The film casts Rani as Shivani Shivaji Roy, an insightful and a foxy cop working at the Mumbai crime branch unit. Shivani sets the sail on an enslaving hunt for a girl and what leads to a cat and mouse trap between a ruthless mafia kingfish and a fearless cop. The character is apparently based on a real lady police officer who busted several child trafficking cases in the city. The movie drifts into the dark and desperate world of child trafficking and straggles between Mumbai and Delhi. The film also has some spine-chilling dialogues to add the tone of the scornful trafficking world. The movie is based on child trafficking, apparently, inspired from high-profile human trafficking cases. While the makers of the film are calling it to be a piece of fiction, but there is a stroke of reality in every scene. Rani Mukherjee carries the fierce-cop guise and attitude quite finely from chasing buses to running after criminals to wiping blood off her face, she does it all deftly.
Reportedly, Rani Mukherjee needed to lose 12 to 13 kg for Mardaani and had to undergo through a rigorous training. She is being trained by Physical trainer Samir Jaura, who is also training Priyanka Chopra for her upcoming movie Mary Kom and had trained Farhan Akhtar for Bhaag Milka Bhaag. Rani has worked exhaustingly for this movie working keenly on her stunts, kicks and fitness. She certainly has shed lot of sweat and blood to fit in to the character of Shivani Shivaji Roy and it has paid off quite eloquently. She is brutal and effective. Rani’s role of a cop fades out all her previous feminine and homely portrayals to sideline bringing a spot on to this fearless and enduring character setting up a milestone in her career.
The plot of this movie is focused on Women empowerment, the story is written by Gopi Puthran, Directed by Pradeep Sarkar, and is under the Yash Raj Banner so you can see Mardaai Movie Reviews as well. Mardani looks like a typical Bollywood flick, full of banality. Mardani is scheduled to release on 22 August 2014. We can expect some new Bollywood Masala from this movie and belive that Mardani might beef up Rani’s career.
