Swara's Anaarkali is casual, raw and real. She never thinks twice before lifting her lehanga or unbuttoning her blouse but at the same time, she is strong enough to protect herself and loud enough to protest if someone dares to touch her against her consent. Avinash has written the script very carefully and boning up the art of casting to give the flick a realistic feel. Apart from Swara, actors Sanjay Mishra and Pankaj Tripathy have also managed to maintain the sheen of their respective characters.
Songs are important for any film and composer Rohit Sharma has delivered the music of the movie perfectly. Rohit who has earlier composed for films 'Buddha in a Traffic Jam' and 'Barefoot to Goa', this time complements the story well. Although playback singers Indu Sonali, Swati Sharma, Pavni Pandey have sung well with their voices syncing perfectly with Swara's performance but unfortunately Rekha Bhardwaj as a singer was not the perfect choice for the genre.
Overall it's a commendable job done by Avinash as he tries to light up an unusual story, transforming it into meaningful cinema. Beyond all pros and cons, 'Anaarkali of Arrah' is a must watch for the stellar Swara Bhaskar.
