5 reasons to watch Kangana Ranaut’s Simran

Three National awards down the line, films sell on her name alone. The rebel actress Kangana Ranaut is back on the silver screens, and this time with Hansal Mehta’s directorial venture, Simran and it’s already hitting the theatre. If you are planning to make your weekend interesting then go for this amazing movie


Loosely inspired by the life of Sandeep Kaur, a 24-year-old NRI in the US who got arrested for carrying out a series of bank robberies, Kangana plays Praful Patel aka Simran, with similar traits, yet adding her own style to the character. The film also faced trouble when screenwriter Apurva Asrani accused Kangana of taking away his share of writing credits.

The fun quotient

Be it any film, the kind of comedy and mischief that Kangana brings to her character is very admirable. Her characters are unafraid to show that they, like everybody, are humans, who come with their own vulnerabilities. Be it any film, this added fun that Kangana repeatedly brings to any film makes the film worthwhile, and we can hope the case to be the same with Simran.

Hansal Mehta

Hansal Mehta largely acknowledged to be one of Bollywood’s better directors, last helmed the immensely appreciated ‘Aligarh,’ which had starred Manoj Bajpayee and Rajkummar Rao in the lead roles. This film marks his maiden collaboration with Kangana, a very enticing prospect for the average cinephile.

Because it’s Kangana Ranaut

Since the time she has stepped foot in the “slice of life” genre, Industrywaalas and audiences alike are well aware of how she has really come a long way. Although she did not have a good take off with Katti Batti, it could be safely said that she has, in fact, reinvented the genre with films like Tanu Weds Manu 1 and 2, Revolver Rani and Queen. Simran is a film which somewhat belongs to the same league.

Breaking all stereotypes

One would always imagine the life of a Non-Resident Indian (NRI) to be a really western one. In fact, Director Hansal Mehta has a different opinion on it. He is of the opinion that Indian or any migrants take the value system of their homeland with them. Basically, if you move out of India and live in an Indian community, you won’t feel a difference. We are sure that Hansal Mehta must have captured glimpses of that in Simran.
