Rocky aur Rani ki Prem Kahani is a blast with progressive values at its heart.
I can’t believe the hate this film is getting on this sub. This film is a true blue bollywood mainstem. Its entertaining to It’s core but what makes it better than previous Johar films is its progressiveness, its subtle political take and its full on anti-patriarchal stand. Suprised that people are not talking about this.
This film laterally tells us how. Liberals and Conservatives need to see past their differences and come together. The dolo re sequence is turning point in mainstream bollywood where a machoism is broken down in a glorious Bollywood dance number.
Acting wise Alia did a good job but Ranveer is a riot and a absolute fire cracker. Jaya bachan is spot on in a negative matriarchal role which is antithesis to her K3G role. And boy Dharmendra and Shabana Azami, wow, made my cry. Also loved how the songs proppel the story forward especially the old songs.
Please watch it in cinema halls. This is a big bollywood. Mainstream film in its full glory. Its kind our own Barbie – entertaining and yet breaking traditions.
