Simplicity, Kangana Ranaut and Relatability make us not only love but live with Simran
Living life on her own terms are trademark Kangana Ranaut films. And realism is that of Hansal Mehta. It’s obvious what we will get when we mix these two.
If you are looking to spend your time in the most light-hearted and relaxed way, this film will be of help.
You will be treated with ‘sim’ (simmer; calmer) tones of Bollywood that ‘ran’ away with a friend a named LIFE. And that life is Kangana Ranaut.

After making some intense stories like Shahid and Aligarh, Hansal Mehta takes the cheerful track. His insight and subtlety remains the same.
The sense of connect and relate that comes from his movies is commendable.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
A Gujarati family in the US and their daughter who wants to live life on her own terms. And the rest is for you to find out in the film, the trailer kept us guessing and so will we too, else the film’s spark will not be experienced.
Loosely based on the life of Sandeep Kaur, an NRI in the United States who has been convicted of four bank robberies, the film mentions about it after ‘The End’. Talking about the same, with such a simple story you really wonder about the climax, and the film did the ending in the most unusual and fun way.
Even if it’s a fresh and unusually true story, it is simple too and hence predictability is something you will meet. But then it also keeps you wondering about the end, that’s a sign of good execution, that followed a good writing by Apurva Asrani. The script too is simple, lovable, easy-going and glee.
The family conversations are real but the comedy dose isn’t that high as we all expected form the trailer. Also, the storyline could have been more developed keeping par with Kangana’s act and at the same time the duration needed to be short by few minutes.
We are far away from the need of a hero in the film, but we have reached a point where we feel supporting cast should be equally involved, which this film lacks somewhere.
She is having a good time evidently and she makes sure the audience enjoys with her. She is outstanding, she is unmatchable, she makes Simran viable. The Queen, Kangana’s films and performances have a special place now. Though her Gujarati isn’t consistent but her act is adorable, the way she runs or laughs, just too effortless and charming. She fearlessly and confidently wears the next-door-girl look and hats off to her for breaking the all-decked-up heroine stereotype (which she has done in her films before too, but this time she takes the bar higher).
Sohum Shah’s (Sameer) is decent in his role, his character should have been more cooked up. Hiten Kumar is good and believable as the father. Kishori Shahane is convincing as the mother. We really liked the roles of bartender and moneylender from the film.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Music is just fine.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
It’s like a fun ride with Kangana as Simran aka Praful Patel. You don’t emotionally connect but you do feel the smile on your face while in her company.
