Gulaab Gang is a movie by Soumik Sen and it narrates the story of Rajjo(Madhuri Dixit) who is the leader of the Gulaab gang which takes up issues like rape, dowry system, electricity, education etc. The story unfolds to events where Rajjo decides to fight against Sumitra Bagrecha(Juhi Chawla) who is a corrupt politician and to ensure her win in the election Sumitra kills some members. To this Rajjo chops off Sumitra’s hands. And both are punished for their acts but we see in the end that Rajjo’s lifelong dream of opening a school for children has come true. The acting by Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla is something which cannot be put into words. There are times when you feel that you are one of the characters of the film and the reason you feel so connected is because of the acting done by the cast. Every second of this movie is worth it. You can surely give it a try.
Madhuri Dixit plays the role of Mohini whose father forced her to dance to clear his loans. He even used to make her mather do the same thing and when her mother revolted, he threw acid on her. Mohini is saved by Munna(her love interest).
The film is quite intense with a long storyline. It became a Golden jubilee hit with highest box office collection for the year 1998. it also won 4 Filmfare awards. This film also gained Madhuri her first filmfare nomination. Its also has remakes in Tamil and Telugu. Madhuri Dixit pulled off her role as a suppressed and exploited daughter of a drunken man very nicely. This film also has the superhit song of Madhuri-Ek do Teen….
Hum Aapke Hain Kon
Who can forget Madhuri’s coughing “uho uho” in this film? Her character has stayed in our memories forever. Madhuri Dixit plays the role of a joyful girl pranking around everyone who gets ready to sacrifice her love life and her smile for the happiness of others. you can’t forget the “Didi tera swear dies a” and “Joote do paise lo” songs ever. These songs are still played during weddings throughout the country. The film was a super hit at the box office even after being a remake of Nadiya ke paar.
Sohan, son of the head priest of a village falls in love with Kajri who belonged to lower caste. once when Sohan went to meet Kajri he found out that she has already left the village with his father forever. On their way, Kajri gets separated from her father and raped by a drunken man. She then gets pregnant with the child of that man and delivers a baby. Since she didn’t have food to eat she couldn’t feed her baby because of which her baby dies. She couldn’t even give a proper cremation to her baby and had to burry him. 1 yr later Sohan and Kajri meet again and love blossoms between the two. After clearing some misunderstandings they finally unite.
Madhuri Dixit portrayed Kajri in a very realistic manner and her performance as a helpless mother gives you goosebumps. Although the film didn’t work at the box office but in my opinion, it’s a great film centred at social issues of Rape and caste inequality.
