sex workers tugs at your heart.

The music is true to the times.

With the Kathiawadi theme and Navratri dhol, the comparison is inevitable.. while Deepika as Leela wins hands down with Nagada for charm and presence but it’s Gangubai (Alia Bhatt) who emotes and dares to share her pain in Dholida.

Alia Bhatt as Gangubai leaves a mark on films & history

Haanh, Shikayat Toh Huma ke Blouse Fitting And Matak se Heh.. 🤣

.. but the reform topic is close to my heart and I will always root for the Gangubai of the world!

Alia Bhatt chaand thi aur chaand rahegi!
