Director: Soumik Sen

Cast: Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla

Story Line: Fearless Rajjo, the character played by Madhuri Dixit runs a shelter-house for abused women in western region of northern India, where she teaches the feminine gender to stand up for their rights and fight for justice.

Besides making them aware of their rights Rajjo makes sure that these women become self-dependant. These women are also given training of Indian martial arts. The ladies are the embodiment of ‘Goddess Durga’, who always fight for justice and stand against wrong.

As the story progresses, Rajoo meets cunning politician Sumitra Devi played by Juhi Chawla, who can go to any extent to be in power. Being unaware of Sumitra Devi’s intention, Rajjo decides to extend support to her in the election.

Rajjo later understands that Sumitra Devi just wants to use her heard earned reputation for self benefits. Rajjo then decides to contest election against Sumitra Devi. What happens after the election forms the rest of the story?

Movie review: Director Soumik Sen has used the power of Madhuri’s expression to the fullest as the dancing queen has given a power packed performance. In some parts of the movie, the writer- director seems confused and has not been able to do justice with the movie’s plot. 

This is the first time Juhi is seen playing a negative character and she looks pretty convincing as a politician. But her bubbly look and soft image does not go well with the character of the cunning politician. The story line is tight and it makes you glued to your seats. While the story is awesome, dialogues are not effective. Though this film has all the necessary ingredients to be a Bollywood hit but you will still feel that there is something missing.
