After a long wait, J.P. Dutta’s remake of Umrao Jaan is finally out and it’s definitely worth the wait. Beautiful cinematography, exquisitely choreographed mujras (dances), and wonderful performances highlight this excellent film. In particular, Aishwarya Rai gives an amazing performance as Umrao — she’s back in true form with a character that allows her to show off her wide acting range. Shabana Azmi, Sunil Shetty, Abhishek Bachchan, and all the other actors shine in their characterizations. Anu Malik’s music is superb and perfectly fits with the dance sequences. Overall, I thought the film really did justice to the classic 1981 version — updating it and adding terrific song and dance sequences. Both versions tell a powerful story. It also reminded me a lot of Pakeezah (1971) and Devdas (2002) in theme, storyline, and visual design. Kudos to all involved.
