Heeramandi janta review

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar was recently released on Netflix, and while some love it, there are quite a few who aren't too happy. Here's what the Janta is saying about it!

India's auteur filmmaker, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who is loved for his signature style of filmmaking, recently made his OTT debut on Netflix with Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar. This series tells the tales and befalls of the courtesans in pre-independent India who, like the country's fall, also lost their identities at the hands of the Britishers. Apart from extravagant sets, lavish costumes, and stunning cinematography, the eight-episode series also features an ensemble cast of Manisha Koirala, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjeeda Sheikh, Richa Chadha, Shekar Suman, Taha Shah Badussha, Sharmin Segal Mehta, and many more. The series also marks Manisha Koirala reuniion with Bhansali after 28 years when the duo worked together on Khamoshi: The Musical in 1996 which was also SLB's debut feature film. Heeramandi also marks Fardeen Khan's return to screen after 14 years! 

The Janta has mixed reactions to this series. While some absolutely loved everything about the show, from the direction and acting to aesthetics, others aren't quite happy. People have different favorites in terms of actors, scenes, and what they liked in the show but Sharmin's performance particularly seems to not hit the mark for the Janta.
