Storyline

In the hostile territory of Chambal, the land of rebels, politicians, bullets and blood, you either live by the gun or die by the gun. Revolver Rani is set in this hostile world where there are no friends; only fragile alliances and deadly enemies that aim straight for the head. But sometimes you do not need to take lives to finish your enemies. Sometimes you just need to go for their heart. Revolver Rani is a satirical and unusual love story set against the backdrop of politics. It's about Alka Singh (Kangana Ranaut), the leader of a political party and her obsessive love for Rohan Mehra (Vir Das), a rising star of Bollywood. The elections in Gwalior have just finished and Alka's reign has come to an end. Her opposition, the Tomar party, have come into power and want to use their new position to take out Alka, but first, they want to hurt her. The Tomars kidnap Rohan from Mumbai and take him back to Gwalior with the aim to kill him. They are about to pull the trigger when Revolver ... Written by Anonymous

Revolver Rani : All Guns and no Roses
29 April 2014 | by ahwaan_padheeSee all my reviews

In a typical nod to Bollywood-meets-Quentin Tarantino style of film- making , debutante director Sai Kabir explores the dark underbelly of power and politics in the alleys of Chambal with Revolver Rani.The most powerful factor in this enterprise is of course,Kangana Ranaut,essaying the titular character with ferocious intensity.

As the eccentric,moody, and sexually ravenous bandit turned politician Alka Singh who has just lost elections to her wily rival,Uday bhan Singh(Zakir Hussain) she sets the stage on fire whenever she delivers a public speech with her local lingo or when she is on bed with her toy- boy Rohit(Vir Das)- an opportunistic chap who dreams to make it big in Bollywood using her money power.

Shimmering with rustic appeal, Revolver Rani regales with its notoriously built characters- who are like scorpions trying to sting each other and their fragile alliances.Its all about guns and goons where Alka's softer instincts and her dreams to build a home in Behnice(read Venice) with Rohit rarely find a place.The plot derives the sly humor from some interesting elements,viz,the exploitation of Alka's beau in the fame of politics or the repeated banters of Uday's siblings who are always scheming to kill the uncrowned queen of the ravines. Kabir's direction is largely experimental ,signifactly endorsing to Anurag Kashyap and Tigmanshu Dhulia school of cinema.With an edgy narration, he tries to showcase the extreme dimensions of Alka's character- ranging from her impulsiveness to her craze for phasion(fashion)-fun and gun to her vulnerability.While some sequences are over-stretched with redundant dreamy songs , they are compensated with genuine comic moments.A hyperactive TV reporter's speech and a series of ostensibly orchestrated attempts that follow to cover up Alka's low-key nuptial ceremony with Rohit before the media do make up for a hearty laughter.

Kangana reins in her Rani avatar with full gusto.Vir Das is getting typecast with every role as a coc-snorting disillusioned wannabe.Piyush Mishra is superbly authentic as the dubious Mama.Zakir Hussain impresses as the conniving politician of the rival party and he is perfectly aided by the testosterone-charged Kumud Mishra. Overall, its an apt star-cast which lends meaty performances.
