'Gulaab Gang' Tweet Review: First day, first show
'Gulaab Gang' will see two arch rivals of 90s Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla sharing the screen space for the very first time.

New Delhi: For those who grew up in the 1990s, watching a movie with arch rivals Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla would perhaps be unthinkable.

Two decades later producer Anubhav Sinha has managed a casting coup of sorts by casting the reigning Divas of 90s together for a film. Inspired on social activist Sampat Pal's life, debutant director Soumik Sen's 'Gulaab Gang' has Madhuri Dixit playing Rajjo, who along with a gang of spirited women fights injustice in her village. Juhi Chawla plays the shrewd politician who is against Rajjo's growing influence in that area.

While the makers have stated that the film is work of fiction and bears no resemblance to Smapat Pal's character, the activist has alleged that it shows her in bad light.

So is the film really a work of fiction? Is Soumik Sen's film not based on Sampal Pal's 'Gulabi Gang'? Will Madhuri and Juhi's onscreen timing work in favour of the film? Shomini Sen of IBNLive.com was inside the theater to find out.

10:21 AM: Its all about women power this Friday at the movies. Stay tuned for the tweet reviews of #GulaabGang and #Queen today.

10:26 AM: First up, tweet review of @bangdu's #GulaabGang featuring the two divas of '90s @MadhuriDixit and JuhiChawla.

10:38 AM: Very impressive animation with the introductory credits. Sets the mood of the film well. #GulaabGang

10:46 AM: Never imagined a group of pink saree clad women could look so threatening! #WomenPower #GulaabGang

10:54 AM: In a performance driven film, do you really need the regular song-dance routine? #GulaabGang

11:08 AM: Transition from one scene to the other isn't smooth. #GulaabGang

11:28 AM: Remember the actress who featured in Tanishq ad recently? Theater actress Priyanka Bose is brilliant in her role. #GulaabGang

11:38 AM: Barring the songs and dance routine (which are unnecessary) #GulaabGang packs a powerful first half.

11:50 AM: And @MadhuriDixit does her own playback as well. Is there anything this amazingly talented woman can't do? #GulaabGang

12:05 PM: The issues that are being highlighted in the film are all known. Corruption, rape, red tapism, inflation, poverty. #GulaabGang

12:35 PM: What @iam_juhi is playing in #GulaabGang is a stereotype. Yet its a delight to watch her as the antagonist.

12:43 PM: Madhuri performing some Akshay Kumar type stunts. In a pink saree. Okay then.#GulaabGang

12:51 PM: #GulaabGang gives out a powerful message to the society about how women themselves need to be their biggest strength.

12:52 PM: While the issues are all known, #GulaabGang perhaps attempts to give an alternate solution to it.

12:53 PM: Both @MadhuriDixit and @iam_juhi deliver a super performance in #GulaabGang. Good to see Juhi doing something out of her comfort zone.

12:54 PM: Special mention to Priyanka Bose. She is superb in her role. Hope we get to see her in more films in the near future. #GulaabGang

12:56 PM: My only problem with the film are the songs. They aren't the best and just mar the narrative in so many ways. #GulaabGang

12:57 PM: Watch #GulaabGang for its spirited theme and for the two leading ladies. They don't disappoint.

12:58 PM: Thanks for staying with us throughout the tweet review of #GulaabGang.
