HASEENA PARKAR STORY: This courtroom drama tries to decode the life and prison actions of India’s most needed fugitive – Dawood Ibrahim’s late sister Haseena Parkar, who allegedly headed her brother’s crime syndicate in Mumbai and ran proxy enterprise for him.
HASEENA PARKAR REVIEW: Because the movie shuttles between previous and current, it passionately lists down the gang wars and occasions that led to Dawood’s rise as a criminal offense lord-terrorist and its repercussions on his household, together with his sister Haseena, who was summoned to the Courtroom solely as soon as (2007), regardless of the various offences registered in opposition to her.
By the way, the latest arrest of Dawood’s brother Iqbal Kaskar (‘whereas he was having biryani’), from his Mumbai residence on costs of extortion, made one marvel why the larger fish continues to roam scot free. Whereas the siblings are clearly no saints, do they someplace bear the brunt of belonging to the D household? This disappointingly shallow biopic tries to decipher this debatable thought.
Nevertheless, given Apoorva Lakhia’s poor route and penchant for making movies on Mumbai’s underworld dons that experience on sensation over substance, all you get is a tanned Shraddha Kapoor who appears to be like like she’s holding two kachoris in her mouth. The actress is ‘fortunate’ to be getting biopics (she is going to essay the position of badminton ace Saina Nehwal subsequent), given her restricted performing abilities. However allow us to make clear, Shraddha shouldn’t be the weakest hyperlink right here.
The therapy, jarring background rating and setting, is equally sloppy as Dongri, Nagpada, Dubai, Mulund, Bhandup…all look the identical. Additionally, the stereotypes are laughable. Siddhant Kapoor (badly dubbed) as Dawood, roams round aimlessly in Dubai, goes on candlelight dinners with random ladies and chills in his bathtub as Mumbai burns (1993). The choose inspecting Haseena Parkar’s case, comes throughout as a nincompoop.
You stroll into the movie, hoping to grasp the controversial journey of a lady, who grew to become the aapa (elder sister) or the Godmother of Nagpada. However all you get is a foolish costume drama that inadvertently victimises and thus justifies Haseena’s illegal actions and warped sense of energy underneath the pretext of ‘defending her household’. Whereas the intention continues to be subjective as it is a filmmaker’s interpretation of a personality, the movie’s largest downside is its lack of depth.
The crime drama fails to supply an perception into Haseena’s life in anyway as a person, past her notorious identification as Dawood’s sister, who dropped her bhai’s identify to settle property disputes, extort cash from builders and so on.
