Atrangi Re

Atrangi Re ★★★½

I liked the movie. Dhanush is phenomenal, as always, and his monologue in Tamil in a Bollywood movie really feels a welcome change. ARR's music elevates the experience to a whole new level - literally zero skips in the album. Sara (minus her accent) also gave a good performance, something I didn't expect after LAK2.

However, I'm not really sure for how long we can excuse Bollywood's half-ass attempts in including mental health and LGBTQ representation by saying "well atleast that's a start". The whole treatment of mental health left a very sour taste in my mouth, and for a movie set in a medical campus, I really wished they'd done a better job at it.
