Haseena Parker is the first time that Shraddha Kapoor has decided to try a different look. The deglamorized version of her looks promising. This movie also marks as the sibling duo Shraddha and Siddhant Kapoor to work together in the role of siblings on the silver screen.
The movie depicts the life story of a nervous girl transforming into the Godmother of Mumbai. Haseena is born in a family with almost a dozen children. She is close to one of her brothers Dawood Ibrahim. She gets married to Ibrahim Parker yet suffers the brunt of her brother’s underworld conquers. She loses one of her brother, husband, and son in the revenge against Dawood and is further subjected to continuous questioning for her brother’s involvement in the 1993 bomb blast series wherein he is one of the prime conspirators. This incident changes her perspective and she decides to stop playing the victim and emerges as the only “appa” of the city. The story is a string of multiple flashbacks as she narrates her life to the court in her hearing against extortion.
The movie fails to give an insight into the life of Haseena Parkar beyond her infamous identity as Dawood’s sister. The movie is a courtroom drama where Haseena is summoned only once even after multiple cases filed against her.It depicts all the events that lead to rising of Dawood in the underworld. But, does Dawood's family suffer the burns of his actions, is what you expect to see in this movie but all you get in a tanned Shraddha Kapoor with two small kachoris in her mouth, who uses her brother’s name to conduct all her illegal activities and refuses to leave Mumbai even after the death of her husband and son. The judge seems to be a little cuckoo in the head and feels sympathetic towards Haseena.
The actors perform average. You get to see Shraddha in a different avatar, and except the kachoris in her mouth. She delivers as a nervous bride as well as the appa of Mumbai. Siddhant Kapoor is average and is seen on random dinner date and bathtubs when Mumbai burned in 1993.
What’s not there?
It is a two-star as it fails to address the main subject, and focuses on the repercussions of the underworld’s most wanted actions on his sister.
