If naughtiness were to be captured in all its innocence, a virtue, difficult to find these days, one does not have to look much far. It oozes out of every frame of the Nokia advertisement in which Priyanka Chopra serenades. She slithers from one frame to another ala a model rummaging through the reams of clothes and throwing them aside with a disdain of innocence, and confident about floating across the screen in a pair of hot pants. It indeed is a Jalwa of Priyanka, which can be attributed as direct fallout of the phenomenal success that she attained with FASHION and which the advertisement fraternity took quite a lot of time to capitalize upon.
Priyanka has really arrived and once KAMINEY hits the screen it would open up a new vista in her oeuvre, as she would be donning the role of a Marathi mulgi with rustiness in stark contrast to the role that she has enacted so far. For her, the role of KAMINEY has come out at the opportune time as in the career path of a female star normally to display her prowess as an actor generally manifests through a role of a village belly or a rustic belly and it comes late.
Be it Hema Malini in SHOLAY or Madhuri Dixit in SAILAAAB or a Kareena Kapoor in CHAMELI, the opportunity to go bonkers is presented in ample octaves to the female actor. Remember Saira Banu in her various rustic avatars, she evolved into her own after enacting them. Or for that matter Bipasha Basu in OMKARA and Kareena Kapoor in the same film once again.
As a matter of fact it was a requiem for the female stars to play the role of a rustic or a village belly as soon as the opportunity presented during the beginning of the career itself.
But as the context of the films changed and they became urban the opportunity for a female actor to display the prowess started making late appearances. From this perspective Priyanka Chopra is indeed lucky and may be KAMINEY would indeed push her career to a new height.
