Product Description

Queen (2014), directed by Vikas Bahl, starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao in the the lead roles, is the story of a naive Delhi-based young girl named Rani. The movie emerged as a great commercial success and the most profitable movie of the year 2014. Queen was titled as one among the top four highest grossing Bollywood movies of 2014.

Rani has always been protected by her family and accompanied by her younger brother every time she steps out of the house. Vikas Bahl's movie Queen starts with the marriage arrangements of Rani with Vijay, who refuses to marry her just two days before their wedding-date. Traumatised, Rani takes a tough decision to lead her life on her own and announces her decision to go to the pre-booked honeymoon tour to Paris and Amsterdam, all alone. Never been out of her house alone in her life before, Rani immediately gets into troubles with police and robbers, soon after which she plans to return to India. There, she meets Vijayalakshmi in Paris, who helps her come out of the problems and also takes her to various beautiful places in the city. They soon become good friends.

Vijayalakshmi helps Rani gain confidence and reveal the beautiful side of living. Enjoying the new adventures in Paris, Rani gets her first revealing outfit on, which by mistake she sends to her ex-fiancé Vijay. After seeing this change in Rani, Vijay starts searching for her.

Queen by Vikas Bahl is about Rani's exploration of new facets of life, new city and scenic beauty of Paris with a new friend, which takes her next to Amsterdam, where she gets the shock of sharing her room with three men. Staying with them, this traditional girl Rani realises how people could be different. With so much new things learnt and experienced, Rani again comes across Vijay, who now finds Rani in a better lifestyle and wishes to marry her again, which Rani has to now decide. The philosophical angles of human lives have been presented with fun and humour sprinkled in Vikas Bahl's film throughout.

Queen was released in 2014 by Shemaroo in Video CD format, with U/A rating. It has a run time of 147 minutes.

  1.  “Queen”: Single Brown Female 1 May, 2014 On
    “Queen”, the poor man’s Yash Chopra film, shot in Delhi, Amsterdam and Paris in 45 days (with Kangana changing her clothes in public toilets to save money on hotels charges) is one of the more “watchable” films this year, so far, along with “2 States.”
    Loosely based on “Alice In Wonderland,” Kangana’s character is refreshingly different than the neurotic wrist-slashing roles she normally plays.
    As a middle-class Delhi-ite confined to the parameters set out by family, she finds an unexpected release (while still retaining her sense of Indian-ess) when she is ditched before her marriage.
    She decides to explore Paris and Amsterdam on a solo honeymoon, learning, that, there is life beyond break-ups.
    She not only discovers new cultures but also, a different perspective on life.
    Intercepted with flashbacks contrasting her mundane, Delhi life with the new found liberty in foreign shores, it’s “English Vinglish” rebooted, though, arguably, Kangana is several shades better than Sridevi.
    Who has not felt the nervousness when ordering a strange dish in a stranger country, scared to ask the intimidating waiters for suggestions, easy target for street-muggers, locals refusing your request for a photographs or the condensing attitude of relatives?
    Kangana’s sans make up look, her inane Santa Banta jokes, awkward (but confident) dance steps, her disbelieving expressions at a neighbour’s loud love-making, her inexperience in Amsterdam over the adult toys to her first kiss with an Italian: all speak of the director’s artistic streak.
    The leggy Lisa Hayden playing a half Indian friend/guide in Paris, shines and so do the three back-packers she meets in Amsterdam : The Russian with a cause, the Japanese with a past and the French-African and finally: Amsterdam’s Pakistani prostitute with a golden heart ( its never their fault that they are in this business right?)
    National award winner Rajkummar Rao is effective as the repulsive, chauvinist fiancé and the film is peppered by performances from Kangana’s younger brother who cant keep his eyes off Lisa’s cleavage on a web-cam chat, her parents with the right amount of anguish at the daughter’s plight and Kangana’s grandmother who assures her that time will heal this episode, citing her own example of a broken heart.
    Kangana finally accepts the western world for what it is, not quite understanding it but still embracing it, grateful for what it has made her.
    It’s in the vague (but satisfying end) we applaud her when she assertively brushes aside what seems her chance at happiness.
    We cannot help but share her gratification in her newly found, well-deserved freedom, awakening her dormant strengths while exposing her to a world she never imagined, existed.
    Cinematography falls short at many places, as to be expected of the low budget.
    Music by Amit Trivedi is excellent but not outstanding, with the now inevitable Punjabi wedding song.
    A remix of the 70s film “Anhonee” is included.
    Though “O Gujariya” is popular in the party circuits, my personal favourite is “Harjaiyaan.”

  2.  Queen is a royal treat 8 June, 2014 On
    ‘Thank you’ – uttered by Kangna Ranaut to Rajkumar Rao in the climax scene will never be the same after watching the movie, Queen. These two words sum up the entire film and you just can’t resist expressing gratitude to director Vikas Bahl for giving us those wonderful 146 minutes of catching up with Rani, the ‘Queen’.

    When it comes to films based on a particular character, the choice has been quite limited. Saeed Akhtar Mirza, popularly known as the director of TV series, ‘Nukkad’ seemed to be fond of naming his films after his lead characters. For instance, Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyu Aata Hai? (Naseeruddin Shah), Salim Langde Pe Mat Ro (Pawan Malhotra), Arvind Desai Ki Ajeeb Dastaan (Dilip Dhavan), and Mohan Joshi Haazir Ho! (Naseeruddin Shah). Furthermore, there are films like Mrinal Sen’s Bhuvan Shome (Utpal Dutt), Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Anand (Rajesh Khanna), Guddi and Mili (Jaya Bhaduri).

    Well, there were films like ‘Julie’, ‘My friend Pinto’, ‘Barfi’ and many masala potboilers like ‘Rowdy Rathore’ named after the lead characters, but somewhere down the line, we seem to have lost touch in making films completely based on a particular character. Phew! Pardon the digression, but the point one is trying to drive home is that you watch films like Guddi, Mili, Anand, or Bhuvan Shome, these characters refuse to leave you. Vikas Bahl’s ‘Queen’ achieves this with awe-inspiring perfection.

    The character, Vijay Laxmi played by Lisa Haydon makes you yearn for an encore in the second half (just like the kid brother of Rani and her father hope for). She is a perfect combination of sensuality and sensibility or rather the cliché of beauty and brains. Rajkumar Rao delivers yet another commendable performance and the best part about his performance is that you actually start hating him as the movie progresses. All said and done, Queen is Kangna’s film, right from the opening peppy number by Amit Trivedi to the closing credits.

    One more digression here (how about not talking about Queen at all here?) When the climax of Sholay was being shot, Sanjeev Kumar felt so bad for Jaya Bhaduri’s character, Radha that he requested the director to include a scene where he can hug her while she mourns the death of Jai. Obviously, the request was never considered, but now that you’ve read this, you’ll be able to relate to what Sanjeev Kumar meant when you watch the scene where Rajkumar Rao’s character, Vijay ditches Rani at a café. The way Kangna emotes during this particular scene and the wonderful montage of her drunken scene are scenes that will go on to become part of acting textbooks. Well, she reminds of the coming-of-age story of Guddi. Oops! There I go again, talking about my favourite classic films. Blame it on Queen.

  3.  My vote – a definite watch for every girl and parents who have a daughter ! 14 May, 2014 On
    I won’t say it’s one of Kangana’s best, cos i think she has many more hits to give us. With people like Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane involved with the movie, it was definitely on my must-watch list and I did see it!

    To be honest, I wasn’t disappointed. There were amazing songs, thanks to the ever awesome Amit Trivedi...with his trademark sufi and fusion music. Kinda gave me a Dev D feel.. and Kangaga.. was of course the star of the movie.. i felt it was more about the emotions than the actual story itself.. it was those little little situations people get stick in .. which were shown with a very practical and realistic approach. .. minus all the drama!

    My vote – a definite watch for every girl and parents who have a daughter

  4.  Entertainer 9 June, 2014 On
    Cast: Lisa Hayden Rajkumar Rao Kangana Renaut
    Director: Vikas Bhel

    Boy refuses to marry and conveys it the previous day of marriage. Not getting this to her head, Rani sets out to rediscover herself in Paris. An interesting journey starts from this point.

    Kangana breathes the role and dialogue delivery is great. Humor is good in this simple script. "Living life on your terms" defines this movie.
