Dev D was the only movie where I liked her performance. Shaitan.. it was the movie and the music that I liked. Seeing the promos of Happy Ending I felt she's good at comedies. 

What irritates me most about her is that the way media/"class audience" praise her mediocre performance. IMO, she's the Abhay Deol of female celebs these days.. Praised only for they act in those Malta/Galapagos Film Festival award winning movies. 


LOL Right on! She's the darling of a certain type of Bollywood "in"/"cool" crowd -the kind who'd be jobless without Hindi movies and yet despise the core audience of Hindi movies. And she's overhyped to the skies. But now that she doesn't have Anurag to produce films for her or badger his friends to cast her she's probably on her way out.

Even I preferred Mahi in Dev D over Kalki, but I don't think Kalki is the one who should be getting blamed for Mahi not winning awards. Kashyap has his own mind and its the system that failed Mahi. Dibakar in an interview said that his films' budget decreases by a considerable amount when he casts someone who is not fair so I can see why he got Kalki in Shanghai. The fault lies with the producers/audience. IMHO.

I think age and the lack of a godfather has been against Mahi. Otherwise she's the perfect package - gorgeous woman who acts terrifically. Also even by very conventional Indian beauty standards, Mahi would be considered a lot more attractive than Kalki. 

But sadly what you and Dibakar said is true - there's a certain kind of look that gets relentlessly promoted. Kalki looks cosmopolitan - she looks like she could belong in New York or London. Mahi looks like she got off the train from Ludhiana yesterday. Ironically a woman who looks too Indian like Mahi is not too acceptable in Hindi films these days.

Bollywood has never been great at utilizing the great talent it has. It only rewards mediocrity and it is very disappointing.

Dunno about others but Kalki K stole the show for me in DevD. That doesn't mean Mahi G wasn't good, she did a great job as well. 
Don't know how well she will do in solo films but she did an amazing job in movies like ZNMD, DevD, YJHD and Shaitan. 

I did however go see her play in India and she was PHENOMENAL, the audience was cracking up throughout; she has a great sense of comic timing and has a great presence. She's also very interactive with the audience, I really enjoyed watching her. 

Same. I really like her and think she's a great actress. 

Back to the magazine cover..I think she has a hot body and looks good. But that face though. She's not pretty at all. Wow, you saw her in a play eraser. That's interesting. 

PS I don't know why Kalki is being blamed for Mahi not making it big. Last I recall..the critics didn't like her in SBAG2. If Mahi can't get the appreciation from audience and critics..that's Mahi's fault not Kalki. She needs to work harder and do variety of films. Yet she's stuck doing lame films and lame item songs. How are audience suppose to take her seriously? Everything isn't about skin color and industry connection. Last I checked Vidya didn't have any connection and she still got appreciation she deserved for her hard work and talent.

She was better in the first one, second one she was over the top.
