(Madhuri Dixit, who appears in “Gulaab Gang”)

If you are in the mood for some soul-searching and contemplation about social injustices this month, don’t miss the two Bollywood films releasing at Ster-Kinekor this week. Both Queen and Gulaab Gang are scheduled to be screened at Ster-Kinekor Gateway in Durban from Friday (March 7).

Queen follows the story of Rani (Kangana Ranaut), a 24-year-old Punjabi girl, who is living in Delhi. She is from an ultra-conservative family and her brother escorts her everywhere for her own safety. However, Rani’s world is shattered and turned upside down, when her fiancé (Rajkummar Rao) is killed tragically in a motor car accident.

Instead of crying and lamenting about her desperate situation, Rani decides to focus her energies on healing herself and her broken heart. She goes on her planned honeymoon alone to find herself and what the future holds. As she travels the world, she meets wonderful new people and gains worldly experience on her own personal journey of rediscovering her true identity. Queen stars Kangana Ranaut, Rajkummar Rao, Lisa Haydon and Mish Boyko. The film is directed by Vikas Bahl and produced by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane.

Gulaab Gang is based on the Gulabi Gang, a group of Indian women vigilantes and activists recognisable from their pink saris, who are fighting the social injustices prevalent in the Bundelkhand region of central India. In Gulaab Gang, one of the women from the group takes a stand against corruption to create a sanctuary for abused women, while battling a crooked politician. The film stars Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla, Priyanka Bose and Vinitha Menon.
