Movie Review: Revolver Rani (2014)

Box Office: Flop

Chambal: the land of rebels, politicians, bullets and blood. In this hostile territory, you either live by the gun…or die by the gun. Revolver Rani is set in this hostile world where there are no friends; only fragile alliances and deadly enemies that aim straight for the head. But sometimes you don’t need to take lives to finish your enemies. Sometimes you just need to go for their heart. Revolver Rani is a satirical and unusual love story set against the back drop of politics. It’s about Alka Singh (aka Revolver Rani), the leader of a political party, and her obsessive love for Rohan Mehra, a rising star of Bollywood.

The elections in Gwalior have just finished and Alka’s reign has come to an end. Her opposition, the Tomar party, have come into power and want to use their new position to take out Alka…but first they want to hurt her. The Tomar’s kidnap Rohan from Mumbai and take him back to Gwalior with the aim to kill him. They’re about to pull the trigger when Revolver Rani turns up all guns blazing and saves his life.

Revolver Rani has a very unique story at its heart that has only ever been hinted at before in Bollywood. This film will bring that story into the limelight and show the viewers what would happen if a political giant fell in love with a Bollywood star and then had to protect him from her enemies. It’s a very authentic satire, littered with dead bodies, love and black comedy that builds up to an iconic climax set in the Shivpuri Bird Sanctuary just before the break of dawn.

Even if she is deadly… Revolver Rani needs love too!

Bollywood Hungama
2.5 “Revolver Rani is a confused film.”
2.5 “Filmmaker Sai Kabir tries really hard to turn crude to class however, despite having all elements he ends up with a sluggish and half-baked plot. Watch it only for the exceptional performance of Kangana Ranaut. “
