Strong concept - story could have been much better..
19 January 2018 | by neetaboraSee all my reviews

The movie has a very strong concept especially the way it started when the tortured lady before committing suicide curses the goddess. Also the fact the goddess came inside girl named Bhagwati & she had to face challenges in life until her husband Pagla finally became a good husband as per the curse. This entire concept could be shown in a much much better way, especially the end part. The movie had to project on position of married women at home, & their ill-treatment experienced by the goddess in human form just like Rama, Krishna, etc did when they took human form. How she changed the society, bearing all difficulties would be something good. The back story of Pagla, his past, their coming to city & then going back, all first making money & then killing each other - makes very less sense to the first scene. Otherwise it's a performance power packed movie, good to see Manoj Bajpai & others performing to good!
