Shakeela (Kajol Chugh) is just another teenage girl growing up in a lush green hamlet of South India. Despite their abject poverty and her mother’s constant bickering, she finds joy in the fun-filled fishing trips with her father and taking part in school plays. But all of that changes with her father’s untimely demise. Shakeela’s mother, who was once a junior artiste, brings all her children to Kerala’s buzzing metropolis Cochin. Being the eldest, Shakeela not only has to take care of her younger siblings but also earn a living. And thus, begins her journey from an innocent young girl to one of the most controversial south Indian actresses, whose sudden rise to fame was just as dramatic as her fall.
Writer-director Indrajit Lankesh chooses a story that has all the trappings of a riveting tale of a powerful protagonist. Desperate times, challenging circumstances, spurts of success and an antagonist, who wields all the clout to defeat any opponent. But the way Lankesh tells Shakeela’s (Richa Chadha) story and derives performances from able stars like Richa Chadha and Pankaj Tripathi is underwhelming, to say the least. The two extremely talented actors are locked in a face-off but it could have been stronger and their pursuit more believable. Having ‘Shakeela’ yo-yo between being a fan-girl and a fierce opponent of the southern superstar Salim (Tripathi) doesn’t come across convincingly at all. Just like why would she narrate her story to a script writer by taking a narco-test when she is the one who approached him to write her biopic in the first place?
