  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-8
You enjoy a movie even more if it has the unforeseeable factor adjoined to its premise. Thankfully, a number of storytellers in Bollywood are aiming to surprise, shock and charm you with attention-grabbing yarns you haven't witnessed earlier on the Hindi screen.

  •  India Today -Gayatri Jayaraman Rating-9
The internal chatter of a bride in the making, the blinking lights of the heartshaped 'Vijay weds Rani' sign that never quite finds its place, and the gradual development of each dancing member's role within the family, are the threads weaving the complex fabric of Kangna Ranaut's

  •  Bollywood Life -Prateek Sur Rating-10
Queen begins with a function that leads up to the actual wedding and believe us, the nuances that have been shown, describe perfectly as to what happens in an Indian wedding. Amidst the clinging of the bride’s bangles, the blinking lights of the decorations and the jittering of the relatives,

  •  Time Out -Aniruddha Guha Rating-8
The women are unstoppable. In Dedh Ishqiya, the lasses wisely chose each other over men, while Highway was about a girl who decided to grow up and shape her own life, even if it meant distancing herself from family. Vikas Bahl’s Queen gives us a female protagonist our films deserve

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-8
Kangana Ranaut delivers a performance that marks her lightyears ahead of any of her contemporaries. She conveys most through her pitch-perfect body language. The surprises and the shocks, the ecstasy and the confidence is all brought out by her non verbal mannerisms.

  •  Times of India -Meena Iyer Rating-8
The action begins in a middle-class Delhi household. The father is a mithaiwala; his daughter Rani Mehra or Queen (Kangana Ranaut) is naive, even appears stupid in today's context, a virgin, waiting to get married. Destiny has other designs for her.

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-7
When I made my first trip to Europe (under milder circumstances), it was incidentally Paris that completed my transition from pauper to King. I was told that I had a distinctly confident swagger—the kind you attain after conquering your greatest fear—when I walked through the airport arrival

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-8
Stop press: I have just seen an honest-to-goodness, full-fledged, full-bodied film. A FILM, hear me? Not an American sit com masquerading as one, or yet another meaningless 70s masala remake. ‘Queen’ is a significant Bollywood marker, a film that is intensely local and gloriously global,

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-8
This is a film that is no less tangy than the gol gappas that Rajouri Garden girl Rani Mehra rustles up in an Italian pizzeria in faraway Amsterdam. The bright and breezy Queen does not require even “two minutes” (that is how long it takes the heroine’s culinary output to activate

  •  Rediff -Raja Sen Rating-8
This is a story of girl meets girl.The girl, a pink-sweatered doll showered with sticky compliments by her mithaiwallah parents, is all set to be married. She wishes she could learn the dance steps from Cocktail her grandmothers are practicing, and that her best friend showed up in time

  •  Book My Show -Tanaya Ramyani Rating-8
Rani is getting married to Vijay. And today is her mehendi. Brimmed with excitement, her mind is full of questions. Why is Chintu not taking photographs? Why Mummyji is not wearing a sari? How will her first wedding night be? Random musings of a bride.

  •  India Today -Saurabh Dwivedi Rating-9
The story goes like this. Rani comes from Delhi's Rajouri Garden area. Her father's owns a sweet shop and quoting his friend in the movie, Rani 'bitiya' is pretty sweet. But in her own words, Rani's always been a good girl, listening to everyone but she's never been able to do anything

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-8
Life's not always good to those who live by the book and Rani (Kangana Ranaut) learns her lesson much too late almost when she gets dumped by her fiance Vijay (Rajkummar Rao) just a day before her wedding. Having yearned to witness her D-Day going perfectly,

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-9
One can go on and on tweaking adjectives to describe this stunning movie that not only enthralls you and have you holding your sides, laughing freely in some scenes, but also sends you home (male or female) with a feel-good attitude and that adrenalin rush of being one with Rani's

  •  The Front Row -Anupama Chopra Rating-7
Kangana Ranaut hasn’t been an easy actor to love. She’s been onscreen for 8 years. She’s won a National Award. She’s worked in blockbusters like Krrish 3. But there’s always something dark, edgy and volatile about her, both onscreen and off. She’s been intriguing, mysterious but rarely flat-out endearing.

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-8
There's a moment towards the end of Queen when our heroine Rani (Kangana Ranaut) sways on the edge of slipping back into her old life. She hesitates, the moment passes, and you feel Rani's sheer sense of liberation as she turns her back on a selfish man.

  •  DNA -Sarita Tanwar Rating-9
Queen is about a girl Rani (Kangana) from a small town, whose fiancé Vijay (Rajkumar Rao) decides a day before their wedding that he has gotten over her and they should not be together. Dumped and depressed, she is at her wits' end. The shy girl who has led a sheltered existence until then,

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-8
It's so apt that she's wearing an Alice in Wonderland T-shirt. After all, this Delhi girl has led such a protected, inhibited existence that even a small decision needed her fiancé's permission.Rani (Kangna Ranaut) is the quintessential “good girl” studying Home Science (naturally),

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-8
Rani Mehra (Kangna Ranaut) is not the super-smart heroine of your everyday Hindi film. On the contrary, she is a below-average Jane, who is sure to squirm uncomfortably if given too much attention. You perhaps meet and ignore hundreds of Ranis in your life as they bashfully

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Suparna Sharma Rating-6
WE all have a moment in our lives that makes us change course. See light. Take a decision. And if there isn’t one, we like to create a few, in our heads. One or more, these are moments when we grabbed a fistful of earth, real or metaphoric, and said, "God is my witness and I shall never…

  •  Yahoo Movies -Rummana Ahmed Rating-8
The best thing about ‘Queen’ is that Vikas Bahl has crafted memorable characters that don’t conform to Bollywood stereotypes. The story weaved around these characters stays always relatable, luring you into Rani’s (KanganaRanaut) world fuelling your wanderlust.

  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-8
Twenty-something Rani (Kangna Ranaut), daughter of a halwai in Rajouri Garden has never stepped out of Delhi. If she has to step out she does not do it without being escorted by her younger brother Chintu. Her knowledge of lip-to-lip kissing is limited to what Emraan Hashmi does in his movies.

  •  Business of Cinema -Udita Jhunjhunwala Rating-7
Rani (Kangana Ranaut) is not unusual. She is a simple girl from Rajouri in Delhi who has simple expectations from life. A student of Home Science, she helps her father at his sweet shop, which is where she first meets Vijay (Rajkummar Rao). Vijay persistently pursues Rani with red

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-8
Can it get better than this? On the eve of International Women's Day Vikas Bahl (Chillar Party) comes with such an emotionally satisfying and brilliantly played on screen beacon on Indian womanhood with 'Queen' under Viacom 18 and Phantom Films production, weaving together a magnificent

Remember that chick from your college or society, who you titled as ‘behan-ji’ because her style was that of stone age, she was confused about the capital of the U.S.A, she took permission from her mother before going out for even half and hour, she said, ‘haww wo drink karta hai’ when she saw

  •  India Today -Rohit Khilnani Rating-8
Vikas Bahl's Queen is one of those films that prove that you don't need big stars or big budgets to make good films. It's entertaining from the first scene till the last one and the best part is that it's not just a well made film, it's a hell lot of fun!Rani (Kangana Ranaut) is all set to marry Vijay
