Vidya In Dirty Picture Or Kareena In Heroine- Who Did A Better Job?
While the industry is agog with competition between Barfi! and Heroine, there is an even more interesting comparison between Kareena’s film and another heroine-centric movie released last year- The Dirty Picture.
Heroine focuses on an aging superstar who is past her prime and struggling to recover. The Dirty Picture charted the rise of a small town girl who became a phenomenon and her subsequent fall from grace. Both movies focus on how cruel the industry is towards its actresses and this makes the comparison between Kareena’s and Vidya’s performance inevitable.
There is no doubt that both have done a commendable job. The question is- who has done a better job at portraying the dark underbelly behind the shine and glamour? Kareena did a great job portraying Mahi’s mood swings, her arrogance & vulnerability, and her need to be loved.
Vidya seemed as if she was relishing the naughty bits of her role and was very convincing. However, many feel she did not portray Silk’s downfall as well as she portrayed her rise.
Who was better? Who is THE heroine to play a heroine on the screen? Can the two performances even be compared? Rarely do fans get an opportunity to compare two such movies that have been released so close to each other. So what is your opinion?
