Movie Review: Haseena Parkar (2017)

Box Office: Flop

haseenaHASEENA PARKAR is the story of an ordinary woman who is forced to turn to crime due to circumstances. Haseena Parkar (Shraddha Kapoor) lives with her close to dozen siblings in a small house in central Mumbai. She is very close to one of her brothers (Siddhanth Kapoor) who however turns to crime. Haseena gets married to the kind-hearted Ibrahim Parkar (Ankur Bhatia) and yet, she is compelled to face the brunt of her brother’s actions. As her brother turns big in the underworld scene, his enemies also increase manifold. One of the enemies eliminates Ibrahim Parkar in a fit of revenge. On the other hand, the 1993 serial bomb blasts in Mumbai send shockwaves everywhere. Haseena’s brother emerges as one of the key conspirator in this ghastly crime. But he has escaped to Dubai and again, it’s Haseena who falls into trouble. This is when she realizes that she can no longer be a victim – she hits back and emerges as the only ‘aapa’ in Mumbai underworld. What happens next forms the rest of the story.
