After a Short hiatus, Hindi cinema comes out with something which carries local flavor within its narrative and is raw and riveting. “Anaarkali Of Aarah” does complete justice to it. Acclaimed journalist Avinash Das in his directorial debut strikes off about the story of a singer cum performer who faces toughest of the troubles, without touching the clichés in between and her journey from a singer to an achiever is something that’s worth watching. The film slowly transits from its plot points beautifully carrying various issues such as harassment and objectification of women, casteism as well as social inequality. Scoring by Rohit Sharma is another winner where even his songs are situational and narrative complimenting. Sanjay Mishra, Pankaj Tripathi and Ishteyaq Khan are simply superb and add perfect support to the lead performer in the film. Swara Bhaskar is the ultimate Hero of the film and she carries the film perfectly on her shoulders, making one of her career’s best after films like “Ranjhanaa” and “Nil Battey Sannata”. A new film with regional flavor which carries the spirit of women empowerment at a new level, which is certainly worth watching!
