Never heard of Silk(y) Smita or whoever this movie is based on. Don't get me wrong - the acting by Vidya Balan was amazing. I'm surprised she took on this role including gaining weight for the movie character. There are some great moments / scenes / one-liners in the movie that keep the audience engaged and amused for the first half and then some. But the movie peters out during the end and does go out with the same pomp and zest (it could have). As far as Hindi movies go, this is a different ending (based on reality, so not much choice there). Would give it 2.5 stars out of 5, 2 stars out of 4.
