Somewhere in the Hindi heartland, an ashram of sorts has been set up by Rajjo (Madhuri Dixit) where women armed with axes and sickle and dressed in pink nine yards, mete out the evil and seek out justice for one and all, while making hand-ground spices, hand-woven baskets and hand-woven sarees. But when the party she was campaigning for reveals its true colors. Rajjo knows she has a whole new battle ahead of her. And a force of evil she hasn't encountered in the past - Sumitra Devi (Juhi Chawla). Whose money, bullet, connection driven juggernaut of politics is a threat she hasn't encountered before. Realizing the devil is soon enough going to swamp and silence and encompasses the work she has been striving for all these years, and bring her into a deadlier web of buyout, Rajjo has to battle this new unseen devil. At the ballot box. With something she has lived to learn all these years - The strength of soul. Song. And stick. This season the color of justice is pink.
Not the usual romance & song affair, this cuts a hard edge in a different style. Very spooky & so real & gritty, you'd almost mistake it for a documentary. Villainous Madhuri Dixit's trademark smile is as beautiful as it was in the 80s. This could go down as a Bollywood classic in years to come.
