'Angry Indian Goddesses'

Movie Review By 'G9 Divya Solgama'

'Displays The Various Emotions Of Womanhood...'


In a male dominating society our Hindi films have also been highly obsessed over narrating the tales of male friendship. We had many iconic films celebrating male friendships and when it came to the same, featuring females, there were very few films to name. Though, one did see minor references in few old films like ‘Swarg Narak’ or ‘Shriman Shrimati’ followed by films like ‘Aisha’, ‘Dor’, ‘Cocktail’, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, etc. The friendship bond in these films was minimal, due to which the expectation level reaches at sky level after watching the first promo of ‘Angry Indian Goddesses’, which claims to be one of its first kind of film which celebrates female friendships. Thus, let’s find out whether ‘Angry Indian Goddesses’ will manage to make its right mark and be at par with films like ‘Dil Chahta Hain’ or might end up as one more half-baked product with good concept attached to it.


‘Angry Indian Goddesses’ is a story of Frieda Da Silva (Sarah-Jane Dias) who invites her friends Pamela (Pavleen Gujral), Madhurita (Anushka Manchanda) and Suranjana (Sandhya Mridul) to her home place in Goa. Frieda is getting married and thus wanted her best friends along with her cousin Joanna (Amrit Maghera) and maid Laxmi (Rajshri Deshpande) to be part of her happiness. The girls bond with each other and celebrates Frieda’s happiness until one dark night when hell sets loose. What happens next is what the entire film is all about.

Screenplay & Technicalities:

The story is one liner and works only due to the moments attached with the film. The movie starts with good fun and slows down in the middle portions of the film but as the second half arrives the move sets on its right course. Every character have their own style, problem and habits, making them interesting and enjoyable. There are many engaging moments like the outburst in the start of the film followed by girls cheering Sarah over her dress, discussions related to mannerisms of guys, responsibilities of a girl, humiliation faced by females, Sarah sharing her secret, whole of Adil Hussain track and its aftereffects, etc. All these scenes and enjoyable minute moments keeps you glued with the film. Sadly, the badcensorship, weak screenplay in the middle part of the film and couple of side tracks dilute the intensity of the film. The finale part lacked the hard-hitting factor. The cinematography is apt as per the requirement of the film.


Director Pan Nalin narrates a tale about few female friends and weaves a story around their happenings. He finally gives us a much required film, celebrating the female friendship and also addresses many unspoken topics. It’s due to his sensibilities the movie despite of its flaws, ends up to be a good watch.


Sarah-Jane Dias is superb in the film and looks smashing. Pavleen Gujral entertains you with her simplicity. Sandhya Mridul gives yet another good performance. Adil Hussain in small part is impressive. Amrit Maghera and Rajshri Deshpande lends good support. Anushka Manchanda was not up to the mark. Tannishtha Chatterjee was wasted. Arjun Mathur’s blink and miss appearance was nice.

So bol meri 'Filmi Khopdi' iss film mein kitna hain Dum???

So despite of bad censorship, half-baked screenplay and couple of minor glitches, on an overall basis, ‘Angry Indian Goddesses’ is a decent watch for all those who believe in equality as it displays the various emotions of womanhood. 
Rating - 3.5/5
