Here She Comes

So when was the last time you went to a movie and laughed and cried with the heroine, felt like slapping the people who hurt her, whistled the songs in the aisles and almost threw some coins at the screen been so blown away by the movie?

Well, for me, that moment was watching QUEEN. Went to see this basically because of Kangana Ranaut who more than lived up to expectations. The story is very simple! Rani(Kangana) is a simple middle class girl from Rajouri (Rajouri Garden, New Delhi) whose fiancé ditches her at the altar so she decides to go on her honeymoon alone.Well, it wasn't so simple.

Especially a girl who grew up guileless in a simple world living the life of a simpleton until one fine wintry morning her fiancé (the national award winner Raj Kumar) decided she wasn't cool enough for his new found European – Western lifestyle and decided to call it off.

Her heart breaks into a million pieces, the shards piercing deafeningly into you with her silent sobs. But then she sees her passport and ticket and re-visits her excitement to go abroad on her honey moon and makes a decision. To go on her own.

Shortly after her arrival in Paris, in an interesting series of events she meets her first friend Half- French, Half- Indian Vijayalaxmi ( the one and only Lisa Hayden) who gives her – lessons about sex, men, life, dumping the baggage of guilt, having a good time, letting the past go and most importantly gives her a strong friendship bond. Viji is wild, the antithesis of our heroine and opposites attract like how!

Brimming with confidence our Rani makes it to the next destination on her own, the wily vicarious Amsterdam where she discovers she has to share a room with three men who become the best friends she ever had. How? And what about her fiancé? Do they eventually get married in the end?

Me not telling. You need to watch the film yourself. Even though serious viewers have criticized it for being a “moments” film and lacking a strong script, I think I am willing to wear my romantically cured optics on this one. The technique is pretty good.

The director and cinematographer take great pains to respect your intelligence and should be rewarded for the simplicity in which they have added layers and meanings to simple scenes where not much is said or done but a lot is felt. The Eiffel Tower looking at you wherever you go in Paris scene, the dancing at the taxi driver scene, the last scene…the movie is subtle and in spite of the melodrama, never in your face.

The songs are catchy and upbeat, the characterization is good especially the friends in Paris and Amsterdam and you come away trying to remember someone in your life who fits one or more of them. Watch this movie for itself….correction watch this movie for yourself. You may just re-discover some parts of yourself as you walk with Rani on her journey of self-discovery!
