Mardaani Review - Mardaani reviewAug 23, 2014NewsMardaani is your typical straight cop vs criminal mastermind movie, and a pretty good one at that. While it uses a familiar theme, its implementation doesn’t leave much to be desired. Sure, all the usual tropes are employed, but you never feel like you’re watching a stale movie.   Rani Mukerji plays Shivani, a senior police officer in the Crime Branch. She lives with her husband and her niece. She also has a godmother-ish relation with a homeless child named Pyari (really). All’s well until Pyari doesn’t show up to school for a couple of days. Upon investigating, Shivani learns that Pyari has been abducted by a sex trafficking ring. She starts digging into this syndicate which sets her up on a collision course with its leader, ‘Walt’.   What seems to be a mildly interesting movie becomes extremely entertaining and thrilling upon the introduction of Walt (Tahir Bhasin). The exchanges between Shivani and him are by far the best thing about Mardaani. The movie picks steam as soon as he introduced and doesn’t let up until the very end which makes Mardaani worth a watch.Sidhant Shori Mardaani Review - Mardaani review Aug 23, 2014
