    Gangubai Kathiawadi Movie Review

    Gangubai Kathiawadi from director Sanjay Leela Bhansali sees Alia Bhatt play the notoriously infamous Madame to various effects. On the one hand, the film is a dark and serious look at admittedly difficult parts of her legacy, while at the same time glossing over events to make them seem less sordid and violent than they in fact were. As Jason & Ryan review the film, you'll get both sides of the equation, as Jason took issue with the manner in which Gangubai Kathiawadi was represented, while Ryan felt the film did an estimable job telling the story of this flawed yet unique character that did much to advance the normalization of sex work in India and abroad. Either way, get ready for five musical sequences in a row (j/k) as we review Gangubai Kathiawadi right here on Esoterica Cinema. #moviereview #indiancinema #aliabhatt #sanjayleelabhansali #moviereviewpodcast #filmanalysis #filmcritic #filmcritique #filmcriticism ABOUT OUR CHANNEL Esoterica Cinema is the result of a great friendship between Jason Peters and Ryan Seybold.

Direction, Acting, Cinematography, Score, Sound Design, Narrative Structure, and Character Arcs are some of the many high-level and granular analysis provided on every episode.
