She is back. Juhi Chawla, Kurkure aunty (seen widely in Kurkure commercials of late), is back to portraying larger-than-life-roles on silver screen. Juhi who is known for goody-goody roles in films from ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’, ‘Hum Rahi Pyaaar Ke’ and ‘Darr’ unleashes her negative streak as a greedy politician in ‘Gulab Gang’ and proves her versality.
Her wicked smile, ruthless behaviour( asking a man to scroll under the knees of a woman) and her satirical dialogues, makes it a commendable performance. Apart from praising director Abhinav Sinha, Juhi should take the credit for doing lot of homework to come up with a menacing performance, which is USP of this women-centric movie, that runs in contrast to her soft lover girl image.
Even B-town directors, who worked with her, would have been taken by surprise, since he couldn’t exploit her hidden talent. Hat’s off Juhi!
