SHABRI-first woman gangster of Mumbai set to hit silver screenSHABRI is one of those Ram Gopal Verma films that were in cans for more than five years and it is going to be released on 26th August 2011. One does not know whether its release has got something to do with the phenomenal success that the book 'Mafia Queens of Mumbai', which has been co-authored by Vishal Bhardwaj, achieved. But, it is going to be a hard-hitting film, as till date the gangster films where based on fictionalized character, but SHABRI is in all probability the first film that is based on a real life character.
For Isha Koppikar, who has rather gone out of contention, SHABRI could emerge as one of the most meaningful roles that she has enacted in her acting career so far, and it would also help her to shed the tag of being a Khallas girl. SHABRI comes with the tagline "Woman of the species is deadlier than the male variety," a quote that was formulated by Rudyard Kipling.
Slums as a background for a film have always been a major success in the history of Hindi films, be it DAYAVAAN, AGNIPATH, GARDISH etc. The element that becomes the hit quotient is the struggle of the downtrodden against the system and it helps in striking a chord with the audience.
