The film is set at a time when the country has just tasted independence and then the traumatic phase of partition begins.

Begum Jaan (Vidya Balan), a hookah lover with a sharp tongue, is the owner of a brothel, which she calls her palace. Next, they are shooting in the dark in a losing battle.Be assured, this review is bereft of spoilers. The. With "Begum Jaan", director Srijit Mukherjee remakes his Bengali film "Rajkahini" that starred Rituparna Sen Gupta in the lead role. While Mahesh Bhatt had hopes about releasing the film across the border, it was shattered as this becomes the second film in Pakistan to not have a release in the past one month.

Kohl-eyed and gruff Chunky Pandey as the mercenary Kabir displays a fresh avatar which is impressive, but lacks the wickedness of an antagonist. Balan in an earlier interview with a leading daily denied the reports about the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) asking for cuts from the flick. One should watch the film for that. Distributer go Begum Jaan Mr. Akshaye Rathi told The Indian Express about the box office collection of the figures that "Begum Jaan is directly competing with Vin Diesel's Fast and Furious 8, which would largely affect the box office collection of Vidya Balan's starrer".

Samsung tips huge jump in profit despite corruption scandal
That would be its best quarterly profit in nearly four years and shows a recovery from the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. The report is a counter to the company's costly failure a year ago with the fire-prone Galaxy Note 7 device.

Such a waste of a talented bunch of actors. There's a world of difference between that delightfully poignant classic film and this trying so hard to be deep and meaningful mish mash of a film. Yes, when Begum Jaan was not viewed by their Censor Board, I was ridiculed by some of my close associates. The ruthless king in return sleeps around with every single girl of the brothel. But why blame them alone when the whole film itself is so patently manufactured? The moderate costing of the film should also ensure smooth sailing for its investors.

Fuelled by stagy impulses till the end, its climatic crossfire is elaborate but of little value. Begum Jaan is based in 1940's, but still even after 70 years anything around the partition of India and Pakistan piques interest among the audience.
