Heeramandi Review: Sanjay Leela Bhansali Shines as a Genius and her Proud Queens

Name: Heeramandi

Director: Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Cast: Aditi Rao Hydari,Richa Chadha,Sonakshi Sinha,Sanjeeda Sheikh,Sharmin Segal,Manisha Koirala

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar centres on the pre-independence lives of courtesans and their role in India’s freedom.

Plot: The lives of the courtesans in Heeramandi, The Diamond Market, are the main subject of Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar. Shahi Mahal’s huzoor is Mallikajaan (Manisha Koirala). Her sister is Waheeda (Sanjeeda Sheikh), her daughters are Bibbojaan (Aditi Rao Hydari) and Alamzeb (Sharmin Segal), her new huzoor of Khwabgah is Fareedan (Sonakshi Sinha), and her unrequited lover is Lajjo (Richa Chadha).

Although Alamzeb wants to be a poet, Mallikajaan wants her youngest daughter to become a prostitute because that is the fate of a courtesan’s daughter. She has a covert romantic interest in Tajdar, the Nawab of Baloch (Taha Shah Badussha). Fareedan mediates Alam and Taj’s romantic relationship because he has resentment towards Mallikajaan. Waheeda will stop at nothing to disgrace her sister, even if it means joining forces with Fareedan, because she is fed up with the way her sister treats her. Participating in the uprising against the British is Bibbojaan. In order to divulge information, she keeps up her relationship with Wali Sahab (Fardeen Khan), who is in close communication with the British officers.

Will the ladies’ hostility between one another lead to their demise and end their entire existence, or can they band together and join the Indian uprising? See Heeramandi to learn more.

What works for Heeramandi?

The brilliance Sanjay Leela Bhansali delivers once more. There are a million ways that Heeramandi exudes genius. The vision is somehow even greater than the enormous sets. When discussing an SLB creation, having an eye for detail is a given. Particularly Sakal Ban, Tilasmi Bahein, and Ek Baar Dekh Lijiye are great songs. Your eyes will begin to sparkle because of how precisely and intricately they are recorded. There is nothing like the world-building. You can anticipate being completely absorbed in the Heeramandi universe for approximately five hours. Conversations are just wonderful. The star of the show is them. In actuality, the Heeramandi Queens are diamonds. There’s so much to be grateful for with Sanjay’s dream project. To put it simply, it’s possibly the most polished work the filmmaker has ever done.

What doesn’t work for Heeramandi:

She doesn’t have many ineffective habits. The entire uprising could have been handled in a lot more gritty way, and the visual effects could have been done a little better. If not, Heeramandi is a viewer’s paradise. Being alive during the era of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the great, is a privilege and an honour.
