Ratings:3/5 Review By:Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN

Angry Indian Goddesses contains every cliché you’d expect to see in a film that’s been billed as ‘India’s first female buddy movie’. From women getting facials together, to playing Truth or Dare…from talking frankly about sex and ogling the dishy neighbor, to polishing off a box of cupcakes…the film ticks all the boxes. Yet it seldom feels contrived, thanks to the natural performances of its ensemble, and director Pan Nalin’s non-intrusive, observational style of filming. Still I’m going with three out of five for Angry Indian Goddesses. Using humor and pathos, it raises pertinent questions. You’ll be happy to spend two hours in the company of these ladies.

. As long as the film stays with the lives of its characters, it does well. In the first half, it is breezy, its vocabulary remains conversational and is genuinely palpable. Alas, the story is never supported by a solid screenplay. The film’s pace is a problem and though things gear up in the second half, it ends as a loopy mess. When the predictable climax hits with all its cliches, you feel disinterested. Angry Indian Goddesses is a decent watch if you keep you expectations in check. It is a perfect example of how anger does very little good afterall.

Even if there are too many of them to focus exclusively on and the issues remain predictable, Angry Indian Goddesses triumphs in its collective chemistry and sisterhood. Considering the treatment it got by the censor board, I don’t know if Angry Indian Goddesses changes anything. Still, it’s so good to see a film that revels in womanhood as much as this one.

Pan Nalin’s Angry Indian Goddesses, on one level, is a charmingly jaunty film powered by peppy performances. But under its cool, casual and cheeky chitchat on matters both saucy and solemn, it is also a trenchant study of a society festering from within. Angry Indian Goddesses is a must-see and not only because it is unlike anything Hindi cinema has produced before. It strikes a fine and rare balance between thematic gravitas and breezy entertainment.

These are flesh-and-blood women, and the film is delightful till they stay that way. Being labelled ‘goddesses’ seems like a ploy to reel in non-Indians looking for exotica, something the director does well. It doesn’t do these lovely ladies any favours.

Ultimately, Angry Indian Goddesses is a decent watch as long as the fun lasts but tumbles downhill with gathering pace as the ‘anger’ kicks in. Watch it for its good acting, the director’s bravery in picking his premise and protagonists, but don’t expect a statement on feminism or a revolutionary Bollywood film’. You will be sorely disappointed.

    Awe my Goddesses! [3/5]

    As a cinema-lover largely all ears for the Hindi film Industry’s progressive inclinations for a change, there is always a sense of pride, surprise and triumph floating in my mind while watching celebrated filmmaker Pan Nalin’s bracing, pulsating and unforeseen new film ANGRY INDIAN GODDESSES. Films on male-bonding look so archaic, parched and superfluous now. ANGRY INDIAN GODDESSES marks the amazing arrival of Glocal [An amalgamated term for the new gene with Global & Local both the aspirations and establishments] Indian women in Bollywood. .Here, in ANGRY INDIAN GODDESSES, it all looks like an out in the open protest against the pigeonhole portrayal of Indian female in films. Watching as many as seven sensibly scintillating leading ladies of ANGRY INDIAN GODDESSES smash every formula-fitting approach, erect a brand new attitude and establish a much-needed representation of the new, contemporary and modern breed of the other ‘equally-deserving’ half of the human race, is definitely one of the most satisfying moments Bollywood has seen this year, and in recent times. Had the writer-director been more alert, firm and uncompromising with the plot especially towards the invented end and more in-synced with the convincingly real performances of the ladies; the film would have gone beyond just being a trying path-breaker to a confirmed pacesetter.

    The story brings women hailing from varied fields of life, stuck in their own crisis and now finding solace, support and strength in each other’s comradeship under one roof in Goa. Freida (Sarah Jane-Dias) is getting married. She has just left her latest photography assignment for a phony fairness brand. Mad (Anushka Manchanda) is trying her hard to impress the world with her kind of music. Suranjana (Sandhya Mridul) is strict and a street smart business-woman trapped in a land-dispute with an NGO runner, on same lines as the Singur land acquisition controversy. Pammi (Pavleen Gujral) is your typical rich housewife who has sold all her dreams to please the standard well-off family of her husband. Joanna (Amrit Maghera) is an aspiring actress forced to just wear cleavage-showing Cholis and call for help to ensure a tensed situation for Hero’s clap-generating entry in the name of acting. Then there are Lakshmi (Rajshree Deshpande) – the overtly fashionable maid and the simply-dressed yet strong-headed Nargis (Tannishtha Chatterjee)- an unexpected entry with lots of new revelations to take place.

    The best from ANGRY INDIAN GODDESSES comes in form of lightening moments where the girls share their experiences with the world outside those walls, where they recall their young-age aspirations to rock and shock the world now resting somewhere beneath the new responsibilities tossed upon them. The natural-‘no camera around’-freely flowing performances make ANGRY INDIAN GODDESSES an amazing journey to watch. In one of the scenes, the Sanskari housewife friend asks [spoiler alert] her lesbian friends, “woh toh theek hai, par tum log karte kaise ho?” ANGRY INDIAN GODDESSES is packed with such rare pleasures, but only till it doesn’t get up to hold the flag in opposition to all the possible discriminations, crimes and intolerances against women in one film. The film drastically gets derailed from being naturally good to melodramatically substandard. Rape, murder, gender discrimination; you name it you’ll have it tackled here in the most hurried and comfortable manner. Till the time you reach the crowd-pleasing climax, you only wish Pan Nalin had stopped it exactly where he decided to start it. You can’t settle for what you are fighting against.

    On the whole, ANGRY INDIAN GODDESSES is amazingly real, relatable and something you don’t see very often on Indian screens. Out of these seven fiery, fearless and ferociously real leading ladies, each one will have her own share of approval and admiration in your heart. The film is not the reason to watch them; they are the reason to watch the film. [3/5]
