Well the much hyped about movie Kurbaan starring Saifeena did not do well at the box office in fact, it had a below expectations opening. But whatever said and done the music is simply superb. From the love song Shukaran Allah to Ali Maullah the music works wonders for me. I think it completely is in sync with the theme of the movie and makes it stronger. I find it very rare that the background score empowers the movie much more than the visuals.
Okay, now how much ever I HATE Kareena Kapoor, there is no denying the fact that she looked amazingly pretty in the girl next door look and the muslim look with the hijab. Even if the movie did not do well at the box office I think it may just turn out to be another genie’s lamp for the haughty Kareena Kapoor (like Jab we met).
Coming to the costumes, those anarkali dresses in bright contrasting colors and a golden lace are completely in vogue and what every girl seems to wear these days! Its noteworthy how the pallet changes from BRIGHT to BLACK which I think could not agree more with the theme of the movie.
Another thing worth mentioning is Kiron Kher’s acting. She was amazing like always! I think we know who is going to bag all the awards for the female actor in a negative role!
Despite all these positives, the movie does not come along very beautifully. An extremely strong theme but sadly doesnt come off well. In fact, somewhere it just falls apart.
