Bollywood Mondays: 'Queen' (2014)
September 17, 2:30pm - 5:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Marine Sciences Building Room 100
'Queen' was a surprise hit and one of the biggest Bollywood box office successes of 2014. It stars Kangana Ranaut in an acclaimed performance as Rani ('Queen' in Hindi), a sheltered, middle-class young woman from a conservative family living in a Punjabi neighborhood of Delhi.
Engaged to be married, on the eve of the wedding Rani is dumped by her fiance Vijay (Rajkummar Rao). Devastated, she plucks up her courage and decides to go alone on the European honeymoon that the couple had planned. What results is a journey of a lifetime for Rani as she learns to navigate in the world, and finds her place in it along the way.
'Queen' is the third movie in the 16th UH Bollywood film series, running every Monday afternoon this fall. For a copy of the full film series schedule for the semester, please see the contact information below.
