Gangubai Kathiawadi Review
The story which is written on Gangubai in the books and which is lying on the internet tells a lot in itself. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has failed to portray that painful and heart-wrenching story of Gangubai on the big screen. Sanjay Leela Bhansali could not show in this film as much as the story based on the real character should be affected. The story of Gangubai has only been told, that too as much as Hussain Zaidi has written in his book. If a film is made on a person who is a real character, then it is very important to do research on it.
This is the biggest negative point of the film that not much research was done to effectively depict Gangubai’s journey from Ganga to Gangu. Had the makers wanted, they could have also depicted Gangubai’s childhood and her relationship with her family, which would have given a boost to the film as to how Ganga decided to leave her family. The one with whom Ganga elopes is immediately entered in the story, neither does it show how Ganga and Ramnik come close to each other. The love story of Ganga and Ramnik could have been depicted a little better.
After this, when Ganga reached Kamathipura, then what happened to her, in the beginning it was also seen missing from the film. There were small things in the film that could be worked on. The relationship between Gangubai and Don Karim Lala could have been presented with more beauty, but the makers failed to do so. What was lacking in the biggest film was that we could not really know about Gangubai, who was Ganga after all, how was her behavior, what did the people around her think about her, how was her childhood?
