Feisty And Powerful

While Mardaani retains the strong sincere no nonsense police protagonist, it is the antagonist which is underwritten. This completely lets down the impact that Rani Mukherjee's Shivani has on us throughout the movie. (more)

Roaring lady rules the show in Mardaani

Despite the film not unraveling with as much wit and creativity as was expected of it, the movie is an attempt to alter the fare of commercial cinema, giving it a more real tinge.

Mardaani is a marked departure from convention.Mardaani is obviously Rani Mukerji�'s film and she dominates the show all the way through.

Mardaani is more in the nature of a police procedural drama than a stunt film about a comic strip cop in which exploding cars and pummeled bodies are flung about in the air like a whole lot of pillows.(more)
