Patna Shuklla is a legal drama that aims to shine a light on the struggles of underprivileged individuals against a corrupt system. Led by a stellar performance from Raveena Tandon as Tanvi Shukla, a Patna-based lawyer, the film attempts to blend social commentary with a compelling narrative. While it succeeds in delivering a message of empowerment and justice, it falls short in terms of originality and execution.
The story follows Tanvi Shukla as she takes on a landmark case representing Rinki Kumari (Anushka Kaushik), an underprivileged student who refuses to accept her failed exam results. As Tanvi delves deeper into the case, she uncovers a larger conspiracy involving a marksheet scam, powerful politicians, and a corrupt university. The film explores themes of societal bias, administrative bullying, and the power dynamics within the legal system.
One of the film's strengths is its portrayal of female empowerment. Tanvi Shukla is depicted as a strong, determined woman who fights against all odds for justice. Raveena Tandon delivers a powerful performance, bringing depth and emotion to her character. The supporting cast, including Manav Vij and Anushka Kaushik, also deliver commendable performances, adding to the film's overall impact.
However, Patna Shuklla suffers from a lack of originality in its storytelling. The plot follows a familiar trajectory, and the courtroom drama feels formulaic at times. The film's attempts at humor and social commentary often fall flat, lacking the sharpness and wit needed to engage the audience fully.
Despite its shortcomings, Patna Shuklla is a well-intentioned film with a strong message. It sheds light on important social issues and showcases the power of perseverance and integrity in the face of adversity. While it may not break new ground in terms of storytelling, it is a solid addition to the genre of legal dramas and is worth a watch for its performances and message.
