Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood debut ‘Baywatch’ has released in India and the first day collections aren't much impressive. Critics from the west have already slammed the movie in every way possible. In fact, it is said to be one of the lowest rated movie in Hollywood. As it made an entry on Indian silverscreen, the failure was rather anticipated. Due to lack of story and cliched humour, the movie tanked among Indian audience as well. Although, movie didn't perform well, Priyanka as a villain has been praised by many Indian as well as Hollywood critics. But wait, its not the first time that PeeCee played a baddie in a flick.
Ms. Chopra stunned her fans with her phenomenal performance as a grey-shade character. Let’s talk about the movies that are one of the best of Priyanka Chopra.
Contrary to Baywatch, Aitraaz was one of the movies where Priyanka had an open field to demonstrate her acting prowess. She had a powerful role of impact in this Abbas-Mustan film. It brought an untouched topic on surface, that even men are subjected to sexual violence as well. Priyanka Chopra was seen playing the role of Sonia Roy who tries to sexually exploit her ex-boyfriend-cum-collague in lieu of monetary favours. While watching ‘Aitraaz’, one can clearly observe that Priyanka has completely transformed herself into a sultry sex-deprived 40-something woman. At one point of the movie, the audience had developed slight despise for her and that’s where Piggy Chops outshines as a villain. While Kareena Kapoor did her part well as a Messiah clad in saree to save the honour of her husband, it was Priyanka who in real terms, added the oomph to the movie. Honestly, one couldn’t imagine anyone else than her playing the role of Sonia Roy. Even if a sequel is planned out for ‘Aitraaz’, we would still like to see Priyanka playing the negative part.
The dark Indian comedy is personally praised by me for experimenting to such an extent. The movie was released in the year 2011, where terms like ‘Adultery’ and ‘Hypersexuality’ were hushed even before they were uttered. In that era, Priyanka Chopra played a role that earns her a lifelong applaud and praise. She featured as Susanna and endless yearning of love. She carries the audacious character of a slightly mentally-deranged woman who’s tragic episode with her mother leads to her disturbed mental status.
Though the movie underperformed on box-office, Priyanka Chopra was exclusively lauded by critics and movie buffs. If you’ve watched the movie, there’s no going back. According to critics, her performance as grey-shaded lead deserves to be singled out in particular. Some even named it as ‘role of a lifetime’. One cannot step back from lauding Ms. Chopra for a role, that most of her contemporaries would shy away from. As Susanna, the murderer of her 6 husbands, Priyanka Chopra sparkles like never before.
We can never forget these lifetime characters played by Priyanka Chopra and we're eagerly waiting for likes of them!
