Bollywood Crazies Opinion: This film will remind you of your school days very closely. Yes, there are several problems that students do face in schools, especially girls is what has been highlighted in this movie. This movie is simple, light hearted and apt to the point, which makes it interesting. I know, this film could have been better in making still a good attempt to tell the story. This movie holds you for around 2 hours which is interesting. I personally liked the idea of moxie movement as it united girls to support each other. I wish the teacher and principal portrayal would have been more better if shown in the positive side in the end of the film. This film could have been 15 to 20 minutes shorter.
The budget of Moxie movie hasn’t been revealed by the makers but it would have been made with around USD 20 to 25 million (146 to 182 crores) budget.
Altogether, despite some hiccups in the middle of the Moxie, overall its a good film.
Last word: Watch it for its story and Vivian both.
Bollywood Crazies Ratings: Distinction (70 Percent out of 100).
