The movie is said to based on the life of Sandeep Kaur, an NRI in the United States who has been convicted of four bank robberies. The actor has also debuted as an additional writer for the film. In a long time, Praful Patel is the most progressive female character that doesn't scream rebel, but subtly acts like one.
But that's only as far as the film manages to go. Kangana's character is flawed however endearing; to the point that one ends up wanting to chide her for the choices she makes and yet also root for her at the same time. A film with no leading male star, its Kangana Ranaut's show all the way. She sits pretty on the Bollywood throne after delivering successful films like "Tanu Weds Manu 2" "Queen" and "Tanu Weds Manu" but after failure of her last release "Rangoon", Kangana's critics got opportunity to criticize her, so now lot more will depend on the box-office result of Simran.
However, there are occasions when even she gets carried away with the constant focus. She gambles, steals, has casual sex (but "only with protection"), and gets panic attack at the mention of marriage. Here, while loitering around the city dotted with casinos, she gets introduced to gambling by chance, when she follows an attractive man she intends to woo to the roulade table. She has 10 days to give back the money. Soon, she finds herself deeper in trouble than ever before.
It meanders along like a conversation over drinks between friends.Talking about the lifetime box office prediction, taking all of Kangana's previous releases into account, Simran is expected to eventually reach the finish line with 22-25 crores in its account. Let's wait and watch as to how the audience reacts to the film now. Hansal Mehta who has been awarded for his movie Aligarh, is happy with the film's response on the first day.
In his 3-star review, Umesh Punwani of Koimoi.com, recommended the film and said, "Watch it only if you've an appetite of digesting unconventional films". A lot of the credit for that goes to the dialogues - witty, amusing and quietly feminist - delivered by Ranaut with disarming candour, devoid of any chest-thumping drama. There is also nothing in her role, apart from foreseeable diction clichés, to suggest a Gujarati anymore than there was in Anushka Sharma's work in "Jab Harry Met Sejal". Here is our Simran movie review. It is nearly like Hansal Mehta is attempting a comic story. Yet, the primary difference between Queen and Simran is while Vikas Bahl didn't seem infatuated with his protagonist, Hansal Mehta does. She is delightful in every scene and in character throughout. Though she is divorced Praful desires to have her own house and is struggling to get a loan passed for the same. If I am entirely here only for movies then why did I reject Khan films? But this doesn't stop her from being ambitious.
