Shraddha Kapoor starrer ‘Haseena Parkar’ has been released in cinemas. The film is based on the life of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Hassena Parkar alias Appa.
Story of the movie: Haseena Parkar, gangster-turned-terrorist Dawood Ibrahim’s sister, is accused of running the business of the D-Company, acting upon the orders that he passes sitting in Dubai. While she is being tried in the high court, she escapes conviction due to lack of evidence. The film, Haseena Parkar, traces this journey of a brother-sister duo of Dongri’s Kaskar family of 14 people. While the brother’s illegal ways force him to leave the country, Haseena goes on to playing the ideal housewife and living happily with her husband and four kids. But a few inadvertent, unfortunate incidents destruct her life. In those helpless times, is it power that Haseena Parkar intentionally seeks to save herself? Is her ‘bhai’ instrumental in making her the Godmother of Nagpada, also called ‘Aapa’? Is she really guilty of running his illegal business in his absence? What happened next for this you have to watch the film.
Star Performance: Shraddha Kapoor delivers a brilliant performance as Haseena Parkar. Besides Shraddha, her brother Siddhanth Kapoor who plays the role of her brother Dawood had an extremely strong role in the film. Others like Ankur Bhatia and Rajesh Tailang have done justice to their roles.
Music Direction: Music hardly has any role to play in the film. Even the songs which are present in the film cannot save the film. Also the background score is okay.
Direction: The film’s direction is good. However, the story of the film and screenplay is quite weak. Director Apoorva Lakhia had a well-researched script in the form of Haseena Parkar, which no one has ever attempted to make, still, he failed to do justice to the script. As if there is still scope, the jumpy narrative in the first-half leaves you confused and irritated.
Watch Or Not: You can watch it once!
