5 Excellent

Julie is a wonderful storytelling, and you are going to enjoy her journey. It is all about a woman’s struggle in the industry and her rise and sorrows, the beautiful Raai Laxmi (Julie) is a naïve and simple girl with ambitions and talent. She makes it big in the South and then Bollywood. She encounters bad men, the underworld and also some good people. The narration is simply superb and the pace is just right. Overall, Raai Laxmi is brilliant; she carries the film on her shoulders and the girl seem to have potential.

Director (Deepak Shivdasani) has done a decent job; he has pegged the film as an erotica; however, there is much more depth. First half of the movie is better than the second half due to well-balanced content; however, the film could have been tighter in the second half. Having said that, one can still continue enjoying brilliant performance and good cinematography. Music is melodious (typical 70s and 80s types). Music is one of the biggest strengths of the film. All the tracks have been composed beautifully and according to the moment that the script demanded. Last but not the least, apart from the songs, superb background score was the biggest plus of the movie especially in the second half.

Conclusion: Highly recommended to all the cine goers especially if you care for women-centric films.
