3 Reasons Why Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai Kathiawadi is Worth Watching

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Direction

Sanjay Leela Bhansali crafts films that captivate us with their grandeur and colour schemes. The director has experimented with the colour white in Gangubai Kathiawadi. A compelling story has been told when several colours of white are mixed. Even though the drama is set in Kamathipura’s narrow lanes, SLB has given it a spectacular touch, making practically every scene appear to be right out of a fairy tale.

Alia Bhatt’s Performance

Alia owns the character of Gangubai. Whether it’s her innocence as Ganga, the pain she felt when forced to work as a sex worker, or her journey to become a fearsome Gangubai Kathiawadi, the actor shines in every moment. You just want to listen to Gangu when she speaks. The pain and bravery in her eyes and her dominant physicality and dialogue delivery express a lot. It is, without a doubt, Alia’s best performance to date.
